Voice CastEdit


  • While the disabled band of inmates all die in this episode, it is to be noted again that the series operates on a loose sense of continuity. This allows Guns to reappear in the following episode.
  • Adam Modiano confirmed that the Chinese inmate with half of a face was the same person who had half of his face used as a transplant for Jared in Mayhem Donor (an episode that he had co-written).
  • The opening with Jailbot disguised as Jesus had to be edited to please the Standards and Practices department at Adult Swim, as the censors objected to the visual of "Jesus" actually leaping off his cross.
