An Homage

So Amy and I really enjoy the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Last night the episode focused on the regular characters searching for a place where one of them once had an awesome burger. Regis Philban guest-starred as himself, also looking for that burger.

In one scene, Marshall, played by Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall's Jason Segal, was describing the exquisite combination of ingredients and flavors. As he is doing this, an homage to Amadeus occurs. There is a scene in this Academy-award-winning film where Soliare is Mozart's music for the first time and describing how it is the hand of God writing it. That same Mozart music was used as Marshall described his burger. I don't know how many people would catch this as Amadeus was released over 20 years ago, but I thought it was very inventive and very funny.
