* HistoricalInJoke: [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Business as usual for the Legends]], but the fate of Apollo 13 is drastically different than how the audience knows it. Barring a GasLeakCoverup by NASA, Creator/RonHoward and Creator/TomHanks have a very different [[Film/Apollo13 movie about it]] in the Arrowverse.

** Downplayed: Upon learning that he is (for the moment) stuck on the Moon, Ray records a video aboard the moon lander concerning his situation... and it is '''blatantly''' plagiarized from ''Literature/The Martian''.

** He takes it one step further when he makes a video recording of him describing his situation, even saying "I'm gonna have to science the shit out of this." Except the word "shit" gets cut out by some static.
*** To ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', when Henry punches out Rip in the middle of a press conference then tells the reporters that Rip doesn't have his credentials, causing the frightened reporters to hurriedly show their to him. In addition, Amaya's destruction of Henry's ability to blend in is very similar to Indy's description of Marcus Brody to the Nazis (except it happens to be true in regards to Henry).

* MissedHimByThatMuch: The episode starts in 1965, with Rip dropping off Henry. As Rip leaves, we see in the background Rip enter with the Legends, looking for Henry. It helps that the second Rip [[ChangedMyJumper is wearing a blue suit instead of his usual attire]].

* RefugeInAudacity: Stein's idea to distract the NASA mission control room while Jax disabled communications was to loudly sing ''The Banana Boat Song'', at one point shouting "Everybody!" to start a singalong. Only Mick joins in.

* IncrediblyLamePun: After Ray has Thawne restrained, he says over radio to the team that ''He has his hands tied''. Thawne lampshades how lame it is.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: Nate, in a moment of anger, lets slip to Amaya the fate of her village in the future.


* ShoutOut: After Ray learns he's stuck on the Moon: [[Literature/TheMartian "Now I know how Matt Damon felt."]]

* WeNeedADistraction: Stein provides one for Jax to disrupt NASA communications so they won't see Ray's barely-averted crash landing. How does he do it? In classic Victor Garber fashion: By singing! He even gets Mick to join in, though Mick is definitely not thrilled with it.

* ExplosiveDecompression: Henry is blown out into space as soon as he opens the outer doors.

* LogicalWeakness: Thawne can't use his superspeed in zero gravity.



* WorfHadTheFlu: Due to the effects of being in the vacuum of space Thawne is unable to use his SuperSpeed which allows Ray to fight him on a more even playing field. While he does get his speed back once the Waverider re-enters the earth's atmosphere he's forced to leave without claiming the SpearOfDestiny fragment since the Black Flash is coming.

* BroughtDownToBadass: Even without his speed, Thawne is still skilled enough in combat to evenly fight Ray in his suit. Possibly justified, in that he was likely not using speed at all to keep the Black Flash away for as long as possible. Thawne's combat skills were shown previously during his three-on-one fight with Barry, Oliver, and the original Firestorm. In fact, he fought Ollie on equal terms after being injeted with speed-draining nanites (strangely enough, Ray appears to have forgotten designing these).

* StandardSnippet: "Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra" starts to play when Ray steps onto the Moon's surface.

Added DiffLines:

* LamePunReaction: Thawne is not impressed with Ray's quip about him being "tied up at the moment."
-->'''Thawne:''' Puns. The lowest form of humour.
