|The Barclays win a family vacation to Hawaii! Everything looks great, until they discover they'll be travelling with none other than the Rathbone clan.
When Jimmy and Lawrence are on the plane, Jimmy starts to pretend he's a 747 captain. Then Lawrence jumps in and yells "Mayday! Mayday! This is Flight 714 - we're going down!" This is directly connected to the Tintin graphic novel "Flight 714," in which Tintin, Captain Haddock, and others are in a jet (Flight 714), which is eventually forced to crashed-land on a tropical island.
Like Walker Edmiston did with Tom and Bart in Tom for Mayor, Pamela Hayden carries on a conversation with herself in this episode as both Doris Rathbone and the stewardess on the plane to Hawaii.

When Lawrence asks, "Do you think we'll see Steve McFarell here?" Donna says, "who?" and Jimmy answers, "You know, Hawaii Five Aloha?" This is a direct reference to the popular police show Hawaii Five-O
: How many years have you lived here?
: On the islands, we don't measure time in years, but in full moons.

(Doris is exiting the plane, and a stewardess approaches her)
Ma'am, I'm afraid I'm going to need the blanket and pillow now.
: Blanket and pillow?
: The ones in the bag--they're airline property.
: They're not souvenirs?
: No, and neither are the silverware, the drinking glass, the food tray, the coffee pot, the floatation device, or the bag, actually.
: The bag is airline property?
: No, the bag is my property.
