The sash Skull Boy wears for the second half of the episode is a traditional sash worn at the Quebec winter carnival.
Misery: My cousins are coming? Ruby... you invited... my cousins? My cousins... together, as a duo? As two people joined together in sibling unity?
Ruby: Well it was gonna be a surprise, but yes! Isn't it great?
Malady: Ouch! An acorn hit me in the head. Now I'll get scurvy.
Poe: Oh, my dear, one gets scurvy due to lack of vitamin C. Perhaps your ailments are psychosomatic, that is, all in your head. (zoom out to show Malady's green face) Aah! I stand corrected.
Frank: Unbelievable! On the seventh anniversary of the day Misery was rescued from an iceflow, she's stuck - on an iceflow!
Len: I believe that is what is called "onomatopoeia"
Frank: No Len, it's not. It's "irony"
Len:: Well, that sure would be easier to spell.
Malady: So then the doctor said the corn will have to come off the foot. Can you believe that?
Scaredy: No! I cannot!
Malady: The specialist had never seen a corn that long on a toe. There was talk of amputation, but they couldn't find a saw big enough.
Scaredy: (to himself) I will never say "Hello, how are you?" again in my life!
Malady: (while Scaredy is talking) Luckily, it wasn't my foot, it was my tennis elbow. (after Scaredy finishes speaking) Strange since I don't play tennis isn't it. There was talk of amputation, but then how do you amputate an elbow?
Running Gag: Every time someone asks Malady what happened to her arm, she gives a very long and detailed explanation. But actually, it doesn't have to be about anything as specific as her arm. At the end, she does it again just because Scaredy Bat asked her how she's doing.
Malaise is narcoleptic (a person with an overwhelming excess of daytime sleepiness).
