After Archer takes Bucky's gun in the prison, Bucky begins a short monologue that is similar to Clint Eastwood's "Do you feel lucky punk" speech from Dirty Harry.

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.
