* EnforcedPlug: The show isn't extremely subtle about its fake ProductPlacement. On a couple of occasions, the episode wedges representatives of sponsors into the "Doctor to Doctor" segment. In the case of Ron Don Valante, proprietor of Ron Don's Play Pen, Valante got the spot despite having nothing to do with the episode's topic (Church.) In the "Horses" episode, it's obvious the topic was chosen by guest Pablo Myers, owner of Myers' Super Food, so he could plug a canned horse meat sale.
