      Specifically, to the bottom two options on Mom's remote control: Serve Man (Regular)/ Serve Man (Ironic)
      . This is a reference to the classic 1962 Twilight Zone episode To Serve Man.

      In the episode, Aliens called Kanamits come to earth, promising to end hunger and disease on Earth, as well as providing trips to their home world, which is a paradise. At the beginning of the episode, the Kanamits give a book as a gift, but is written in the alien's language and not readily understandable, save for the book's title To Serve Man.

      In the last scene, as the main researcher into the alien's language boards a Kanamit ship, his colleague runs to him and explains that the book is actually a cookbook, giving a new and much more sinister meaning to the book's title and the Kanamits intentions.
