- During the singing scene, Martin (as Max Lorenz) announced he was going to sing "The Sound of Music" from the musical of the same name. However he sung "Edelweiss" instead, which was featured in the musical.
- Also during the singing scene, Martin addresses the orchestra, saying "Watch me for the changes and try to keep up". This is a verbatim quote (in quite the same situation) from a scene in the 1985 film Back to the Future.
- When Reverse-Flash steals the amulet from its case, a pair of Wonder Woman's Bracelets of Submission is sitting next to it.
- The motorbike that Nate and Henry were driving has the same license plate (WH13371) as the one Steve McQueen rode in the iconic scene of The Great Escape.
- Nate tells his grandfather the latter died before he was born. In the comics, Commander Steel died in an issue of the Eclipso comic book series, a decade or so before Nate made his first appearance.
- When the Legends are trying to infiltrate Folies-Bergére, they overhear Herr Krieger talk to another person. In the ensuing dialogue, he says "o'ten hundred tomorrow". The mistake is quite clear when you write it out in numbers (0 10:00); two-digit numbers aren't prefixed by a 0, even in military/24 hour time format.
