There is a reference to Majestic 12 in this conversation, as Heck tries to guess what agency Thorton is working for. Majestic 12 is a secret organization from many pop cultures sources. Notably, it was a major antagonist faction in the video game Deus Ex.

Another agency Heck names is TVC-15, a reference to the song of the same name by David Bowie off his 1976 album Station to Station.
