Random Trivia For This Title:

  • For a Few Paintballs More: Show creator Dan Harmon can be seen on the Greendale poster used by the group as a decoy.
  • For a Few Paintballs More: Busy Philipps and [?] Dan Byrd from the TBS show Cougar Town make a quick cameo after the paintball war is over. This cameo is in reference to Abed's love for Cougar Town and his appearance in the background of an episode of the show.
  • Anthropology 101: In addition to being a reference to The Toy, Troy's Spider-Man pajamas are also an inside joke about actor Donald Glover's 2010 online campaign to be cast as Spider-Man.
  • The Psychology of Letting Go: Throughout the entire episode, a pregnant woman can be seen behind most of the characters in the most prominent scenes. In the first scene, Abed can be seen with his hands of the swollen belly of a blonde woman, toward the end - when Shirley says "skinny bitches!", the woman can be seen going into labor behind her, and during the oil fight, when guys are throwing money, Abed is delivering the baby in the back of a van. When Shirley tells Abed she hasn't seen him all week, Abed is watching a couple behind her with their new born baby. Abed later refers to this event in the episode {Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts}
  • Cooperative Calligraphy: The reason for Troy's wide eyed response to Abed saying Shirley would have been ovulating on Halloween is that he realised, if Shirley were pregnant, the baby would more than likely be Señor Chang's, as Chang confessed to Troy that he 'did it' with Shirley in the Halloween episode.
  • Early 21st Century Romanticism: John Oliver, who plays Professer Ian Duncan, is a genuine fan of Liverpool FC.
  • Accounting for Lawyers: Guest star Rob Corddry is the fraternity brother of Joel McHale; they both are brothers of Theta Chi, although Joel was only a member for three months at University of Washington. Corddry is an alumnus of Theta Chapter at UMass.
  • Basic Rocket Science: At the end of the episode Abed's ship has 1.21 gigawatts written on the back. A reference to the DeLorean from Back to the Future.
  • A Fistful of Paintballs: Troy's costume is reminiscent of Sheriff Bart from Blazing Saddles.
  • Mixology Certification: Both Paul F. Tompkins and Alison Brie are in this episode. They later appear as husband and wife in the Netflix series [Bojack Horseman].
  • A Fistful of Paintballs: Guest-star Anthony Michael Hall played cast-member Chevy Chase's son in National Lampoon's Vacation.
  • In the opening scene of {Mixology Certification} Pierce says, "We only sang the last two words. What happened to the "happy birthday" part?". At the time this episode was made Warner/Chappell Music claimed copyright to the happy birthday song and collected royalties every time the song was used in a movie or tv show, taking in about $2,000,000. a year. Writers and directors got creative in implying "Happy Birthday To You" without actually using it. In 2016 the song was declared public domain.
  • Cooperative Calligraphy: If you look closely, you can actually see the pen as it's being stolen off the desk in the scene where the dean drops by.
  • Critical Film Studies: This is the first episode to take place entirely off campus. It's also the first episode not to feature a scene in the study room.
  • Paradigms of Human Memory: The episode parodies "clip shows" which used to appear occasionally on older shows. To save money, the episode would consist mainly of reused footage from earlier episodes amid a small amount of new footage used as a framing device. In this episode, the joke is that all of the "clips" consist of completely new scenes which were filmed especially for the episode, thus undermining the money saving purpose of a clip show.
  • Epidemiology: The cat in the dark basement is ginger; an homage to Jones the cat in Alien, a film this episode make numerous references to.
  • Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design: When the group chases Garrity through the blanket fort, they get held up by a Latvian Independence Day parade. The original air date was November 18, 2010 which actually was Latvian Independence Day.
  • Critical Film Studies: Abed, played by Danny Pudi, talks about the time he spent the day on the set of his favorite TV show, [Cougar Town], and was allowed a walk-on role. On [Cougar Town]'s episode entitled {Cougar Town: Something Good Coming: Part 1}, Danny Pudi can be seen in the background of an outdoor café scene; first sitting at a table and then hurrying off-camera.
  • Competitive Wine Tasting: The label on the bottle of wine Pierce gives Jeff says "You're even more beautiful with every bottle" in Italian.
  • Asian Population Studies: When Jeff says 'Nice sweater' to Andre he says 'My dad gave it to me'. The sweater he's wearing is in the same style of what Bill Cosby used to wear as Cliff Huxtable on [The Cosby Show]. Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who plays Andre, is best known for his role as Theo Huxtable, the son of Cliff Huxtable on that show.
