  • Jay brings out a pillow and details how he fucks it. It would later be revealed in "Pillow Talk" that this specific pillow is named Pam and she's a living, breathing creature.
  • Maurice makes a callback to "Am I Gay?", by saying "You're picturing it and we're talking about it.", which was a repeated phrase from said episode.
  • Maurice also tells the audience to stay tuned for the next episode and explains the episode's events.
  • Andrew squirts ointment in Kurt's face and he screams "Aaaah! It stings!" Andrew adds, "But it's worth it."
