D'Arcy Carden plays Janet. Janet is also the name of the air service that takes people to area 51, "Just Another Non-Existent Terminal", which in essence is exactly what Janet is.

When Eleanor removes Tahani's diary, the bottom of it it reads "Foreword by Malala Yousafzai and Kylie Minogue." Yousafzai won a Nobel Peace Prize for her human rights activism; Minogue is an Australian singer and songwriter.

Although it's strongly implied that Janet instantly materializes anytime somebody calls her name, you never really see her do so. Her "materializations" are actually implemented as a cut from a shot without her to a shot from a noticeably different camera angle with Janet now in view, accompanied by a "plink" sound.

The Good Plates is a restaurant in The Good Place. At The Good Plate they only serve one thing: your favorite dish.

All of the coffee cups in The Good Place are green and say The Good Place.

When Eleanor is pushing her cart out of the grocery store right before she is killed, there is a stack of pizzas standing up in the front of her cart. When Michael erases their memory and redesigns the neighborhood, he replaces the frozen yogurt stores with pizza stores.

When Eleanor grabs the magazine in the grocery store, the magazine to the right has Tahani pictured on the front cover.

Chidi died by a falling air conditioner. Eleanor died by being run over by a truck advertising a male enhancement drug "Engouraglate". Jianyu, aka Jason, was killed when he forgot to drill holes in the safe before he tried to rob the taco place. It was revealed in the second season that Tahani was crushed by a statue of her sister.

Eleanor's favorite food is macaroni and cheese. This is what she is eating in The Good Plate with Chidi, Real Eleanor, and Trevor the Demon.

Creator, Michael Schur has admitted there are accidental similarities between the good place and another TV series - Westworld. While Westworld has robots slowly finding consciousness, The Good Place has Janet slowly finding her own consciousness. The Good Place finished shooting before Westworld was aired.
