  • When Al starts to list off famous bald people, the men he mention are:
  • Steve and Al mention the 1980 movie The Elephant Man.
  • Al mentions to the ladies at the store that he would have on the box of Wheaties if it wasn't for his bum knee. Wheaties is a brand of breakfast cereal that typically features athletes on the front of the box.
  • Marcy tells Peggy that Steve took her to "an Elmer Fudd retrospective" for their date night, referring to the WB cartoon character. Al would later parody Fudd's mannerisms in season 5 "Wabbit Season".

  • Al and Steve are using Dr Fur for growing hair. After using it, Steve says it was recalled. Later in the show, Peg says she is going to the store to buy Dr Fur because it was the only thing that Buck would eat. If it was recalled it wouldn't be available to buy at the store anymore.
  • At the end of this episode, there is a typo in the credits: "Directed by" is written twice, as it inserted inside the yellow box that contains the director's name in addition to being in their proper place outside the box
