Somewhere in the episode, Cummings asked Miranda Cosgrovee about her "wild side," discussing punk rock and hair dyes, when Cosgrove said:

“I actually do cuss a little.”

Cummings promptly asked Cosgrove about her favorite cuss word, and the actress replied with no hesitation. She said:

“Probably f**k.”
