    Allusions (2)

    • Loudspeaker: Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard... The Stooges movie Joan and Luke are watching in flashback is Men in Black (1934). One of their "classic" films, it was the only one of their shorts nominated for an Oscar, and the "Howard Fine Howard" doctor gag pops up as an in-joke in numerous TV shows and movies such as The Pretender.

    • Kevin: Fast times at Arcadia High...
      Referencing the 1982 teen comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High with Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The movie is a teen comedy where the main characters are high schools students concerned about sex.
