      • Alton: If you've got a pepper shaker on your table, I want you to pick it up. I want you to go over to the window, open the window, and yell, "I'm mad as..."

        Alton is mimicking the iconic scene from the 1976 film Network, when Howard Beale (Peter Finch) encourages his viewers to vent their anger by opening their windows and yelling, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

      • This episode is "peppered" with allusions to the Beatles, including the episode title and character, Sergeant Pepper, both referencing the album Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. There's also dialogue mentioning "getting better all the time" and a girl named Lucy (from "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds").
