It's revealed that Cody has astigmatism, which will later be used again in Risk It All.
Mr. Moseby did ballet when he was a kid.
Mr. Moseby thinks that the Seventh Inning Stretch is for actual stretching.
The first time London starts snapping her headband after Maddie does it to her, her hair gets messed up. However, in the very next shot a second later (a slightly zoomed out shot) her hair is nice and neat.
When the press is interviewing Moseby and Cody tells Zack to hold his ice cream cone, there is one shot where Zack goes for a bite (close-up) and then the next shot it is zoomed out with Zack's hands on the side.
A part of this episode is in the opening credits (of Season 2) when Mr. Moseby is wearing sunglasses and a head-covering hat, when he is trying to hide from everyone.
When Zack is holding his and Cody's ice-cream, it goes from a little eaten, to a lot eaten to a little bit again.
When Maddie calls Carey, complaining about her hair, it is straight and very frizzy. Then when Carey gets there with the hair spray, Maddie's hair is crimped, and little frizzy.
At the end of the episode, Patrick says he'd like to wash the dishes with Maddie's hair and then Maddie and Gavin start laughing. Then, in the very next shot, Gavin's face is straight. It can't change that quickly.
During the first part of the game, Cody is sitting in between Zack and Mr. Moseby. However, in later scenes Mr. Moseby has moved to sitting in between the twins.
Maddie's hair becomes extremely frizzy and unruly when it's humid outside.
Mr. Moseby and the twins actually bond in this episode.
Announcer: Now it's time for the seventh inning stretch.
Mr. Moseby: (Gets up and starts stretching his leg out on a pole.)
Moseby: Should we be wearing protective head gear?
Cody: Okay, this is it the day I catch my first ball.
Zack: Or it'll bounce off your head and then when everyone rushes to stop the bleeding, I'll pick it up like last time.
(Maddie comes in with frizzy hair)
London: Aaahh! Something's eating Maddie's head!
Maddie: It's my hair. It's humid outside which tends to make it a little frizzy.
London: A little? You look like the bride of Frankenstein!
London: What am I thinking?
Maddie and Gavin: Nothing!
London: Man, you guys are good.
Patrick: Ah, Miss London. May I get you a table inside?
Gavin: Hey, I thought you said there wasn't anything available inside.
Patrick: I'm sorry, does your father own this hotel? I didn't think so.
Maddie: No, it's just it's really humid out there.
Patrick: Uh, yes. That would explain the lack of available tables in here.
Gavin: We'll wait. How soon can you seat us inside?
Cody: Poor Mr. Moseby. If I hadn't made such a big deal about never catching a ball he probably wouldn't be in this fix.
Cody: We gotta do something.
Zack: Yeah... Wanna go get some ice cream?
Carey: Oh, hi. How was the game?
Mr. Moseby: Oh, fine, if you like being pelted by peanuts!
Carey: Great. Glad you had fun!
Man: Well, Mr. Manager, I bet your momma don't love you now.
Mr. Mosbey: Well, she did leave a nasty message on my cell phone.
Maddie: (Talking on cell phone) Carey, this is a disaster!
Carey: What's the matter? Is your date a dud?
Muriel: Tell him your husband just got out of jail. Works for me every time.
Patrick: Right this way. (Leads Gavin and Maddie over to table) Balmy, isn't it? Enough small talk. Here is your table, here are your menus. Would you like some crayons?
Patrick: Ah, well, if isn't little miss "I'm sorry but this hotel doesn't stock your favorite flavor of gum."
Maddie: Patrick, no one likes coconut gum.
Patrick: I do! So apparently I'm a nobody.
Carey: I recommend the crème brûlée!
Patrick: I recommend you go away!
Mr. Moseby: Strike! You're blind!
Man: You tell him, Fancy Pants!
Carey: Now let's work some magic! (Starts combing Maddie's hair when the comb gets stuck in her hair) And for my first trick I made the comb disappear.
Muriel: When the time comes, I'm gonna grow old gracefully.
Carey: Enjoy your meal. Try the steak not the veal!
London: Ya know, for two smart people, you guys don't say very much.
Gavin: That's because we're so smart we can communicate telepathically.
London: Oh yeah! What's she saying? (To Maddie) And don't talk.
Gavin: Well Maddie just said she thinks we're going to have a great time.
Maddie: And Gavin said he wishes you'd leave.
London: Well, that's the rudest thing I've never heard!
Carey: The more you connect with them the less of your stuff they'll break.
Mr. Moseby: You really expect me to believe that?
Carey: No...Mr. Moseby, please please please please please! I never get a day to myself and the boys love you.
Mr. Moseby: They love me?
Carey: No, but they would if you took them to a baseball game.
Bystander 1: Well, I can't believe that hotel guy won't take his own kids to a baseball game.
Mr. Moseby: They're not my-
Bystander 2: That's just not right.
Mr. Moseby: But I hate baseball.
Bystander 1: Now that's just un-American.
Bystander 2: Can you believe this guy? I guess you hate apple pie too, huh fella? And puppies. And your own mama.
Mr. Moseby: Sir, I LOVE MY MAMA! (To Carey) I'd love to take the boys to the game. What time's kick-off?
Mr. Moseby: Mock me if you will, but I was the only boy amongst twenty pretty girls! Mama didn't raise no fool.
London: I don't know why some people think I'm stupid. (Flicks headband on her head) Ow. Ow. Ow.
Maddie: It's a mystery all right.
Mr. Moseby: Sir, stealing that base would be a waste of your time.
Cody: There he goes.
Umpire: You're out!
Mr. Moseby: Told you!
Cody: Wow! These seats are awsome!
Mr. Moseby: Oh! This seat is filthy!
Cody: Oh, no. She's playing the diaper card again.
Zack: You know, mom, if we knew you were always gonna pull that diaper thing, we would have just sat in it.
Cody: Speak for yourself.
Carey: Oh, come on, guys. He's really looking forward to going with you and he loves you.
Cody: He loves us?
Carey: No, but he might if he spent more time with you.
London: Oh yeah? Do you know what I'm thinking up here?
Gavin and Maddie: Nothing?
London: Wow, you guys are good!
Zack & Cody: No!
Zack: Mr. Moseby?
Cody: At a baseball game? Those two things just don't go together. It's like Zack and homework.
Zack: Or Cody on a date!
Mr. Moseby: You... Yankee... Person... Your shoelace is untied!
Maddie: Are we done making fun of my hair?
London: No. Your hair looks funny! Your hair looks funny! Okay, now I'm done.
Maddie: You know, I'm sick of cute guys. I mean, who cares about looks?
(Carey and London both raise their hands.)
(Carey, London, Maddie, and Muriel are looking at the Yankee baseball players.)
Carey: Wow! I would like to play catch with one of them.
London: They're cuter than the hockey team daddy bought me for Hanukah.
Mr. Moseby: Don't break the Yankee!
Mr. Moseby: Stay out you bloodsucking leeches!
Zack: You Yankee's stink! You're going down!
Cody: Yeah, but first, could you autograph my mitt?
Zack: And my ball?
Zack: Sorry, dude, but this hand will never touch the hand of a Red Sox rival.
Zack: I love you, you stinkin' Yankee!
The German episode title is "Staatsfeind Nummer 1", meaning "Public Enemy Number 1".
This has been the only time in the whole series Mr. Moseby has done something fun with both Zack and Cody.
Chad Broskey, who plays Gavin, would go on to play Jamie Bartlett's crush, Marco Vega, in the DCOM Read It and Weep.
This is the first appearance of Patrick.
Mr. Moseby has never been to a baseball game in the past.
The Boston Red Sox's play their home games at Fenway Park.

Guest: We're not staying at a hotel managed by Benedict Arnold!
Benedict Arnold was a famous Revolutionary war general known for betraying his country.
The part where Mr. Moseby caught the ball while it was still in play causing the Red Socks to lose is similar to the show "Grounded for Life", when Sean also caught the ball while it was still in play causing the Yankees to lose.
Mr.Moseby: "Momma didnt raise no fool".
This line is from the song by LL. Cool J, " Momma Didn't Raise No Fool".
Carey: Enjoy your meal. Try the steak not the veal!
When Carey is trying to help Maddie fix her hair without Gavin finding out, she pretends to be a singing chef - this is an allusion to a song by Desi Arnaz which can also be heard in an old movie called The Long, Long, Long Trailer.
Chicago Cubs vs. Florida Marlins
This episode's plot is based on an incident that happened in 2003 during a Chicago Cubs vs. Florida Marlins baseball game. A man named Steve Bartman interfered a ball that was still in play. If he had not caught the ball, the Cubs would have won the game and could have gone to the World Series for the first time since 1945.
