Trivia: When David is cutting his hair, he is singing, "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo." This is a reference to the film, "Lawrence of Arabia." In Alien: Prometheus, David had a fondness for that particular movie and emulated Peter O'Toole, who played T.E. Lawrence. In the movie, Lawrence sang that song while riding on a camel in the desert.

More trivia for Alien: Covenant

Question: During the movie we learned that David felt some passion for Elizabeth for being kind to him before. So why use her body for his experiments after her death? Surely not to learn about human anatomy, which should be known to him already.

Answer: Regardless of his android passions, David was already experimenting with the bio-goo, and he deliberately used it to impregnate Dr. Elizabeth Shaw with a proto-face-hugger in "Prometheus." In "Covenant," we learn that David later killed Shaw and is experimenting with her body because her body tissues contain human-alien antibodies that are essential to David's work (which is creating a new generation of xenomorphs).
