    • Alice: (leaving a message for Tasha) I need to talk to you because I'm being asked to be on Crossfire-Ball or, I don't know, whatever, and I posted that video of that guy, Brewer. This is a reference to the CNN political/current events debate show Crossfire, which ran from 1982 to 2005. The show presented both liberal and conservative views and had the hosts debate both sides of various issues.

    • Shane: Do me a favor, call her. Get her over here, then we can all bring sexy back together. This is an allusion to the Grammy Award winning track SexyBack (released in 2006) by Justin Timberlake.

    • Title: Lookin' at You, Kid The title is a well-known quote said by the character of Rick Blaine (played by Humphrey Bogart) in the classic 1942 movie Casablanca. The full quote would be "Here's looking at you, kid."
