In the beginning, Roger acts like the Crypt Keeper from the TV series Tales from the Crypt.
Reginald states that Jeff smells like "cheap weed and applesauce," paraphrasing a Brady Bunch quote from Peter Brady. Peter asked Alice, the housekeeper, what she was making for dinner and Alice said "pork chops and applesauce". Peter repeated this line in an accent that sounded like a Bogart or Cagney type manner..."pork chops and applesauce...that's swell".
After Stan reads Hayley's letter, he fantasizes flying around the planet and reversing its time like in the original Superman film.
The artist's rendering of Hayley and Jeff is that of Shaggy Rogers and Velma Dinkley from Scooby-Doo, Where are You? When Jeff sees it, he says, "Zoinks!", Shaggy's catchphrase from the show.
The professor demanding to know who solved his math problem and the janitor running away is a reference to the film Good Will Hunting.
At the end of the episode, Jeff transforms his van into the flying car Chitty Chitty Bang Bang while an instrumental version of the song of the same name from the film of the same name plays in the background.
Terry's defacing of the speed limit sign with spray paint is a reference to the films Cannonball Run and Cannonball Run II, with the original spray painting an "X" on the sign and the second adding an extra "1" to the posted limit.
