    • The Breakfast Club

      There are multiple references to The Breakfast Club (1985):

      • Shawn wears a picture of Judd Nelson on his badge as his high school graduation photo.
      • Shawn re-enacts several dance steps and poses from the movie while on the rooftop with Abigail.
      • Shawn's delivery of the word "scholarship" mimics Judd Nelson's delivery
      • Shawn asks Howie, "When will you find time to tape Larry Lester's butt cheeks together?". In The Breakfast Club, Andrew Clark was in detention for beating and taping Larry Lester's buttocks together.
      • Refers to a scene in the film when Shawn replies to Gus, "Yeah, or we can meet back here and give each other makeovers to Karla DeVito's 'We Are Not Alone.' It's your choice."
      • Gus delivers a voice-over monologue at the end of the show styled after the letter the Breakfast Club members are required to write as part of their suspension. • The ending scene where Shawn is walking on the football field in a long trench coat mirrors the final scene from The Breakfast Club.
