    Allusions (3)

    • The Reference: Scare Tactics
      Andy comes out dressed as a bear in an attempt to scare the assistants. This is a spoof on the show "Scare Tactics", a show in which average people are thrown into a situation and then actors set up the people to believe that something really really scary is happening. At the end of the prank, the actor asks, "Are you scared?" (as Andy was trying to say) and that's when the prank is revealed.

    • The Reference: Lie Dectector Test
      The lie detector test could be a passing reference to any talk show where they do the lie detector tests to see if a guest is being faithful to their loved one, etc. It also could be a reference to "Meet My Folks" where they sometimes use lie dectectors. But, it is also likely Andy was spoofing a scene from the 2000 movie, "Meet the Parents".

    • The Reference: Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica
      A possible reference to the show "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica." The newlywed couple, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, went on a camping trip in one episode.
