  • The title references the reality show Say Yes to the Dress.
  • Arturo Vitali from The Suite Life On Deck was mentioned in this episode.
  • This episode aired on Karan Brar's 14th birthday (January 18, 1999).
  • Unlike other "It's a Laugh Productions" series, when the camera zooms to Chris Bosh for the first time, a cheering crowd is not heard even though he is a celebrity in real life.
  • There are multiple references made to LeBron James who at the time was a teammate of Chris Bosh.
  • Because of the Tipton Tea billboard (Tempest in a Teacup) and the mentioning of Arturo Vitali, it may have been a foreshadowing that one of the characters from The Suite Life On Deck would appear on the show.
  • Jessie says she met Chris Bosh back when she lived in Texas which in reality is actually where he was born
  • At the end of the show, Zuri wheels the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, awarded each year to the winner of the NBA Finals, in her wagon.
  • Jessie states that she drools when she is guilty.
  • Chris Bosh used to have lucky socks.


  • In the scene where Zuri is unzipping the dress, she is pulling on the back, when you can see that it is under Jessie's right arm.
  • It is unknown why Jessie couldn't have just borrowed Christina's dress because she would have approved.
  • Jessie explained to Chris that he had cheered at her high school. She then says she didn't know what rhymed with "bosh" because she was nine at the time. But a nine-year-old does not go to high school. Most likely she was in the audience and she was referring to the high school she went to years later.
