- During the Second World War, the wives of American soldiers who died on the battlefield were notified by hand delivery of chocolate-covered graham crackers shaped like teddy bears. (Knowing the woman was newly-widowed, oftentimes a messenger would return later to "console" her.)
- After the war, Europe briefly had a Teddygram-based economy.

- Stuart wants to make a Teddygrams joke, but was too late. Elliott tells him not to worry about it, because they made the Platonic ideal of Teddygram jokes, like, one hundred episodes ago.
Elliott: Now, why would he learn by telegram? His son didn't die overseas! Dan: I just imagine that everyone whose son dies, they get a telegram about it. Stuart: Yep. Somebody from the War Department shows up. Dan: Well, he was an FBI agent. Stuart: Sure. Elliott: That's not even close. Not even close. Dan: They use telegrams. But ultimately there was just... Stuart: Teddy Grahams? Elliott: All the World War II wives, whose husbands were off at war, dreaded those Teddygrams. Dan: We're sorry about your son. Here's some, here's some Teddy Grahams. Maybe that'll cheer you up. Stuart: Those chocolate ones are so gross, dude. Dan: They're little bear cookies. Maybe that'll take his place in your heart. Elliott: Maybe this will ease some of the sting. It's a little cracker that looks like a bear. Anyway, I got a lot of Teddygrams to give out today. I'll see you later, I guess. Stuart: Wait a minute! So he might see her again? Like, "I'll see you around"? Elliott: It's a little distasteful to hit on a woman just then, but he knows she's single. He's gonna come back...with more Teddy Grahams. Stuart: "Catch ya on the flip side!" Dan: ...quitting time...she's all alone in this world. Elliott: Yeah. So it looks like a, like a Teddygram delivery guy can give her... Dan: Any man who gives her a Teddygram, she's just gonna be so grateful. Elliott: Well, that's what it was like in Europe after the war. The oncoming soldiers could just give girls Teddy Grahams and they could do whatever they wanted, you know. Stuart: Yeah, I didn't know that. Elliott: It was a Teddygram-based economy. Stuart: So we, we all really hated this movie. That's too bad. I was really hoping this would be fun. Dan: Thinking about the time we've spent talking about Teddygrams... Elliott: So far in this episode devoted the movie Untraceable we've talked about: Teddy Grahams, cutting holes in things and putting your penis in them...what else? Anything else of note?
