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.
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).
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.
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.
The egg that Ms. Garrison hands over to Token is ironically darker colored than the rest.

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.
