      • Jon Stewart: On to page 2 of the white celebrity struggling with racist scandal playbook, sitting down with either Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. Oh he's going with Sharpton, probably the hipper choice.

        (video clip)
        [Don Imus I can't get any place with you people, but I can get some place with Jesus.
        Al Sharpton: Who is you people Mr. Imus?
        Don Imus: You and this woman I'm talking to.
        Al Sharpton: That's Congresswoman Kilpatrick.
        Don Imus: Aw don't try to hang out on me, that's jive.]

        Jon Stewart: That's jive, your talking to Al Sharpton, not Rerun.

      • The closing image in the "Oliver's Travels" segment where John Oliver is tied down and near tiny people, as well as the name of the segment itself, are references to Jonathan Swift's satiric novel "Gulliver's Travels". The opening segment refers to the iconic scene in which Gulliver awakens to find himself tied down by the Lilliputians.
