Trivia: Episode 2-21, "G.E.D.": Randy fills in the bubbles on a GED test form in the shape of a sailboat. This is a reference to Ethan Suplee's role in Mallrats, where he played a character that could not see a sailboat hidden in a picture.

Trivia: Most of Catalina's speeches in Spanish (the ones that are not translated) are actually actress Nadine Velasquez speaking to the camera, addressing the viewers. For example, in episode 1-11 (Barn Burner), although it appears that she is throwing insults at Joy, she is actually saying "I want to take this moment to thank our Latino audience for watching. And for those of you who can understand me but who are not Latino, I want to commend you for learning a second language".

Larceny Of A Kitty Cat - S2-E4

Trivia: In the part where Randy is listening to the love song and Earl is standing behind the car, at 6:27 we can see the actor playing Earl starting to laugh. It's only a second (the rest probably got cut) but it is pretty cute seeing him laugh like that. It must have been really funny filming this scene. :)

Stole a Badge - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: At the end when Stuart decided to let Earl go he pulls the list out of his pocket, and gives it back to Earl, and it is all crumpled up, but a second later when we see Earl holding the note it is neatly folded.

Inside Probe: Part 1 - S4-E25

Police officer: It's police policy not to waste resources looking for a missing person in the first 24 hours because they usually show up on their own, and after 24 hours, if they're still missing, it usually means they're dead and we don't look for them that hard then either
