Cultural References

  • The flight attendant incident is similar to the 2010 Jetblue flight attendant incident where a veteran flight attendant announced over the plane's public address system that he had been abused by a passenger and was quitting his job, then grabbed two beers and exited the plane by deploying the evacuation slide and sliding down it.
  • Chimney mentions all his years playing Operation would pay off while trying to get the champagne cork out of Darrell's neck.
  • The 600 COVID vaccines that were distributed actually happened in January 2021 at the Ukiah Valley Medical Center in Mendocino County, where the freezer had broken hours prior and no alarm had gone off. [3]
