    • The birthday song (Someone's got a birthday I wonder who) the kids were singing at Dale's party, during his flashback was the same song Bill sang in "Hank and the Great Glass Elevator".

    • Tagline: Jerry Popper doing his impression of windshield washers.

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • Octavio who made his first appearance in this episode, was mentioned back in "'Twas the Nut Before Christmas" by Dale.

    • As Dale is taking photos of Bobby's ventriloquist doll you can see he is taking the photo from the upper right of where Bobby is standing in his house. However the angle of which he takes the photo from would be impossible as it's to the left of their screen doors and there is no window or see-through material from that angle.
