In this episode, Token is singing "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by Lou Rawls. The singing voice of Token was not performed by Adrien Beard, but was a sped-up version of Lou Rawls' singing the song, sped up exactly the same as when the main characters' voices are sped up, as revealed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Mini Commentary from the Season 9 box set. Cartman also sang the song in "Fat Camp".
There are several references to the 1983 film Scarface in the latter stages of the episode. The entrance to the Chinese Mafia's mansion resembles the Coral Gables mansion that Tony Montana resides in. When Kenny dies, Kyle holds him and comforts him, much like Tony does to his sister after she is shot dead. Also, Cartman utters the words "You want to play rough? Okay" which, in the film, precede the infamous line "Say hello to my little friend".
Cartman twice pretends to take a phone call from two famous people to impress others and to prove his agency is legit. The first time, he pretends the phone call is from Abraham Lincoln. The second time, he pretends the call is from Colonel Sanders from KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). Cartman does not know that Abraham Lincoln and Colonel Sanders are dead, much to the disdain of Kyle. However, although Colonel Sanders is dead in real life, he appears alive in a later episode, "Medicinal Fried Chicken."
On the coffee table in the basement office there's a magazine titled "Vague", a reference to Vogue magazine.
When Sylvester Stallone asks for Wing to sing at his son's wedding, the boys rejoice and sing "Who Let the Dogs Out" by the Baha Men.
An I.T. poster spoof on E.T. can be seen in Cartman's basement.
Wing is a real singer who guest-starred as herself (though her only lines were her singing, which were taken from previous audio recordings).
Wing's only request of allowing them to use her in the show was that she had to approve her drawing (Though, as Parker and Stone have said, Asian characters in South Park are not drawn very flattering and are basically just always closing their eyes).
On this episode's commentary, Trey Parker and Matt Stone were convinced to do a show about Wing when a friend led them to her site, and then listened to her new CD of AC/DC covers. They then continued to listen to more of her music whenever they were frustrated or stuck on an idea. They also said in the commentary that the whole idea of this singer Wing (and especially her covers of AC/DC) were either a "super sweet joke" or a "super sweet not joke".
The full address to Cartman's house is revealed to be 93345 Ave. de los Mexicanos. However, in "Jakovasaurs", Jackov found a backpack which indicated that Cartman lives at 21208 E. Bonaza Circle
Kenny is shot multiple times by a mafia member just before Kyle tells him to leave. Unlike before, his death moves Kyle to tears and he also hugs the dead body. "You didn't die for nothing. We're gonna get Wing back as our client and... and make a ton of money! I swear it to you!" He goes back to Stan and Cartman shooting at the Tongs and says, "They killed Kenny." And Stan says, "You bastards."
