    Trivia (30)

    • When Mrs. Puff drives her car into the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs doesn't know who she is... even though he dated her in this episode.

    • Wouldn't SpongeBob know that Squidward was joking because in the "One Bite" episode, which aired before, he says he always comes to work at 3 AM to count the sesame seeds and has never mentioned a ghost?

    • If Mrs. Puff already had a husband, she is not single. She's a widow.

    • In one scene, when Mrs. Puff is standing at her door, the yellow lace on her dress turns blue.

    • The fish who applies for the job is never seen again.

    Allusions (3)

    • SpongeBob: "At Night" Sequence SpongeBob's "at night" sequence ("I'm... at night") is similar to Rachel Green's (Jennifer Aniston) "naked" sequence ("I'm... naked") from the Friends episode "The One in Vegas Part 1."

    • The 'Nosferatu' character who was flicking the lights on and off at the end is from the first ever vampire movie, "Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror", made in 1922. When the characters ask who was flicking the lights on and off, it cuts to a shot actually taken from the original movie.

    • Squidward: The walls will ooze green slime? The walls oozing slime is a spoof on the scenes from the movie "The Amityville Horror" where the demon house bleeds from the walls.
