Kaitlin Olson's pinkie toe was broken at the time of this episode's shootings, limiting her movement throughout.

The McPoyles barricade the door from the inside, but Paddy's pub front door opens out not in, so barricading from the inside wouldn't do any good.

The McPoyles take their revenge against the Gang from the events of "The Gang Gets Invincible" episode.

Contains numerous Die Hard references: the broken glass, the walkie-talkies, the vents, Frank's dirty undershirt, taping the gun to his back, yippee kayea Mr Falcon, and dropping the McPoyle off the roof.

Frank's line when he pulls the gun on the McPoyles ("Yippee-ki-yay, Mister Falcon") is a reference to the infamous censorship of Bruce Willis's line "Yippee-ki-yay, Motherfucker" in the edited-for-TV version of "Die Hard 2."

One of my favorites, This episode breaks up the standard format of the gang having their way with the outside world, which eventually results in dyer consequences for those who are unlucky enough to be caught in their wake. This episode sets a different scene, with one of the best sets of recurring characters, "The McPoyles." The base of the plot (as stated above) is that the gang will finally get what's coming to them. That prospect alone makes this episode stand out.

Additionally, I LOVE the McPoyles. They seemed to have cornered the market on a brand of creepy, that you just can't wrap your mind around, to simply categorize them as a certain type. Mcpoyles are definitely the first to do a lot of disturbingly funny things that I have never seen portrayed by ANY other character on television. EVER

I think the side plot with frank was only necessary to keep him out of the main plot on this one.

I loved it!
