Abbott Elementary: All of the inside jokes you missed from “Fight”

Big week for Abbott Elementary with some big Golden Globe wins including Best Comedy, Best Actress in a Comedy for Quinta Brunson, Best Supporting Actor for Tyler James Williams. And an early season 3 renewal. All well deserved.

You may have noticed Orlando Jones guest starring again as Gregory’s dad. There was also a praise for Sprite in the Garden.

Orlando Jones used to be a 7-Up Spokesperson. “Make 7… Up Yours”…We’ll never forget that one.

There was the Stranger Things Netflix shout out by Principal Ava. I won’t go into details because the show is still on the air.

Principal Ava also referred to Hotmail. One of the first mainstream email services by Microsoft.

Jimmy Garoppolo is the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and is pictured below..

“Trust the Process” is the catch phrase of NBA Basketball star Joel Embiid. Who plays on the Philadelphia 76ers, the same location where Abbott takes place.

Toy Story 3 is often considered the most emotionally taxing of the all of the Toy Story movies because of the near death of the characters and the bitter sweet goodbye.

“What We Do In The Shadows” is actually on Hulu. And another one of my favorite comedies which is a mockumentary about Vampires.

“Earth, Wind, and Fire” is a R&B and Funk group from the 70s, that also sang “September”.

“There is no crying in Fantasy Football” is a play on “There is no crying in baseball” from “A League of Their Own” (another Tom Hanks movie hit).

Jack Bauer is the hero of “24” one of the best TV action series ever.

The diss on “The Voice” coming from ABC where “American Idol” also airs is just more fuel for that reality TV rivalry. “The Voice” airs on NBC.

Jordan Peele is the comedian turned horror movie director responsible for hits like “Get Out”, “Us”, and “NOPE”, all recommended by this blog.

And finally… Here are the lyrics to “You got a friend in me”…

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me
Yeah, you’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You got troubles, I’ve got ’em too
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and see it through
‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you
The way I do
It’s me and you, boy
And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see it’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
