* [[CerebusRetcon Cerebus Retcon]]: Remember all those times that Pierce was excluded, neglected and disdained by the group? Remember how funny they were? Yeah, turns out Pierce wasn't laughing; many of them come up again in this episode, and are decidedly ''not'' played for laughs.

* JerkassWoobie: Pierce. For all his cruel antics in this episode, he points out that he mainly does it because the group excludes him and considers him a joke.
** Jeff is also one in this episode. He is the member who probably treats Pierce the worst and is quite angry in this episode. But when the car first pulls up, you can just look at his face and see that this may be the most emotionally vulnerable he has been during the entire show. Part of him thinks that it may not be a joke, and that the driver really could be his father.



* ThrowItIn: According to the commentary, during filming, they weren't sure if they wanted to make any ''Roots'' jokes, but [=LeVar=] Burton added "More fish for Kunta!" at the end.
