"Ha ha, cool maracas!"
The episode makes a couple of references to Pocahontas

- Pepper Ann mentions to Carol (the mother of the Navajo family) that she was going for a Pocahontas type of hairstyle.
- Dave (the son of the Navajo family) calls Pepper Ann "Poca-moron-as" when she comes over to apologize.
