The "wet willie" scene at the end of the episode is an homage to a similar torture scene in the Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs.
First appearances of Mike the mailman, Reggie, Pepe and Charac.
The plot of this episode is similar to the plot of the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode, "Paddy's Pub: The Worst Bar in Philadelphia", which also involves a critic being taken hostage.
While the episode was in production. Michael Madsen, known for his role as Mr. Blonde in Reservoir Dogs was accidentally dropped off by the studio while on his way to work on a different project. Noticing the coincidence that the episode had a Reservoir Dogs parody, he was asked in to record a part and he agreed. He voices Kevin Costner in the scene where the family and patrons of Bob's Burgers watch "Tin Cup".
 The script cover shows Bob in an office cubical, the title of the episode is shown above.
Mr. Fischoeder describes Bob as a tumor with teeth. These are known as Teratomas. H. Jon Benjamin voiced such a tumor in an episode of Lucy, The Daughter of the Devil, a series also created by Loren Bouchard.
Although the title of the episode is spelled "Moody Foodie", when Tran holds up the news paper to Bob to show him Pepe's bad review it says "Moody Foody".
The tape tied around the Moody Foodie disappears in the first shot that "Stuck in the Middle With You" plays.
Linda's apron suddenly appears on her when Tran unboxes his noodles then disappears. It suddenly appears again during the second half of the hostage scene and is on for the rest of the scene. She wasn't wearing it when she came in. The errors in continuity with Linda's apron was very common the Season 1 and Season 2.
