Cultural References

  • When Hen says "clever girl" when surprised by the second Alpaca this is a quote from the film Jurassic Park, when a second velociraptor surprises a man distracted hunting a different one.
  • Another reference to Jurassic Park is made when Chimney says, "After careful consideration, I've decided not to endorse this park."
