      • "Sonny Tufts?":
        Tufts was a B-movie actor who made a few forgettable films during the 1940s, but became better known later for his rowdy personal life. His frequent displays of public drunkenness were always outrageous and made great tabloid fodder. By the 1960s, the phrase "Sonny Tufts" was shorthand for an untalented drunken actor He had become a punchline; the mere mention of his name by a comedian guaranteed a laugh.

      • And Leave the Drive-In to Us:
        The title of this episode is a spoof on the Greyhound Bus Company's slogan, "Call Greyhound, and Leave the driving to us"
