Driven to Suicide: Early in the short, right after John gets a phone call informing him he's been kicked off the student council, he wanders despondent into the next room and Tom supplies a gunshot sound.
Epic Fail: Crow shows how bad John is at doing homework.
Crow: (as Mary, exasperated) John, this is geography!
As the movie just drags itself to the end, showing off another pool party with the Batgirls, Tom just loses it:
Mike loses it a bit earlier.
Mike: What about the hearing aid? Am I crazy? WASN'T THAT THE ENTIRE PLOT?!
Serious Business: All of the host segments were based on the Cheating short (except for a brief reference to the drugged soup scene), featuring overly dramatic responses to Crow plagiarizing Gypsy's essay on the short film.
Pass the Popcorn: Mike leaves the theater in the opening scene to get snacks, as if he were watching a movie rather than being tortured. The Bots question if this sort of thing is allowed.
Vapor Wear: Played with. The black and white print makes one girl's dress the same tone as her skin except for a stripe around the chest, leading Crow to observe bemusedly that she's wearing "a gownless evening strap".
Where Are They Now: Servo identifies one of the thugs in the opening scene as a thirty-years older Johnny from the short.
