  • Bender's recall notice is a reference to the Ford Pinto, whose gas tank design made it especially vulnerable to collisions. Internal Ford Company memos were obtained by the press that contained a cost/benefit analysis favorably comparing settlement of potential liability claims with what was considered ultimately more expensive overall, an $11 repair to remedy the problem on each car.
  • Victor's salesman pitch is a reference to the Alfa Romeo sports car, and an advertisement for the Cross Your Heart bra.
  • Victor's accent is quite similar to Ricardo Montalbán. Montalbán was best known for his role as Mr. Roarke on Fantasy Island and as Khan in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. He also did advertisements for Chrysler praising it's "soft Corinthian leather" in a manner similar to Victor and the eagles.
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey is referenced when an "out of order" monolith is seen floating around Europa.
  • The gas station on Mercury is "Hg's gas station". Hg is the chemical symbol for the metallic element mercury.
  • Fry and Amy break down near a sign that says "Gas 4750 miles", and points in both directions. Since Mercury's equatorial circumference is roughly 9,525 miles, they're obviously at the farthest point from Hg's gas station.
  • The song is Scruffy the Cat's "Moons of Jupiter".
  • Al Gore is on the $500 bill.
  • According to the commentary, this is Gore's favorite episode.
  • When Amy calls the AAAAAAA (Septuple-A), the number she dials plays the first 5 notes from "Mary Had A Little Lamb."
