  • This is the first episode that aired after Chef voice actor Isaac Hayes died, who had left the show by this time (see "Trapped in the Closet"). This episode was dedicated to him.
  • This episode is named after the accents of how Chinese speak; a running gag throughout the series is that the Chinese pronounce the letter 'l' as 'r'


References to Popular Culture

All of the scenes where George and Steve are raping Indy are references to different films with a rape scene:

  • Boys Don't Cry (lines only)
  • The Accused
  • Deliverance

A Howard the Duck pinball machine is also present in the second rape scene.

The cops said that they found a dead Short-Round and Yoda, which are movie characters from movies that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg directed. Short Round is Indiana Jones' sidekick in Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, and Yoda is a Jedi Master who teaches Luke Skywalker to use The Force.
