Hot Tub High School is a low-budget movie released in 2000, about a year before John Decker died. A young Chloe Decker starred in the film and appeared naked in a scene which Lucifer refers to as "The famous nude scene". There is a sequel, Hot Tub Hotel, in which Chloe did not appear.
History[edit | edit source]
In "Pilot", Lucifer remembers seeing Chloe in the movie. Lucifer calls the film "a complete Fast Times [at Ridgemont High] rip-off" and compares Chloe to Phoebe Cates.
In "Everything's Coming Up Lucifer", Lucifer mentions the movie title to Chloe.
In a flashback in "My Little Monkey", John Decker, Chloe's father, gives tickets to the film to Petey, a Korean shop owner. He refers to Chloe as "My Little Monkey" and says he's proud of her. Petey mentions the "funny business" about 15 minutes in and John asks Petey to tell Chloe that the movie was good.
In "They're Back, Aren't They?", a suspect believes that Chloe and Lucifer coming to arrest him is a prank played by his friend, the victim of the episode. When confronted by them, the suspect states that he thought it was a prank because he was confronted with a man named Lucifer and Chloe who he recognized as "the chick from Hot Tub Hotel." Lucifer tells the suspect it was actually Hot Tub High School and that "she wasn't in the sequel."
In "Once Upon a Time", which takes place in an alternate universe where Chloe remained an actress and never met Lucifer, Lucifer mentions this film when they meet for the first time. Like in the main universe, Chloe is deeply embarrassed by the film.
