    • "One of us! One of us"

      When the carnies have Bella they start chanting "One of us!" This is a reference to the controversial 1932 film "Freaks" in a which a group of circus freaks can be heard chanting "Gooble gobble, gooble gobble, we accept her, we accept her, one of us, one of us!"

    • Maggie: "Bella! Hey, Bella!"

      This is a take on Stanley shouting "Stella! Hey, Stella!" in "A Streetcar Named Desire."

    • After the "Favorite Hat" is accidentally destroyed by Maggie and Aldrin fighting over it, Pupert says "My Precious", which is how Gollum (from Lord Of The Rings) referred to the ring of Sauron.

    • The title could also be a reference to Chilli Con Carne.
