A lot of you might already know this, but for those of you who don't who are curious about the significance of the name at the end of the episode, read below.

Roy G. Biv was the name of a mnemonic device in the Paranoia RPG put out by West End Games in the 1980s (now available through Mongoose Publishing). It was used to remember the order of colors in the security spectrum in the game which also matched the order of colors in the chromatic scales. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. Armed with the fact that this is all the colors of the rainbow, I don't think I need to spell out who Roy G. Biv is.
