      • Ryan: "The smoke from the Vatican got here quickly".
        This episode aired the same night that the new Pope, Pope Francis, took over the Vatican. When the voting is done the cardinals send a smoke signal to inform the people what their decision is. If it is unsuccessful (no decision made yet) the smoke is black, if it is successful (a decision is made) it comes out white.
