Allusions[edit | edit source]

  • The title of this episode is a pun. It is a play on the phrase, "Careful what you wish for".
  • The talking Buddy doll says the line, "Hi I'm Buddy. I'm your best friend forever. Will you play with me?" This is similar to a more well known line of dialogue eschewed by the Chucky Good Guy doll from the 1988 film Child's Play. In the film, Chucky says, "Hi, I'm Chucky! Wanna play?", as well as, "I'll be your friend to the end. Hidey-hidey-ho!"
