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.


  • Heather Swanson from the previous episode can be seen among the women at Sheila's meeting at the beginning of the episode.
  • 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.
