** Amy Poehler (then Will Arnett's wife) guest-starred as GOB's impulse-marriage wife with whom he has no chemistry or compatibility. This became a meta BrickJoke when Arnett appeared on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' as Poehler's blind date...with whom she has no compatibility.

** The Wall has been something that politicians have been talking about for years. And Trump has been Tweeting about running since 2012, so its possible that he tweeted about the wall then. Since Season 4 was released in 2013, it would have been fresh on the minds of the writers.

Added DiffLines:

** Tobias was intended to only be in the opening episode before [[PutOnABus leaving Lindsay and Maeby to pursue his acting career.]] Cross' improv skills and chemistry quickly led to him joining the cast as a major character instead.

** Young Michael and Young Gob are played by two different actors between the flashbacks with J Walter Weatherman, and in the scenes from the "Boyfights" DVDs. This is especially noticable in S03E08 "Making A Stand", which contains scenes of both. The kids in the J Walter Weatherman flashbacks appear to actually be a different race (Buster included, which makes Lindsey stand out even more as a clearly white, blonde-haired blue-eyed child among her three dark-haired dark-skinned brothers), whereas the kids in the "Boyfights" segment are more clearly Caucasian and show more clear resemblance to Will Arnett and Jason Bateman.
