Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Regional Holiday Music: During Troy and Abed's Christmas Rap, the "clock" which appears has "hour" markers with images from past episodes—with two exceptions. The 11th, highlighted circle contains an image from the act and scene currently underway, while the fifth circle contains an image of the video game avatar of Pierce's father—which would not be introduced for another ten shows, in the episode "Digital Estate Planning."
  • Origins of Vampire Mythology: Wilhelm Scream: Just before Annie grabs Britta's phone to see what Troy texted, a Wilhelm can be heard coming from the movie they are watching.
  • Remedial Chaos Theory: The label of the Serbian rum Pierce brought says "Generic Rum" in Cyrillic.
  • Foosball and Nocturnal Vigilantism: One of the Germans says to Jeff, "I wish there was a word to describe the pleasure I feel at viewing misfortune." Ironically, the word "Schadenfreude," which comes from German, means "misfortune-joy," or, "joy at seeing another's misfortune." Psychology considers Schadenfreude, like other malicious emotions, to be a normal part of the human psyche, but, of course, it can become maladaptive or pathological if a person can only derive joy in this fashion.
  • The First Chang Dynasty: J.P. Manoux, who plays the fake dean says "It's hard out there for a fake Moby." In [How I Met Your Mother]: {The Limo Manoux} plays a character that is mistaken for Moby.
  • Regional Holiday Music: The line "We'll see you all after Regionals" is sung followed by a series hiatus. On the 21st of February 2012 Dan Harmon announced the return of the series via Twitter. This coincides with the air date for episode 3.14 ({On My Way}) of [Glee], in which the characters compete at regionals.
  • Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps: Once per season, someone says the word "Beetlejuice". This episode is the third time it is said (at the Halloween party). When that happens, someone in a Beetlejuice costume walks by in the background.
  • Advanced Gay: Larry Cedar, who plays Pierce's father, Cornelius, in this episode, is actually 12 years younger than Chevy Chase ~(who plays Pierce).
  • Advanced Gay: The plot of this episode concern's Pierce's family corporation, the moist-towelette company called "Hawthorne Wipes." Chevy Chase, the actor who plays Hawthorne, in real life also has a family fortune derived from a personal sanitation product. Chase, whose real name is Cornelius Crane Chase, is the grandson of Cornelius Vanderbilt Crane, who was heir to the Crane Plumbing company, which manufactures and distributes plumbing fixtures and products (most notably, toilets for home and commercial markets) in North America. Pierce's father, who appears for the first time in this episode, is also named Cornelius.
  • Basic Lupine Urology: Michael Kenneth Williams says the pinkie swear should be upheld because "a man's got to have a code." This is something his character Omar frequently said on the HBO series [The Wire].
  • Documentary Filmmaking: Redux: In one scene, a windmill can be seen in the background. This is a reference to Terry Gilliam's unfilmed Don Quixote, a story in which the hero mistakes windmills for giants. Due to setbacks and going over budget, the movie was never filmed. The documentary Lost in La Mancha details the film's failure.
