** Strips around the time of [[http://scarygoround.com/index.php?date=20130722 this one]], logically enough, contain multiple references to ''Theatre/GlengarryGlenRoss,'' which the girls are (with [[ClusterFBomb comedic implausibility]]) performing ([[Bowdlerized heavily censored]]) as a school drama club production. Among other things, "Always Be Closing" is a line from the play, though Lottie isn't the first person to borrow it.

** Subverted in "the Case of the Unwelcome Visitor", where the happenings are put down to a creature from Polish folklore called an 'Odkurzacz'. There's no such myth; the word is Polish for "vacuum cleaner".
** Erin Winter's fearsome boss Paula Scruggs, a paragon of office management and a woman who does not take fools gladly, is Tackleford's answer to Alice from ''NewspaperComic/{{Dilbert}}''. Regard that [[http://scarygoround.com/index.php?date=20130228 unique, frizzing-out, triangular hairstyle]]. She has an equally abrupt way with people she does not like. As the office intern on the Tackleford Cormorant, Jack F also comes over as suspiciously like Asok, the conscientious Holy Innocent who needs to find out about the world of work. There's a PointyHairedBoss always looking to cut costs and corners, too. If one of the long-time staffers is a bit of a Wally, this only leaves one possible role for Erin to play...
