    • Yukiko's cellphone photo along with Yusaku and baby Shinichi in The Wizard of the Ripples is from this short story.
    • One of the poster in the Planetarium contains the picture of nine planets. It is because the episode was filmed before the 2006 IAU reclassification of the planets, which rules out Pluto and thus there are only eight planets left.
