There is a scene about the middle of the movie in which Rabbi Jake brings in a gospel choir to liven his service. As he urges the congregation to join in he shouts "come on, all the young Jews!" He is playing with a cherished, "mondegreen" - an often misused, misheard lyric - of David Bowie's and the Mott Hoople's "All the Young Dudes". The "misheard" words were sung regularly at fraternity and college parties throughout the '70s.
