Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "Feels like I have the bends." refers to decompression sickness, in which dissolved gases turn into bubbles inside the body during depressurization. The effects and symptoms can be anything from joint pain to paralysis.
  • "I have the right stuff." refers to a common phrase used by former NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz, who often mentioned 'the right stuff' in when referring to attributes of his employees. Kranz was the flight director for the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission.
  • "Snow cone? They're lemon." is a reference to the Abominable Snowman in the animated film Monsters Inc., in where he offers the main characters lemon snow cones by saying the same line. Also, "Welcome to the Himalayas." is a reference to his greeting in the same scene.
  • "You must be confused, Harold was my mentor's name." is a reference to the human scientist Harold Winston from whom Winston gained his knowledge of science and human ingenuity. Harold is also very likely the origin of Winston's name. It may also be a reference to the Yeti animatronic inside Disneyland's Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction, who was given the same name.
  • "Yetis bounce" is a reference to the Bumble, a yeti-like character from the Rankin-Bass stop-motion feature Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, when Yukon Cornelius explains at the end of the film that "Bumbles bounce."
  • "Houston, uhh, we have a problem." refers to the phrase "Houston, we've had a problem here." spoken by the crew of the Apollo 13 moon flight, and the misquote "Houston, we have a problem." used in the movie Apollo 13.
  • "I got a rock... of Gibraltar!" refers to the animated special It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!, where Charlie Brown complains of receiving rocks while trick-or-treating.
  • "Now is the winter of our discontent" is a reference to Richard III (Act 1, Scene 1) by Shakespeare.
  • "Get a load of this!" may be a reference to Dr. Eggman in the 1999 video game Sonic Adventure.
  • D.Va's reaction to Winston in the line 'A giant gorilla! Just like in those old video games!' likely alludes to the classic 1981 Nintendo game Donkey Kong, in which the title character is a giant gorilla.
