  • In this episode Velma apparently ends her grudge against Shaggy for choosing Scooby as she sympathized with Shaggy after Mai Le's betrayal. She even tells Mai Le that she doesn't deserve Shaggy for using him.

Cultural references

  • References are made to the film Gremlins, during the teaser; the pawn shop where Mai Le steals the ring, has a creature that bears a strong resemblance to the pre-mutated Mogwai, specifically Gizmo the original and only benevolent Mogwai. The pawn shop itself also bears a strong resemblance to the antique store where Gizmo was bought.
  • The wizards resemble Lo Pan from the film Big Trouble in Little China, who was also played by James Hong.
  • Fred makes a reference to Pokémon, when he throws Scooby a Scooby Snack, and yells, "Scooby Snack, go!"

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • At first it looks like Velma was not invited to the Blake's dinner party, but then she suddenly appears in the aftermath of the Red Wizard's attack. There are enough place settings for her to be there, so it could be assumed she ducked under the table at the first sign of danger. The initial seating can be reconstructed as follows:
    • Head of table - Barty Blake
    • Host's left - Nan Blake, Fred Jr., Daphne, Shaggy, Scooby, Mai Le
    • Host's right - Fred Sr., Delilah, Velma, Dawn, Dorothy, Daisy
    • Foot of table - Mr. Wang
  • Throughout the episode, Mai Le's eyebrow color changes repeatedly, including brown, blonde, and a darker brown.

Daphne: Tonight's the first time my parent's will see Fred and me as a couple. I just want everything to be perfect. I'm afraid they think Fred is a weirdo.

Velma: Shaggy, you have to stop flirting with Mai Li.
Shaggy: Like dude, I'm just being polite.
Velma: The last time you were that polite to me, I spent a month locked in my bedroom listening to "Now That's What I Call Breakup Songs 16".

Velma: You booby-trapped Daphne's House?
Fred: I booby-trapped all your houses, for protection.

Velma: (To a trapped Mai Li, about Shaggy) He's too good for you. Dog issues or no dog issues.
