CastEdit

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • Frisky Dingo (2006-07) - when Krieger confirms that Archer should have died 9 times in the past year, Archer says "boosh", a catchphrase from Adam Reed's earlier cartoon.
  • Predator (1987) - the invisible camouflage on the dinosaur is the same as the xenomorph in Predator.
    • The scene where they crash land under red lighting is also reminiscent of this movie's opening sequence.

Death Ship (The Twilight Zone) (1963)- the discovery of dead duplicate bodies of the Seamus crew may owe its inspiration to this episode. The plot was basically an earth ship landing on an alien planet and finding a crashed space ship like theirs. Inside the wreck, the crew discovered their own dead bodies. Eventually, two of the crew determine that they are in fact spirits, but their captain, through his sheer will rejects that premise, prevents them from achieving peace in the afterlife and doom the three of them to reliving the final several hours of their lives forever.

Running Gags / CallbacksEdit

  • Holy shitsnacks - becomes holy space snacks.
  • Dick nuts - Pam's preferred insult makes a return.
  • Cristal - a callback to Diversity Hire.
  • Krieger Clones - Krieger confronting a clone version of himself is a callback to Krieger's backstory as mentioned in seasons 5 and 8. 
  • Had Something For This - Krieger forgets the "good news"

ContinuityEdit


  • Dream / Reality Crossover:
    • (Dream) ...Archer says if the bald version of him was really his alter ego he would have been "something really cool, like a secret agent or a private investigator or a..." / (Reality) ... Archer is of course a secret agent, whose first alter ego in season 8 was that of a private dectective and his 2nd in season 9 being a World War II flying ace.


  • Dream (Non-Reality):
