    • The title of this episode is based upon the famous quote I'm going to make you an offer you can't refuse from the 1972 movie The Godfather.

    • Fran: ...and sirloin and t-bone and flank, oh my! This is a play on the famous line from The Wizard of Oz, "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my"!

    • Fran woke up from her sleep and discovered that there was something in her bed. Afraid that it might have been something bad from the mobster she was dating, Fran removed the covers to find a toy horse's head there. She screamed untill she realized it was actually Gracie's. This is an allusion to the movie The Godfather, where Jack Woltz found himself in bed with the severed head of his prized horse, courtesy of Don Vito Corleone, after Jack refused to sign Johnny Fontane for his new movie.

    • Fran: Oh, I just loved the show. Didn't you love Beauty and the Beast? The actor playing Tony originated the role of Gaston in the Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast.
