    Trivia (1)

    • At the end of the episode, Justin tells Raja how to decapitate an opposing character in the video game he is playing by "...press[ing the] A [button] and tap[ping the] B [button]..." Justin and Raja are holding what are clearly controllers for the PlayStation series of videogame consoles, whose buttons are not labeled by letter, but rather graphical symbol (circle, X, triangle, and square), and numbered trigger buttons (Left and Right 1, 2, & 3).

    Allusions (1)

    • The episode title: Raja at Sixteen is an allusion to the coming of age television movie and series James at 15 (then James at 16) with Lance Kerwin which was considered somewhat groundbreaking in the late seventies. James, like Raja, was living in a place quite removed from his customary home and dealing with several of the same teen issues.
