Has anyone else ever commented upon the subtle parallels between this episode and the classic film? When Elaine and George first seen the mannequin, George calls it a "pod" and jokingly cautions Elaine, "don't fall asleep." Also, the whole plot with the health inspector coming down on Poppi (Sutherland's character was a health inspector in the re-make) seems a deliberate nod to the movie. Finally, during George's restaurant interview, when he refuses to eat the pie, one of the guys says: "If you're one of us, you'll take a bite." I've never heard of anyone else making this connection, but I think it is definitely there, however subtle.
