    Allusions (1)

    • Harry: Being a judge means never having to say you're sorry. This is an allusion to an often quoted (and parodied) line from the 1970 film "Love Story", starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal. The line "Love means never having to say you're sorry." appears twice in the film. Once toward the middle when MacGraw's character Jennifer Cavilleri says it, and again as the last line in the film, repeated by O'Neal's character Oliver Barrett IV as a tribute to Jennifer.
