* {{Callback}}: Abed's story about creating a fictional version of himself in order to get through a situation he hadn't anticipated, only to suffer a crisis of identity upon realizing that the made-up version of himself had 'lived' more than him, mirrors Annie's experiences in "Mixology Certification". [[spoiler: Granted, unlike Annie's, Abed's crisis of identity involved pooping his pants.]]

** When Abed finds out about the [[spoiler: "authentic" ''Pulp Fiction'' briefcase]], he asks if he bought it from "Willy's 100% Authentic Cinema Treasures" on eBay, and Jeff says yes. Abed explains that "Willy exaggerates" and recalls having bought Indiana Jones' "real whip" from "Willy's", a product Willy puts out seventy of a year. Abed actually mentions buying that whip for the Indiana Jones marathon he ditched to take part in Annie's experiment in "Social Psychology".

* GeniusBonus / ViewersAreGeniuses: There are certain references that clue you in that the real movie that Abed is homaging is [[spoiler: ''My Dinner With Andre'']] long before he comes out and says so, but you'd need to have seen it in order to pick up on them. It's fair to say that not many people have, and even if you have, it can still fly over your head.
