Until John pitched this comic and explained it to me, I had never seen any part of 16 candles. The scene we’re referencing in the comic seemed funny enough to me though, and he says it’s well know, so I went with it. I seriously had nothing to do with this comic though; it was all John. I didn’t even send him a script, which I even do for silent scripts so he remembers the title.
Funny story though, while looking up clips for this comic I made a discovery. Apparently Harry and the Hendersons is a real movie. I thought they just made it up for the 30 Rock episode with John Lithgow. I guess most people already knew that though.
