    People's...
    When the [fake] psychiatrist made the point that, without them being actually patients in an asylum, so much of what's happened makes no sense, I laughed so hard because he's right. The bit about starting as a Spanish study group, for instance. Great job of the show poking fun at its own premise. Almost too good a job; the psychiatrist's reasoning was actually pretty darned sound!

    It was almost like it was meta or something. ;)

    Throughout the episode, it reminded me of the Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, issues 39-40 storyline, "Mask."

    But I'm pretty sure that it wasn't parodying that...

    "Potatoes?"

    "Get out! There's one every semester ..."

    "Car keys?"

    "Yes!"

    It wasn't potatoes. It was "Fries?"

    It's not a movie, but the final episode of M*A*S*H is as close a parallel I can draw from.

    If they were spoofing St. Elsewhere, they were way off.

    People, I answered this already. It's a nod to the BtVS episode "Normal Again".

    It has to be. :)

    That episode of Buffy was very similar to teh Star Trek: Deep Space 9 episode "Far Beyond the Stars".

    Fun episode. I'm surprised nobody mentioned 10,000 Flush celebration with Chevy. That had us rolling :)
