The high school dance is the backbone of nearly every teen rom-com. Since RJ Berger is the cumulative tele-version of that genre, it isn't hard to spot a bunch of teen movie references in this week's episode.
Either the producers and writers are cleverly collaging every great high school flick (so meta!), or they're banking on a younger generation who has no recollection of American Pie, Mean Girls, Whatever It Takes and the list goes on. Could it be both?
Any ways, see how many nostalgic nods you can find in this episode. Here's some clips for starters...
RJ decides to take lifelong best friend, Lily, to the winter formal. But...
OH NO! Who's he going to choose???
Phew! Thanks school bus for making that decision for him.
