    • Eric tells Alex that her 'Italian Stallion' is here.

      Italian Stallion was the nickname given to Sylvester Stallone during his brief (pre-fame) stint as a porn actor.

    • Joey says that one of the seniors might not understand Zach when he says to Beyonce it up.

      Beyonce is a massively popular recording artist who has had a long string of hits from back in her Destiny's Child days to her solo career. She is known for her flamboyant clothes and energetic stage performances.

    • Zach says that he directed the Beth Isreal Temple's production of Shalom Shalom Birdie. This is a play on the title Bye Bye Birdie.

      Bye Bye Birdie is about a rock star who is joining the army soon, so plans are being made for his farewell appearance and for him to kiss his biggest fan. It has been a play and movie for both TV and the big screen.

    • Zach slaps the blood thinners out of the old lady's hand, saying that he won't have drugs on his set because 'Thats how we lost Belushi!'

    • One of the letters Alex wrote was to LeBron James because he won a play off and then 'acted like that'.

      LeBron James has set numerous 'youngest player to' records and helped lead his team the Cleveland Cavaliers to numerous victories. He has signed massive multi-million dollar contracts with Nike and other products. As his fame has grown, so has his ego. He is well known for his star trips and ego, though some debate that with his skills his attitude is well earned.

    • The senior musical is The Pirates of Penzance, and one of the numbers they butcher is Modern Major General.

      The Pirates of Penzance is a long running and well loved Gilbert and Sullivan musical, and one of its most well known songs is Modern Major General.

    • Alex mentioned her Party of Five DVDs in the process of her and her husband splitting their things.
