  • The title of the episode, "Birdman of Boston," is an allusion to the title of the 1962 film, Birdman of Alcatraz.
  • In this episode, the hawk's name is "Bubba", the name of Dylan and Cole Sprouse's real-life dog.
  • Carey has blonde hair in this episode because it was produced before "Volley Dad".
  • This is one of only two episodes in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody where London is absent, the other being "Have a Nice Trip".
  • Mr. Moseby says to Zack and Cody “I will get both of you and your little hawk to.” It’s a reference from The Wizard of Oz when The Wicked Witch of the West said it to Dorothy Gale when she was gonna get her and her dog, Toto.


Cody: It moved! The chick moved inside the egg! There's life in me!
Maddie: (while protesting outside) The Tipton hates hawks! The Tipton hates hawks! The Tipton...
Mr. Moseby: Madeline, please! Look, a zoo isn't so bad.
Maddie: Then why aren't you living in one?
Mr. Moseby: I am.
Mr. Moseby: Maddie, you cannot parade around here with that sign!
Maddie: As a citizen of these United States of America whose proud symbol is the bald eagle, best friend to the hawk, I have a right to express myself freely.
Patrick: As do I. As maitre'd, I demand the immediate removal of that baby hawk before it presents a real danger to life, liberty and my daily special.
Maddie: Bird hater!
Patrick: Bird huger!
Zack: Maddie, what do you got that's full of fat, sugared-chocolate and peanuts?
Maddie: My Aunt Bessy?
Cody: If you do anything to frighten or harm that bird, we'll...
Mr. Moseby: You'll what?
Cody: We'll report you to the TGATPPWSHA.
Mr. Moseby & Zack: The what?
Cody: The Government Agency That Punishes People Who Scare Hawks Away!
Zack: Oh, yeah. They play rough.
Zack: You know, this "watering plants for people who are on vacation" thing is easy.
Cody: Easy for you. You're planted on the couch.
Arwin: You know, in high school, my nickname was "The Hawk".
Mr. Moseby: Really?
Arwin: No. I did try to get that going though. Actually, they...they called me...uh..."Nose-picker".
Mr. Moseby: Arwin...
Arwin: You pick one nostril in second grade and they label you for life.
Mr. Moseby: Okay, Arwin...
Arwin: You know, in retrospect, maybe the problem was, it wasn't my nose.
Mr. Moseby: Oh...
Arwin: I just felt so bad for her, you know? You know, you can pick your nose, you can pick your friends, but you cannot pick your friend's nose.
Mr. Moseby: {Mr. Tripton} loved my idea of humanely capturing the hawk and releasing her into the wild, so she can poop with wild abandon on all those tree-hugging nature-lovers.
