  • Seto Kaiba calls the Winged Dragon of Ra by its original name instead of "Mega Ultra Chicken".
  • When Joey rises after being hit by the Winged Dragon of Ra's attack, Melvin exclaims "nanda", or "何だ", which can be loosely translated to "What the?" in Japanese.
  • LittleKuriboh shows great talent in how he voices Yami mocking Tea, even making the "impersonation" sound like it a mocking imitation.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • The episode title refers to the popular comedy film Desperately Seeking Susan.
  • The flying cards in the beginning feature:
  • When Joey accuses Melvin of hacks, he makes a reference to Pokémon with the fact that Moltres can't be obtained outside the Kanto region.
  • The "Egyptian" text that Melvin is reciting is actually Green Eggs and Ham backwards.
  • When Joey is hit by The Winged Dragon of Ra's attack, Melvin exclaims "We don't need no water, let the motherf***er burn!", which is one of Monkey D. Luffy's lines from PurpleEyesWTF's "None Piece:Episode 2".
