 The wash bowl trick is an extremely overused but nevertheless popular Japanese running gag, by which a large wooden or metal bowl/basin, normally used for washing hands, face, or clothes, is dropped onto someone's head for comical effects.
 The Japanese word used here, "kantoku", can mean either a movie director or a sports team coach. The ambiguity/pun here is probably intended, since this song is supposedly about a movie/play, but a baseball reference ("squeeze play") has also just appeared in the previous line.
 The "ochazuke" is a traditional Japanese snack made by pouring green tea or soup stock directly onto cooked rice. Common toppings include pickled plums, seaweed, dried and ground fish, or roe.
 "Rocinante" is a reference to the Japanese drama "Mukai Arata no Doubutsu Nikki: Aiken Roshinante no Sainan" ("Mukai Arata's Animal Diary: The Disaster of Rocinante the Dog"). In the drama, Rocinante, a Labrador retriever who has lost its master, loyally awaits the arrival of every train for the return of its dead master. Originally, "Rocinante"is the name of Don Quixote's loyal horse.
