So even if Columbus got lost and wasn't the first to discover America, he's still my hero. He was really brave to sail in such a tiny ship over a really big ocean. And because of him, we get Columbus Day off of school.

When Cate awakens Parker, who has fallen asleep watching Game 6 of the 1996 World Series with Hachi, the footage shown on the television is of then-Yankee catcher Joe Girardi running out his run-scoring triple in that game. Presumably it's late, and Parker and Hachi had been watching the game quite a while for Parker to have fallen asleep, but Girardi's triple came in the 3rd inning. It's also questionable whether Parker, who's depicted as an avid Yankee fan, would fall asleep during a World Series-clinching game.
