- River is going to GEARS University with you.
River: I can't sleep lately. My dreams have been getting more vivid... Something's down there. Something big...
- River is named after the character River from the TV show Firefly and movie Serenity, who also hears voices and acted as if she was crazy.
- Another NPC, Worsh, also is a reference to both shows, so the two characters may be connected.
