Other mistake: When Chet is getting on everyone's case about everything that is wrong with the house, he says to Lisa, "I didn't think it was a whale's d__k, honey" in reference to the missile going through the house.

Wyatt: By the way, why are we wearing bras on our heads?
Gary: It's ceremonial.

Chet: Like your panties.
Wyatt: [walking back into kitchen] It's a joke, Chet. Really.
Chet: No. That is not a joke. That is a severe behavioral disorder. Next thing you know you'll be wearing a bra on your head.
