  • Peralta briefly mentions the events of all of his annual interactions with the Pontiac Bandit with the exception of the first season; The Pontiac Bandit Returns from Season 2, The Cruise from Season 3, The Fugitive Pt. 1/The Fugitive Pt. 2 from Season 4, and The Negotiation from Season 5.
  • The way Trudy Judy escapes from the cop at the end of the episode mirrors the way Doug Judy escaped from the Peralta the first time as:
    • Both acted innocent criminals who only did their crime for the better good, but were actually petty criminals who did it for their own pleasure.
    • Both had accomplices who act out as dangerous criminals, but were actually just people who were following their boss’s orders.
  • This is the first time Chelsea Peretti is not in the opening credits of an episode. She's been removed following her exit from the previous episode and replaced with Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller. She has also been edited out of the walk towards the camera at the end of the credits.
