Music: Al sings the Born Free theme song.

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the Marx Brothers movie "At the Circus".

Edits: the following lines in italic were edited out of the season four DVD:
Al: Don't let them bother you, Marcy; ignore them, chew your cud and hold your horns up high.
Marcy: Excuse me, but did a pig just burp in here? Oh well. Here I am feeling sorry for myself when my poor Steve has been out looking for work all day long. He must be exhausted. You know, he's been coming home even more tired than I am.
[Marcy doesn't notice Steve as he hops past the patio door, while he is changing his clothes.]
Marcy: Have you seen him?
Peggy: Well, he was nowhere near the zoo.
Al: Don't look at me. I'm blind from hunger.

[Steve bursts in, wearing his suit.]
Steve: Oh, boy, what a day.
