* RealAfterAll: At the end of the episode, a two-headed alien sneaks into Stu's barbecue grill and uses it as a spaceship.
* ShoutOut:
** When Stu and Lou push Lou's trailer, the babies believe that their rocket ship is flying into space. At one point, Chuckie tells Tommy, [[Franchise/StarTrek She can't take much more of this, Tommy! She's gonna blow!]]"
** When the babies believe they are on the moon, Chuckie says, "Must be Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon".
** When Chuckie is scared to leave the "spaceship", Tommy reassures him that it's just "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Armstrong#First_Moon_walk One small step.]]" Chuckie responds, "It looks more like a giant leap to me."
** When the babies are surrounded by aliens, Phil tells Chuckie that, "[[Film/{{Alien}} In space, no one can hear you scream]]".

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When Drew reads over the birthday card that Angelica's grandmother sent her, he tears up, thinking about how grown up Angelica's becoming. Angelica, missing the point, tells Drew that her grandmother probably just forgot to put the money in the card, and they can always call her so she can send the money.
* CreativeClosingCredits: The circus music from Chas and Howard's performance as Flubbo and Looney Boy plays during the closing credits.
* GrowingUpSucks: Angelica fears responsibilites, and attempts to revert to being a baby again. She soon finds out that being a baby isn't as fun as she thought it would be.
* LiteralMinded: The babies make a mud pie for Angelica, using actual mud.
* NoodleIncident: When the babies see Angelica decide to be a baby again, Chuckie tells Tommy, Phil, and Lil about the time Angelica made him wear frilly panties, only to regret doing so.
* NoseShove: Discussed; when the babies refuse to let Angelica knock down the pinata with her friends, Chuckie mentions that she can't have any little candies, as they're too dangerous for babies. Angelica asks him why, and Tommy tells her that they might put them in their noses.
* ShoutOut: When Drew asks Charlotte what he should do about how Angelica is acting like an infant, she says, "It's just a phase. It's her party and she can cry if she wants to", referencing the Lesley Gore song, "It's My Party".
