    • Mama Bravo (To her angry mob, when leaving to get the wool thief): Take whatever booty you find, but remember, the beast is mine!

    • Johnny: So was I funky fresh? Woman: You were the bomb! Johnny: Was I full in effect? Woman: You were in the house! Johnny: Was I all that? Woman: Oh, plus a bag of chips.

    • Main Flavor: If you're gonna be down, you gotta wear a cap. Johhny: Cap? Main Flavor: Yeah, you gotta find a hat. That's phat kid. Johnny: It's phat? Main Flavor: Yeah man, phat, like in cool. (Main Flavor grabs a jester hat off the wall, and puts it on Johnny's head) Johnny: Am I down yet? Heavy C: No, but you're stupid and fat.

    • CD Biggins: Yo, check this out J.B., if you wanna be hip hop, you gotta have two things; Attitude and style. Heavy C: Yeah, but if you wanna look stupid fresh, you gotta get with the right sneaks and cap. Johnny: Mister, I don't think you want to make me look stupid. CD Biggins: Nah, nah, in hip hop, stupid means really something that's stupid fly. It's really cool man, you know what I'm saying?

    • Woman: Yo, I can't be with a man if he's not down. Unless I see you at the concert, you can talk to my hand. (Woman puts her hand in Johnny's face) Johnny: Is that a date?

    Trivia (4)

    • The Sumo wrestler cameraman Vendela fights in Talk to Me, Baby is the same guy that squished Johnny back in the pilot episode.

    • In Hip Hop Flop, we see that the place where the Round Pound hang out is called the "Rayve Club".

    • In Blanky Hanky Panky we see how Johnny looked like when he was a baby.

    • The episode Talk to me, Baby introduces the character of Vendela. She has already been mentioned by Johnny before in the episode Bungled in the Jungle.

    Allusions (4)

    • Mama Bravo's speech to the angry mob: During Blanky Hanky Panky, Mama Bravo says the following: Take whatever booty you find, but remember, the beast is mine!. These same lines were previously spoken by Gaston the hunter, in the Disney animated movie Beauty and the Beast (1991).

    • The Round Pound: The rap group that comes to town in the episode Hip Hop Flop, The Round Pound, is the spoof of another real-life rap group, The Fat Boys.

    • Vendela's super-heroine costume: When Vendela becomes a super-heroine, her costume is similar to both Supergirl's (the color theme), and Wonder Woman's (the "V" logo on her chest, instead of a "W"). Both Supergirl and Wonder Woman are famous characters from the DC comic books.

    • Vendela's super-heroine transformations:

      To change into her super-heroine costume, Vendela first spins around, similar to how Diana Prince would turn into Wonder Woman in the live-action series Wonder Woman, based on the DC Comics comic book super-heroine of the same name. The show starred Lynda Carter in the main role and aired on both ABC and then CBS between 1975-1979. Vendela's costume here is similar to Wonder Woman's, but also to Supergirl's.

      When Vendela turns back to her normal self, she twitches her nose, followed by a special sound effect. This is an allusion to the sitcom Bewitched, which ran for eight seasons on ABC from 1964 to 1972. It starred Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stephens, a witch who would frequently cast most of her spells by twitching her nose, accompanied by a sound similar to the one heard in this episode.
