The results of the three possible futures were:
1. Kyle hiding in the cabinet under the stairs and needing a tee for everything.
2. Kyle becoming a human pinata because he thinks getting hit leads to success.
3. Kyle becoming a killer because he thought success came from hurting others.
Jim Belushi's son, Robert Belushi plays grown-up Kyle in this episode.
This episode is a lot like the movie "The Butterfly Effect". Like Ashton Kutcher's character in the movie, every time Jim makes a little change it makes a big effect in each time era.
Cheryl says that she thinks she needs to go to the doctors to get ommoxicilin for her flu. However ommoxicilin is an antibiotic used generally for infections, it would not be used to treat the flu.
When Gracie hands Jim his false ID, she says, "Here we go, Mr. Dimas." This presumably refers to Jim's nonexistent "friend" Gus Dimas in Season 3's "Imaginary Friend".
When the T-Rex skeleton collapses, the pieces sound as if they are made from polystyrene plastic instead of solid rock like real fossils. This suggests the museum has an artificial display skeleton, but the imitation bones were really created so that the actors could lift and handle the immense pieces.
When Cheryl and Dana go to the movies, they reveal that the movie stars Matthew McConaughey. Two months before this episode aired, Matthew McConaughey's hit movie "We Are Marshall" opened. Kimberly Williams-Paisley played McConaughey's wife in that movie.
Blooper: Cheryl claims she purchased Jim's favorite red chair with the money from the "Chicks Gone Wild" Video. This all occurred while they were married. However, in a previous episode, Cheryl claims the chair came from the apartment she had before she married Jim. The two comments are not simultaneously possible.
After Jim calls Cheryl by her middle name Mabel to scold her, Cheryl scolds Jim back by calling him "James Orenthal", revealing Jim's middle name. Jim Belushi's middle name is not "Orenthal" but rather is Edgar. However, O.J. Simpson (of football and courtroom fame) has the full name Orenthal James.
Mike Murphy (the bully) is also the name of a member of the production staff on the show.
Murph was unhappy with Kyle for calling a timeout during dodgeball, the same "infraction" for which young Jim was unhappy with young Reverend Pierson in episode "Father Disfigure."
