Trivia

References to Popular Culture

  • The video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is mentioned multiple times and is used as a bargaining chip.
  • Throughout the episode, there are multiple references to the 1984 film, Dune:
    • Spice Melange or "The Spice" is heavily referenced throughout the episode.
    • Tom Brady's housekeeper, Mable Gonzales, is a parody of Shadout Mapes, the housekeeper.
    • A Sandworm emerges from the desert before transitioning to Tom Brady's poop in the toilet.
    • Kyle's glowing blue eyes parody the side effect caused by taking "The Spice".
    • The main theme song from the film plays after Kyle opens the bookcase that reveals Tom Brady's secret vault.
    • The use of whispered voice overs by the characters in regards to "The Spice" is also from the film.
  • The line where Linda utters 'fucker, fuck her', is a reference from the 1995 film Showgirls.
  • The scene where the feces was erupting from the soil with a mouth covered with teeth, is a reference to the were-worm from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
  • One of the women calls Sheila "anal retentive"; this term derives from Freudian psychoanalysis; Freud said that if a child is too strongly chastised for toilet-training accidents, he/she may develop "anal retentive" fixations or personality traits. These traits are associated with a child's efforts at excretory control: orderliness, stubbornness, and compulsions for control. Of course, it also puns on Sheila's insistence on "retaining" the contents of her anus.

Continuity

  • Heather Swanson from the previous episode can be seen among the women at Sheila's meeting at the beginning of the episode.
  • When Harriet calls Sheila "that cunt", this is the second time the word "cunt" has been said uncensored in the series. The first time was by Santa Claus in "Bike Parade".
  • Tom Brady's feces was previously shown, in much bigger mass due to wrong drugs usage, in "Taming Strange".
  • A needle disposal bin is visible in the doctor's office, and it is correctly colored red (biohazard); this could be a reference to the earlier episode "Season Finale" which incorrectly colored a needle disposal bin white.
