  • The episode's title is a reference to the Season Three episode "Tweek vs. Craig".
  • The Japanese text at the bottom of Wendy's presentation screen at the beginning of the episode reads boizu rabu, a wasei-eigo rendering of "Boys' Love", another term for yaoi.
  • Many of the Yaoi pictures seen in the episode were drawn and submitted by South Park fans at the request of the show's creators.[1]

References to Popular Culture

  • The episode's title is a reference to a genre of fan-art called yaoi. This involves two or more male characters ("yuri" for female characters) romantically linked in some way that would not normally occur in the author's intended version.
  • The song "The Book of Love" by Peter Gabriel plays during the montage of townspeople expressing joy at Tweek and Craig being perceived as a couple.
    • This is the second time a Peter Gabriel song has been played on the show, the first being "Shock the Monkey" in "Raisins".
  • The song "Say Something" by A Great Big World plays after Tweek and Craig's pretend breakup.
  • Towards the end of the episode, Craig plays Assassin's Creed Syndicate while Tweek watches.
  • Craig's father, Thomas, references the 2005 LGBT drama film Brokeback Mountain with the line "Why can't you quit him?"
  • Randy mentions "Maui Zaui", referencing a type of pizza with ham and pineapple toppings available at Round Table Pizza restaurants.
  • In Craig's room, a poster depicting the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek can be seen on his wall behind his bed. Additionally, he has a toy robot on his dresser that resembles the G1 incarnation of Megatron from The Transformers.
  • In Tweek's room, a poster depicting what appears to be Ant-Man can be seen on the back of his bedroom door, although Ant-Man has a light green and black color scheme as opposed to a red and grey color scheme.
  • Randy confuses Don King with the Japanese invasion of Nanjing, also known as the Nanking Massacre.
  • Behind the Japanese singer at the karaoke bar is a poster for Jantory Whiskey, a reference to the Japanese brewing company Suntory and its Hibiki whiskey brand.

  • Xi Jinping's secretary speaks to him in Korean. She should probably have been speaking Chinese, which is Xi's native language.
    • Randy refers to him as "Mr. Jinping", which is wrong due to the fact that "Jinping" is his given name; Chinese surnames are always mentioned first. The correct form of address would be "Mr. Xi".
  • The Chinese flag in Xi Jinping's office has its stars colored white instead of yellow. This error would appear again at his office in "Band in China".

  • When Craig visits Tweek in his room after their staged break up, the door was closed despite Mr. Tweak asking Craig to keep it open. Either Craig ignored his request or the animators forgot to animate it as open.

  • Seen when Stan is talking to Kyle about what his dad told him, he walks past them and around the corner.
