* WrongfullyAttributed: An in-universe half-example, there's a scene where Andrew's friend Jesse mentions ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'' and attributes it to Aldous [[TheCosbyShow Huxtable]] rather than Huxley.

''GardenState'' was well received, and is considered a major success for ''{{Scrubs}}'' actor Zach Braff, as it was his feature film debut as a director. Lacking the publicity machine of most mainstream Hollywood films, it generated a devoted fan base from people who read and responded to Braff's blog on the film's official site. Fans drove hours to see the film and saw it repeatedly in theaters. The film also spawned a popular soundtrack for which Braff, who picked the music himself, won a Grammy award.

'''''Garden State''''' is a 2004 film written, directed by and starring Zach Braff, with NataliePortman, Creator/PeterSarsgaard and co-starring Sir Creator/IanHolm. The film centers on Andrew Largeman (Braff), a 26-year-old actor/waiter who has been living in a catatonic emotional state. Since he was ten, he has been kept on at least one form of the drug lithium. After receiving a phone call from his dad, with whom he has not spoken in a long time, Andrew returns to his hometown in New Jersey upon finding out his paraplegic mother drowned in the bath. Visiting the place where he grew up, he soon meets Sam (Portman), the girl that brings him out of his shell. The title alludes both to the nickname for New Jersey and to lines from Andrew Marvell's poem "The Garden" ("Such was that happy garden-state,/ While man there walked without a mate").

* FollowTheLeader: It spawned a lot of terrible imitators, so now when you describe it, it sounds awful. One of the reasons for its severe case of SeinfeldIsUnfunny.

* RuleOfFunny: Large's argument with the customer at the restaurant that he works at probably wouldn't come up in RealLife. Vietnamese restaurants are actually far more likely to serve bread than most other Asian restaurants--Vietnam was a protectorate of France for over a century, so its cuisine has a very strong French slant, and baguettes are frequently eaten there.

* NerdsSpeakKlingon:Mark is displeased to see that his [[ParentWithNewParamour mother has a new boyfriend]], Tim. It doesn’t help that he wears knight armour and speaks Klingon. The best part is that Tim was played by Creator/JimParsons, a.k.a. [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Sheldon]].
-->'''Mark's Mom''': Don't be shy, Tim, tell them what you said to me last night.\\
'''Tim''': No...\\
'''Mark''': Tell us what you said to her last night!\\
'''Tim''': (''Speaks Klingon'')\\
'''Mark''': You have got to be kidding me.\\
'''Mark's Mom''': It means "[[TooMuchInformation I like to mate after battle.]]"\\
'''Tim''': That isn't what I said.\\
'''Mark's Mom''': Yeah...\\
'''Tim''': NO, that isn't the one I said! This one means "Kill Kirk".... and also, "hallelujah", depending on the context...
