In the scene where Dave smashes his boss' lamp with a golf club, he says "See, I golf also, you should bring me sometime." This is a reference to Happy Gilmore (1996), in which Sandler plays a golfer with anger problems. He then says "so when I get out of jail sometime in the next two to five years." Sandler starred in The Longest Yard (2005), where he was sentenced to three years in a state penitentiary.
