"Dude, where's my Guar?" is a possibly a reference to the 2000 movie "Dude, Where's My Car?", starring Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott, in which two substance abusers attempt to retrace the previous night's events in order to find their car, which ultimately results in contact with alien races, kidnappings and general mayhem.

Other possibilities include the script Crassius Curio is known to have worked on for some time titled "Good Fellow, Where Is My Guar?" in which an Argonian and a Khajjit, who have partaken in too much skooma, lose their Guar and travel the length of Vvardenfell looking for it ultimately resulting in contact with Daedra Princes, kidnappings and general mayhem.

"Dude, Where's My Car?" was writen by Philip Stark and directed by Danny Leiner. It is available on VHS and DVD from Amazon.com.
