Dan Vebber recieved an Annie Award nomination for writing this episode. 
The song that Stan does his workout to is "Lets Hear It For The Boy" by Deniece Williams.
Steve mentions, when he is breaking up with Debbie over the phone, that it is not because of Stan. Steve says the Ghostbusters box set is out and the new Doom game is coming out.
Hayley mentions that "large" women support the economy by buying Garfield books and Häagen-Dazs.
After Debbie tells Steve that he sunk her battleship, she picks it up and shows that it has three red pegs in it. However, in the game Battleship, the battleship required four pegs for it to sink. The submarine and the cruiser require only three.
