    • Repeated references are made to the 1994 film The Shawshank Redemption, including the song "Cazonetta Sull'aria", an operetta which is played twice when the guys are discussing Butterman's institutionalization by the prison, and his subsequent freedom. In the film, Andy Dufresne is a prisoner who plays this song to remind fellow prisoners of a time when they were free. Butterman says that the money he got from the ticket is his way to Zihuatanejo - the city in Mexico where Andy planned to go if he ever got his freedom. Jeff also says "get busy living or get busy dying", a famous line from the movie.
