The code seen in the icon makes reference to the iconic speech, with functions named ‘heresToTheCrazyOnes’ and ‘villify(troubleMaker: NSObject)’. The code also generates collections of ‘misfits’, ‘rebels’ and ‘troublemakers’.

OS X icons often include references to this speech, with both the Notes and TextEdit apps on Mavericks including the speech in a scrawled form in their icons.
