Trivia
Although Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee had worked together before, producer Gregory Thomas Garcia didn't discover Suplee because of that--he discovered him while watching the DVD version of Without a Paddle (2004) because another actor in it had been recommended to him. What convinced Garcia to bring Suplee in for an audition were comments about him he heard on the DVD's commentary track. One of the actors in the commentary told the story of a dispute between the film's director and Suplee. The scene the actor described was one where Suplee's character was supposed to be pointing a gun at some people Suplee and others had captured. The commentary noted that Suplee had insisted that he shouldn't point his gun at them after all, since in Suplee's mind, it had taken so long to capture the people that it had given the character time to rethink his motives. Suplee got his way in the scene, over the director's objections. The fact that Suplee would think so much about such a small detail was enough to get him an audition. Garcia and the show's writers have subsequently used Suplee's attention to detail to the show's advantage, in various "pestered by a bee" background activities that Suplee's character does in various scenes. The first such scene was an improvisation in the pilot, where Suplee is looking up at the ceiling with his mouth open.

Every time Earl's picture (or otherwise graven image) is taken, his eyes are closed. This is considered to be a nod to Forrest Gump (1994), in which every photograph of Forrest shows him with his eyes closed.

In the scenes where pregnant "Joy" is in the shower, the body double is wearing flesh colored panties, just barely visible at the bottom of the screen. This goof is likely not visible on CRT televisions that over-scan.

Earl: You know the kind of guy who does nothing but bad things, and then wonders why his life sucks? Well... that was me. Every time something good happened to me, something bad was always waiting around the corner. Karma. That's when I realised I had to change. So, I made a list of everything bad I've ever done and, one by one I'm going to make up for all my mistakes. I'm just trying to be a better person. My name is Earl.

Q
What episode is the "Laugh'n Sniff" episode and how does it work?
A
"My Name Is Earl: Get a Real Job (#2.22)"" is the episode that is the "Laugh'n Sniff" episode. How it works is, you purchase a copy of "TV Guide" Magazing, issue for April 30, 2007 to May 06, 2007 and take out the "Laugh'n Sniff" card and wait for the episode to air. While you are watching the episode, a number will appear on the screen and whatever number appears on the screen, that is the number that you scratch on the "Laugn'n Sniff" card and then you sniff the card to the coresponding number.
