At the dance, Carter, as Zorro, says he learned to fence from "The Pirates of Penzance," by Sir William S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan Act 2, Scene 1. There is no fight scene in Act 2, Scene 1 of Pirates, the scene consists of a slow ballad sung by the female chorus.

When Sam is in Rhonda's house, she is looking through items in a red bowl and says, "Rhonda, you sure do have a knack for taking something simple and making it beautiful."
