  • A few references are made to science fiction franchises in this episode:
    • Tyler and Allen wear an outfit of Darth Vader, a villain from the Star Wars franchise.
    • Mo and Allen both do an incorrect version of the Vulcan hand salute from the Star Trek franchise (the thumb is meant to be parted from the rest of the fingers).
    • Whilst wearing the Darth Vader outfit, Allen says "Exterminate", a phrase often chanted by the Daleks, robotic villains from the BBC's Doctor Who franchise.
