LITERARY AND OTHER REFERENCES
  • The title is a parody of the legal term habeas corpus, "you shall have the body" (Latin). Habeas corpus, contrary to common belief, does not refer to the body of a victim but rather to the person in custody; a writ of habeas corpus demands that the person be presented in court to determine whether the authorities have proof enough to detain him or her.
  • For those unaware of musical cinema icons, "Ginger" is a reference to Ginger Rogers, best known as dance partner to Fred Astaire.
  • For those unaware of recent cinema icons, the "lift scene" from Dirty Dancing is demonstrated at the end of the film, during a dance set to "I've Had (The Time of My Life)".
  • NTSB stands for National Transportation Safety Board, which would be the agency responsible for investigating allegations of safety violations in civilian vehicles.
  • "Modesto Motors" is, for obvious reasons, a fictitious car manufacturer.
