    • The episode name is also the same name of the 1960s music group Jefferson Airplane.

    • In this episode, Louise and George talk about Rosie Greer's hobby of needlepointing. Rosie Greer was a star National Football League defensive lineman for the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams. Greer is also credited with disarming Sirhan Sirhan in the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. The fact that such a large and ferocious man would take up needlepointing was humorous to many in the United States.

    • Helen calls George "Snoopy" in this episode while he is wearing his pilot goggles and hat. It is a reference to Charles Schultz's Charlie Brown cartoon, where the dog Snoopy would sit on his doghouse in hat and goggles and pretend to be a world war I flying ace.
