Question: What do the frogs stand for? Is it a biblical reference, or could the screenwriters just not think of a better way to wrap up?

Answer: It's much debated the exact meaning, but it's kind of a reference saying that seemingly impossible things do happen. As we see later in the film, people stuck in similarly impossible situations might just have a chance of getting out of them.
