** The contours of the rows in Applejack's fields are vaguely reminiscent of Rabbit's from the 80's/90's "Winnie the Pooh" animated TV series.

** The dogs at the table in Discord's club are similar or may exactly be characters from sister series "Pound Puppies."

* Cheese Sandwich IS Music/WeirdAlYankovic, to the point of looking exactly like him and even being voiced by him.

** Returning to the Indiana Jones shoutouts we come to Dr. Cabelleron taunting Daring Do and Pinkie Pie from a square hole at the tip of a pyramid, reminiscent of Belloq impugning Dr. Jones when the latter is in the Well of Souls in "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
** Finally, Cabelleron turning the town of Somnambulant against Daring Do parallels a situation in "The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger," by Stephen King. At the beginning of the book the villain persuades the people of Tull to turn against hero Roland Deschain when he arrives.

There is also the "leap of faith" that is seen at the end of "The Last Crusade."

** This is a deep one or a shout out full of shout-outs and apophenia:
*** Somnambula is a few letters short of the adjective somnambulant; defined as prone to sleepwalk. Somnambula the character does not sleepwalk in the episode but she crosses a bridge blindfolded to save a prince from Sphinx.
*** The Leap of Faith has many connections apart from being a popular expression and a Broadway musical based off a Steve Martin movie. Being uttered twice in this episode the "leap of faith" one was used by Indiana Jones near the end of "The Last Crusade; two, it was the title of a season four episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," which featured the Apple family; three, Pinkie Pie last used the words "leap of faith," in season one episode "Feeling Pinkie Keen," only this time she and Daring Do take the leap of faith instead of Twilight and land on...
*** ...Pyramid geysers which they cross to save Rainbow Dash and demonstrate a literal interpretation of the proverb "Hope springs eternal." Hope is also the answer to the Sphinx's riddle for Somnambula.



** Glopaz=Topaz.
** The statue of Sonambula at the episode's end is reminiscent of many depictions of Lady Justice often referring to the phrase "Justice is blind."



* In the Season 2 finale, Spike is shown playing with wedding cake figures of Princess Cadance and Shining Armor. Guess which two ponies are going to be in an upcoming play set together?

** Cheese Sandwich's episode and as well the one where Dash meets Daring Do are mentioned after the journal splice which led this writer to wonder how the Friendship Jounal became so dilapidated in such a shot time. Given that all the episodes from Season One to Season 5 episode "Make New Friends but Keep Discord," constitute one year...short answers: the journal was damaged first when Tirek destroyed the Golden Oak Library in the Season 4 finale and second when a brain-washed Rainbow Dash flooded the castle with rainwater during Season 6 episode "Everything She does is Magic." Also Twilight and Spike must have overlooked the journal immeadiatly after arriving upon Starlight's magically induced accident because of its sheer scope.

** Ember shares her name with two other female dragons. The first is Ember Longtail from "The Silver Moon Elm: A Jennifer Scales Novel," by Mary Janice Davidson and Anthony Alongi. The second is from the video game: "Spyro: A Hero's Tail," an installment from the "Spyro the Dragon" series pre-dating the "Legend of Spyro" trilogy and the current "Skylanders"' franchise. The sleek appearance of MLP:FiM's Ember, however is more reminiscent to Cynder in the reboot trilogy and "Skylanders." Furthermore, unlike quadrupedal Ember from Davidson's and Alongi's book, the "Spyro the Dragon" series and Cynder from the reboot and "Skylanders" Equestria's Ember is bipedal and blue rather than pink or black.

** Probably a subject with more similarities than those to be presented is the poster for Trixie's magic show. The "eyes without a face" (not to be confused with a Billy Idol song) element resembles the album cover for Styx's "The Grand Illusion!" the 1925 Francis Cugat cover illustration for "The Great Gatzby," and the novel cover appearing at the end of Season 4's MLP:FiM episode 'Daring Don't.' The crystal ball carries a more loose thematic reference to the album covers of Styx's "Crystal Ball;" and Electric Light Orchestra's (ELO) "Discovery."

** The second half of the episode appears as an thrilling ode to 'Hide and Q' from "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Case in point, John De Lancie as Q being dissatisfied with the Enterprise crew for not entertaining his return and De Lancie as Discord being dissatisfied with Big Mac's and Spike's insistence on playing 'Ogres and Oubliettes'. Next, the brown gameboard in the MLP:FiM episode is similar to the barren wasteland in the ST:TNG episode. Finally Discord's magic bubble for Big Mac being akin to the penalty box for Tasha Yar. Then mix these nuances with the general dichotomies of setting and overall plot in both episodes and here be one rocket launch of an entry to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

** It also has another "Yakkety Sax" chase-scene, with a ''ScoobyDoo'' [[ScoobyDoobyDoors door gag]] and ''AHardDaysNight'' reference thrown in for good measure.
