- This episode shows how Wander and Sylvia first met.
- Sylvia breaks the fourth wall when she says "We can't keep wasting our time watching past episodes...of our lives."
- This episode confirms that Wander was previously known as Tumbleweed, a fact that was first mentioned in "The Good Bad Guy".
- Apparently, Sylvia worked as a bounty hunter before she decided to join Wander on his travels, and even captured Wander at one point, a fact that she is not proud of.
- Wander and Sylvia visit the events of the past episodes including "The Picnic" and "My Fair Hatey".
- Several scenes from previous episodes are seen when Wander and Sylvia are time traveling:
- The background music from "The Stray" is heard when Wander and Sylvia arrive at the abandoned orbble station.
- The scene where Wander meets Major Threat is played out exactly the same way as the opening scene from "The Picnic".
- When Wander sees Hater trapped in the spider web, it foreshadows the episode "The Search for Captain Tim".
- During the last time-travel sequence, a scene where a monkey in an astronaut outfit can be seen. This was probably a scene meant for the cancelled third season as the end credits of "The End of The Galaxy" showed a space shuttle with monkeys screaming.
- Star Wars - When Wander tells Sylvia about his encounter with Major Threat, he quotes the opening line of this film franchise.
- Wilmur and Orbble Wright are an obvious parody of Wilbur and Orville Wright who made the first airplane flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in 1903.
- When Wander says "Gotta get back...Back to the past!", he's clearly referencing the theme song for Samurai Jack.
