    • German Title: Mit harten Bandagen

    • In a commercial while Hal and Murray are commenting on the baseball game, Murray advertises "Bernbaum Beer". This episode is written by Paul Bernbaum; the beer's name is surely a nod to him.

    • Cody's fondness of motorcycle racing (preferring it to baseball) reflects Perry King's real-life love of motorcycling.

    Trivia (2)

    • Nitpick: The bits of wood fall from the back of the truck perfectly to make a sturdy ramp for Cody's commandeered motorcycle!

    • Nitpick: In this episode, Cody isn't very keen on baseball, yet in several earlier episodes, he's been seen to be interested in it (most notably in the second season episode 'Mirage', where he and Nick have a bet on a game and are excitedly watching it on TV). In fairness, he doesn't say that he doesn't like it, but it still does seem to conflict slightly.
