Plot synopsis Edit
Archer, Lana, Ray, Rip Riley and Noah attempt to escape the Pirate Fortress of Pangu Island, meanwhile Malory hardballs the negotiation for their ransom. A fight breaks out between Archer and Bucky, and Ray and Lana are injured by stray bullets. After Archer insults his mother over the phone for her promiscuity, she furiously changes her mind and tells him he's on his own. During their escape attempt, Archer is tempted to abandon the others to take part in a pirate lacrosse game, but Lana threatens to end their friendship if he does. They make it back to ISIS, and Bucky is arrested while Ray is confined to a wheelchair.
- Throughout the episode, there is a running gag about Archer never being able to get out of trouble without his mother's help to which he keeps replying "Columbia House." (Columbia House is known for their legal-binding memberships.)
- After Archer takes Bucky's gun in the prison, Bucky begins a short monologue that is similar to Clint Eastwood's in "Dirty Harry."
- After Rip Riley's eye wound is wrapped, he yells at Archer who responds, "Hey, relax Nick Furious!", a reference to Marvel character Nick Fury . Riley and Fury share not only an eye cover, but have very similar hair. Adam Reed has made reference to Nick Fury's organization, S.H.I.E.L.D., in previous work, such as with the Xtacles' flying base in "Frisky Dingo."
- While Lana is firing the Helicopter mounted machine gun, she screams lines from Full Metal Jacket.
- The name of Archer's lacrosse team, "Archers of Loafcrosse", is a reference to the 90's indie-rock band Archers of Loaf, while the other team's name, "Lax-mi Singhers" is a reference to NPR newscaster Lakshmi Singh.
- When Ray tries hoisting Lana up to the trap door in the dungeon cell but comes up short, Sterling says "Missed it by that much", which is a reference to a frequently used phrase by Maxwell Smart of the show Get Smart.
