Allusions (5)

  • When the newscaster announces Steven Spielberg's reaction to the discrimination, he introduces him as "...director of such films as Always and 1941". It is obviously meant as a joke to only reference these relatively unsuccessful films in light of Spielberg's many well-known blockbusters, such as Jaws, E.T., or Jurassic Park.

  • Jaws: When Steven Spielberg was shown, a poster in the background is seen called Grill. This is a parody of Jaws.

  • 69: 69 is a slang term for a sexual position, and as such is a subtle reference joke being the Troop number of a Scoutmaster suspected of having sex with his Scouts.

  • Photoshop: The computer program Timmy uses is called "PhotoWiz," possibly a spoof of "Photoshop." With apologies to Adobe Systems.

  • They Live/Fight Sequence: The fight between Jimmy and Timmy is a direct copy of the fight between "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Keith David in John Carpenter's 1988 film They Live, down to Jimmy saying "You dirty mother(beep)!"
