- The episode title is probably a spoof from the show Smart Guy.
- Audrey and Walter do not appear on this episode. Drake mentioned Audrey when he says he's going to tell on Megan for her pranks. Josh mentioned Walter when Drake asks whose dirty laundry it is.
- On Drake's date with Michelle, Michelle mentioned George Doty. George Doty IV is the producer along with Dan Schneider.
- Lane Napper, the actor who plays the host, appears in Dan Schneider's other shows iCarly and Victorious.
- This episode appears as a flashback on Peruvian Puff Pepper.
- It is unknown what happened to Michelle and her relationship with Drake after this episode, but it is presumed that after Drake told her the truth that he's not smart, they're still on good terms with each other.
- Josh was seen sleeping on the couch, but in the Pilot, he said that he can't sleep on the couch because he has lumbar problems.
- However, he could have found a solution to those problems.
- When Josh pours the goo into the red balloon trying to get Megan, at first he pours goo in the balloon but when he explains to Drake about getting Megan, if you look very closely when he's holding the balloon, you can see that it's not goo at all, it's actually water that's inside the balloon or maybe Josh mixed goo and water together.
- The host would have had Drake's team disqualified for cheating since Josh was giving Drake the answers.
