    • When Launchpad drives up to the Muddlefoot's destroyed house, Drake is in the front seat. The next scene shows Drake in his Darkwing Duck outfit.

    • Gosalyn calls Darkwing "dad" in front of the police. This happens several times in the series.

      Herb: (In the back yard) Did you hear somethin'
      (House blows up)
      Herb: (To Binkie) Did you leave tin foil in the microwave again?

    • Tuskernini: This is the perfect costume. (Walks out dressed as Launchpad) An air ace to combat an airhead.

    • Tuskernini: That's one small step for crime,one giant leap for the criminal mind.

    • Launchpad: I am the tenor that sings in the night. I am the...Uh...Uh...Road salt that rots the underside of your car.

    • Darkwing: I am the feathery phantom that haunts your nightmares.

  • Notes

    • The scene in the opening credits with Darkwing being hit on the head with a rolling pin is taken from this episode.

    • Lauchpad's address (and also Drake Mallard's) is 537 Avian Way and the Muddlefoot's address is 539 Avian Way.

    • Drake Mallard comes up with some new secret identities, including Double O Duck, which was the orginal name that Disney was going to use for the Darkwing Duck.

  • Allusions

    • A Duck by Any Other Name

      The title is a take off of a quote from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet:
      "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."

    • Steven Spielberg

      Tuskernini: I am Steven Spectacle

      Stephen Spectacle is a take off on Steven Spielberg.

    • Gilligan's Island

      Launchpad: Just in time for Pelican's Island

      This show, from the title and the look of the characters is obviously a take off of Gilligan's Island and has been mentioned in other episodes.

    • Star Wars and Star Trek

      Tuskernini: You will hand over your dilithum 4 crystals immediately.

      Tuskernini wears a costume similar to Darth Vader's from Star Wars and he also mentions dilithum crystals, an element from Star Trek.
