  • The title is based on the 2010 film Inception.
  • For the first time, Randy wears his mask with it rolled up to show his mouth.
  • This is the first episode to show Randy in his pajamas.
  • The Ninja 9 symbol appears on the monsters in Randy's dream trying to take the ball.
  • The Sorcerer's key makes its first reappearance since its premiere in "Randy Cunningham and the Sorcerer's Key".
  • The colorful leaves seen blowing in the dream world are similar in appearance to those in the 1995 film Pocahontas.
  • The first dream includes the reappearance on the Norrisville Van Dam.
  • The game that Randy and Howard play makes reference to the theme song of the 1996 film Space Jam, "I Believe I Can Fly."
  • The title of the film that Randy and Howard are watching in one dream, Silt Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Silt, is based on the 2005 film Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
  • There is an inconsistency in this episode, in that apparently Randy and Howard are now capable of touching the Chaos Pearl without getting corrupted by it.
  • The plot was inspired by an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
  • Randy's robe and underwear from "Randy Cunningham's Day Off" and his cow costume from "Dawn of the Driscoll" make reappearances in Randy's closet.
  • There is a banana cart with the name "Banana Karenina" which could be a reference to the popular book "Anna Karenina".
