Andy Shapero had his political awakening when he was talking politics with his father after years of estrangement following his parents' divorce. Andy carried his new-found confidence to college, and used it to become a campus leader and self-confessed 'Deaniac' during the 2004 campaign of Howard Dean. Also in this episode, Phil DuMas was waiting to board a flight while drinking a huge cup of coffee. When he finally reached the ticket counter, he was rocking side-to-side, doing what his family nicknames "the pee pee dance." When the attendant asked him what was wrong, Phil explained he had a case of "PPD." Little did he know that airline personnel understand PPD to mean "paranoid personality disorder."
