- Eel Musk is a reference to Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and Space X, though in real life, Elon doesn't own a telephone company.
- The illness Rekha is referencing is the COVID-19 virus, as during the pandemic, it was a widespread superstition that the virus was caused by satellite, radio waves, and cell networks, referred to as "5G", which simply stands for the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks. It is unclear how this illness is translated in-universe.
