Cordelia: I don't care what horrible thing's about to happen. Asteroids are hurtling towards earth. Unspeakable evil is rising in the San Fernando Valley. Jar Jar is getting his own talk show.
This is several references in one:
•Asteroids hurtling towards earth refer to the fact that in 1998 there were two movies released with the basic plot of an asteroid hurtling towards the earth that is big enough to destroy all life on earth. The movies were Armageddon and Deep Impact.
•The evil rising in San Fernando Valley is probably a small rib to the fact Charisma was on the television series Malibu Shores which was set in the San Fernando Valley.
•Jar Jar is the name of a character from Star Wars Episode I : The Phantom Menace. He is widely considered to be the most annoying thing ever conceived.
