This episode provides examples of:

  • Hippie Parents: Willow and Coyote have become this for their son.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Discussed. Helen dotingly mentions how men get handsomer as they get older, Jake then carelessly states too bad the same isn't for women, he then backs off and leaves a worried looking Helen.
  • Insult Backfire: Quinn hits a twofer with both Ethan and Daria.
    Quinn: Ethan?[...] You never told me if you thought that I'm... ya know, cute?
    Ethan: Oh. Well, sure, you're cute.
    Quinn: Thanks.
    Ethan: Ya know, in a shallow, superficial way.
    Quinn: Thanks!
    Daria: It's very hard not to complement you, isn't it?
    Quinn: Oh Daria! You don't have to say that.
  • The Man: Jake is afraid he's become the very thing he used to fight against.
  • The '60s: Where some of the flashbacks took place.
