Minor Characters[]



  • This episode is rated TV-14 LV.
  • The credits theme, composed by Swedish heavy metal band Amaranthe, is reused from the ending of the "Invictus" special.
  • Despite airing after "Francis, Cheap & Out of Control", this episode takes after the events of "Invictus." "Francis, Cheap & Out of Control" is also placed at the end of the season despite being the first episode of the third season to premiere.
  • Aria has this line at the beginning of the episode "amplify 540 heighten quantum an dilute bi-thereal russianac shyd." This line is mostly likely a reference to Liquor's line in the episode "Surgery Circus."
  • There are two small robots are shown to be blipping on and off as the laboratory is also flashing on and off.
  • Golden Jo's rapping abilities are shown for the first time as he is shown singing "beat monkey tree horse" who is "tearing up the golf course." This song is also part of the show's official soundtrack for the third season.
  • Some of Shark's monitors show Mouse's Real Home and the Live-Action Cardboard City from "Invictus."
  • It's currently unknown how Buzby got trapped back in Q109, while the remains of Shark and the Rectangular Businessman are seen in beakers.
  • Peanut Cop's star is shown to have an eyeball on it while decoying.
  • This is the only appearance of the Producer Man in the third season, excluding the credits. He appears as a hologram from a mushroom in the World of Muck.
  • In this episode, it's revealed that a construction vehicle bulldozed Mouse's current house in the real world, and more than a year ago a black car pulls up with two voices whispering. These voices mention that "he" used to live there, presumably referring to Fitz or another person. As the car picks up, the Man-Woman takes a picture of the license plate of the car which reads "MSTRP222."
  • One of Shark's lines about the Rectangular Businessman from the pilot episode of the series is mentioned in this episode. Shark is also shown speaking monitor in his office using his redesign.
    • While Ned Hastings replaces the original voice actor for Shark in his later appearances of the season, Adam Reed's voice is still heard. This marks the only time in the third season where Shark has his original voice actor although this line is technically reused from "Hired."
  • A radio host named Muff, voiced by George Lowe, claims to have experienced a wild dream featuring a Shark, and details the events of this "dream." The following is Muff's retelling of the occurrence:

"It's 7 AM on the Coast! I'm your host with the most - Muff here from Q109. It's time to get your productive ass out of bed, and earn some taxes. Hey, I gotta tell you about this bizarre dream I had last night. I'm in bed and all of a sudden, this shark bursts through my door. And I'm like 'Hey, man! What's a shark doing bursting through my door? I'm Muff, I'm trying to sleep. I don't need a shark in my bedroom doing it!' Haha..."
