A new opening was created for this episode, with the show now renamed to One For The Ladies. The opening includes clips from past episodes:
One of the topics of this episode, fecal microbiota transplant, is an actual procedure used in cases where antibiotics were not effective.
Sheila's infection at the beginning of the episode, as well as the infection that half of the townspeople get later, C-diff, is also a real type of bacterial infection, with fecal microbiota transplant being one form of treatment for the infection, due to having a high rate of effectiveness.
Kenny is seen without his hood when visiting Tom Brady's house and heard unmuffled. However, his face is obscured by a Patriots Cap.
Throughout the episode, there are multiple references to the 1984 film, Dune:
Spice Melange or "The Spice" is heavily referenced throughout the episode.
Tom Brady's housekeeper, Mable Gonzales, is a parody of Shadout Mapes, the housekeeper.
A Sandworm emerges from the desert before transitioning to Tom Brady's poop in the toilet.
Kyle's glowing blue eyes parody the side effect caused by taking "The Spice".
The main theme song from the film plays after Kyle opens the bookcase that reveals Tom Brady's secret vault.
The use of whispered voice overs by the characters in regards to "The Spice" is also from the film.
The line where Linda utters 'fucker, fuck her', is a reference from the 1995 film Showgirls.
The scene where the feces was erupting from the soil with a mouth covered with teeth, is a reference to the were-worm from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
One of the women calls Sheila "anal retentive"; this term derives from Freudian psychoanalysis; Freud said that if a child is too strongly chastised for toilet-training accidents, he/she may develop "anal retentive" fixations or personality traits. These traits are associated with a child's efforts at excretory control: orderliness, stubbornness, and compulsions for control. Of course, it also puns on Sheila's insistence on "retaining" the contents of her anus.
A needle disposal bin is visible in the doctor's office, and it is correctly colored red (biohazard); this could be a reference to the earlier episode "Season Finale" which incorrectly colored a needle disposal bin white.
