*** In Literature/GravityFallsJournal3 Ford actually explains this. [[spoiler:Basically during his journey through dimensions he was suddenly sucked out of one and woke up next to an oracle who said she could help him by protecting his mind by installing a metal plate through a "difficult surgery"]]. Still terrifying and even ''Ford'' doesn't know why he agreed so quickly to it.

** He also knows the Zodiac Ten. If even one of them is gone, it won't work. So perhaps there ''was'' an underlying reason...

* In Mable and Dipper's Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun, Bill calls Nostradamus a hack. Seems random, but unimportant...[[spoiler:...until you read the Curse of the Time Pirate's Treasure, and discover that in one of the endings, Dipper [=becomes=] Nostradamus, using his historical knowledge to make predictions!]]

* Stan's BaitAndSwitch remarks about Dipper in this episode are inexplicably oddly-phrased and misleading, to the point where it seems like a rather contrived way to give Dipper the wrong idea about Stan's feelings towards him. But think about it, who else have we seen using that kind of odd, misleading phrasing? ''The Author'', as evidenced by the journal in ''Boss Mabel'' ('who writes sentences like that?!') [[spoiler: It seems this is one thing the two brothers have in common.]]

* Stan's line 'you had me at 'shut up, old man' ' makes a lot more sense in light of [[spoiler: Stan's relationship with his own father. Considering Filbrick's treatment of him, it's easy to imagine Stan would have very much liked to say this to his dad.]]

* Check the scene where Stan's father makes him take boxing. Although his face is obscured by the book he's reading, the kid in the top right corner looks identical to Stan. In order to be Dipper and Mabel's grand ''uncle'' and still have the last name as them, he ''has'' to have a brother [[spoiler:or two]]. [[spoiler: And this is confirmed in the middle of S2.]]

** Also: they're encountered malicious shapeshifters before, and have been tricked into helping them. Mayebe they were worried that it only ''seemed'' like a normal person, and didn't want to let them out just in case.

* The {{Defictionalized}} Journal #3 makes reference to the author having encountered the crone who stole Stan's hands in his story from this episode. While this may seem at first to suggest that his stories aren't fictional, it's more likely that Stan drew inspiration from what he'd read in Journal #3 which he had recently photocopied in full.

* "Boyz Crazy" is perhaps the greatest example of BitingTheHandHumor we will ever see. Why? Think about it. The episode centers around a boy band of "[[JonasBrothers Brothers]]", Gravity Falls airs on Creator/DisneyChannel, and, as Wendy states, "They're just a manufactured product of the bloated corporate music industry."

* Why does Bill look like a cute yellow floating triangle with a top hat? [[spoiler: His form was ''designed'' to lure his victims. He could look like the form he assumed in the finale, but instead he chooses to look like something which could be a cereal mascot. His entire success relies on making a deal with an unassuming, naive fellow, and, say it for yourself: you'd rather trust an innocent looking creature than an EldritchAbomination without disguise, wouldn't you]]? Fanartists are acclaimed for drawing his 'human' form rather beautiful - [[spoiler: this is not a new thing. The devil is said to appear as an angel of light]].

** Regarding the potion's effects, Journal 3 reveals that it thankfully is temporary, and only works long term if the love is real and the affected individuals are compatible. Though as for anybody else who would attempt so with actual drugs, yeah... lets just hope nobody in Gravity Falls ever attempted such a thing.
