    • Linda: Are you sure you're okay, Duke?

    • Dodee: We're the only thing on air right, now--AM, FM, anywhere.
      Phil: Yeah, the blackout, I know.
      Dodee: No, even if that were statewide, every station our size has its own generator. So why is the whole dial still static?
      Phil: I don't know. But our ratings are gonna be amazing.

    • Dodee: Phil, something bad is going on out there. It could be solar flares disrupting the entire grid.
      Phil: Dodee! The cable's out--it doesn't mean it's the end times.
      Dodee: When roving packs of mutants start swarming this place, don't say I didn't warn you.

      Dodee: Sounds like Bjork.

    • Linda: Why Chester's Mill? Why us?
      Duke: Maybe we're being punished.

    • Phil: Now why is it that engineers always act superior to DJs?

    • Injoke: Ben mentions The Simpsons Movie and says "they totally saw the dome coming." In real life, Stephen King wrote the original idea for Under the Dome, titled The Cannibals, several years before The Simpsons Movie came out. However, some critics and readers accused him of ripping off the plot of the movie, which features Springfield under a dome.

    • Ben: Whatley says it's straight out of Star Trek.
      Referencing the original Star Trek (1966-69), starring William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship Enterprise. The series spawned numerous spinioffs, movies, novels, and comic books. The Enterprise itself has a force field surrounding it, while many episodes included impenetrable force fields.

    • Big Jim: Just like Butch and Sundance, huh?
      Referencing the 1969 Western movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It is loosely based on the exploits of bank robbers Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and The Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), and popularized the legends of the two historical figures. The movie ends with Butch and Sundance charging out into the guns of the Bolivian Army rather than be taken alive.

    • Norrie: That thing blew up like the Death Star.
      Referencing the mobile space platform first seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977). Commanded by Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader for use by the Emperor, it is approximately 140 kilometers in diameter, holds over a million crew and staff, and contains weaponry capable of blowing a planet to bits in a matter of seconds.

    • Norrie: Nope, you're a mutant like Wolverine.
      Referencing the Marvel Comics character who first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #180 (October 1974) and was created by Len Wein, John Romita Sr., and Herb Trimpe. Wolverine, aka Logan, is a mutant with the X-Men, possessing the power of enhanced regeneration, allowing him to heal wounds at an accelerated rate. His healing allowed him to receive a transplant of indestructible metal bones and claws, making it all but impossible to kill him.

    • Phil: I've been listening to her E.T.-phone-home thing, but the military broadcasts dropped off last night so all we've been getting are random numbers and crap.
      Referencing the title character in the 1982 movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. The small wizened alien is stranded on Earth when his people are forced to flee, and takes refuge in a nearby home. The boy living there, Elliott, befriends the alien and helps him to summon his people and return home.

    • Phil: Kind of sounds like the alien from Aliens.
      Referencing the 1986 movie, the second in the Aliens franchise. In it, the sole survivor of the first movie, Ellen Ripley, is convinced to lead a Marine squad to the planet where the alien was found. There they discover that the settlers have uncovered more of the creatures and a bloody slaughter ensues.

    • Norrie: How am I supposed to compete with a girl he thinks is from a galaxy far, far away?
      Referencing the Star Wars movie franchise. Star Wars is an epic space opera franchise and a fictional universe initially developed by George Lucas during the 1970s and expanded since that time. Each movie in the series starts with the words "A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...". This sentence became one of the series' most famous catchphrases, along with other lines like "May the Force be with you."

    • Joe: I'm talking to two girls who probably loved The Notebook.
      Referencing the 1996 novel by Nicholas Sparks, where a young man returns from the battlefields of World War II and falls in love from with the daughter of a wealthy family. It was made into a movie in 2004.
