  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Two allusions in the conversation between Ryan and the Brittenum twins. First Ryan said "Shocker, they're talking". The Ryan comment was based on the fact that during Hollywood week they always had an opinion on something. Afterwards one of the twins said "and rich". What is odd about the comment is that the reason they were disqualified from the competition was that they were charged with theft. Wonder how they got rich?
