Allusions Edit

  • The title of this episode is taken from the 1968 horror film Night of the Living Dead by George A. Romero. The film is considered a cult classic and is the benchmark work for introducing the revisionist concept of the flesh-eating zombie.
  • The FAA investigator makes reference to the Darwin Awards in this episode. The Darwin Awards began as an online joke bestowing a fictional honor upon those who have selected themselves out of the gene pool by doing something incredibly stupid and inevitably fatal, and thus promoting the continued survival of the human race with their absence.
  • Peyton Charles makes reference to the Greek legend of Daedalus and Icarus in this episode. The story follows that Daedalus and Icarus made wings made of wax in order to escape from a prison, but when they flew too close to the sun, the wings melted and they fell.

Quotes Edit

  • Liv Moore: Even if I laid out here long enough, I still wouldn't get a tan. I used to have freckles. I miss my freckles.


  • Liv Moore: Of everyone here, who would you eat first?
  • Ravi Chakrabarti: I think first I'd ask if someone could spare an apple. Or half a sandwich.



  • FAA investigator: [Upon meeting Liv] Man, I though the insides of my thighs were pale.


  • Liv Moore: Holly was the opposite of me. She was adventurous and free. I was disciplined and safe. She was unlike anyone I'd ever met. There wasn't a Mu Theta rule she didn't violate. I guess that's why we kicked her out. Even though I didn't understand her, part of me wished I could be her.


  • Peyton Charles: You know, if she spent more time reading than flipping the bird to gravity, she'd know that you're going down when you fly too close the sun.


  • Liv Moore: I think she was "dying as a consequence of life" kind of girl.
  • Peyton Charles: That's a nice thought. But people who say that, say that from the comfort of their aliveness.


  • Liv Moore: I wanna be alive. Now more than ever.
