- The person in orange clothing, sitting near the fence, named Morgan Creek, says "5 marks for a piece of Sir Kevin's leather, and no sniffing allowed in the vicinity.", probably a reference to actors Morgan Freeman and Kevin Costner, who played together in the 1991 film "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves".
- On the bottom right you can find Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, a.k.a. the Two Guys from Andromeda, a.k.a. the designers of the Space Quest series. When talking to Mark (on the right), he says "Look at this place! They don't use janitors here. A sanitation specialist would die from breathing the air.", to which Scott replies "But they have lots of guys named Roger. They're all over the place." and "I can see it now - Roger Wilco Meets Robin Hood! Olde England Plunges to new Depths of Excitement as.." and Mark interrupts "You're not convincing me." When first talking to Scott (on the left), he says "Think of the potential' 'Two Guys From Nothingham' has a real ring to it." to which Mark replies "I don't know. Lacks a little something.". Scott continues "We can wear funny codpieces where they belong instead of on our faces!" and Mark replies "You're not convincing me."
