  • Josie and the Pussy Cats is an American animated television series, based upon the Archie Comics comic book series of the same name created by Dan DeCarlo.
  • Janice says that Tommy Lee gave her hepatitis C, this is an allusion of Pamela Anderson's claim that Tommy Lee gave her hepatitis C.
  • Floyd's line about Zoot being picked up in Tokyo with '37 pounds of hash' is a reference to the fact that Paul McCartney was arrested in Tokyo in January 1980 for a similar offense (though McCartney only had 8 ounces of marijuana on him).

  • In the black and white picture of Janice and Tommy Lee, Tommy Lee has a tattoo "Mayhem" on his left arm.
  • Janice tells Howard she only has 5 years to live even though, overall, 50–80% of people treated for hepatitis C are cured.
