- One of the flowers you need to get for the little girl forces you to take it from a man who spent several years of his life caring for it and making it perfect.
- Curtains Match The Windows: Knight has red hair and crimson eyes.

- Shout-Out: The two boys who are clad in overalls (one with a red shirt underneath and the other has a green one) circling a tree are called Mario and Luigi. Mario says he wants to jump really high, while Luigi wants to be a plumber.
- We Sell Everything: The "Everything But Milk" store which sells literally everything but milk. This is parodied when Knight asks one of the clerks if they sell a "evil zombie nazi" or a "giant pickle".
