    Allusions (2)

    • Mr. Roarke: Why don't you gentlemen dance? Stan: Well to tell you the truth Mr. Roarke, all I know is jitterbugging and that went out about 30 years ago, but I'm willing to give it a try. Allusion to the dance craze of the late 30's called the Jitterbug. A swing dance and favorite of New Yorkers. Cab Calloway's recording of "Call of the Jitterbug" in 1935 and the subsequent film "Cab Calloway's Jitterbug Party" made this dance craze a success for over 20 years.

    • Herman: (to his ex-wife who says he should act his age) Satchel Paige pitched when he was sixty! Bluebeard raped women when he was 70! Allusion to Baseball great Satchel Paige born in 1905 and began his career in the Negro League in 1927 and ended his pitching career playing for Kansas City Athletics in 1965.
