There are numerous allusions made to the movie, The Truman Show, including the episode title, which is Truman's catchphrase. Eric dresses himself as Christoff, the director, and Jack and Rachel are plagued by a centralized storm that follows them around the apartment.
Walking in the woods, Peter wonders out loud if the world was created just for him. Cutaway to a control room just like the one in this film where Christof and a technician are watching him on a monitor. "Do you think he's onto us, Christof?" "No, he's an idiot!".
The title is an obvious reference to this film.
Tv news announcer Kent Brockman says "Day 37 under the Dome!" on Moe's Bar television set. This brief sequence actually spoofs the way Truman's days of his life tick away on the reality Tv show, which in Peter Weir's movie is being watched by many people in a similar bar.
The scene where Bob Kane reveals the truth to the cast is a spoof of the ending of The Truman Show.
