The Bobble Head doll that was in Dallas' apartment was that of Scotty Bowman, coach of the Detroit Redwings at the time, holding the Stanley Cup. This was from his last season as their coach in 2002 when they won the NHL championship.
The name of the band in the Russian bar is the Red Elvises.
This is the third straight episode with a reference to a Steve McQueen film.

Van - VANGTO
Billie - BILLIECLUB
Dallas Roberts: Start walkin'. You'll thank me in another life.
Deaq: You got a name, slick?
Dallas Roberts: Sure do,... buuh-bye.
Van: I feel for any guy who is so committed to staying in character, he lets himself get beat down and loogied on.
Dallas Roberts: I know it's messed up, man, but I swear to God I wanna marry her.
Van: Congratulations, until you gotta bust her and everything.
Deaq: Yeah, let us know what penitentiary is going to hold the reception. We'll be there.
Deaq: There's nothing about Dallas that's funny. I mean look at us. How come we're all here at 4 AM and not out with friends we don't have or at home with family we don't see?
Dallas Roberts: Where's the money, Wiz?
Wisdom Bailey: You want money? Why don't you check up the Russian's ass or maybe his nose, but I'd check that ass first. Keep me posted.
Billie: What are we toasting or we just getting lit on the job?
Dallas Roberts: Go back in and tell him you love him in those Tim Conway golf videos.
Tim Conway did a string of comical satires on golf instructional videos called 'Dorf on Golf'. In them he played a midget who tried to improve the viewer's golf game.
(About Wisdom Bailey.)
Deaq: Six months for hanging a white rapper out a window and shooting five or six brothers that tried to leave his label.
This is a lot like the stories of Suge Knight, the CEO of Death Row records. He allegedly hung Vanilla Ice upside down out a window over money and has allegedly threatened rappers he had under contract to stay with his label. He also spent a bit of time behind bars.
Deaq: Alright, how about this one, "We deal in lead, my friend".
Dimitri Federov: Steve McQueen - The Magnificent Seven.
The Magnificent Seven was a 1960 film starring Steve McQueen about an opressed village in Mexico that puts together seven gunfighters to defend their homes and property.
