** Also, when David first sees Cheryl Ann and immediately becomes attracted to her, he asks if she knows what time it is (she tells him), and then he quotes a line from Creator/WoodyAllen's ''Everything You've Always Wanted To Know About Sex (But Were Afraid To Ask)'' ("Before you know it, TheRenaissance will be here and we'll all be busy painting"). [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure She doesn't get it]].
