Trivia

  • The title of the episode refers to the RV the Legends travel in.
  • This is the first episode of the series not to feature Jes Macallan (Ava Sharpe) after being promoted to a series regular.
  • The episode features multiple references to Alan J. Pakula's film All the President's Men; without Nixon's exposure, the film was never released, which resulted in Robert Redford's career floundering.
    • As Mick points out, the domino effect of Redferd not having a successful career is "no Sundance, no indie film, no artful nudity".
      • This marks the first time Mick has shown initiative to fix the timeline.
  • Hank serving as the interim Time Bureau director may be a parallel to the Sirens of Space-Time timeline from "Legends of To-Meow-Meow".
  • With Mona officially joining the Legends this episode, this marks the first time the team has had a female majority (3 male, 4 female) unless one counts Gideon as a member or includes Ava's visits in the first half of the season.
  • Constantine's spell for removing Ma'at's truth roach, "Vi veri universum vivus vici", is Latin for "By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe". This phrase was also seen in the DC Comics film, V for Vendetta.
  • Hank mistakenly addresses Gideon as "Siri" and "Alexa" (the virtual assistants developed by Apple and Amazon respectively) when trying to operate the Waverider.
  • Constantine saying "Let's put Dick in a box" as he puts Richard Nixon in the closet may be a reference to SNLs debut single by the same name.
  • Under the influence of the truth roach, Ray expresses his belief that Han didn't shoot first in the 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope.
  • The author name for Body of Proof which is Rebecca Silver was also the name of the heroine of the cartoon Bat Pat, which aired years before this episode
  • At 8 minutes, 17 seconds into the episode, as the Get Away van is driving away, there is a blue VW Beetle. At 9 minutes, 6 seconds, in the van, Ray says "Punchbuggy, no punch-backs." The car may be a nod to the DC character Ted Kord, AKA Blue Beetle.
  • It's possible that female Kaupe naturally have long hair, as Mona's hair grew out during her transformation.
  • Constantine continues to hold to his determination not to wear disguises and to maintain his own uniform/costume, and thus is the only member of the team in the RV not to wear the reunion T-shirt.

Goofs

  • The police car that pulls over the RV in 1973 was a 1978 Plymouth Fury.
  • After the RV fades away, both Hank and Nate are wearing 'smokie' hats and patrol jackets. The officer they took the car from was alone-and would not have had two hats and jackets in the car.
