At 1:12 in the episode, a number of different kinds of light
vehicles are seen on the expressway in Argon City.
The character of Keller, inventor of the pathogenic code in
this episode, is probably named for Sister Mary Kenneth
Keller (1913-1985), a Sister of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed
Virgin Mary and a computer science pioneer who was involved
with the development of the BASIC computer programming
We see ambulances in the system for the first time in this
At 16:24 in the episode, Pavel asks Keller, "Why the long
face?" He asks because she is unhappy that her research is
being used by Tesler as a form of mind control on the
citizens of Argon. But the question may also be a bit of a
joking wink to the fact that the art style in Tron:
Uprising uses rather long faces on most of the characters.
At 17:28 in the episode, the dirigible's control wheel
displays "135.5 MPH". Is MPH supposed to be "Miles Per
Hour"? If so, it seems odd that a term like "miles" would be
used in the system (but not impossible).
At 18:13 in the episode, notice that the mind-controlled
Mara has destroyed the "V" in the TRON LIVES graffiti,
turning it into TRON LIES.
