  • This episode we find out how many characters got their nicknames. Mouth always commentated on the River Court games and one day Nathan came by, punched him in the face and told him he had a big mouth, and the name stuck. Skills is "good at a lot of things." Fergie's name is Ferguson. Junk's parents own a junkyard.
  • When Alex grabs the camera and starts interviewing Julian, she says, "Come on Clarice, quid pro quo." This is a reference to the 1991 Academy Award winning film, The Silence of the Lambs, in which Dr. Hannibal Lecter would only answer questions from FBI Agent Clarice Starling if she answered questions back, i.e quid pro quo.
