    • As Alan Shepard lifts off on Freedom 7, CapCom Deke Slayton says, "You're on your way, Jose!" Although not explained in the episode, this is a reference to comedian Bill Dana's routine in which his character Jose Jimenez pretends to be an astronaut. A recording of Dana's routine was actually patched into the radio communications loop before Shepard's liftoff; the launch was delayed for hours and apparently fellow astronaut Gordo Cooper thought Shepard needed to relax for a few minutes.
