    • The freaks end up going to Millie's cousin to get better fake ID's than the ones provided by Howie Gelfand. Millie's cousin tells Daniel he can come in for his ID first, saying "McMurphy, you come in first." Daniel is wearing a knit skullcap, so calling him McMurphy is a reference to character Randall McMurphy, played by Jack Nicholson, in the Academy Award winning 1975 film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Nicholson spent much of the movie wearing a knit cap like Daniel wore in the episode.
