    • Le Petit Prince: The episode's title refers to the novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a French writer and aviator. Though outwardly a children's book, it has varied themes on life, perception and human nature. Exupery was French, like Rousseau's science expedition, and met with disaster while travelling and disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Additionally, "Besixdouze" ("B612"),though it should be written "Bsixdouze" to make sense in French, the apparent name of the expedition's lost boat (as per the wreckage on the beach), is a reference to the asteroid on which The Little Prince lives in the book.
