- The episode title is a pun on the film Lars and the Real Girl.
- This is the fourth consecutive episode not to contain a title sequence.
- Marcus works for Hugs Not Bugs, the pest control company first appeared as a Pest Control Truck in the opening sequence for "Topsy."
- The playground that Tina takes Jeff to is the same playground that features in "Spaghetti Western and Meatballs" where Bob, Gene, and Louise hide in the slide from Choo-Choo and his father.
- The sketch artist who draws Tina and Jeff is Charac, the same sketch artist from "Moody Foodie" who draws what people describe within earshot whether they wanted it drawn or not and charges them.
- This is the third Halloween episode - and the third time where Gene ends up with no candy. (However, he is shown eating a full bar just before they board the ferry before going back for the hell hunt victims in "Full Bars." He is also shown eating Halloween candy at the start of "Christmas in the Car").
- Gene makes reference to the show being set on the east coast of the United States saying that Kitchen Nightmares is on at 9/8 Central.
- This is so far the only holiday-themed episode of the show to air after the holiday being celebrated in the episode.
- Even though Phil and Don don't get an answer off Bob or Linda as to whether they accept credit cards as a valid method of payment. It is already known from the sign that featured in the restaurant in the first season and the first couple of episodes of Season 2 that the restaurant accepts cash only.
- The script cover shows Tina sitting on a couch with a bouquet of flowers, with Jeff on a table.
- Both Tammy and Jocelyn's haircuts are reversed when the kids are looking at the ouija board, Jocelyn's right ear is exposed rather than her left.
- Nobody ends any of the ouija board sessions with saying goodbye, doing this means that the door to the spirit world remains open.
- While Louise is in costume as Ryan Gosling "from the major motion picture trailer, Drive" her gloves keep disappearing and re-appearing in between shots.
