Trivia: According to Adam Scott, during a season 2 wrap party, he witnessed Rider Strong hugging Ethan Suplee and Blake Soper. Scott then went over and hugged Strong, which caused Strong to aggressively shove Scott away and then take off in the other direction. Scott kept this to himself for nearly 30 years, finally revealing it during his appearance on the Pod Meets World podcast. Strong, Soper and Suplee have no recollection of the incident. The aforementioned individuals have speculated that either Suplee or Soper, who were known to be pranksters on-set, may have grabbed Strong's butt during the hug and caused him to think Scott did it.
Trivia: Blake Soper and Ethan Suplee wrote and pitched a Catcher in the Rye-inspired script to producer Michael Jacobs. He told them they wouldn't buy the script, but offered them contracts to be regular cast members moving forward. They subsequently never heard from him nor appeared on the show again. Suplee admitted to having a drug problem at the time, and thinks that may have been the reason he didn't return.
Trivia: Late professional wrestler Vader, who played a fictionalized version of himself and Frankie's father, once told Ethan Suplee about the time one of his eyes was popped out of its socket during a wrestling match, which he himself then popped back into place. Suplee said he thought Vader was just pulling his leg when telling him the story.
Trivia: After earning money from his role in the show, Ethan Suplee took his dad on a vacation in the Caribbean. He encountered some children at the pool and was worried they would make fun of his weight. As it turned out, the kids approached him to talk about Boy Meets World. Suplee said he feels this was the first time in his life that his dad was proud of him.
Trivia: This episode is Ethan Suplee's acting debut.
