Cultural References Edit

  • Amy asks Charles if he and Vivian will dance to "You Give Me Fever" at their wedding. The song, actually just called "Fever," was made popular by Peggy Lee.
  • Jake compares himself to actor George Clooney when defending his love of make-believe.
  • When Jake claims he only sees Amy as a sister, Charles says "That's what Luke said about Leia." Jake replies, "Luke didn't know! No one knew!" This is referencing a plot twist from the Star Wars series. Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia share a kiss, only to find out later that they are twins separated at birth.
  • Charles says his insinuating voice sounds like Meryl Streep in the film "Mamma Mia!" It's possible he could have meant Streep's role in "Julie and Julia" instead. In that film, she portrays Julia Childs, a world famous chef with a distinctive high voice.
  • Charles compares their training exercise to Jurassic Park: The Ride, a theme park attraction.

Soundtrack Edit

  • "Busy Child" by The Crystal Method plays during a montage of last year's training course.

Trivia Edit

  • The episode's title, "Tactical Village," is said four times by Jake during the morning briefing.
  • Ray Holt gets addicted to the game Kwazy Cupcakes a spoof of candy crush. Kwazy Cupcakes was later made into a real videogame.
  • After beating the course record, Jake gives his team free t-shirts. Boyle's reads VICTIM, Rosa's reads CORPSE, Scully's reads BABY, Amy's reads YOUNG BOY and Terry's is not shown on camera.
