    • Episode Title: Failure is Not a Factory-Installed Option
      This is a pun on "Failure is Not an Option," a memorable line from the movie Apollo 13, spoken by NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz (Ed Harris). Gene Kranz didn't say this during the real Apollo 13 mission, but he liked the line and used it as the title of his autobiography in 2000.
