  • The episode's title copies the 1957 novel Something Fishy, which itself takes from post-1840 expressions involving "fishy" as synonymous to "questionable".
  • The whale eating Darkwing and being provoked to sneeze due to internal smoke so he'll spit him out is inspired by what happens to Monstro in the 1940 movie Pinocchio.
  • Neptunia's line of "I'm gonna flood your dirty city until it's part of my world," plays with the main lyric of "Part of Your World", a song from the 1989 movie The Little Mermaid.
