  • Allusions

    • Little Carmine's speech, "The fundamental question is, 'Will I be as effective as a boss like my dad was?' And I will be. Even more so. But until I am, it's gonna be hard to verify that I think I'll be more effective," is purposefully similar to comments made by George W. Bush prior to becoming president.
