    • At some point of the episode, Riley was forced to wear an orange jumpsuit, which he later took off when he was able to escape from the closet that Huey locked him in. When Robert came back from his trip and opened the door, Huey and Riley were lying on the floor, and Riley was back in the orange jumpsuit. When they both went to hug Robert, Riley was seen back to wearing the white tank top and jeans.
    • According to the flashback with the Cristal, Jay-Z makes an appearance in this episode when Tom told him that Robert was drinking his champagne when Tom told him not to.  This story is true.  Back in 2006, the director of the company that owns Cristal was not very keen on the rap/hip-hop image tied to their product and said “…but what can we do? We can’t forbid people from buying it. I’m sure Dom Pérignon or Krug would be delighted to have their business.”  Jay-Z’s response:  “It has come to my attention that the managing director of Cristal, Frédéric Rouzaud, views the “hip-hop” culture as “unwelcome attention”’, said Jay-Z. ‘I view his comments as racist and will no longer support any of his products through any of my various brands, including the 40/40 Club, nor in my personal life.
    • When Huey forces Riley to put clothes in the hamper, the song playing is Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings”, the main theme in the 1986 Vietnam War movie Platoon.
    • When Huey and Riley are prepping BB gun ammo to shoot out Uncle Ruckus, the dining table scene where they are packing their handguns is from The Boondock Saints.
