  • Allusions

    • Megan Wheeler: Yeah, carpe diem, "seize the day"?
      Danielle McCaskin: You saw the banner in my classroom?
      Megan Wheeler: No, I saw the movie, Danielle. The teacher used it to inspire his students to read poetry, not have sex with him.
      This is a reference to the 1989 Peter Weir film, Dead Poets Society, starring Robin Williams and Robert Sean Leonard. The story surrounded an English teacher at a private school who used innovation to inspire his students to immerse themselves in literature.

    • Mike Logan: He stitches cops when they don't want to look like Scarface.
      Referencing Al Capone, who gained the nickname "Scarface" after Frank Gallucio slashed the mobster's face with a switchblade when he made a move on Gallucio's sister. The gangster has been immortalized in a number of movies, including the 1932 Howard Hawks film Scarface.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of cases like Mary Kay LeTourneau and Debra Lafave. Both women were grown adults that engaged in love affairs with their students.
