    • Vint says his father died in the bathroom. Interestingly enough, Fran also died in a bathroom, at the Bigger Jigger.

    • Olga picks the category "Room With No View" during the family game of Pyramid near the end of the episode. This just also happens to be the title of the 3rd episode from the same season this one airs in.
