      • Poster: Join the Sultan's Death Squad

        This is an allusion to the famous "I want you for the US Army" poster from 1916, in which Uncle Sam points at the viewer. Careful observation reveals that the face and hand on the Sultan's poster are the original 'Uncle Sam', with the hat and clothes just painted over for a more berber-esque look. (The entire poster reads "Join the Sultan's Death Squad Today. Earn more money for college while learning valuable skills".)

      • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
        This episode's title is a reference to the musical Seven Brides for Sevan Brothers. Like this episode, the musical is about women being kidnapped to become the wives of their captors. Of course, the musical itself is based on an even more ancient source, the Roman historical myth of "The Rape of the Sabine Women".
