    Allusions (3)

    • The electronics store Penhall wanted to go to, "Crazy Freddy's" is a parody of "Crazy Eddie's," a successful, but corrupt northeastern electronics store in the 70s and 80s. The tv and radio ads were extremely memorable and popular and there has been several attempts to revive the brand name.

    • Penhall: There's something weird, and it don't look good.
      Penhall's statement and the three men, subsequently arriving from the Enviromental Protection Agency (EPA) are both references to the 1984 movie Ghostbusters. Penhall says the first line of the theme song by Ray Parker, Jr. Ghostbusters II had also been released the summer of 1989.

    • Doug Penhall's experience in his truck at the crossroads, as well as his fascination with mashed potatoes, is a direct reference to the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
