Despite being tortured by Lex Luthor's Yellow Lantern-goons, Booster Gold manages to remain defiant. Booster's quip, "Please sir... May I have another," appears to be a paraphrase of dialogue in the movie Animal House, where Kevin Bacon's character is being initiated into a fraternity with a spanking.

Booster Gold and Lex Luthor obliquely discuss the Greek myth of the inventor Daedalus and his son Icarus. According to myth, the pair tried to escape from prison using wax and feather wings of Daedalus' design. Icarus rashly flew too close to the sun which melted his wings, and he plunged to his death.
