  • Jenny resembles Samantha Stankey from Bart's Friend Falls in Love. Ironically, the exact reverse of the episode's events seem to be the main plot line. Like in "Bart's Friend Falls in Love" when Bart tries to ruin Milhouse's romance with Samantha Stankey and in this episode Milhouse tries to ruin Bart's relationship with Jenny.
  • When the letters from the school sign above the front door, say "Springfield Elementary School", fell down, the N's and a broken M became Z's over Willy's head.
  • When Milhouse said "Hello Bart" it sounded like something Sideshow Bob would say.
  • The Good, the Sad and the drugly is a reference to some of the characters.
  • The last time Homer felt oblivious about 'El Barto' being Bart's alter-ego despite the resemblance was in Homer's Odyssey.
  • As of this episode, every main Simpsons family member (except Maggie) has taken drugs.
