      • Dr. Susan Stewart: Well, why should Tom do anything Casey says after your little Mrs. Robinson act?

        This is an allusion to the 1967 film The Graduate staring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft.

        As my stomach turns is an anagram of the show's title. As the Stomach Turns was also the title of a sketch on CBS' The Carol Burnett Show.
