- Moral: Everybody gets embarrassed sometimes.
- When Leonard tries to tell Leslie that he is nervous, she tells him she was nervous and sweaty when she is near him as well, hinting she could feel the same way.
- During the scene when Scott is trying to hypnotize Leonard into thinking dry things to prevent his hands from sweating, his beanie has inverted colors: yellow beanie with black rings instead of vice versa.
- Armin Shimerman is credited in this episode, but his character Nash Brickler has no dialogue, only appearing in Principal Strickler's imagination and the assembly. This most likely means Principal Brickler was originally intended to speak in the episode, but Shimerman's recordings were cut in the final episode for unknown reasons.
