  • One of the stalls at the CIA fair holds the game "WMD Hunt". This is a reference to the hunt for WMDs in Iraq, a main justification for the 2003 Invasion of Iraq and the perceived unfairness of carnival games. No contestant is able to find a WMD.
  • Dick's quote "I got the stapler!" is a subtle joke: Dick is voiced by actor Stephen Root, who played Milton in the film Office Space, a character who is obsessed about his missing stapler.
  • Stan refers to Hayley as "Squeaky Fromme". This is a reference to Lynette Fromme, former member of the Charles Manson "family" who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in September 1975.
  • The scene where Stan is trying to make Jeff more assertive by telling him a banana is an apple is a reference to the Red Dwarf episode "Camille", when Lister tries to teach Kryten to lie. It is also reminiscent of the famous 2+2 = 5 torture scene in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.
  • The scene where Stan and Bullock are trying to hunt Jeff is a reference to the story The Most Dangerous Game.
  • The name and logo of the TV network where Bullock is about to announce Stan's promotion is C-Spin, a spoof off of the real network C-Span, including a portmanteau with spin.
  • When Jeff offers to perform "a blistering flute solo", this is a reference to hard rock band Jethro Tull, whose lead singer, Ian Anderson is known for playing a flute.
