    • Paul: I understand why the big wheel keeps on turning but why, and this is the tricky part, why would the proud Mary keep on burning? This is a reference to Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 rock song Proud Mary. Paul's question makes reference to the part of the lyrics that say: "Big wheels keep on turnin', Proud Mary keeps on burnin'"

    • Paul: Why do you say "Goodbye", because I say "Hello"?. Hello Hello. This is a reference to The Beatles' 1967 english rock song Hello Goodbye. Paul's question makes reference to the part of the lyrics that say: "You say goodbye and I say hello. Hello, hello."

    • Paul: You know what puzzles me? If you are going to shoot the Sheriff, why not take out the Deputy? Because the Deputy saw the whole thing, so you get them both.

    • Paul: Also, I've always wanted to know, do you really think that "Bad bad Leroy Brown" was the baddest man in the entire Chicago metropolitan area? Because that's a huge statement to make.

Paul's question makes reference to the part of the lyrics that say: "And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown, the baddest man in the whole damn town."

    • Paul: Here's a question for you, I've always wondered, why would a person drive the Chevy to the levee if they know full well that the levee was dry?
