The episode: “The Violent Years,” ep. 610
The explanation: Wood, as openly depicted in his first real feature, Glen or Glenda, was a heterosexual crossdresser. He had a special attachment to the angora wool produced by angora rabbits, and loved to wear it in big, puffy sweaters. His wife described the fixation as something other than a sexual fetish, and more of a “neomaternal comfort.” Crow, meanwhile, is taking a jab both at Wood’s reputation as a director/writer and his cross-dressing habit.
Novelty factor: I knew this well, fan of bad movies that I am. I will say though that this riff was quite difficult to hear in all the commotion of the door sequence starting. I’ve seen this episode a few times before, but I don’t think I’ve ever really heard the riff before.
