    • Larry: You know something? I wanna phone a friend.

      This is a reference to one of the lifelines on the TV game show, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? In the show, contestants answered a series of multiple choice questions, each with an increasing value of prize money. The questions got harder the higher the value, and contestants were allowed three "hint" options, called lifelines. They could use a 50-50, which took away two incorrect answers; Ask the Audience, which polled the audience and hopefully the majority knew the correct answer; or Phone a Friend, which allowed the contestant to call one person from a previously selected list of acquaintances.
