The sound effect used to indicate movement of the golf carts that the Zabvronians drive around the streets of their community is the same sound effect used for the flying cars in The Jetsons television show.

Larry is considered more attractive than Jackie to other Zabvronians.

Only Zabvronian children can change their human form.

Episode Quotes
Larry: Wait a second. So you're saying that these men saying hello to my wife, that they're...
Debbie: They're flirting, Larry. They're letting her know that they find her attractive.
Jackie: I am?
Larry: She is?
Debbie: Are you kidding? Larry, your wife is a 10.
Larry: Out of how many? Because if she's a 10, I'm at least a 38.

Larry: In Zabvronian form, we measure beauty by the size and depth of a translucent green aura that radiates from our bodies. Jackie's aura was like a gray Jersey smog.
Jackie: It's true. I'm hideous.

Larry: I lost my looks! I'll never be in one of these magazines. I want to be pretty.
Max: Can't you do that weird clap-over-your-head thing and turn into George Clooney
or something?
Abby: (dreamily) Oh, George Clooney... Wubba-wubba.
Max: Abby, Mommy told you to stop doing that.
Larry: Yes, I'm with Mommy on this one.

Larry: Children are the only ones that can change their shape. And besides, if I were to transform myself magically into an overrated sex symbol, it wouldn't be George Clooney. It would be Christian Bale.
Abby: Christian Bale... Cut me off a slice of that.
Larry: Abby!

Larry: Amber Weaver, that sad sack of slouching grouch, can make me look like Johnny Depp?
Abby: Mr. Depp... Table for two confirmed.
Larry & Max: Abby!

Debbie: We could go out, just the two of us. Hold on. Wait. Here. Hell.
Jackie: Hell?
Debbie: We're going to Hell.
Jackie: We're going to Hell?
Debbie: We're going straight to Hell.
Jackie: Why are we going straight to Hell?
Debbie: It's a club. In the city. Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio go there.
Jackie: Gangsta.
Debbie: Yeah.

Larry: Jackie! Behold my makeover! They chemically removed the color from my hair and sprayed it on my face! I'm a 10 again!

Debbie: Are those skinny jeans?
Marty: Yeah. You should probably get used to 'em, 'cause they're not coming off for, like, a month.

Cultural References
Jackie: (to Debbie) We're ready for you to take us to one of your grocery stores so we can cross off another experience on our bucket list.

A bucket list is a cultural expression for a wish list of things to do before dying, or "kicking the bucket".

Bouncer: (to Marty & Larry) Not tonight, Starsky & Hutch.

Starsky & Hutch was a 1970s television show starring two actors playing extremely hip police detectives.
