Washington reveals his middle name is "Percy."
Freddie makes a joke about "hating short people." This was a reference to then popular song "Short People," by Randy Newman. It reached #2 in the Billboard charts and was prevented from reaching #1 by the success of the soundtrack to La fièvre du samedi soir (1977), which also lead to super stardom for John Travolta who would prematurely leave the series during the fourth season.
