  • Actor Allusion: Multiple:
    • When Kevin and Patrick are coming up with archetype ideas for their game in "Looking for Results", Patrick mocks Kevin by suggesting a "lusty lads of London" card, to which Kevin replies by pointedly suggesting "farm boy with big ideas". This is a clear allusion to Jonathan Groff, who was raised in a farm.
    • Patrick claims "bad things happen when I get behind a microphone" in The Movie, which is particularly funny considering Jonathan Groff is a Grammy-winning singer known for his work in the original casts of Broadway musicals such as Spring Awakening and Hamilton.

    • Dom tells Patrick to "come back down from the mountains and live with us happily ever after" in The Movie, which could be a reference to the fact that Jonathan Groff voices mountain man Kristoff in Frozen.
  • Actor-Shared Background:
    • Raúl Castillo and his character Richie are both of Mexican descent.
    • Frankie J. Alvarez and his character Agustín are both from Miami.
    • Russell Tovey and his character Kevin are from close-by London towns (Billericay and Romford, respectively).
  • Fake American: Murray Bartlett (Dom) is Australian and O-T Fagbenle (Frank) is English.
  • I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: Christine Estabrook, who plays the realtor who walks in on Patrick and Kevin talking dirty in "Looking for Sanctuary", played Jonathan Groff's mother in the original cast of Spring Awakening.
