    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Dave Chappelle claimed to have participated in the Scared Straight program. He said he didn't take it too seriously because he knew the inmates weren't allowed to touch them...until one of them did. A burly prisoner picked Dave up by the shirt and promised him if he ever ended up in prison with him, Dave would be "his woman". This threat worked and Dave changed his ways!

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Scared Straight
        Scared Straight was actually a documentary released in 1978 where troubled kids were sent to visit prisons where the inmates would terrify them, the hope being the kids would try to avoid a life of crime by seeing where it led.

      • Eulogio demanding to be locked in a room with Del's nephew and not let out no matter how much he screams or begs, only to change his mind immediately after entering the room, is taken directly from the Mel Brooks movie Young Frankenstein.
