- Shout-Out: To West Side Story.SCULLY: Maria ... Maria ... I just met a girl named Maria.
- And a simultaneous Shout-Out and Take That:Mulder: Witnesses described a bright flash about 30 degrees off the horizon, then a hot yellow rain fell from a cloudless sky.

- And a simultaneous Shout-Out and Take That:
- Unreliable Narrator: Story is narrated by Flakita who is shown to be a little bit of a Cloud Cuckoolander with her absurd conclusion to the story.
- Then it shifts to Gabriella who narrates an equally weird version of the same conclusion.
