Trivia: Right at the end of the scene where Warner breaks up with Elle, Elle is crying loudly and Warner remarks to the other restaurant patrons, "Bad salad." Elle then gets up and storms out of the restaurant, and Warner stands and calls, "OK, you get the car, I'll get the check!" At that point, if you listen closely, you can hear an extra say, "I'm not having the salad!"

Question: What the heck was Enid talking about with Warner at the party?

Answer: She was talking about the word "semester." Since it is similar to the word "semen," Enid says that the word favors males. She wants to change it to "ovester." Since that word is similar to the word "ovary," it would favor females.
