On last night's episode of FX's animated series Archer, Rush was referenced once again. In the opening scene of the episode, which is, titled Skin Game, the character Krieger says "How dare you fail to recognize my greatest accomplishment to date?", to which the character Pam replies "What, you finally nailed YYZ?" Krieger shouts back "It's Zed, and...no, Neil Peart (pronounced Pert) stands alone...".
Later, the main character Archer enters Krieger's lab which has a large Neil Peart-style drumkit in it and the words "Thunder Dome" written in the classic Rush font on the double-bass drums.
Archer says "Wow, amazing, you can play 'YYZ'", to which Krieger replies "First of all, it's YY-zed. And second of all, no I can't get it, it's impossible."
This marks the third such Rush reference on the series. Back in January, a van appeared in the show with a Hemispheres-style painted motif. Last April, another van appeared in a great Exit...Stage Left motif.
