    • Cyrano De Bergerac:

      Cartman's coaching Jimmy through his date at the Italian restaurant is a literary device first seen in the balcony scene in "Cyrano De Bergerac," where Cyrano puts words in the mouth of the handsome but dim Christian as he woos Roxanne.

      This device was also seen in the eponymous 1987 Steve Martin film Roxanne, as well as an episode of "Will and Grace," where Will uses a headset to coach Jack and numerous other sitcoms.
