    • The episode title and a twelve year old Bobby Hill marrying may allude to a vintage musical short called "The Wedding of Jack and Jill" with Judy Garland before she took that stage name. Only still photos survive from the film but they feature a young boy looking a bit like Bobby Hill in this episode when he's trussed up in a suit for the wedding to his allegedly pregnant Luanne. One of the old (English) interpretations of the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill actually involves a pregnant woman (Jill) whose lover (Jack) dies in a fall before they can wed as a cautionary tale.
