When the patient, Vince, mentions that he might have mercury poisoning because he eats a lot of sushi, Thirteen replies, "And you're currently getting mixed reviews in "Speed-the-Plow" on Broadway?" This is a reference to actor Jeremy Piven, who left the Broadway show "Speed-the-Plow" in late 2008 citing mercury poisoning as the reason. Piven claims that he ate sushi twice a day for 20 years.
