Basically trying to burn in that only methods the reference type knows about are available, even though the actual object's method is going to be run.
The analogy works too because a cook(object) might know some dishes(his own methods) that aren't on the menu(reference) and also might put his special touches(overrides) on the available meals(methods).
Sorry if I've confused anyone, but I think I've burned this in in the process.
