Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
When Sam is taking care of the small plants, he refers to one of them as "Ridley", while another one is labeled as "Kathryn", a likely reference to Ridley Scott and Kathryn Bigelow, who also directed science-fiction movies.
You look like a radioactive tampon... like a banana with a yeast infection.
The final time Sam tries to log on to the computer (before Gerty does it for him), the "Access Denied" voice chimes in before he is finished typing in the password.
The letters in the credits at the beginning of the movie, are sitting parallel to the surfaces that are shown and are also casting shadows/reflections on these surfaces.
