Trivia

The tie that Troy wears the majority of the episode has Spider-Man on it. This is a reference to a grass roots campaign for Donald Glover to play Spider-Man in both the Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland reboots. See more »

Goofs

The soldiers' wear and appearance are wrong. Most obvious is Michael Ironside's beard, which is not allowed. Both soldiers are also missing combat patches and badges despite being veterans, and Ironside is wearing a cap while indoors. Ironside also identifies himself as Lieutenant Colonel, but his uniform has the rank of Captain. See more »

Abed Nadir: It's not a short straw. It's a hot potato.
Troy Barnes: Yeah, well, looks pretty cold... to me.
Abed Nadir: Cold? Or dead?
Troy Barnes: Survey says...
Abed Nadir: [Normal voice] We can't both do the zinger.
