- Trip makes a reference to Neil Armstrong in this episode. Neil Armstrong is an astronaut and one of the three-man crew to pilot the Apollo 11 space shuttle for an historic journey to the moon on July 20th, 1969. As the first human being to ever set foot on the surface of the moon, Neil Armstrong is known for two famous quotes, which has since become part of popular culture.

As he took his first steps onto the surface, Neil intoned, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".
