At the end of the episode, Shawn says "Cory, Eric, guess what? I blew up another mailbox." By saying this, he is referring to season 1 episode 17, "The Fugitive," in which Shawn blows up the mailbox outside Alan's grocery store with a cherry bomb.
Although Ben Savage plays "Rory" in the parody sitcom, "Kid Get's Acquainted With Universe", Cory only has a few lines in this episode.
The show "Kid Gets Aquainted with the Universe" is an obvious self-parody of the series. The living room set is the same as the Matthews house. The actors' names are parodies of the Boy Meets World actors' names. Rider Strong is Schnyder Strong, and Ben Savage is Ben Sandwich.
Richard Lee Jackson (Kenny), is the brother of Jonathon Jackson, who plays Ricky three episodes later in, Starry Night.
In this episode, Shawn admits that he is "technically" a virgin, while Eric and Jack reveal that they're not.
Jack says that he's the oldest, but in Boy Meets Real World, Eric says that he's eight months older.
At the beginning of this episode, Topanga's pencil changes sizes between shots.
In this episode, Shawn is kidnapped by three of his jilted ex-girlfriends Jennifer, Dana, and Libby. Shawn dated Jennifer Basset in "An Affair to Forget" (Season 4, Episode 11). Shawn dated Dana Pruitt in "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" (Season 3, Episode 15) and in "Stormy Weather" (Season 3, Episode 16). Shawn dated Libby Harper in "The Last Temptation of Cory" (Season 3, Episode 9).
Cory makes a reference to the episode, Raging Cory, when he tells Lauren about when he went skydiving.
Also, in this episode, Cory refers to Topanga as "daughter of Miriam." In the episode "Boy Meets Girl," Topanga says that her parents' names are Jedediah and Chloe. Also, in other episodes they are called Jedediah and Rhiannon.
Explanation: He is speaking in biblical terms. When Cory says that he would be a "father smiter" the Biblical meaning of smite is to "strike with passion or emotion" from c.1300. He then says "Topanga, daughter of Miriam". Miriam was the older sister of Moses.
In This Little Piggy, Little Cory was a small pink pig. In this episode, Little Cory is a large, black, pot-bellied pig.
Goof: When Mr. Feeny finishes reading A Christmas Carol, the book is open near the beginning.
In this episode, they say they've always had their aluminum tree, but in previous episodes, they have a regular green Christmas tree.
Eric says that Mr. Feeny ate all the white meat, during the prior Thanksgiving. The previous Thanksgiving, however, the Matthews family spent Thanksgiving with the Hunters.
Topanga asks why janitor Bud knows when their anniversary is, but Janitor Bud should have been long retired by now as established in an earlier episode.
Cory says he first kissed Topanga when they were 5. It was previously established that Cory's first kiss was in sixth grade, in the episode Cory's Alternative Friends.
When Debbie arrives for her blind date with Shawn, he is playing the piece of classical music he found in the purse. He tells her to close her eyes "you can actually see spring, animals awakening from their winter rest, flowers blossoming into full bloom." The reason for that description is the classical piece being played is the "Spring" concerto from The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi(1723).
Remember The Beard?
Cory: There is no Debbie!
Shawn: Somewhere there's a Debbie.
At the beginning of the episode Mr. Feeny tells the class that the United States entered World War 2 on December 7th, 1941 as FDR said, "A day that will live in infamy." This is a misquote as FDR actually said, "A date which will live in infamy."
When Mr. Feeny announces that the United States is at war, he and the students are at school, which implies it was a weekday. December 7, 1941, the day of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, and the day the USA joined the war, was a Sunday.
