Short summary

In a moment of gallantry, Archer offers to accompany tearful Pam to Wisconsin. Her sister, Edie, is marrying an eligible local dairyman and Pam, a bridesmaid, needs a date. Pam is upset her sister named Midge Olerud her maid of honor. Pam tells Archer about old humiliations wreaked upon her by sister, Edie and Midge Olerud. Meanwhile, Cyborg Barry, is en route to New York to kill Archer. Barry spots Archer and Pam at the airport and follows them to the old motor court in Wisconsin. Archer has pitchers of cocktails as Pam dresses for the rehearsal dinner. Barry freezes in the parking lot as he watches the door to their motel room. Complications arise when Archer opens the door and greets a loud mouthed visitor with a familiar face.

Archer has a shotgun stored in a rose box, a reference to Terminator 2.

Archer mentions Asimov's three laws of robotics. Asimov's 3 laws of robotics are: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

The second reference to FX's "Fargo" is that Edie Poovey is played by Allison Tolman that also played a main character in Fargo's season 1.

Lana goes to SERE school. SERE stands for: Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape.

Pam suggests that Sterling go by the name Gordon Shumway. This was real name of the character Alf, from the tv show of the same name.

Barry is shown wearing a dark blue and orange jacket with "CHICAGO" on it. This is a reference to Chicago's professional football team, the Bears (dark blue and orange being their primary colors) and their longstanding rivalry with the Green Bay Packers (most of the episode being set in Wisconsin).

The mention of Ike Turner when Archer slaps Pam for crying refers to the musician Ike Turner, who was outed for domestic abuse by Tina Turner in her autobiography.

The ambulance Arn hits Barry with is a 1968 Cadillac ambulance conversion.

When they finally get to the top of the silo Barry sings out "Archer come out and play!" Is from the movie The Warriors (1979).

When the ambulance approaches the burning silo, the ambulance crew say, "Sir, is that a man?" with the reply, "You're damn right it is." This dialogue comes from a scene in The Right Stuff after Chuck Yeager crashes the F-104.

When Archer asks Pam if her sister poured pig's blood on her head at prom, this was a reference to the movie Carrie.
