Will: Did you give his shawshank a redemption? Did you rock his jailhouse? Did you give him the cool hand luke? Three references to famous films with a prison setting or theme: The Shawshank Redemption from 1994 (based on a Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption), Jailhouse Rock, the 1957 film starring Elvis Presley as an ex-convict and Cool Hand Luke, the 1967 film starring Paul Newman as a mistreated convict with an unquenchable dignity.
Rosario: You two are like dumb and drunker. This is an obvious clever reference to the film Dumb & Dumber.
Rosario: Slow down, Gypsy Rose Lush This is a typical show reference and play on words. Gypsy Rose Lee was a famous burlesque striptease artist (as well as a lesser known actress and screenwriter). Rosario's comment refers both to Karen's propensity for seemingly taking her clothes off at the drop of a hat and her all-consuming passion for anything distilled.
Karen: I'll be in the observatory, watching Woody Allen get it on with his daughter-wife. Woody Allen is an American movie director who married Soon-Yi Allen, the adopted daughter of his ex-wife Mia Farrow.
