    • Goof: When Kenny is hitting on Ashley, a hotter girl walks by and he runs after her ditching Ashley. The girl and Kenny run down the hallway and then turn left. Carlton sees what happens and instead of comforting Ashley he runs after the hot girl as well. He turns right instead of left, even though he clearly saw where they went.

    • Will: Or maybe I'm more obsessed with breasts and thighs as Colonel Sanders ever was. An obvious spoof to Colonel Sanders, the man who single handedly built the KFC franchise today.

    • Will: I have fallen and I can't get up. Will's line is a popular catchphrase of 1990s culture based upon a rather cruel joke. The phrase was originally used in a TV commercial for a medical emergency service called Life Alert. It featured an elderly lady named Mrs. Fletcher who had fallen in her home and used the device to call for help.

    • Kenny: There's always room for Jell-O. This line is a from the famous Jell-O advertising slogan.
