- The title parodies the film "Father of the Bride".
- First visual appearance of Bob's father Big Bob, he was voiced offscreen by H. Jon Benjamin in Bob Fires the Kids, but this time he is voiced by Bill Hader.
- The press release for this episode credits Carl Reiner as playing Big Bob although it had already been confirmed in interviews that Bill Hader would be playing Big Bob. Carl Reiner however voices Henry in this episode.
- The snow globe Tina finds in the basement is of the Dallas skyline. Show developer and executive producer Jim Dauterive is a native of the city.
- An improvised deleted audio clip from this episode is available on Loren Bouchard's SoundCloud account where Big Bob's drinking problem is brought up which was mentioned before in Bob Fires The Kids. However, he appears to be with a mug of beer before he starts line dancing at The Junk Yard.
- Jordan Peele's character's name is not mentioned in the episode but in the credits it is listed as Max.
- In "Bob Fires the Kids", Linda says that Big Bob's Diner has been sold, but in this episode it is still shown to be operating, likely in a different location as The Junk Yard isn't next door in the picture in the Belcher's living room or in the flashbacks in "Bob Fires the Kids."
- Big Bob's apron is untied when he runs out of the kitchen with Henry's tuna melt.
- The menu items at Big Bob's Diner have the same prices that were shown 30 and 20 years ago. In reality, they would have to have been adjusted for inflation.
- The store next door to Big Bob's Diner in the '30 years ago' flashback is 'On the Case' pillowcase outlet, in the '20 years ago' flashback it is 'Florist Gump', referring to the movie 'Forrest Gump' which was released in 1994, the year in which the flashback is set. In shots of the present day restaurant, both stores are seen next to it in various establishing shots.
- In the flashback to 30 years ago, one of the burger ideas Bob mentions is the "Greed is Gouda Burger", referring to the oft-misquoted line, "Greed is Good" from Wall Street. This episode originally aired in 2014, meaning the flashback was set in 1984, Wall Street was released in 1987, three years after. The joke would have worked had the episode first aired in 2017 or later because of the show operating on a floating timeline where the characters don't age.
- When Pete reveals his real beard to the Belchers, his earring is flesh-colored.
