Non Speaking Character
- In the UK, there is a reality TV show with the same title. There is no relation between the two.
- On that basis, the episode name is a reference to Kermit the Frog's line "It's not easy being green", which in turn was paraphrased from the song "Bein' Green."
- It is revealed Dale is a certified scuba diver
- In the sequence where Dale is allowed to handle Boomhauer's car, the theme song from Live and Let Die, is heard playing.
- This is the first in a few episodes where Hank is arrested.
- This is the first episode where Sally appears.
- When Bobby is handing Peggy an environmental ticket, the letters on the "Tea" jar behind Peggy move up a bit.
