  • Allusions

    • During the flashback of things that Virginia was wrong about, she says that the "cute little black boy on TV" stopped acting because he got rich from writing a dictionary.

      This is a reference to the show Webster which stars a character named Webster, played by Emmanuel Lewis, mixed up with a reference to the Merriam-Webster dictionary written by Noah Webster—who is obviously completely unrelated to the television character.
