Shout-Out: At one point, the mosaik sequence from The Brady Bunch is parodied.
Victory and Defeat: Inverted. Mr. Mufflin manages to teach the boys the secret phrase through Charades, but when they put it all together, they use the things Mr. Mufflin used instead (Dollarnator Doughnut Nose).
Whole Plot Reference: To Nickelodeon! Slime is a common element used for the company, and the boys even visit the studios. Fanboy also utters the company's jingle when reading its copyright mark, and the episode ends with its original theme playing.
