Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • To Serve Man (1962): When Price gives her farewell speech, she says it was "my privilege to serve my fellow man". This is in reference to this Twilight Zone episode.

Running Gags / CallbacksEdit

  • Cheryl/Carol: While on a rant to herself, Cheryl alternates between calling herself Cheryl and Carol.
  • Earballs: While shooting her fighters weapons, she yells 'my earballs'.
  • Not My Supervisor!: Cheryl, while trapped outside the Zarglorp, yells "you're not my space supervisor!" at Mallory.
  • When asked whether an asteroid storm forced them off course, Archer responds that yes, it was an asteroid storm the size of... eggs, a possible callback to the end of the earlier episode where they jettisoned a lot of eggs from their ship, a sufficient number to destroy another vessel.
  • Archer refers to making a drink out of barbercide and hairgel, possibly a callback to an episode in Season 7 where he is seen drinking what he believes in blue curacao and others believe is likely barbercide.
