  • In this episode we learn that Daisy reaped one of the Andrews Sisters though she can't remember which one (it can't be Patty, she was still alive in 2004) and Rube reaped Amelia Earhart.

  • The man who dies in the end is named M. Hart. His license plate reads: HART ATTK.

  • After Roxy and Daisy sing the theme song of Mercury Messengers, Rube says "it's a little early for the Andrew Sisters." The Andrew Sisters were actually a sister trio. Even though there was a short period of time, younger sister Patty went solo, and LaVerne and Maxene continued as a Duo. During their career they sold loads of records, featured in Movies and during World War II, they entertained the Allied Forces.

  • In the beginning of the episode we see M. Hart, George' reap, stuck in traffic. Behind Hart the Vancouver SkyTrain drives by. The Vancouver SkyTrain is very unique and is something that would never be found in Seattle.

  • Along with the messenger service being called Mercury Messengers, Mason's reap was Herman (very close to Hermes). Hermes is the Greek equivalent to the Latin Mercury. This ties into the theme of the episode which is rushing and hurrying.

  • The messenger service is called "Mercury Messengers and Copy Service Ltd." Mercury is the g-d of trade and commerce, and is closely related to Hermes, a messengery.
