Trivia

While talking with Emily, Seth teases her about her grammar, in response to which she calls him "Strunk and White". Her comment is referring to "The Elements of Style," a writing guide published in 1920, originally written by Cornell professor William Strunk, Jr., and revised and expanded by E. B. White (of "Charlotte's Web" and "Stuart Little" fame) in 1959. In 2011, Time Magazine named the guide one of the 100 most influential books written in English since 1923. See more »
