  • When attempting to get Phillip to do the show, Cartman threatens to make Phillip eat his parents. Phillip dismisses the threat, however Stan warns him "He'll do it, dude!" This is a reference to Cartman killing his (then unknown) half-brother, Scott Tenorman's mother and their mutual father, in "Scott Tenorman Must Die".
  • This is another time where hardcore liberals have used the boys to push their agendas. This happened before in "Gnomes", and happens again in "My Future Self n' Me", "I'm a Little Bit Country", and "Butt Out".
  • Milly and a blonde Red are at Terrance and Phillip Live.
  • Stan mentions how they helped save Terrance and Phillip. This is a reference to "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut".

  • Kenny isn't actually seen dying in this episode - he is just slowly dismembered with a meat cleaver. Since he is back to normal the next episode, it's a safe assumption that he died shortly afterwards.

  • The Earth Day people chopping off Kenny's limbs might be a reference to the 1975 British satire film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, where King Arthur chops off the Black Knight's limbs during a battle.
  • Terrance and Phillip appear on the TV variety program The Ed Sullivan Show dressed as Canadian mounted police. This mirrors real life Canadian comedy duo Wayne and Shuster, who have held a record for 67 appearances.

  • When the random slut appeared in the line, she was the fourth person in line, and the third was a woman in a green shirt. When she saw Terrance she came after the first woman in the line instead of the woman in the green shirt. However, the second and third women may have departed, or the fourth woman skipped two places in line.
  • As Carl prepares to mutilate Kenny for a second time by cutting off his arm, he seems to be lacking a mouth.
  • Clyde Donovan claims his father is a geologist. However, according to "Spontaneous Combustion", "Die Hippie, Die", "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow", its stated that Randy Marsh is the only geologist (and only scientist, for that matter) in South Park.
  • In the Behind the Blow film, it is stated that as a result of Asses of Fire, 8 million people died in the American-Canadian war. However, this is not true - while 8 million people could easily have died, Kenny got Satan to reverse things to be as they were before the war, so nobody actually stayed dead. Although the characters realized that despite most people dying had just came back to life. This is known by Mr. Garrison's line "I'm alive?" and Big Gal Al's "We were all dying and now were fine. That's super." Also when Terrance stands up he asks "What the fuck's going on?" Obviously confused that he has just died and is now back alive. So the documentary could be referring to it caused 8 million people to die but just left out the act about Kenny wishing everyone back alive.
