  • The scene in which Frank descends from the plane and talks to Ed (before 'Weird Al' Yankovic's appearance) is a nod to Jean Renoir~'s La Règle du jeu. The dialog is not exactly the same, but the setup mirrors the beginning of that film (a man has achieved a remarkable feat, yet is saddened that his love is not there to greet him).

  • While Gates is attempting to decipher the first clue on board the Charlotte, after Shaw suggests "Prison," Riley says, "Albuquerque. See, I can do it too. Snorkel."
