  • In a promotional image for this episode released by Fox, Tammy's hat is colored beige, it is purple in the final episode. Possibly to differentiate from Linda's sunhat as seen in a few episodes which appears to be similar in color to Tammy's.

  • Zeke expresses a desire not to have his head shaved in this episode but in "Bad Tina" he stated that he wanted to shave his head when he turned 14.
  • Gene states that he hasn't been bald since he was a baby but in a cutaway in "Beefsquatch" he is seen with a bald head during one of his "this is me, now" phases where he appears as a monk, although he could have just been wearing a bald cap.
  • Regular Sized Rudy runs out of inhalant but his condition doesn't start to deteriorate as the episode goes on as it did when he didn't use his inhaler in "Carpe Museum."
