    • Terms of Endearment/Family Feud/Magnum, P.I./Citizen Kane/Casablanca
      There are a bunch of movie and TV references in Archer's Terms of Enrampagement (itself a reference to Terms of Endearment, which contains themes of cancer and loss). Archer plays Family Feud with the Irish mobsters, complete with shouting, "Survey says..." and telling Lana she's in the isolation booth. The ending of his film is a parody of a famous Magnum, P.I. scene in which Tom Selleck kills an unarmed villain after asking him, "Did you see the sunrise this morning?" Alternate names suggested for the film include "Magnum, P.U.," "Citizen Dickbag" (Citizen Kane), and "Casa Blumpkin" (Casablanca).
