Timmy makes a reference to the internet meme "Rules of the Internet" and to the activist network Anonymous, specifically the tagline: "We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us." His profile picture also resembles the infamous Guy Fawkes mask worn by Anonymous members.
The music in the third segment resembles the Mii Channel theme.
The segment involving the Robinsons resembles the "Married Life" scene from Pixar's Up.

Bobert: If I understand you correctly, you have narrowed the definition of love down to everything and everywhere and everyone. Does not compute.
Gumball: Maybe a song would help you understand. Come on, man, count us in!
