- This episode's title spoofs the Back to the Future film.
- Tawny Zingwald's name is a play on the name of the popular 1980s actress Molly Ringwald. Dickie's name is probably inspired by the character "Duckie" in the 1986 rom-com Pretty in Pink, played by Jon Cryer opposite Molly Ringwald.
- This is the first episode where Mac Antfee, known as the Ninja of '85, is mentioned and tells Randy about Dickie's stanking.
- In addition, the song that plays in the background during the prom flashback has the same rhythm as "The Power of Love".
- In the Sorcerer's flashback, the rat is wearing a jacket and a glove similar to Michael Jackson's 80's song is Thriller.
- Dickie's transformation (at the near end of the episode) is similar to the Beast's transformation from Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
- Another Wilhelm scream can be heard by Jed Elinoff.
