One of the names on the guest list at Lana Barnes' ceremony is "Norma Jeane Baker", which is the real name of famous movie star Marilyn Monroe.
Lenni: Are you all right, sir?
Mr. Swarmworth: I'll be all right for the rest of my life. I was almost crushed to death at the feet of the great Lana Barnes!!
(Gaby finds Rob, gagged and bound, in the dressing room)
Gaby: I knew it! (Unties Rob)
Rob: Hurry, we've got to stop her. She's crazy! Boy is she strong!!
Tina: (Reads the new speech Ghostwriter found) "Ladies and gentlemen, I deserve this award. I worked hard. No actress could have done what I did."
Gaby: I've never heard Lana talk like that! She sounds so angry.
Tina: Lana writes the way she feels. Where's the friendliness?
Gaby: Where's the Pookies?
Tina: Where's the phone?
Janine: (Crying) My mother, the great movie actress, is too busy writing her speech to speak to me, her own daughter. It's always the same. No time for Janine.
Tina: Don't go, Janine. Lana loves you.
Lana: I have wrestled with this speech so many times but somehow, now it seems inappropriate. I think it's time my fans got a peek at the real Lana Barnes. So tonight, I'm ditching my speech. Your friendship, your love, has given me the courage to speak to you from my heart.
Lana: Oh Tina, you're a peppermint lifesaver!
Alex: Were you knocked out?
Lana: Like a punch drunk fighter!
Rob: Now we can keep an eye on all our suspects.
Gaby: And if they try to spoil Lana's big night, they're going to have to deal with the Ghostwriter team!! Ki-ya!!! (Karate kicks)
