- "Prepare to get twisted, sister." –Stephanie Tanner
- When Stephanie challenges D.J. to a rematch of the game 'Twister,' she confidently remarks, "prepare to get twisted, sister." This is a reference to the 1980s heavy metal 'hair band' Twisted Sister.
- On their way out the door for their retro, 1990s-themed date, Steve mentions that he has Alanis Morissette playing in the car. D.J. Responds to this by saying "Oh, you know who that song is really about?" The song she is referring to is "You Oughta Know" off Morissette's 1995 album "Jagged Little Pill." She and Dave Coulier (Joey) famously dated in the early 1990s, and although she has never officially named Coulier as the target of the song's scathing attack, urban legend holds it as an overwhelming likelihood. Coulier has mentioned in interviews that many of the lyrics from the song hit close to home and echo personal experiences the former couple shared during and following their relationship.
- When Jackson lets Max win at Jenga, Max taunts him in the style of legendary heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali - declaring himself "the greatest of all time," shadow-boxing at Jackson, as well as notably (and somewhat disturbingly) shouting "Ali boma-ye! Ali boma-ye!" at him. "Ali boma-ye" is a reference to Ali's 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" championship title defense versus George Foreman in Kinshasa, Zaire. Ali was heavily favored by the local crowd, who famously chanted "Ali boma-ye! Ali boma-ye!" which, in their native tongue, means "Ali kill him! Ali kill him!"
