Main article: Krill.
While Captain Mercer and Gordon Malloy are studying the Anhkana within the Krill Church after hours, they come across a page depicting Avis and explaining his role in the Krill Religion as their main deity.
- When Malloy first hears the name "Avis", he immediately recalls a 21st century car rental company by the same name and keeps trying to reference that fact, such as quoting the company's tag line "We try harder" as a prayer before a meal.
- When the Krill children ask why humans don't worship Avis, Malloy replies that humans have their own god named Hertz, which was a rival car rental company at the same time period.
- Since the episode Krill aired, creator Seth MacFarlane has used the name outside of the show in jokes. When Hertz announced that it would withdraw its car rental company program with the National Rifle Association, MacFarlane responded, "In the name of Avis, well done".
