 Fun Facts
- For a while, a sample from Renegade Master by Fatboy Slim was played when "Characters" was rolled over. (See Secret Pages for the loop.)
- When scrolling over Store, the falling bowling ball makes no sound.
- When scrolling over Store, then Toons, the hole from the bowling ball overlaps the globe.
 Inside References
- The globe bowling ball is the same image used in Main Page 1 and is similar to the one used in the Theme Song Video.
 Real-World References
- The 4-pointed stars on the back wall are similar to the stars seen in the main bowling alley in The Big Lebowski.
 Fast Forward
- The lighting effects are nearly the same as The Cheat's light raves that he makes with his own special light switch in Strong Bad's computer room, as seen in the email techno, which also included "The System is Down".
