- McLeaned: Since the Church of Scientology forced Isaac Hayes to quit, Chef obviously couldn't appear anymore, and wouldn't be cast in a very flattering light...
- Real Life Writes the Plot: The episode was written after Isaac Hayes, a Scientologist, demanded release from his contract due to "Trapped in the Closet" parodying his religion. Although it's come out that the Church of Scientology quit "for" him while he was in poor health due to a stroke he suffered in January 2006. Any word from him about it after his recovery was just him blindly following the Church's script.
