      • Joe Rockhead has quite a large part in this episode, implying we'd see a lot more of him in future episodes. However, he's used very infrequently for the rest of series. He shows up in "Impractical Joker", "Fred's Birthday Party" (voiced by Howard Morris rather than John Stephenson) and, unnamed but evident in appearance and voice in one of the last episodes, "Curtain Call in Bedrock."

      • One of the other Lodge guys is Charlie.

      • Joe mentions Fred's uncle in Texas, who has not yet made an appearance.

      • Joe Rockhead is a member of the Lodge and his wife's name is Rita.
