- Chained Heat: Eliot and Hardison spend much of the episode chained together. Since they're Salt and Pepper, this is likely a Shout-Out to The Defiant Ones.
- Drives Like Crazy: Parker hits 140. In a sedan. Sophie shakily tells her never to get behind the wheel of a car ever again.
- Hollywood New England: The episode averts the idea that Western Massachusetts doesn't exist by having Nate, Sophie, and Parker re-route a train on its way to Fitchburg, a city in North Central Mass.
- No Sell: A militaman punches Spencer. It hurts his hand more than Spencer's face.
- Right-Wing Militia Fanatic: The villains of the episode.
