  • The dolphin/human hybrid hallucination Aoshima from "The Inconveniencing" is named after John Aoshima. In the episode, Mabel yells "Onwards, Aoshima!" while under the hallucinogenic effects of the Smile Dip; that same quote is found during the end credits in the cryptogram. Storyboard artist Tyler Chen came up with the joke.
