Stinger Quote

Lucky: "Scary to think about the road not traveled, huh?"


Lucky states in this episode that if he never took a cash advance on his credit card, then he never would have slipped on pee at the Costco. However this contradicts the Season 12 episode Life: A Loser's Manual where Lucky states he "never had one of those credit card things.


  • When Bobby tells Lucky that he would like to try eating a "chip off the line", Lucky says that he'll help Bobby "run down that dream." Runnin' Down a Dream is a hit song by Tom Petty, who voices Lucky.
