- The title is a reference to the 1989 film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and its succeeding franchise.
- While in prison, Big Sir tells Barry, "hope is a deadly thing" and Barry asks if he quoted it from the 1994 crime drama The Shawshank Redemption. However, the original line was "Hope is a good thing."
- The security measures that Mayor Van Buren mentions (super-speed motion detectors, sonic vibration defenses, and laser beams that don't freeze) for the new Kord Industries R&D building are a reference to the Reverse Flash who has several times broken into specifically tech companies, Pied Piper, who attacked Rathaway Industries, Black Siren who brought down several buildings in Season 2 with her sonic scream, and Captain Cold who in the second season episode "", freezes several laser beams using the Cold Gun.
- In the beginning of the episode, Cisco wears a T-shirt based on a total Lunar eclipse, which happened the day after its airdate.
- The LEGO display from "" makes its reappearance.
- When Harry says that he needs to "enbiggen" Cisco and Ralph, it's a reference to Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan), a superheroine from Marvel Comics; Kamala often says, "Enbiggen!" when using her shapeshifting powers.
- When Cecile was wondering how she acquired telepathic powers, she told Iris that she "didn't inherit a mystical totem from [her] grandmother", referencing superhero Mari McCabe, who acquired the Anansi Totem from her grandmother, Amaya Jiwe.
- The theory that those shrunk will explode after a certain time may be a reference to Ray Palmer's abilities in the comics; during a JLA storyline, Ray stated that he is the only person who can safely shrink with his abilities, as anyone else who shrinks with him will explode after a certain amount of time (initially two minutes, but later extended to an hour).
- Barry is playing cards with Big Sir, former mayor Anthony Bellows, and the mugger who tried to rob him in "" and him and Ralph in "".
- After learning the name of the meta-human they are chasing, Sylbert Rundine, Iris mentions how every villain's name sounds like it comes straight from a comic book. This is a fun nod to the show using the same villains found in various DC comics.
- In a continuity error, Barry noted his dad was falsely imprisoned for 17 years. Henry was wrongfully arrested for the murder of his wife on March 18, 2000 and exonerated sometime in late November 2015, meaning he spent 15 years and 8 months in Iron Heights.
- In a synopsis error, it is mentioned that Barry was supposed to meet Big Sir in this episode. However, he met him in the previous episode, "".
- Warden Wolfe drugs Barry to make him pass out. However, it was previously established that because of Barry's accelerated metabolism, any drug, including anesthetics, have very little effect on him and do not last long. It's unlikely that Wolfe would have accounted for Barry's metabolism when he drugged him so if the sedative had any effect at all, it most likely would have only lasted for a few seconds.
