Randy Marsh's scream of "NO!" when he sees the leaves outside the house is originally from Darth Vader at the end of the third Star Wars film and a reference to the Blu-ray enhancements to the sixth film to include the line. This is the second time Randy's voice has been dubbed for a "No!" line, the first being in "Something You Can Do with Your Finger" - on that occasion the sound was taken from Star Trek: First Contact.
The Mexican workers leaving the USA for Mexico and other parts of Latin America is a reference to the 2004 movie A Day Without A Mexican, a satirical comedy directed by Sergio Arau.

Cartman is shown to use a gun for the first time that actually works. Other times he has used guns he either lost control or the gun jammed, such as in "Wing", where he lost control of an automatic gun and "Cartoon Wars Part II", where his handgun jammed. He also has a gun in "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow", but he never fires it.
