Trivia

In this episode, the astronauts are discussing what will be said with the first step on the surface. At one point, Michael Collins (Cary Elwes) states, "If you had any balls, you'd say, 'Oh my God what is that thing?' then scream and cut the mic." In Princess Bride, Cary Elwes says "Oh my God what is that thing?" to Chris Sarandon's character toward the end of the film. See more »

Goofs

During the discussion about not hesitating to abort the issue, there is a package of Lucky Strike cigarettes on a desk. It has a bar code on it. Barcodes were not on products for purchasing until about 1973 and this scene is set in 1969. See more »
