    • Character Sam Urp's name is a homonym for the Earp brothers -- Wyatt, Morgan and Virgil -- who, along with Doc Holliday, participated in the infamous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. They make a second allusion to the Earps when they mention Tombstone at the end of the episode.
