    • Endings:

      Frankie says in the Mac ending, that this day was for testing the stairs, but in the Bloo ending, she wants them to race to the store...literally.

      Whoever won passed out from dehydration, it cuts to the hospital, winner in the bed, loser in a wheelchair.

      Mac ending: Bloo tries to say the race never happened, and Mac was delusional from the dehydration.

      Bloo ending: Mac tries to make a technicality that since Bloo was wearing Mac's sneakers, Mac won.

      The episode ends with them racing through the hospital either way.

    • Both of them had a reason for winning:

      Mac: If Bloo won, Bloo would brag about it for the rest of his life, he'll think he's better than Mac, even to the point of saying he lived longer than Mac.

      Bloo: Mac keeps gloating about winning, Bloo wanted to win to shut him up.

    • Credits: Bloo, crawling at the outset of Act II, wrinkled.

    • The alternate ending, shown on from May 30 through June 9, shows Bloo winning the race by using Mac's sneakers that he uses after falling out of them.

    • Mac has another sugar rush in this episode by drinking a energy drink.

    • Coco, Eduardo, Madame Foster, Jackie Khones, Mr. Herriman, and Wilt all appear but don't have any dialogue.

    • Titile card SFX: Old timer with hearing impairment mispronouncing "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" as "Flotsburg's Foamy Foreign Dairy Blends."
