  • Ben Savage previously costarred with Jennifer Love Hewitt on the sitcom Boy Meets World.
  • The episode was specifically made as a commemorative episode celebrating the show's ten-year history and had been described by Erica Messer as "a love letter to fans who've been with us all [ten] years".
  • The episode is the debut of Criminal Minds star Kirsten Vangsness as a writer on the show writing staff.
  • When Garcia pulls up a photo of the Flappers' members on her screen, a caption reads the names of all of the members. One of the names is "Cooper Lupton", which was previously used for the name of an assault victim mentioned in the Season Eight episode Through the Looking Glass.
