Several characters exhibit surprise that the twins could have had a sexual life while being conjoined. However Chang and Eng Bunker, conjoined twins from Siam from whom we get the term 'Siamese twins', were not only married, they had 10 and 11 children respectively. They shared one home with a bed built for 4 until their wives (who were sisters) had a falling out, after which Chang and Eng split their time between their wives' houses. See more
While spouting unrelated facts, Vincent says that the word 'Abracadabra' was first used to treat hay fever. The word is ancient and so it is unknown what it has been used for and when exactly it became popular, as no Aramaic sources survived. Vincent likely alluded to the fact that the first written account links the word to medicine (by Quintus Serenus Sammonicus), but the amulet with the word 'Abracadabra' was believed to aid in case of malaria, not hay fever.
