- Fan Nickname:
- I Knew It!: When the synopsis was released, fans were quick to associate the "GET A JOB" meme with this episode. This turned out to be right on the mark as Fluttershy tells her brother to do just that.
- Based on the synopsis (and some self-loathing), many fans assumed Fluttershy's brother would be a Hikikomori and felt he was intended as This Loser Is You. The episode clearly shows him as more of a slacker with an overblown sense of entitlement.
- A few fans had thought from the synopsis that Fluttershy was going to have to learn how to assert herself again. Instead, she asserts herself throughout the episode.
- Meme Acknowledgment: Zephyr calls Fluttershy "Flutter Butter", referencing a meme of shooping Fluttershy's mane and tail onto a stick of butter.
- Out of Order: This is the twelfth episode in production order but is the eleventh episode in broadcast order.
- Word of God: That there was going to be an episode involving Fluttershy and her brother was news revealed by the showrunners before the start of Season 5 during the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. It just took a bit longer for that episode to actually get to air.
