Can Everybody Learn from ERISA, by Going "Old School"?

So I'm flipping from channel to channel and I flip to "Old School".  ‎I hadn't seen it in a while and didn't remember any of the details.  Imagine my surprise when, just as I turn to the movie, I hear Andy Dick's Barry saying, "Everybody can learn from ERISA."  I even replayed it for others, and we all heard it the same way.   Not possible - what was he really saying?

Well, it took me a while to decipher it, but it turns out he was referring to Perrey Reeve's Marissa, and in fact was saying, "Everybody can learn from Marissa."  ‎Ahhhhhhhhhhh.  The two sentences are phonetically  identical, with maybe the ever-so-slightest variation between an "a" sound and an "e" sound after the word "from"!

Given the subject matter of the quote, I guess I should be happy that the sentence was indeed the latter and not the former.  Or, maybe, if this really were an ERISA reference, ERISA's fame and breadth would be even greater?

Anyway, some pretty funny confusion, if you ask me . . .
