      • Head Nurse Lucy [as she finishes the nurses' meeting]: And hey, remember, let's be caring out there.

        A reference to Hill Street Blues, where Sgt. Phil Esterhaus (Michael Conrad) would end each meeting with, "And remember, let's be careful out there". It became a signature line of each episode until Conrad's death in 1984.

      • Slip Slidin' Away

        This episode takes its inspiration from the hit song by Paul Simon. Slip Slidin' Away (1977) famously contains the line "the nearer your destination, the more you slip slidin' away". As the song suggests, in this episode, many characters find their hopes and plans snatched away from them while on the verge of achievement.
