  • This comic and "Satellite Screw-Up" are the only comics to not have Hector or Aiden appear since their respective debuts.
  • Second comic to take place entirely at Wisconsin Elementary School. ("Locker 239")
    • This is also the second comic to have "Lock" in the comic title, after the aforementioned comic.
  • Second time Packie becomes lost. ("Field Trip Gone Wrong!")
  • The original title of this comic was "Lockdown!". If this title was kept, this would have been the second comic to only have a one-word title ("Roommates"), and the first comic to have an exclamation point since "Field Trip Gone Wrong!".
  • Second comic where the boys' restroom at Wisconsin Elementary School is seen. ("The Amnesia Act of 2015")
  • This is the first time Mikayla Saldivar speaks since the Season 2 comic "Do You Get The Message?", which was released in 2014.
  • This is the first comic in the series to show a weapon. The weapon did go off, but it did not kill anybody; instead the bullet hit the ceiling light when the criminal slipped on the wet floor.
    • Packie almost got killed by the bullet when the gun went off, although he dodged and the bullet went right over his head.
      • In real life, Packie would not have been able to do this, and would have certainly be killed due to the high speed that bullets travel at.
  • Packie remembers the events of "The Amnesia Act of 2015" and decides to catch the criminal the same way that his siblings got him (making him slip on the floor).
  • This is the first comic since "Locker 239" in Season 1 that Tony appears without Salvador Martinez.
  • Joel makes a cameo at the very end of the comic, where he is seen sitting in the detention room along with Packie and Steve.
  • The Criminal's name, Liam Allen, would not be revealed until four years later, until Season 9 comic "The Mighty J!".
