In "Into Harmony's Way", Mort said that he used to be a huge record dealer in the music industry, and that he also managed the band "Earth, Wind, & Fire". However, when they first started out, their band was called "Earth, Wind, Fire, & Pollen" and Mort had horrible allergies with pollen, so he had to make some changes to the band, renaming them the famous name they have now. During the scene, where Mort was having allergic reactions to the band, Earth, Wind, Fire, & Pollen sang the song "September" and Mort said "September is the worst month for allergies." Somewhere else down the road, Earth, Wind, & Fire eventually found a new band manager and got rid of Mort. Mort described this experience as "Getting Earth, Wind, & Fired".
