- This episode is the first episode to feature Crunchy, Hortence and Mr. Mumbles.
- Chris' last name is revealed to be "Pearson" on his Driver's License. The same last name as the real life Chris.
- It's revealed that people without insurance get to see an Actor rather than a real Doctor when visiting the Hospital. (Dan goes to the hospital over cat scratches, and an Actor in a Doctor's outfit asks him to take off his pants)
- Dan buys 3,700 dollars worth of dynamite plus a 30% tip for the Wolf-Man with Chris' credit card. A 30% tip on $3,700 would be $1,110. In other words, Dan spent $4,810 in this episode.
