    • Josh is still a red vest and Helen is still working at The Premiere, but at the end of Really Big Shrimp, Josh became assisstant because Helen had to hold off at her job, so this episode might have taken place before Really Big Shrimp and it should have aired before Really Big Shrimp.

    • This is Josh's 3rd time on TV and Drake's 2nd.
      The times/episodes they've been on TV is as follows - For Josh:
      - Blues Brothers
      - Theater Thug
      And For Drake:
      - Theater Thug

    • Josh calls Mindy his "Ex-Girlfriend", but in Really Big Shrimp they got back together.

    • Eric goes away to sing in Puerto Rico in this episode. However, he appears in the chronologcially last episode, "Really Big Shrimp."

    • Although the moves were complex, it only took Drake and Josh three days to master the dances.

    • This episode aired during TEENick's Back To School Bash.

  • Allusions

    • Drake has had only one friend to appear on this show. It was from the first season, and his name was Trevor.

    • The ending to this episode is a copy off of Blades Of Glory, in which the main characters (Jimmy Makaroy and Chazz Michael Michaels) have to skate as the first man-man team in history.

    • At the end of the episode, when Drake and Josh win, an intense fangirl of Drake comes out on the stage in this episode to kiss Drake and Josh. And, just like in the episode, "Blues Brothers", both boys say "Who is she?"
