  • Call-Back: When Eddy insults Rolf in his secret lair he says "Oh, boo-hoo. What's Wolfgang McHairyback gonna do to us, stick eels down our pants again?" This is a reference to Rolf's hairy back in "Take This Ed and Shove It" and the time Rolf put eels in his and the Eds' pants in "Dueling Eds."
  • Comically Missing the Point: Double D seems more concerned with missing class than being shipped to Norway against his will.

  • The Ghost: Gerta the Goatmilker is referred to by Double D and Rolf but is never actually seen.
  • Karma Houdini: Rolf might have been a victim of Gerta’s prank but he still gets away with beating up Ed, kidnapping him and his friends and torturing him all night.
