    • NOTES (2)

      • This episode aired (in Japan) a day before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's birthday (May 22, 1859). Doyle is the author of a great number of mystery novels, including the Sherlock Holmes detective series, which Haruhi wants there to be a case like.

      • Chronologically, this is the 10th episode of the series.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Sherlock Holmes: When Haruhi says "Elementary, my dear Watson" to Kyon at the end of the episode, it is an allusion to the stereotypical line said by Sherlock Holmes. Dr. John H. Watson was Holmes's assistant.

        In the sixty stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes never says this line, but the line did originate from two lines Holmes said: "Elementary" (from "The Crooked Man"), and "It is very superfical, my dear Watson, I assure you" (from "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box"). Actor William Gillette first put the two phrases together in his play, "Sherlock Holmes - A Drama in Four Acts", although it was the actor Basil Rathbone who made the quote as renowned as it is today.

      • Names at the bottom of the screen: Most likely a reference to the mystery anime Detective Conan. The new characters in each episode usually have their names displayed like this along with their age and occupation.

      • Haruhi and Itsuki's poses: When Haruhi is explaining the truth, both her and Itsuki's poses are direct references to the poses made by Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth from the Nintendo DS game, "Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney" ("Gyakuten Saiban" in Japan).
