** ''[[MindScrew Last Year At Marienbad]]'' is mentioned in Episode 18. This movie's theme is memories and their relation to reality... Interestingly enough, the movie was supposedly inspired by Adolfo Bioy Casares ''The Invention of Morel'', a novel about [[spoiler: a machine in a desert island that can record and reproduce reality and uses simulacra of real people to replay the same events time and time again. Its inventor killed everyone appearing in the re-enaction because after being recorded they were functionally immortal]]. The book is also strongly reminiscent of a certain TV series about [[{{Lost}} weird events in a desert island]].
