  • Allusions

    • The actors who play Ms. Musso's mother (Barbara Billingsley) and brother (Jerry Mathers) also starred in Leave It to Beaver. This nice, wholesome family is in stark contrast to the cold and calculating Ms. Musso.

    • Parker doubts if Jerry is up to the task of tutoring Kube, but Jerry assures him by saying, "Give Jerry a chance. This Bud's for you." This refers to the long-running slogan for Budweiser beers.
