    • The Ring of Fire is a nod to the GoldenEye weapon;
    • After capturing Barry and Ralph, Meister states, "I expect you to die!", which is a quote from the movie Goldfinger as it is also noted by Ralph;
      • Similarly, the cannon Meister points to Barry and Ralph mirrors the weapon used by Goldfinger in the move;
  • Ralph originally introduced himself as "Dibny. Ralph Dibny." in "Into the Void".
  • After finding the sonic wrench in Cisco's workshop, Chester says, "I'm the Doctor", which is an iconic quote of the Doctor from Doctor Who.
