  • The Hot Wheels cars, as well as several other season 5 experiments, were sold on e-Bay. The last thing for the show that Jon sold on e-Bay was Summer's door, but he kept getting false bids and nobody actually bought it. Now, Jon has declared that he's done with e-Bay.
  • Jory's lower third reads "unlicensed driver." At the time this was filmed, Jory's driver's license had expired, and he had failed to renew it, since he mostly rides his bike.
  • Jory has since renewed his license, and he drove the Ford Fiesta quite a bit. However, he never got a Massachusetts license. He just renewed his New Hampshire one.
  • Only two of the cars were actual Hot Wheels. The other two were "cheap imitators." The blue car that "won" was a real Hot Wheels.


  • Jory: And, as always, the Sharp carousel microwave. I just love pushing her buttons, you know? Have you ever had a woman like that?
  • Riley: (in exaggerated Boston accent) What was Jeff Gordon's number? 24?
  • Jory: So, this one I don't think ever caught fire.

Riley: Nice! The blue car is the winner!

Jon: Blue car wins!

  • Jory: I'm your host, Jory Caron, signing off. "Signing off"? What?

Jon: "Finishing up"? I don't know!

Riley: This isn't AOL!
