When Lacie (Bryce Dallas Howard) is at the airline counter, her screen indicates that her flight is from BPA to PMA. PMA is presumably Port Mary, where the wedding is to be. In real airport terms, however, BPA is code for Bethpage NY and PMA is code for Pemba, Tanzania, an unlikely destination since it's said that it is a nine-hour drive.

The fictitious sci-fi show of Sea of Tranquility, with it obsessive fans dressing up and attending conventions, is reminiscent of Star Trek. The nickname "Tranqhead" is similar to Trekkie and Trekker, both used for Star Trek fans. Alice Eve, who plays Naomi, was in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). Black Mirror later alluded to Star Trek again in its fourth season premiere, USS Callister.
