- This episode somewhat continues the tradition of ending an episode with the gang standing over the community centre roof, reflecting on the episode's events and looking over Wertham. In this occurrence, the gang are standing on the roof after the conflict has been resolved, but then leave to introduce to the new probation worker.
- Rudy tells Finn not to about Greg as he'll probably die within a week. This is a reference to the four previous probation workers killed either directly or indirectly by the gang. Ironically, Greg stands out as the only probation worker of the gang that never dies.
