  • Allusions

    • Episode title: Red Dawn


      This is likely an allusion to the 1984 movie Red Dawn. A jingoistic Red Scare movie about an invasion by the Soviets and American resistance.

    • Dreamer: We do a Wookiee Gambit.
      Dreamer references the scene in the 1977 American movie Star Wars Episode IV: A  New Hope, when Han and Luke disguise themselves as Stormtroopers and take Chewbacca--a Wookiee--into the Death Star pretending that he's their prisoner.
