- The events in the backstory that Edie Wilde tells are similar to the events Broadway musical and film Hairspray.
- There is major historical inaccuracy in that there are African American students (such as Trudy) attending the school in 1954. In times of racism and segragation, this would not happen.
- Kenton and Caroline change their well-known Gunther and Tinka accents to speak with a Southern American accent to match Gerald and Tilly.
- Ty and Deuce are the only characters not shown in their character. So technically Ty and Deuce never appear in the episode, but Roshon and Adam do.
- This also means that this is the second episode in a row where Deuce does not appear.
- Crusty's became the underground malt shop called Saucy's.
