The three books that Greg buys for Jimmy are not real.
Jimmy: Alright, man, well, I'll look through these later.
Greg: No, don't just look through them, Jimmy. Read them. People in the movie business live and breathe this stuff, okay? They study movies. They dissect scripts scene by scene. They read books.
Jimmy: I thought the whole point of movies is so people don't have to read.
Christine: He was even reading while we were making love.
Jimmy: You could tell I was reading?
Christine: You didn't think I'd feel a book on my back?
Jimmy: It's like, once I started one book, I couldn't put it down 'till I finished it. And then I couldn't wait to just get my hands on another one.
Christine: And that means a lot coming from Jimmy. I mean, the only thing he ever did in the library was me.
Greg: I am going to call. I just want to make sure you're ready first.
Jimmy: What are these?
Greg: They're books, Jimmy. They're the things you use to prop up your television when you watch Tom and Jerry.
Jimmy: (reading titles) How to Give Your Story Structure... How to Pitch a Movie... How to Get a Mortgage with no Money Down.
Greg: I'm not sure how that one got in there, but I'd read it anyway.
Greg: Kim, it's not like I haven't helped him, okay. I gave him a place to live. I helped feed him. I helped get him that job at the studio. That's all I ever do is give. I give, I give, I give. When homeless people approach me on the street, I say, "I'm sorry, but I've already given it to Jimmy." And they usually know who I'm talking about.
Jimmy: I'm taking this seriously.
Greg: Yeah? Is that why you wrote it down on a napkin?
Kim: Well, the Gettysburg Address was written on the back of an envelope.
Greg: Yeah, but Lincoln didn't drool mustard all over it.
Jimmy's movie idea is similar in some respects to the real-life 1979 film Parts: The Clonus Horror.
