At the end of the episode, Frankie's Dad enters Cory's house through the back door. As he is not a frequent guest of the family, he should be knocking at the front door.
Shawn says he hates poetry. Later, he'll learn to love it, and actually write some of his own.
In this episode, we learn that Mr. Turner comes from a wealthy family in Connecticut.
In this episode, Amy calls Frankie's father "Francis", but in The Thrilla' In Philla', Mr. Feeny calls him "Leslie".
Mr. Feeny: That, Mr. Stechino, is the test of a real friendship.
Frankie: But what if Cory and Shawn fail that test?
Mr. Feeny: Ha, welcome to my life.
Cory: I tried to get away on my bike but Frankie jogged behind me the entire way. I mean, pound for pound, he is the fastest man on earth.
Frankie: I walk alone in this world, except for the grilled cheese sandwich in my pocket.
Shawn: I hate poetry!
Cory: Shawn, if our friend who's going to let us live likes poetry, then we like poetry!
Shawn: Oh, poetry! I thought you said...liver.
Shawn nicknames a 7th grader "Dances with Sweaters"; an allusion to the Kevin Costner film, Dances with Wolves.
Frankie: Here I wander, like the Israelites in the days of Yul Brynner.
A reference to the film The Ten Commandments, in which Yul Brynner played Rameses.
