Behind the Scenes

Allusions and References

  • Deadwood: Deadwood is a HBO western drama which is set in Deadwood, South Dakota during the 1870s. The show's episodes take a chronological look at the lives of cowboys in the town. When J.D. says "Did you know Cowboys used to curse?", he refers to how vulgar the show is thanks to it being on premium cable.
J.D.: Yeah... I'm going to need you to go back in there and use some form of the word "die." Dead, dying, deadsies, deadwood. Your choice.
  • Colonel Sanders: Harland David Sanders, most well known as "Colonel Sanders", is the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, a chain of fast food restaurants owned by Pepsi. In 1935, Sanders was given the honorary title of "Kentucky Colonel" by the governor of Kentucky. From this point on he took on the role seriously, dressing like the archetypical southern gentleman. Although Sanders died in 1980, his likeness (particularly his moustache, beard and glasses) appears on the KFC logo to this day.
Dr. Kelso: I'm sorry, I don't know your name and you look like that Kentucky Fried Chicken guy.
