Show executive producer Michael Schur
is a fan of David Foster Wallace, American author of "Infinite Jest" (1996). This entire episode is essentially an homage to that book: The law firm representing Councilman Jamm is Gately, Wayne, Kittenplan, and Troeltsch, which are all names of students at the fictional Enfield Tennis Academy; the compatibility test Chris and Ann take is the Incandenza-Peculis Parenting Compatibility Quiz, named after two characters in the book who are friends; Ben is transferred to the CT Tavis Medical Building in the Fackleman Memorial Hospital, named after the headmaster of the Enfield Tennis Academy and the debt collector and the book.
