  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Title:

      Referencing the Wayne's World character Garth who was created as a SNL sketch in 1988. Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar are metalheads who performed a cable public access show from Wayne's basement. They would introduces themselves at the beginning of each show by saying "Party on, Wayne" and "Party on, Garth."

    • Chris' Girlfriend: What do you want, Top Gun?
      Referencing the 1986 movie Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise as Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell and Anthony Edwards as RIO Nick "Goose" Bradshaw. They train with other top pilots at the Navy's Fighter Weapons School as part of the Top Gun program. Tom Cruise's character wears shades, just like Garth does.

    • Sam: Just wish it wasn't like the damn tape from The Ring.

      Referencing the 2002 horror movie based on the 1998 Japanese horror movie Ring. The movie features a black-haired ghost white-skinned, Samara, who comes to kill people seven days after they've seen a particular video tape.

    • Garth: Come with me if you want to live!

      Referencing James Cameron's Terminator franchise. The line has been spoken, by various characters, in all three movies, as well as The Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series.

    • Dean: All right, well if it wasn't Bobby, then what Jedi'd that sword into my hand?
      Referencing the Star Wars series and the Jedi Knights. The Jedi Knights are the "good" protectors of the galaxy, capable of tapping into the mystic Force to gain a variety of powers such as mind control and telekinesis. They avoid strong emotion, which can lead them to the Dark Side, the "evil" side of the Force. The Jedi and the Force are first mentioned in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977).

    • Dean: Instant Swayze, right?
      Referencing the 1990 film, Ghost, starring starring Patrick Swayze as a ghost who is able to move objects when angry or otherwise feeling strong emotion. Dean has used "Swayze" as a verb to describe ghosts moving objects before, starting in "In My Time of Dying".
