    • Mrs. Starkey: Heeeeeere's Starkey!

      This is an allusion to the line "Here's Johnny!" by Jack Nicholson in his famous role as Jack Torrance in the movie adaptation to the novel "The Shining" by Stephen King, when he terrorizes his wife Wendy through a hole he hacked through a door with an axe. Except Mrs. Starkey is peering eerily out through a set of curtains instead.

    • Title: Just Brown and Servo A parody on the simple cooking instruction: "Just brown and serve"

    • The title is a play off the commonly used description "stiff as a board".

    • Title: Pride Goeth Before a Brawl A slight twisted allusion to the phrase "Pride goeth before the fall" Meaning if one is overconfident it is likely they will fail.
