The title "A Fox, a Rabbit, and a Cabbage" is an old riddle which FBI Agent Pepper (Keegan-Michael Key) asks FBI Agent Budge (Jordan Peele) in the FBI file room. The answer to the puzzle is that, the man first takes the rabbit with him as fox won't eat the cabbage, then come back and take cabbage with him and bring back rabbit from other end and keep the rabbit and take fox to the other end, hence fox and cabbage are safely on other end and finally later come back and take rabbit with him, hence safely taking all three to the other end.

When Lester and Malvo are in the elevator, supposedly in Las Vegas, the name of the hotel is visible in the elevator and it is Hotel Arts, which is in Calgary, where the series was filmed. While this could be explained as a fictional Las Vegas hotel of the same name, a sign states the elevator's weight capacity in kilograms instead of pounds. See more »
