In a blooper, Craig is paired with two girls (Millie Larsen and Red) by Ms. Garrison. However, when the children actually pair up for the project, Craig goes with Red and Millie goes with Clyde.
This episode shows that Stan and Wendy still have feelings for each other despite breaking up in "Raisins".
Even though at the end when Wendy says to Stan that he made a great dad, Stan replies “Like I give a crap about what you think Wendy.” and Wendy walks away sad. Also at one part of the episode Kyle says to Stan “I thought you don’t like Wendy anymore” and Stan replies “I don’t shes totally lame”. This could mean that they still have broken up in this episode despite them being together in later episodes.
Although Bebe and Wendy are also paired as a same-sex couple for the egg project, Ms. Garrison didn't consider their results in her "scientific study" (perhaps the main reason to focus on Stan and Kyle is because Big Gay Al and Mr. Slave's marriage).
The paperwork about the egg that Stan and Kyle had to turn in read the following: Morning: Woke up at 7am. Washed egg in sink. Dried. Dusted in baby powder. Dressed egg in overalls and combed hair. EGG IS VERY HAPPY!! Afternoon: After lunch egg watched basketball game on the playground. After, took nap. Stan is a protective father. Evening: Took shower with egg. Egg went to bed at 8:40pm.
Butters Stotch does not appear in this episode, despite the plot heavily involving the class though he could have been sick, or he could've still been trapped in the basement from "Marjorine".

The scene in which Kyle reveals he had hidden the real egg and replaces the one "killed" by the assassin is a reference to Star Trek. When Kyle asks Stan if he really thinks his hat is stupid (a comment made by Stan over the phone earlier in the episode), Stan approaches Kyle and says, "As a matter of fact, I think it is the nicest hat I have ever known". Stan uses exactly the same intonation and style of Captain Picard in Star Trek: First Contact, when he apologizes to Mr. Worf after calling him a coward by saying: "In fact, I think you're the bravest man I have ever known".
When Stan is sitting at the coffee table and then at the kitchen table, Stan's arms are drawn similarly to those of Linus and Charlie Brown from Peanuts, usually as they are leaning on the brick wall. He has large forearms and his fingers (he's not wearing gloves) are displayed; at the kitchen table, one arm is resting on the table and his other hand on the side of his face, a pose often assumed by Peanuts characters.
Initially, Cartman and Heidi are paired. It is likely coincidental but they would actually develop a relationship several seasons later from "The Damned" until their climactic break-up in "Splatty Tomato".
In one scene in the class, Wendy is talking to Mrs. Garrison who is behind Stan and Kyle; however, Wendy is looking left but Stan's desk is to the right of the classroom.
When Mrs. Garrison tells Stan and Kyle that two boys can’t possibly take care of an egg, Kenny is sitting next to Bebe on the far right. When Mrs. Garrison tells the class to make fun of Stan and Kyle’s egg for having “two daddies”, Wendy is sitting next to Bebe on the far right.
When Mrs. Garrison hands Cartman his egg, Heidi is wearing gloves. In the next frame when Mrs. Garrison hands Token his egg, her gloves are gone.
Near the end of the episode, Stan and Kyle's hair are seen coming outside of their hats. Strangely, Stan's hair is brown and Kyle's hair is light brown.
