  • Trivia

    • Jeff and Mallory went to a Truffaut movie. François Truffaut was a French filmmaker of 25 years. The episode doesn't state the exact movie, but the implication was that the movie was in French, and likely without subtitles. In French Lessons, we learned that Jeff speaks fluent French, while Mallory struggles with French I. Nonetheless, Mallory loved the movie.
