Didja Notice?

 

Eric describes Kate as a runner. A runner is the most junior position of a film or television crew. Also known as a gofer. They perform odd jobs for whatever personnel needs help within the production.

 

When Charlie calls Kate a nobody, she objects that she is not a nobody and he responds, "Of course not. Your episode of Celebrity Squares just hasn't been broadcast yet, has it?" Celebrity Squares is a British game show featuring celebrities that aired 1975-1979, 1993-1997, and 2014-2015, based on the American game show Hollywood Squares which aired at intermittent intervals from 1966-2004.

 

Within the Nostalgia's memory play, Gurney is cast in a new sitcom called Second Time Around. This is, of course, a fictitious sitcom, actually named by one or more of the participants to clue them in that this is a fake reality happening for the second time. There was an unrelated American sitcom by this name in the 2004-2005 TV season.

 

Steel compares the current predicament suffered by he, Sapphire, and Gurney to a game of Snakes and Ladders. Snakes and Ladders is an ancient Indian board game, usually aimed at children and rooted in morality lessons. An American version of the game called Chutes and Ladders was originally produced by Milton Bradley, now part of Hasbro.
