* {{Homage}} / LawyerFriendlyCameo: One of Daphne's favorite movies is ''Deafenstein'', an incredibly cheesy ''{{Frankenstein}}'' adaptation performed entirely in ASL. It's a takeoff of the RealLife film ''Film/{{Deafula}}'', a 1975 version of ''{{Dracula}}'' done in ASL, with a similar reputation.
