The swan-dress that Tinka wears in this episode is the same one that Miley wore on the Hannah Montana episode "Achy-Jakey Heart", and is likewise a reference to the dress the Björk wore to the 73'rd Academy Awards.
Another Disney show to use the dress was Kim Possible, in which Bonnie wore it in the episode "Hidden Talent".
Prior to the opening title sequence, a sleeping CeCe wakes up, thinking that she dreamed of Principal Rabinoff announcing mandatory uniforms for all students. When Rocky advises her that it was not a dream, but reality, CeCe yells "No!" which echoes as the camera pulls away from the room, from the school, all the way to a shot from space showing the earth rotating in the wrong direction!
Deuce and Ty break Flynn's video-game console, so they do chores for the neighbor to save up money to buy him a new one. However, the system they get is clearly a Nintendo 64 which was released in 1996, so it was hardly "new" in 2011 when this episode aired, nor would an N64's then-outdated graphics have prompted Flynn's praises of "amazing" at that time.
Gunther's absence in the episode as explained by Tinka is he is on medical leave because he just started shaving and had an accident with a razor which resulted in six stitches.
