  • 2001: A Space Odyssey - Towards the end of the episode, Byron's computer says these words: "A brother is the person whom you grew up with and who looooooooves you. ERROR! ERROR! My mind is going..." ...with the voice warping slightly during the last few words. This is a clear homage to the science-fiction narrative produced in 1968 as both a novel and a film, in which the computer Hal also utters "My mind is going" while "dying."
