    • Title: Red Dawn:

      The title of this episode and many of its scenes are a parody of the 1984 film Red Dawn.

      Specific examples include the AARP troops parachuting into the town while Mr. Garrison lectures his class and sees them outside the window. Also many of the townspeople rounded up and held inside a prison camp, with Stan's dad talking to the boys through the fence and shouting "Avenge me!".
