  • Bryce: I appreciate what you're doing, but I don't want you to see me like this. Nicole: Is this about your pride? Bryce: A little bit, yeah. Nicole: Hello, it's me. You've glued pennies to the wall with my lunatic mother. I think we've both seen behind the curtain.

Allusions (1)

  • Nicole: Okay, suddenly she's a mogwai. Referencing the 1984 Warner Bros. movie Gremlins. Mogwai are small furry creatures, but there are three rules to follow: keep them out of the light, don't feed them after midnight (hence Nicole's concern), and don't get them wet. Naturally, all three rules are broken and the mogwai become vicious gremlins that run amuck.
