Although known online by FOX's official pages for Bob's Burgers, the family's last name "Belcher" was not mentioned in the series until this episode. The first episode to have a clue to their last name was "The Belchies", although it didn't mention their name in the episode. After this episode, their last name would be mentioned more often.
This is also the first episode where Mr. Frond's first name, Phillip, is spoken. Superintendent Douglas refers to him by this twice at the graded performance.
This is the only episode in the second broadcast season to be rated TV-PG.
Bob references Caddyshack believing Louise threw a candy bar in the pool when she actually defecated in it. This episode's Pest Control Truck also references Caddyshack, being named "Ratty Shack."
When in Linda's synchronized swimming class, Andy and Ollie's costumes are colored similarly to their usual outfits. Most likely so that they could be told apart because they are wearing swim caps which cover their most defining feature, their hair.
During Bob's ice cream fantasy, Tina is seen wearing her gym kit.
The code printed on the arcade tickets read C008328, they appear to be based on arcade tickets from the Beach Arcade chain of redemption arcades in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. An example photo of a ticket also contains the same code meaning that the photo was most likely used as the inspiration.
The brand of cat food Andy and Ollie bring to school is Pussy Fish.
