    • Spiderman:

      When Ron says "With great pets, comes great responsibility", this is a play on the famous line spoken by Ben Parker in Spiderman.

    • Title: The Mentor of Our Discontent

      The episode's title is a reference to the phrase "winter of discontent," a common term historically used to describe a winter season in which tragic or controversial events take place (most commonly the British winter of 1978-79, which was riddled with trade union strikes). It is derived from the opening lines of William Shakespeare's Richard III: "Now is the Winter of our Discontent, made glorious summer by this son of York."
