    • The Duration of this episode is '23:36.'

    • This is the first and only appearance of Sam's cousin, the tattoo artist.

    Trivia (8)

    • The cap cam that Sam wears is the same one used in the previous episode, "iGot Detention."

    • In one scene, the police disturb an iCarly live web show, claiming that a truck had obstructed their view. However Carly lives on the eighth floor, making this impossible, unless the truck was more than twenty meters (about 65 feet) tall.

    • During the stakeout at the apartment, the two cops were behaving inappropriately. Spanky was still bullying Spencer by spanking him like when they were kids and the detective used Spencer's credit card to order pizza, which is illegal and it's also inappropriate professional behavior, so Spencer should have the right to file a complaint about both of the police officers.

    • The convenience store that Carly, Sam, and Freddie go to in this episode is called Schneider's Convenience Store, in reference to the show's creator, Dan Schneider.

    • At the very end of the episode, Spencer handcuffs Spanky to the sofa and spanks him with a broom. This means he deliberately beat up a police officer, which is illegal.
