The song that the young woman starts to sing throughout this episode (and which is sung in Spanish by a mariachi band over the closing credits) is "NYC" from the musical Annie. That the young woman is getting off a vintage Trailways bus the first time she starts to sing it is a parody of the section of "NYC" in which a character just named "Star-to-Be" sings, "NYC/Just got here this morning/Three bucks/Two bags/One me" - only instead of being an aspiring actress, the woman in this episode is an aspiring prostitute.

You getting mugged just proves what I said to you on the phone. New York is a selfish, filth monster and it eventually gets all of us. It's Ghostbusters II all over again!
No, me getting mugged is New York doing what she does best... calling a great man to action. It's the original Ghostbusters all over again!
