    • Episode Title: "Insane in the P-Brane"

    • Ghostbusters
      The hand-held T.I.R.D. device that Dr. Drechmeyer used throughout the episode has two prongs that move up and down on top of the device. This alludes to the PKE (Psychokinetic Energy) meter, a device used by the Ghostbusters in the 1984 Ivan Reitman film of the same name.
