  • Actor Allusion: Alexis Fields' character making light of the fact that she is Kim "Tootie" Fields' younger sister.
    • In one episode Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell guest star: Kenan plays a schemer who schmoozes a lot, while Kel plays his partner in crime who's an enormous ham. They're basically reprising their roles from Kenan & Kel, with the exception that their characters here are antagonists.
    • "Look, I'm sure TJ is a real...Smart Guy..."
    • Jimmy "Soupy" Campbell, played by Sherman Helmsley, makes a reference to his most famous television appearance during the credits of the Christmas episode:
    Lisa: Y'know, playing Santa Claus might be your true calling Jimmy!
    Jimmy: Yeah, maybe I'll finally get a piece of that pie!"

  • The Danza: Tia and Tamera share the same name as their characters.
  • Real-Life Relative: Well, who do you think?
    • Their brother Tahj Mowry also appeared in a handful of episodes, one of them as Tia's cousin.
  • Technology Marches On: One episode featured the twins getting excited over getting their own separate phone line for their room, as it meant they could call whoever they wanted and have their own answering machine message. Try explaining the importance of that to the generation that has cell phones. Similarly, cell phones would've made the problem in "Mo' Credit, Mo' Problems" a heck of a lot easier...and safer.
  • You Look Familiar: Tia and Tamera's real life brother appeared as three different one-episode characters.
