*** ''Buckets'' of symbolism. Consider the following:
**** One of the names of the devil, Beelzebub, comes from the name of a demonic creature known as "lord of the flies". More than any other time in the entire show, Orel's faith is being tested and Clay is being burdened by his own demons; make no mistake, in that moment, Orel was confronting Satan himself in the most realistic fashion you'll ever find on television.
**** Flies are attracted to filth, specifically festering and putrefaction; Clay is indulging in his vices well past the point of self-destruction, but the more he drinks, and the more he rants, the more he decays his image in the eyes of his son. By the time Orel finally says "I hate you", the flies are gone and Clay passes out dead to the world, symbolizing that any affection or hope Orel had for his father isn't even enough to attract flies.
**** And, a bit crude, but relevant: Clay's hair and jacket are brown. Of course he's covered with flies, ''he's a piece of shit''.

** It's implied that the Posabules are just as bad as the Puppingtons, considering that "The Lord's Prayer" showed Christina being beaten by her father when Orel was by Clay.

* FridgeHorror: Consider how awful the Puppingtons' home life is. Now consider how, while Shapey runs right back to his mother in "Numb", Block stays with her. Adding that it was Bloberta who first realized the difference of the adults, how horrible must the Posabules really be?!

* If you think about it, Clay really does have a dead-end job. [[spoiler: Once you're already the mayor, you really can't get much higher.]]

* FridgeBrilliance: Orel is waving to God, not the camera, in the show's opening.

** The "Lost Commandments" are actually a family tradtion for Clay. In "Passing", A young Clay is seen quoting one of these "Lost" Commandments.

** 'Nuther FridgeHorror moment: I dunno which episode it was exactly, but Clay references Satan as the "Lord of the Flies." In the hunting trip episode, while Clay is raving like a lunatic while drunk, we see that there are quite a few flies crawling all over him as he becomes angrier. Symbolism?

*FridgeHorror: When you consider the fact that Orel's short claymation film includes his dad's belt ''wrapping around puppet Orel like a snake''.
