The Concordia research station is located on the Antarctic Plateau and operates year round.

1. Vladimir Lenin

Truly decorates Fanny’s pro-type kitchen with a lovely portrait, and the second half of the season kicks off with communism.

2. “Friends”

Boo’s mother might be the best character on the show.

3. “Pretty in Pink”

Technically Hubble referencing “Duckie and Molly” is a mixed metaphor since Duckie is the character’s name and Molly is the actresses’ name, but it worked…

4. “On Golden Pond”

A reference to illustrate the fact that Michelle’s BFF’s boy friend is really old.

5. Eisenhower

Like, really old.

6. President Polk

Super old.

7. The Marx Brothers

Horribly, disgustingly old.

8. Cleopatra

So old that a fourth of the night’s references exist just to remind everyone how decrepit he is.

9. Slumdog Millionaire

Apparently Boo’s brooms smell like they were cleaning said slums. I think Oprah said that’s when you know it’s time to replace them.

10. “Dance Moms”

Fanny is not a fan.

11. Andy Warhol

Boo got her fifteen minutes through a wonderful combination of auto-tunning and a horrible mace accident.

12. Katie Couric

“What is my life now? Watching Katie Couric get a colonoscopy over and over and over?” was the best line of the night.

13. Gordon Ramsay

The Oyster Bar, “Bunhead’s” Luke’s Diner, is a prime candidate for “Kitchen Nightmares.”

14. The Art of War

Sasha’s light reading in prep for her super competitive dance camp. There better be flashbacks.

15. Megan Fox

Hubble thinks Michelle is prettier than Megan Fox, a sentiment that is sure to please Sutton Foster.

16. The Nutcracker

They managed to reference The Nutcracker, as well as the show’s performance of The Nutcracker. “Bunheads” is getting meta.

They even unintentionally referenced “Once Upon a Time”
