Larry Charles stated the dream sequence where Jerry is gunned downed was inspired by Quinten Tarrantino. I'm not up to speed on his stuff, but it struck me as a spoof on The Godfather. Sonny and Jerry are gunned down by a multitude of gunshots. Then another gunman shoots them at point blank range. Kramer than gives the Vito "look what they've done to my boy" line, inserting cable before boy.

With the mention of The Godfather, I wonder will there be a Godfather reference counter.

The line is "look how they massacred my boy"...

It isn't much of a refrence to the Godfather because Jerry didn't fall like Sonny did...

He didn't fall like Sonny, but he was riddled with bulletts. Then another guy comes and shoots him point blank in the head, like what happened to Sonny.

I don't recall hearing Larry Charles mention that Tarantino influenced him on this episode. If he did, he probably misspoke. Reservois Dogs was the first movie Tarantino did that anybody would've noticed, and it didn't come out until a year after The Baby Shower.
