  • Trivia

    • When Smoke is gonna electrocute Yang, her Prison Prism is yellow like Mirrors, when her Prism is supposed to be pink instead.

    • A running gag in this episode is that Lena keeps trying to tell Yang that she likes him and likes the things he does. But Yin keeps interrupting.

    • It's learned in this episode that Carl is only bothered by Yang's insults mainly because Yin can't throw good insults at Carl.

  • Quotes

    • Yang: So, Carlina, this plan suck as much as all your other ones?
      Carl: My plan does not suck! You really think my plan sucks?
      Yang: All of your plans suck harder then four sumo wrestlers with one straw!

    • Yin: Think you can give the comedy act a rest, so we can kick some butt?
      Yang: Hey, let's play the "stop being a buzz-kill" game. You start!

    • Lena: You think Yang's okay?
      Yin: Lena, we can either sit here and scrapbook, or I can go and look for my brother. What would you prefer? (scene switches to Yin in a field) Well, that wasn't the answer I was expecting!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Smoke and Mirrors:
      This is similar to a phrase for illusion/ deceit, "Smoke and Mirrors"

    • Anime: The episode, "Smoke and Mirrors", parodies other animes.
      Mirror's hair is a parody of anime characters who have long spiky hair (Goku from Dragon Ball Z, Yugi from Yu-Gi-Yo, etc). Smoke and Mirrors fight with either a giant sword or with their own fist, this parodies fighting animes like Dragon Ball Z.
      Smoke and Mirrors talk really fast. This is a reference to anime dubs back in the 1960s and '70s like Astro Boy, Gigantor, Speed Racer, and other animes.

    • Sailor Moon: Smoke's sibling enters as he throws a rose and dose a standing pose facing his right and his head facing downwards. This is similar to Tuxedo Kamen/Mask from the anime Sailor Moon.

    • Love Connection: The short T.V. parody of Bachorlorette-Off is a parody of the popular 1980's dating game originally hosted by Chuck Woolery.

    • Pokemon: The idea of capturing creatures and using them to fight other creatures has been used in many versions of this popular Nintendo game. In addition, the Pikachu character parody is seen again in this episode. Just like the real thing, the creature can evolve and in it's unevolved form at least, it is called a Cutiechu.
