- Linda states that Gloria and Al had not kissed in twenty years, implying a decline in their romantic lives despite loudly having sex with each other in "Crawl Space." Linda, however, may have been fast asleep when they did so in "Crawl Space" and was probably unaware of any kissing that may have happened in the twenty years since.
