Did You Know?
's character Uncle Jack is based loosely on real-life 90-year-old fitness guru Jack LaLanne
. Speech mannerisms, style of dress, and even the dyed jet-black hair are all trademarks of LaLanne, who, unlike Short's character, remains extremely mobile and agile at the time of this episode's first airing. See more
In the "On the next Arrested Development" segment, where Tobias, at Micheal's suggestion, listens to the tape recording he took of what he says during a day, the first phrase he listens to was from an earlier episode, Queen for a Day, which occurred before he ever got the recorder. See more

Ah, don't worry. Dragon's got me.
Dragon's in the bathroom.
