  • 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 lifeguard at Henry Hackenbush Recreation Center can also be seen in Bob's ice cream fantasy earlier in the episode.
  • The Burger of the Day, "One Yam Band Burger" is included in The Bob's Burgers Burger Book, albeit renamed the "One Man Yam Burger."
  • 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.[1]
  • The brand of cat food Andy and Ollie bring to school is Pussy Fish.
  • A total of 3.97 million households watched this episode.
  • The episode received positive reviews from critics.


  • At the beginning of this episode, a window appears and disappears from behind Linda when she is doing the kids' homework. This window is never seen again in the series.
  • An additional member of Linda's synchronized swimming class appears in her Tom Selleck fantasy and during the graded performance.
  • When Bob attempts to teach the kids how to work the ice cream machine, the previous day's "Burger of the Day appears on the board in the first two shots featuring the board, the "Ice cream a la mode burger", then it changes to "Shake your Honeymaker Burger".
  • When Linda denies that she's doing the kids homework, Tina's dream journal appears on the table where "Buddy's Rainbow" was. Later after Tina picks the journal up, "Buddy's Rainbow" is back in its right place.
  • Gene is seen holding a pencil with his left hand in this episode. He is shown to be right-handed in other episodes.
  • The Burger of the Day, "Do Brussel Burger" is meant to be the "Do the Brussel Burger" in reference to the Van McCoy song, "The Hustle". The correct title is included in The Bob's Burgers Burger Book.
