  • Allusions

    • When Jack was role playing as Tracy's father, he uttered the line: "Lady, just because I'm an ignorant black man, and you paid me a nickel to bust up your chifferobe..." This is a direct allusion to Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. In the story, a black man (Tom Robinson) was charged with raping a white girl (Mayella Ewell). Before the incident, Mayella had offered to pay Tom a nickel to bust up a chifferobe of hers.
