Holt's recounting of his adventures at his old school are that of the film Ferris Beuller's Day Off.
While Tim and Holt fight, Holt says he's fallen and he can't get up, from a series of commercials by LifeAlert.
Holt also exclaims "Don't tase me, bro!" during the fight, a reference to the oft-quoted line from the University of Florida Taser incident.
Holt's assumed identity, Colt Koufax, comes from Sandy Koufax, the Jewish MLB Hall of Fame pitcher.
Angus and Gordy discuss the female characters on the television show Friday Night Lights. Cleveland's line "Clear conscience, full heart, can't lose" is also a reference to the show's pep chant of "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose".
