  • Phoebe says "What's the matter, Zankou? Chicken?". The line was written by Brad Kern. The writers then informed him about the "Zankou Chicken" restaurants.
  • At one point, Zankou (played by Oded Fehr) shows Leo a wall with pictures of ancient Egyptians and the jackal-headed Anubis. This can be seen as a reference to Oded Fehr's role in the films The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.
