* GallowsHumor: With a rotten tooth Chuck mentions to Wilson, a volleyball, that his dentist back home was named Dr. Spalding. The joke gets an IronicEcho later, but when we hear the name again after [[spoiler:the man who married Kelly identifies himself as an acquaintance of Spaulding]], suffice to say, the joke is a lot less funny.
