References to Wizard of Oz
- The planet Woz is clearly meant to be "Oz" with the letter W at the beginning. The planet is desolate and twister-covered, as a reference to the twister that takes Dorothy to the land of the Munchkins.
- A twister brings the crew's moth down on one of the Wozzard's fredom fighters, mirroring the death of the Wicked Witch of the East.
- The Wozzard is a clear parody of the Wizard and at one point shouts "the wicked bitch is dead!" He is portrayed as sadistic and corrupt and obsessed with destroying the Dark Lady.
- The Dark Lady, meanwhile, is the complete reverse of her counterpart, the Wicked Witch of the West -
- The episode ends with regular character Xev saying "There's no place like home."
