- Main article: Night of the Living Dead (film)
A disparate group of people find themselves trapped in a house surrounded by the living dead.
- "You know, this guy was the inspiration for Beaker on The Muppet Show."
- Beaker is a tall, thin muppet who first appeared in the second season of The Muppet Show. Mike is reminded of him by actor/producer Russell Streiner.
- "A brief Joe Cocker impression, there."
- Joe Cocker was a singer known for his shambling on-stage performances, which Mike compares to one of the zombie's movements.
- "The zombie Jiminy Glick!"'
- Jiminy Glick is a fictional film reviewer portrayed by comedian Martin Short. Glick is portrayed as obese, wearing a tight belt, like the zombie Mike is highlighting. In the colorized version of the film, the zombie's hair also resembles Glick's.
- "Folks, uh, there is a lot of movie left, so now might be a good time to go ahead and make yourself a Zombie."
- A Zombie is a type of cocktail. Mike's recipe does not follow the International Bartenders Association guidelines.
