Walking into his office, Danny cracks up at the sight of Rectangle Head wearing dark sunglasses. Turns out that sometime between midnight and this morning, Casey was able to get an appointment with an ophthalmologist, and the doctor dilated Caseys pupils for the eye exam so everything is really bright. To save time, I'll just list all the references during this scene and later scene to people Casey resembles while wearing sunglasses: Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano, Roy Orbison, and Jack Nicholson. Strangely, no Corey Hart, which I guess would be the "hip" reference for Natalie to use, but she doesn't get a scene with Casey this week. For much too long in this scene, we are treated to shots of Casey talking to empty space because Danny has gotten up and moved without Casey realizing it, even though Dan clonks around like a water buffalo. Let me get this straight: Caseys pupils are letting in too much light, but these sunglasses are somehow so powerful that he is completely blind while wearing them? And he was given these blinding eye drops at his Instant Eye Appointment without any regard for his ability to work? And how did Casey even get to work in the first place? I have worn some form of corrective lenses since I was six and I have to say I've never been blinded for "six to eight hours" by anything any of my eye doctors have ever done to me.
