- Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV)
"Yeah, I didn't know you could come out during daylight hours."
Likening Kendall to the famously sun-avoiding creatures of the night is not only Logan's way of dissing his former lover's less lovable personality traits in front of his once and current girlfriend, it's also a not-so-subtle shout-out to Charisma Carpenter's most famous role to date as the fabulous Cordelia Chase on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it's spin-off show, Angel.
Both created by Joss Whedon, Buffy set out to turn the tried and tired horror film trope of blonde chicks as victims on its head, while Angel strived to prove that dark, pale, and broody guys in leather are really, really hot. Each of them succeeded in a fashion, even if we are still vainly trying to erase Angel's rendition of "Mandy" — and his dancing skills — from our collective brains. Pass the bleach, please...

"What do you want, Buffy, Tiffany, whatever your name is?"
Ah, Buffy -- a TV character who redefined the young heroine. Sound like another hot blonde we know? Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer's titular main character was a pretty kick-ass chick. With a calling (vampire slayer) and a fighting style (awesome) that belied her silly name, Buffy protected her hometown of Sunnydale from the big bads drawn to the city's hellmouth. With this comparison, Fern unwittingly gives Veronica a compliment. Who wouldn't like being compared to someone who saved the world on a regular basis? Oh, and another observation -- I bet Fern only watched Buffy for Willow and Tara. Just a guess. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
