- This episode shows Scootaloo in her house, jossing the homeless Scootaloo that a lot of fanon believes. Though we don't see any of her family, it's unlikely she's an orphan. (Granted, most Fanon believed she was at least adopted, which didn't necessarily entail homelessness.)
- Quite a bit of Fanon — especially Rainbow Factory and related works — has been devoted to the notion of an unpleasant fate for pegasi that aren't strong fliers, and that Rainbow Dash would consider Scootaloo a disappointment for not being able to fly. This episode shows this idea has no basis in canon.Scootaloo: What if I never fly?
Rainbow Dash: Listen, Scootaloo. Maybe you'll fly someday, or maybe you won't. You're all kinds of awesome anyway!
- Tyop on the Cover: The DISH Network Guide for this episode misspells Scootaloo's name as "Scottaloo".
