    • Carey: So Lance, tell me what are your goals in life. Lance: Oh, that's easy! I want to grow a dorsal fin and gills. Mr. Moseby: Okay, goals that don't involve you becoming a comic book character!

    • Carey: So Launce... (Lance laughs) Mr. Moseby: What's so funny? Lance: She called me Launce! Ooh, does that mean in the morning, I put on my paunts? Carey: Only if you live in Fraunce! (Both Carey and Lance laugh) Mr. Moseby: Okay, you know what, if you two are not going to take this seriously, I have more important things to do! Lance: Come on Mr. Moseby, give me one more chaunce!

    • Maddie: (about Lance) Well, London, instead of trying to change him, why don't you try to change a little? London: I am not growing gills. Ooh, at least not until they invent diamond gill rings.

    • Ashley Tisdale only appears in two scenes in this episode.

    • This episode is VERY similar to the episode of Drake and Josh, "Movie Job" where Josh does all the work, Drake takes credit and is promoted for it, Josh comes with an idea that ends up making things worse.

    • We learn that Lance's last name is Fishman.

    • This is the first time in the series Lance speaks to Arwin.

    • Lance's 7th appearance Jasmine's 4th appearance Leah's 4th appearance Amy's 4th appearance Holly's 5th appearance Wayne's 3rd appearance

    Trivia (2)

    • A part of this episode is in the opening credits: when Carey is on the couch beside Lance and rocks back and forth (however it is shot from a different angle in the episode then the credits).

    • When Carey and Mr. Moseby help Lance become cool, you can see camera lights reflecting off of the microwave in the kitchen area.

    Allusions (3)

    • In the scene where Lance walks into the ball and everyone stares, he proceeds to say, "It's Fishman, Lance Fishman". That is similar to James Bond, when he introduces himself, "It's Bond, James Bond".

    • Zack: Second verse same as the first... This sounds similar to a line in the song "Prove My Love" by the Violent Femmes. However in the song it goes: "Third verse, same as the first".

    • This episode has the same title as the 1980's sitcom, Who's the Boss?
