* GeniusBonus: The film/stage musical ''Film/HedwigAndTheAngryInch'' plays a prominent role in the show, with an episode revolving around Eric and Otis planning to go and to see it together, later leading to them falling out. At the dance several episodes later, Otis has the band play a song called "The Origin of Love" - it's never mentioned, but this is a song from ''Hedwig'', in fact one of the most important songs in the film, making the gesture much more significant if the viewer is aware of this.
