Along w/ muscian Dave Brubeck, Michu Meszaros, one of if not the shortest man in the world standing at only 2ft 9in & finally Minnesota Twins shortstop Roy Smalley

When its Donna's turn she gets Tom Cruise so her clues are actress Katie Holmes, Tom's 1983 comedy Risky Business, the 1986 drama/action film Top Gun, the 1996 comedy/drama Jerry Maguire & 1988's Oscar winning Best Director/Best Actor/Best Picture drama Rain Man

She also mentions his crazy couch jumping incident in 2005 on the Oprah Winfrey Show when Tom seemed way to excited talking about his relationship with Katie Holmes.

Oddly enough Kendra's answer to all of Donna's clues was the TV show, My Name is Earl (2005-2009)

Cleveland Junior's school president poster is in the same style as a poster created for the Obama campaign

Also, his slogan 'What can brown do for you' is a former commercial slogan for the delivery company UPS


Rallo walks over to Junior's desk and hangs his head. This is a direct reference to an award winning photo of President John F. Kennedy taken in the Oval Office in 1961.


The Wachowski brothers are mentioned in this episode along with their 1999 action film The Matrix.

The man asks Andy about his vagina and he answers, no that's my brother.

The man at the bar who Yvette stabs in the hand sings the 1973 song Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around the Old Oak Tree sung by Tony Orlando & Dawn
