The Japanese lanterns in Cobra Queen's lair are a reference to the episode "Sewer or Later" where Freakazoid says: "You know, you should get some Japanese lanterns to brighten up the place."
Announcer: And so, the diamond hat of the Czars was returned, while Cosgrove bid a fond farewell to the crew from "Real Life Police".
Cosgrove: (to the crew) We've been through a lot together. Now go away.
(Freakazoid telekinetically throws the villains into a dumpster)
Roddy: By the soiled trousers of Argus, the lad's done it!
Freakazoid: Will you hug me? I'm needy.
Roddy: Go to work!
Roddy: Strength and speed will only take you so far, lad.
Freakazoid: It got me a second season.
Roddy: You can't count on that! Networks are fickle! They can drop you like a man with big oak fingers!
Cave Guy: Everything ready for tomorrow?
Cobra Queen: Yesss.
Cave Guy: Oh, that's jiffy!
Cosgrove: Hey, Roddy...what do you call poo gas in Scotland?
Roddy: Crud vapors.
Cosgrove: "Crud vapors." I like that.
Freakazoid: What were the Czars thinking when they glued these diamonds to the ugliest hat in the world?
Freakazoid: Hey, I'm supposed to be in bed and drinking lots of fluids! I'm in bed, I need more fluids!
"Real Life Police" opening theme:
Nasty nasty nasty nasty men,
Real life police, we up and caught you again!
You were nabbed by us in a criminal raid;
Now go to jail and learn a really nice trade.
Nasty men, caught again, stealing hens -
This episode is similar to 'Lord Bravery's Sewer Rescue' because it focuses on how the hero wouldn't enter the sewer.
The way Freakazoid snap when he saw the doctor holding the brick and starts crying like a little sissy is a reference from the 1954 movie "THEM!" where a doctor uses the scent of formic acid on a little girl to snap her out of state and cause her to scream out "Them" and started crying.
The "Real Life Police" show is a parody of the TV series Cops.
