Notes

  • The title card is a pun on the traditional "fortune cookie" received from Chinese restaurants.
  • When Dexter imagines himself and Dee Dee as old people, his elderly appearance is the same as in Old Man Dexter.

Cultural References

  • Dexter getting his finger stuck with Dee Dee's finger is a reference to Angelica Pickles getting handcuffed to Chuckie from the Rugrats episode, Cuffed.
  • This episode is similar to the Looney Tunes short, "D'Fightin'Ones" where Dexter getting his finger stuck with Dee Dee's finger is a reference to Sylvester the Cat is handcuffed to the Bulldog.
