  • Allusions

    • The Incredible Hulk
      Stan Lee briefly appears in this episode as a candidate for the space flight by promoting his use of gamma radiation. This was what led Dr. Bruce Banner to becoming the super-strong green-skinned monster created by Lee and Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics in 1962. Also notice in the background of Lee's scene there are various x-rays that bear images seen in The Incredible Hulk TV series starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno (as Dr. Banner and the Hulk respectively) that aired from 1978-82. Lastly, the music played in the background of the scene is the same music played at the end of every Hulk episode as David Banner walks away (called "The Lonely Man"). In the manner of Dr. Bruce Banner, Lee goes on to say, "Don't make me angry, son. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."

    • Zane: The P.A.L.s scan and analyze potential security and safety risks. Then they play the outcomes in live action, giving you a variable time frame for them to become reality.
      Fargo: Yeah, it's like having your own Professor Xavier.
      Carter: Who's Professor Xavier?
      Zane: Okay, I'm gonna pretend you didn't just say that.
      Fargo references the character from the Marvel Comics' X-Men, later made into a successful film franchise by Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox.

    • Dr. Gregor: I have developed a sleep chamber which balances levels of melatonin, and as—
      Fargo: Thank you, next.
      Dr. Gregor: What? Why?
      Fargo: Oh, I don't know, Dr. Gregor. Maybe because your chamber has the strong possibility of putting its user in a level one GCS coma. We're going to Titan, not Neverland.

      Fargo is, of course, referencing J.M. Barrie's fictional world from his play Peter Pan.
