    • The Professor was previously shown to have already invented a mind-switching device in Bender's Game. However, it's possible that it was merely in testing then, and was perfected in this episode.

    • Stargate SG-1
      The mind swap premise used in this episode is similar to the one used in Stargate SG-1's second season episode "Holiday". They encounter a dying inventor named Ma'chello who swaps bodies with Daniel Jackson. Because of how the machine was designed, they could not be swapped back directly. In the end, they used a simple rotation in order to swap everybody back.
