  • Kenny only has one line in this episode; when Cartman shows him the penis photo, he can be clearly heard saying, "That makes you totally fucking gay!"
  • Pastor Phillips, the counselor who was "cured" of his confusion, may be an allusion to Ted Haggard, who went to counseling to make him heterosexual after a man outed him.
  • Butters' blood type is revealed to be "O".

The photo in question and the only possible way of seeing it.

  • When Cartman takes a picture of himself with Butters' penis in his mouth, he gives a thumbs-up sign and smiles as he says that the picture is against the Iraq war.
