The title of the episode is the name of a book by Joseph Heller. The book was also seen in the parachutist's pack. Heller initially uses "Catch-22" to describe a no-win situation. A bomber pilot is told he can only avoid flying more missions by pleading insanity, but attempting to preserve his own life by pleading insanity is proof of sanity, meaning he must continue to fly missions. "That's Catch 22." Later in the novel, "Catch 22" is used by people in power any time they need to justify their actions.
