- The Canadian Minister of Movies from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut reappears, now called the "Canadian Minister of Streaming".
- Netflix offering to green-light The Terrance and Phillip Show with an aging Terrance and Phillip is a reference to Netflix reviving and rebooting classic shows.
- A promotional image for the episode shows PC Principal looking at himself in the bathroom mirror. This is most likely a cut scene taking place right after PC Principal leaves the Teacher's Lounge stating he has to go to the bathroom.
- Oddly enough, this scene does not appear as a deleted scene on the Complete Twenty-First Season DVD & Blu-ray release.
- The HR representative, Heather Conduct or Ms. Conduct, is a pun on the word "Misconduct".
- This episode satirizes shifting attitudes about workplace dating and harassment. In the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, where prominent men such as Bill Cosby and mogul Harvey Weinstein were accused of sexual harassment, particularly intimidating employees for sex, there was public commentary against workplace relationships, especially between bosses and employees, to avoid such situations. PC Principal's status as Strong Woman's boss and co-worker would make such a relationship highly inappropriate under these guidelines.
- PC Principal's dilemma about holding the door open for Strong Woman is a reference to certain feminists who suggest that holding the door for a woman can be viewed as demeaning and sexist.
- Kyle's newfound opposition to the Terrance and Phillip Show, leading and organizing for its removal from Netflix and citing that it victimizes innocent people, is intended to satirize the shifting association between young people, political correctness and protesting to remove offensive content in media. The episode contrasts them with similar organizations lead by religious 'moral guardians' in the nineties, as then represented by Sheila Broflovski.
- In Strong Woman's office, there is a master's degree from University of Colorado behind her desk. Both Trey Parker and Matt Stone are alumni of University of Colorado at Boulder.
- The code President Garrison enters to launch the missile is 66752.
- Terrance and Phillip age abnormally, considering that when they last appeared in Season Eighteen episode "Freemium Isn't Free" (only 3 years ago), they were both still young and active. This seems even stranger due to the fact that:
- Most South Park characters do not age, save for advancing a year during Season Four when the children moved up to the fourth grade.
- Even if some characters do seem to age (Randy Marsh, or celebrities like Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton), they seem to age chronologically in line with reality, but not any faster.
- When Ms. Conduct asks if any of the school faculty have ever had feelings for a co-worker, Strong Woman is the only character to raise her hand, however such relationships appeared in multiple previous episodes:
- Richard Adler had a romantic relationship with Pearl, the home ec teacher, in "Tweek vs. Craig".
- Mr. Mackey had previously exhibited an attraction to Principal Victoria in "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub" and notably had a sexual relationship with Diane Choksondik.
- In addition, though they are not present, Jerome "Chef" McElroy had casual sex with Veronica Crabtree in "Chef Aid" and Principal Victoria in "It Hits the Fan", while Herbert Garrison suggested an attraction to the latter, Chef, Mackey, and was rehired alongside his assistant Mr. Slave, with whom he also had an obvious sexual and romantic relationship.
