One aspect of “The Good Place” that becomes immediately apparent is that Eleanor Shellstrop enjoys using profanity. Unfortunately at Good Place, swearing is not allowed, and there is a “obscenity filter” to block words deemed inappropriate. Every time Eleanor tries to take the oath, what comes out is a fork, a shirt, a bench, here, ashes, a deck, or a cork. Paying homage to “The Good Place,” Season 5, Episode 16 of “Lucifer” features a scene where he falls into heaven and is found by Lee Garner (Jeremiah Birkett). After Lucifer began talking about being saved by Lillith’s ring, Garner replied, “I don’t know what that fork means, but you look like you can use one hand.”
Fans of both shows that received the nod were delighted, with Redditor u/queendomchapter starting a thread about it. On the thread, u/HereComesTheLuna commented, “Lol, I’ve never seen more than a few scenes from this show but that reference doesn’t seem very subtle to me.” They added that the line was most likely given as a nod to “The Good Place” fans. U / lavishloser also excitedly wrote: “I caught this too!!!!! that’s smart and amazing!!!!!!”
While the writers of “Lucifer” didn’t need to give any acknowledgment of a show airing on a completely different network, it was a great move on their part and many fans. The grave will not forget that.
