* AccidentalMisnaming: Elder Cunningham is simply incapable of remembering Nabulungi's name. He addresses her by a different name each time he greets her, some of which include Neutrogena (a brand of hair and skin products), Neosporin (an antibiotic cream), necrophilia, and [[Disney/TheLionKing Nala]].

Some productions ad-lib other references, such as Creator/NickiMinaj, and another using Creator/JohnTravolta's "Adele Dazeem" flub.

Played for laughs when PricePrice insists he never had any gay thoughts to turn off... which is promptly mistaken by the other Elders that the turning-off worked.

** The mechanics of how a Mormon mission operates are completely off base. Missionaries actually find out where they're going via mail long before they even arrive at the Missionary Training Center. They also don't spend their entire two years with the same companion; they're usually at least one of a hundred or so missionaries operating within a mission chapter's boundary (which, while it may vary in size, is almost ''certainly'' larger than just one village). The opportunity to be assigned to a different companion/area within the mission comes up every 6 weeks.

** During "Making Things Up Again", [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings hobbits, Mordor]], [[Franchise/StarWars Yoda, and Boba Fett]] all are referenced, and one of the ghosts/voices in Elder Cunningham's head that we see in the background during the song is [[Franchise/StarTrek Uhura]].

On occasion, Boba Fett is replaced by Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, or a mashup of all three.


Added DiffLines:

** During "Turn it Off", the Mormons clapping their hands makes the lights go off, in the same manner of the Clapper product and memetic infomercials.
** Some productions deliberately turn [=McKinley=] into a look-alike of Creator/NeilPatrickHarris.

* SkewedPriorities: Arnold's ''conscience'', amazingly enough, repeatedly shaming him for lying to the villagers during the song ''Making Things Up Again'', when he's doing it to prevent female genital mutilation and ''baby rape''.
