Ep Side Story

Fifty years ago today the original production of West Side Story opened at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway.

You can just imagine how often TV writers paid homage to this musical. West Side Story and East Side Story are often used for ep titles. If Patrick Star was a sitcom writer, maybe he would've penned an ep entitled Weast Side Story. How else did scribes honor West Side Story?
