Risky Business (Movies)

Episode title: "Ruskie Business"

Before Tom Cruise started jumping on couches and prescribing vitamins for depression, he was simply a sexy movie star whose first big role was in the 1983 teen flick Risky Business. "Ruskie" is a slang term for Russian. The title of this '80s-themed episode, which also involves a Russian bride-to-be, combines the two jokes and sums up the plot nicely. There's also a Tom Cruz, but that's just a coincidence.

"I love the '80s!"
"Heads up. Risky business at 12:00."

Logan's quip is a reference to VH1's I Love the '80s TV series, but he probably means he loves the '80s since that's when he was born. He comes to the dance decked out in an oxford shirt, sunglasses, and socks (and underwear, we presume), looking just like Tom Cruise's character in the famous "Old Time Rock and Roll" scene.
