This episode contains several references to the first episode of season 3 "Heart of Archness part 1". 1) Archer is hiding out on a French Polynesian island. 2) Archer wakes up next to a woman on her honeymoon. 3) Archer makes a joke in the season 3 episode about "Rip Riley's" sea plane being from the 30's; which both Archer flies a sea plane and the entire season 9 takes place in the 30's. 4) Archer crashes the sea plane in season 3 by putting the wheels down and in this season, the same scenario occurs.
