First appearance of Jen, the Belchers' babysitter when Tina is unavailable or not trusted enough.
Josh, the boy who Tina meets at Fresh Feed in "Lindapendent Woman" reappears in this episode. His design has been revised with thinner eyebrows and a new wardrobe including a tank top, stirrup pants, and a wristband. He does, however, wear the outfit he wore in "Lindapendent Woman" when he picks Tina up from school after Jimmy, Jr. serenades her.
The script cover shows Tina holding butts with Jimmy, Jr. and Josh.
The song Jimmy, Jr. serenades Tina with is a parody of "L-O-V-E" by Nat King Cole.
The music playing during Jimmy, Jr. and Josh's dance-off samples "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from The Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky.
The song Josh and his friends dance to while street dancing is "Fame" by Irene Cara.
Louise's use of the phrase "A nerd in the hand is worth..." is in reference to the proverb "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
Jen's knuckle-less finger changes from her right index finger as displayed when she's in the apartment to her left index finger at the dance.
When Zeke arrives at the School for the Performing Arts, before the commercial break, he isn't wearing the jacket or pants that he is seen wearing in all scenes after the commercial break. Instead of the pants, he wears shorts that are the same color as the pants.
Tina, who is usually depicted as being left-handed, writes in her diary with her right hand before Jimmy, Jr. and Gene enter in the horse costume.
