- The prize for the Word Game is an entire case of hockey uniforms worn by the Quebec Nordiques, who ironically, by the time the episode originally aired, had already relocated to Denver, Colorado, to become the Colorado Avalanche.
- In the same scene, Dalton guesses the word in the Word Game when Red mentions it as the name of a song. The fact that they consider the song to be really bad stems from it becoming a target of ridicule for embodying what are perceived as the most insipid lyrical and musical qualities of 1970s soft rock music, and it appears frequently on lists of "the worst songs ever".
- The Word Game in The Church Casino also has a prize related to a National Hockey League team had also relocated from Canada to the United States by the time of it's original airing, in that case the Winnipeg Jets, who relocated to Phoenix, Arizona to become what is now the Arizona Coyotes. In that case, however, Winnipeg has since regained an NHL team, this one also known as the Jets, who relocated from Atlanta, Georgia, where they were known as the Atlanta Thrashers, in 2011.
- Both Word Game scenes also feature Dalton in some capacity, in the scene in The Church Casino he was the clue-giver to Red.
