|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, Lawrence, and Iowa are at Pearl Harbour, Jimmy and Lawrence look around and comment on "all the battleships." This is incorrect, since the United States Navy no longer fields battleships, rather frigates, destroyers, cruisers, and aircraft carriers. Although there is a campaign to bring the USS Missouri back to active service, this has not happened yet. While it is possible for a civilian to mistake other military boats for battleships, it seems unlikely for Lawrence, whose father is in the navy, and for Mr. Iowa, who is a tour guide.
In this episode, Captain Quidd makes a reference to "Gilligan's Island".
This may be an allusion, or just a conincidence.
The open air market Mary and Doris visit may be a reference to the International Marketplace, an open air market about a block off Wakiki Beach. At the Marketplace most vendors don't have any prices, and it is standard practice to barter there.

What, you expected me to stand all the way up?
