Peridot mimics Garnet's thumbs up from " Log Date 7 15 2 ", something she previously despised. While Peridot asks if she is doing a good mimic of Garnet, Lapis retorts by saying that she was doing well until she made "so many questions". This is the second callback of one of Garnet's characteristics of not asking questions, the first being in the episode " Know Your Fusion ".
When Connie says that Lapis and Peridot are acting like children, Lapis remarks that they are both thousands of years old.
Lapis was indeed present during the Rebellion 5, years ago when she got trapped in a mirrorbut it is unclear if Peridot is actually that old. Peridot's insistence that they actually behave like the main Crystal Gems when trying to perform their roles seems to be an indication of just how deeply ingrained the caste system is on Gem Homeworld.
As seen in previous episodes, each caste is designed to do exactly one thing and that is their only purpose to the point that Peridot and Lapis feel that the reverse is true. Similarly, it is as if Peridot sees each member of the Crystal Gems as a caste-role unto itself, trying to exactly copy Garnet and Amethyst's mannerisms to fit their "role".
Seemingly no attempt has been made by Steven and the Crystal Gems to retrieve the Rubies stranded in Earth's orbit, despite the fact that he specifically said they would try to pick them up on their way back. When Connie is seen sleeping in Steven's bed, the picture of her from previous episodes is still there.
Connie is wearing the same outfit from " Crack the Whip ".
Errors The middle finger part of Garnet's right glove was not colored in when Connie was saying how Lion behaved himself. Connie's cellphone is still a flip-phone, even though she was shown using a smartphone previously in " Mindful Education " and later again in " Storm in the Room ". When Peridot lets Mayor Dewey's Van down, it has doors whereas it does not have them in other scenes.
