References

  • "When you taste the abyss..." is a reference to Nietzsche's work, Jenseits von Gut und Böse (Beyond Good and Evil). Specifically, it is a reference to the line: "And when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." (Note some translations may vary slightly, as the original is in German.)
  • The brand name "All That" may be a reference to the phrase, "All that and a bag of chips." Usually it is used to describe someone as important, sometimes sarcastically.
  • Ennui is a French word that means boredom.
