* A ''{{Garfield}}'' strip shows Jon telling Vet Liz that because animal medicine is a difficult field, she must "have a great mind for a woman." She, offended, responds, "I have a great mind for a MAN." He attempts to flirt by telling her she has "a great body for a man too."

However, he does so by criticizing Yuuri for winning without using any quads (which Yuuri was lacking in at the time) and giving unwanted advice after Yuuri's hard-earned victory. Yuuri ends up so angry that he walks away so he wouldn't make a scene.
