  • Trivia

    • Pig Boy's tracker display shows the target going into "Itchycoo Park", but from other locations on the map (Grand Central Station, Museum of Modern Art, St. Patricks Cathedral), "Itchycoo Park" is located in a non-park area in Manhattan, on the east side, bounded by Lexington Avenue, 46th Street, 1st Avenue, and 57th Street. This fictional park is southeast of the real Central Park.

    • Since Sal (presumably) fried the tracking chip in Monica, how did Elias and his team find her so quickly when they go out for a walk?

  • Quotes

    • Tucker: What the hell is that?
      Wes: The wild American Sandbag. It's indigenous to most theatrical habitats. Natural predator, too!

    • Jenny: Can't you and Mommy have sex another night? There's a boogie-man under my bed and I think it's hungry!

    • Tucker: One of these days you're not going to have a Star Wars quote.
      Wes: I find your lack of faith... disturbing.

  • Notes

    • The name of the doctor, "Harcourt Fenton", is a in-joke reference to Star Trek, and Harcourt Fenton Mudd.

  • Allusions

    • Vera: Get your filthy paws off of me, you damn dirty ape!
      Referencing the line spoken by Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes (1968). The original line, "Take your stinking paws off off me, you damn dirty ape!", is spoken by Heston's character after being recaptured and taken back to Ape City.

    • Itchycoo Park
      Pig Boy's tracker shows the Savage Simian going into a park that is the subject of a song by the same name by Small Faces, released in 1967.
