References to Back to the Future
- Omaha's Number 1 News Team - The rioting act that breaks out in the town square is reminiscent of that in 1985A.
- The Inspiration to Draw This - The scene where the doctor got the inspiration to draw a sketch of the Flux capacitor. In this skit, Emmett Brown is hanging himself in the bathroom, when he slips and bonks his head on the sink.
- 87 MPH - A cop pulls Marty over just one mile shy of 88 - the mileage required to make the DeLorean time machine travel through time.
- Comet's Christmas Miracle - The scene where Comet says, "Legs? Where we're going, we don't need legs!" and flies toward the camera is a reminder of the ending scene from Back to the Future Part I.
- Meet the Bachelors - George McFly, Biff Tannen, and Marty are on a game show. When Lorraine says she'll become a nun, this causes Marty to disappear.
- Doc Brown's Plutonium - This skit goes back story of how Emmett obtained the Plutonium from the Libyan terrorist group.
- Calling Chuck Berry - When Marvin Berry makes the preposterous decision to call his cousin Chuck from a conveniently placed phone during a prom performance, he ends up changing history.
- Jay-Z & the Doc - Jay-Z helps Dr. Emmett Brown get back to the future by performing a rap song about it.
- A Delorian? - Marty thinks the Delorian is a bad idea for a time machine, given the checkered past of its inventor. Doc uses different unique vehicles, such as the Oscar Meyer Weiner van or an ice cream truck for designs, but Marty has something critical to say about them. Doc then makes a time machine out of the Batmobile, and is accompanied by Cleopatra and Amelia Ehrhardt as his dates. However, when Marty says the Batmobile is a great idea for a time machine, Doc leaves without him, saying that is punishment for his critical attitude of earlier designs.
