** Strong Bad falls through the roof of the computer room again, just like in [[Recap/StrongBadEmailE108PomPom "pom pom"]]. [[LampshadeHanging He even says he should probably stop patching the hole at this rate]].



* LampshadeHanging: Strong Bad previously landed in his computer room through the ceiling in "pom pom". When he lands in the exact same way again, he mentions about just ignoring the hole.


* DelayedReaction: There's a beat right between when Strong Mad's "Mad-don Ball" hits the water and when it empties the pool of its contents.

Strong Bad's life-guarding is somewhat questionable: his idea of putting pool chemicals is using "whatever was under the sink" (which leaves Marzipan's hair green and smoldering), he orders everyone out of the pool during a lightning storm ''except'' the characters he doesn't like (Homestar, Coach Z, and the King of Town), and he makes the mistake of forgetting to keep Strong Mad off the high dive. The ensuing "Mad-don Ball" sends all the water (and all the swimmers) flying out of the pool, with Strong Bad getting knocked all the way back to the computer room.
