      • Named Newcomers in this Episode:

        Ralph Emerson is a reference to Ralph Waldo Emerson, a famous author and poet.

        Alex Bell is a reference to Alexander Graham Bell, a Scottish-born scientist and inventor, best known for inventing the telephone (though there is some controversy on the matter). The decibel (and its larger version, the bel) are named after this man.

        Johnny Appleseed (the guy at the dating service) is a reference to an American orchardist and Christian missionary whose real name was John Chapman. Chapman is called by this name because he planted apple trees in large parts of Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio.

        Clara Bow was a silent movie star and one of Hollywood's first film sex symbols.

        Ted Healy is almost certainly a reference to the American vaudeville performer and actor whose real name was Clarence Earnest Lee Nash. Though he did have a successful career of his own, he's primarily remembered as the original employer of the Three Stooges.

        Daniel Webster is most probably a reference to the United States politician of the same name, who served as Secretary of State under Presidents William Harrison and John Tyler.

        The name of Marvin Gardens (spelling taken from DVD subtitles) is likely taken from the same-named space on the board in the game Monopoly. In turn, that is a misspelling of a place, Marven Gardens, which is a place two miles south of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

        Emma Bovary is the name of a fictional character from the book Madame Bovary. The character, a doctor's wife, has several adulterous affairs, which spurred several attacks for obscenity back when it was originally published, in the last few months of 1856.
