    • One of the films mentioned in the episode is called "Ponce de León.". Although during 1991 (the year when the episode aired) there was no current film playing in movie theatres with that name, there was another real film released that year called "Cabeza de Vaca." The names of the films refer to Juan Ponce de León, Spanish conquistador, and Álvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca, a Spanish explorer, both of whom participated in the colonization of the Americas by Spain in the 16th century. Considering all of these similarities, the "fake" film then seems to be a veiled reference to the real film.
