Beatles (Music)

"Hey, have you noticed that the new kid in town has, uh, been all over your trailer-park ex?"
"Let it be, Logan."
"Okay, nowhere man, you be the fool on the hill. See if I care."

The Beatles were something like the N'Sync of the 1960s, only with bowl cuts and actual talent; they also might be yet another example of a pop cultural reference soaring slightly past the desired demographic. Fortunately though, all the citizens of Neptune seem to accumulate the equivalent of a Cultural Studies Bachelor's knowledge before finishing grade school, so duel-quoting Fab Four songs such as "Let It Be," "Nowhere Man," and "Fool on the Hill" might not be completely amiss for non-nerdy rich kids Duncan and Logan.

Madison Sinclair's parents help encourage their daughter's intense bitchery by arranging a lovely rendition of the Beatles tune played by a string quartet during lunch. Written mostly by Paul McCartney (though credited to Lennon/McCartney), it appears on the White Album and features Yoko Ono as one of the backup singers. Madison is pleased by this display, along with the cake, but as Veronica points out, "If they really loved her, they would've gotten the real Beatles."
