Page 5, panel 3
Booster Gold answers the emergency signal on the Justice League satellite Watchtower. Also responding are Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Mary Marvel, and Superman. When the League responds to the emergency in Star City, guess who gets selected to stay behind on monitor duty?

Page 13, panel 7
Booster's "Mighty Joe Young" comment is a reference to Gorilla Grodd. There have been two movies titled Mighty Joe Young (1949, 1998), both about a giant ape. Booster probably has plenty of time to watch movies on monitor duty.

Page 18, panel 6
Now Booster calls Gorilla Grodd "Magilla." This is a reference to the Hanna-Barbara Magilla Gorilla cartoon character of the middle 1960s. Booster has time to watch cartoons, too.
