      • Cigarette Company Guy: Mr. Sherman, think of the children; if they don't have cigarettes, what will they do after they have sex?

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Donkey Kong
        When Franklin is driving to the airport, his hallucination of an ape throwing barrels at the car is from the Nintendo video game Donkey Kong.

      • The Hindenburg
        The name of the airline that Franklin and Eleanor end up flying on, Hindenburg Airlines "Oh, the Humanity!", is a reference to the German rigid air ship (blimp), The Hindenburg, which crashed at Lakehurst Naval Air Base, New Jersey on May 6, 1937. It caught fire and was destroyed within one minute, killing 35 of the 97 people on board, in addition to one fatality on the ground. The disaster was the subject of spectacular newsreel coverage, photographs, and Herbert Morrison's recorded radio eyewitness report from the landing field, who was quoting as saying, "Oh, the humanity!" over and over again.

      • The Three Stooges
        The scene at Franklin and Eleanor's wedding where Franklin is whooping and rolling on his side is a spoof of Curly from The Three Stooges.
