    • National Lampoon's Animal House Jay: . . . as for Silent Bob, well he became Senator Robert Blutarsky. This is an allusion to National Lampoon's Animal House (1978). At the end of the movie we find out that John Belushi's character Bluto Blutarsky becomes senator.

    • Deep Blue Sea Visual: Samuel L. Jackson is eaten by a shark. This scene is a parody of the same scene from the 1999 movie Deep Blue Sea.

    • The Flintstones/Shindler's List Randal: Wanna watch a movie? Flintstones List. This is an obvious parody of the famous cartoon series The Flintstones (1960) and the Oscar winning film Schindler's List (1993).

    • Happy Days Randal: Boy Happy Days sure had a lot of great moments. This line and several references after it of course refer to the classic sitcom Happy Days.

    • The Real World Dante: But you got us thrown out . . . from The Real World! The parody itself is a reference to the second season of The Real World.
