The clinic that Lucy visits is called the "Callahan Institute" and Dr. Keats (Dan Aykroyd) states that it is "funded out of Sandusky, Ohio by T.B. Callahan, the automotive components tycoon". In
Tommy Boy, Aykroyd plays a rival automotive components tycoon that is attempting to purchase Tom (T.B.) Callahan's company.
