  • Allusions

    • The title of the episode is an allusion to the 1895 Oscar Wilde play, The Importance Of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy For Serious People. The play is also referred to during the episode.

    • A magical corridor filled with doors leading to different Erica-worlds alludes to the 1955 C.S. Lewis classic fantasy novel, The Magician's Nephew, wherein two children, Digory and Polly, find themselves in a sleepy, narcotic wood which is filled with pools. The children surmise that the wood is a "wood between the worlds" and that each pool leads to a proper universe - so, seeking adventure, they jump into one of the pools.
