    • Dorothy: It's different for kids these days; they have Barbara Walters to look up to.

      This is a reference to the slight speech impediment that hugely popular television newswoman Barbara Walters overcame (but not without getting made fun of a lot for it). This problem caused Walters to pronounce her "R's" like "W's," which is what Dorothy does at the end of the scene, when she tries to say "Rhode Island."
