    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • (After Milly intimidates everyone into not reporting her cutting line.)
        Michelle: And note that the group successfully avoided being wished into the cornfield.
        Milly: Why does everyone make that same cornfield reference about me?
        Michelle (and everyone) is referencing "It's a Good Life" from the original Twilight Zone. Written by Rod Serling, based on a 1953 short story by Jerome Bixby, the episode details the horrific life of a small Ohio town under the despotic rule of a 10-year-old boy named Anthony. He controls everything and everyone with his mind, and if anyone displeases him they are "wished to the cornfield" so that every day is a good day.
