    Allusions (3)

    • House: My ringtone for you is Dancing Queen, by ABBA. Referencing the Swedish pop musical group, and their song Dancing Queen. The group is most associated to 70s disco.

    • Dr. Wilson: So back, when you were devising this fantasy, did you tell your father "Dad, I refuse to recognize your existence because I have chosen James Bond as my dad." James Bond, also known as 007, is a fictional agent of the British Secret Service. He was created by novelist Ian Fleming in 1952 and became world-famous through films, novels, comics and video games. The actor best known for portraying him in the movies is arguably Scottish actor Sean Connery.

    • Dr. Wilson: Good heavens we haven't missed it. It's like the end of A Christmas Carol. Referencing the end of Charles Dickens' 1843 novel, immortalized on stage and screen, which tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, who learns the true meaning of Christmas after being visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. Wilson's line refers to the end when Scrooge realizes he hasn't missed Christmas Day, despite his night of traveling with the Ghosts.
