Mr. Lancer: War of the Worlds creature, get away from my youthful charges!
Lancer refers to the Femalien as a "War of the Worlds creature." War of the Worlds was originally a novel written by H.G. Wells in 1898 and it was about an invasion on Earth by another kind. It was made into a movie in 1953. Coincidentally, there was a remake of the movie released on June 29, 2005, just five days after this episode premiered. It starred Tom Cruise and was directed by Steven Spielberg.
