The title is a play on the phrase "buried treasure".
The scene where Donna and Cleveland witness Holt supposedly murdering his mother is a reference to Rear Window. During the scene, Cleveland imitates Ricky Ricardo from I Love Lucy and the scene ends with a bumper for Hart to Hart.
Rallo saluting Holt at the end of the episode is an allusion to when John F. Kennedy Jr. saluted the casket carrying his father after he was assassinated in 1963.
Cleveland calls Tim "Boo Boo", referring to the Yogi Bear sidekick.
The end with Holt carrying Kimi is a parody of An Officer and a Gentleman, complete with "Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker.
