    • Shawn: Feels like a slap in the face. Not a Rhett Butler slap, Ike Turner slap.

      Referencing first Rhett Butler, the major male character in the book Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell and the movie by the same name. The second references Ike Turner, the late ex-husband of rock singer Tina Turner. While the slapping going on in the first case was indeed mere slaps, in the second case the "slaps" were actual severe beatings thus emphasizing Shawn's scale of feeling mocked.
