After witnessing a murder, Bonnie is haunted by strange happenings staged to run her out of her apartment, like witnessing a gorilla murdering a neighbor lady.


  • The character of Norman Baines is a reference to Norman Bates, from Robert Bloch's 1959 novel "Psycho". The soundtrack plays on the music from Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film version. The famous house used in the film is also used in the episode.
  • During the costume party, Simon wears a mask that great resembles that of a Cylon soldier from the original "Battlestar Galactica" series. No doubt a nod to one of Glen A. Larsons previous works.
  • At one point, Michael claims "The Great Pumkpin told [him]" there was a party in 104. This refers to the "Peanuts'" 1966 animated Halloween special "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown".
