When Charlie and Mac get to LA in "The Gang Beats Boggs", Mac pointedly states how gloomy the overcast city looks.

* According to Charlie Day, during a recent interview on Conan O'Brien, Danny [=DeVito=] has stated that he's up for pretty much ANY storyline the show might throw at him save for one topic: prison rape. Apparently, [[WagTheDirector [=DeVito=] informed series creator Rob [=McElhenney=]]] that was the ''only'' type of shock plotline that he refuses to have anything to do with.[[note]]Offhand jokes about prison rape are apparently fair game, though. In season six's "Mac's Mom Burns Her House Down", there's a joke about Frank thinking that prison rape happens at nursing homes.[[/note]]
