- The statue of Kermit seen in the film, which in a Call-Back to The Muppet Movie, is dedicated to"The Lovers, the Dreamers, and you."
- This is a sweet shout out to Muppet fans as a whole, and to the song itself, as it was a Number One song at one point in time, sung by Kermit himself in The Muppet Movie. The song is still associated with the Muppets (and Kermit himself in particular) to this day.
- Kermit and Gonzo's duet in the alternate-reality mall. Doubles as a Tear Jerker.
- The ending is this in spades. Pepe gets the theatre designated as a historical landmark so Ms. Bitterman can't tear it down. The money Fozzie lost ended up with the Salvation Army, meaning it went to a good cause. So everybody but Bitterman wins.
