Allusions[edit | edit source]
- The title of this episode is taken from the Robert Palmer song "Addicted to Love", which appeared as the third track on his 1986 album Riptide. It has since become known as his trademark song. The music video for the song has become very popular and is considered an iconic staple of the 1980s, owing largely to Palmer's all-female back-up band in the video, who gyrate seductively while maintaining expressionles, robotic faces.
- To prove her identity to Josh, Sally Malik mentions that his favorite movie is Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, but he tells people that it is Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan to save face.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Aidan Waite: At the end of the day, all any of us wants is to feel good. And whether it's a long wet kiss on a dark night or a needle in the arm, it'll gnaw at you until you give in. Until you let yourself feel good again. And there is nothing else in the world that feels better than giving in to your inner monster.
- Mother: Your weakness has just banished us back to the shadows.
- Josh Levinson: Excuse me, you're using this poor woman's body to have sex...
- Sally Malik: ...to have sex with her super hot boyfriend who she already wants to have sex with. You know you're an epic buzzkill, right?
