  • Allusions

    • Spartacus
      The scene where each of the faculty members stands up and announces "I am part of this" is a reference to the movie Spartacus. Specifically, the scene where a crowd of people is addressed and Spartacus is asked to stand up to identify himself but before he gets a chance, the others in the crowd stand up and announce "I am Spartacus" to protect him.
