Trivia: Actress Paget Brewster appears in this episode as an IT lady named "Debra Chambers." Brewster was eventually cast as a different character during season six named "Frankie Dart." In one season six episode, the character Dart mentions being unable to get ahold of the school's IT worker- a very subtle joke in reference to the character she played a year prior.
Trivia: The news ticket at the bottom of the screen briefly reads "Lavar Burton and non-celebrity captured by pirates in the Gulf of Mexico." This is a joke reference to the fact that in the previous episode, Troy left to go on a year-long sailing voyage alongside Lavar Burton. This is also the last hint the series gives to Troy's fate, as outside of some references, we never find out what happened to him or if he completed his voyage. (Creator Dan Harmon wanted Troy to come back in season six, but Troy's actor Donald Glover decided against it, feeling he had taken the character as far as he could).
Trivia: The character "Koogler" is portrayed by Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of another beloved cult-sitcom, "Arrested Development." A year prior, "Community" creator Dan Harmon had appeared in season four of "Arrested Development" in a cameo role, and Hurwitz returned the favor.
Trivia: Troy's reference to Zach Braff being "ungrateful" for only appearing in the first few episodes of Season 9 of "Scrubs" is actually a cheeky inside reference to the fact that Troy's actor, Donald Glover, was only in the first five episodes of Season Five. Glover left the show because he had a number of side-projects he wanted to focus on, including his musical career and eventually creating the acclaimed series "Atlanta."
Trivia: This episode features a storyline involving the "Ass Crack Bandit", a student (or teacher) who is notorious on campus for dropping coins down the pants of students and faculty members. This entire storyline is a callback to the Season 2 episode "Intro to Political Science", in which the character Annie makes a brief passing reference to the "Ass Crack Bandit" during a speech.
