In one scene, playing on a TV in the background is Billy Crystal dressed as a turkey and Robert De Niro as a pilgrim. The clip is from a post-9/11 commercial to boost New York tourism directed by Barry Levinson. In the ad, the two squabble about their costumes as participants on a Macy's Thanksgiving parade float. Crystal tries to persuade De Niro to trade outfits with him, at one point being reduced to parodying the latter actor's famous line from Taxi Driver (1976): "Are you gobbling at me? Are you gobbling at me?"
