Default Episode Titles

Most of the episode titles are obvious, others are "plays on words" and I can't figure them all out.

I do know some of them such as...

"A Tale of Two Sweeties" = "A Tale of Two Cities"
"The Wrong Stuff" = "The Right Stuff"
"What Price Gloria" = "What Price Glory"
"Leaping of the Shrew" = "Taming of the Shrew"

But there are others that are over my head, such as...
"Her Charm"
"One Strobe Over the Line"
"Black On White On Fire"

Any ideas?
I've never met anyone named Ziggy before. What does he do?
She figures things out.
She?? This Ziggy is a girl?
Sort of, yes.
Must not be much of a looker, huh?
I wouldn't let her hear you say that.

These are all the ones I'm aware of, but there are likely others:

"How the Tess Was Won" = "How the West Was Won"
"Play It Again, Seymour" = "Play It Again, Sam"
"The Americanization of Machiko" = "The Americanization of Emily"
"What Price Gloria?" = "What Price Glory"
"Good Morning, Peoria" = "Good Morning, Vietnam"
"Animal Frat" = "Animal House"
"One Strobe Over the Line" = "One Toke Over the Line"
"Rebel Without a Clue" = "Rebel Without a Cause"
"The Wrong Stuff" = "The Right Stuff"
"The Last Gunfighter" = "The Last Starfighter"
"Roberto!" = "Geraldo"
"It's a Wonderful Leap" = "It's a Wonderful Life"
"The Leaping of the Shrew" = "The Taming of the Shrew"
"A Tale of Two Sweeties" = "A Tale of Two Cities"
"The Leap Between the States" = "The War Between the States"

And also perhaps:

"The Right Hand of God" = "The Left Hand of God"
"Camikazi Kid" = "Kamikaze Kid"
"8 1/2 Months" = "8 1/2" or "9 1/2 Weeks"
"Southern Comforts" = "Southern Comfort"

Ones I've always suspected might be plays on words, but am not aware of any reference:

"The Color of Truth"
"A Portrait for Troian"
"Her Charm"
"Pool Hall Blues"
"Leaping In Without a Net"
"Black and White on Fire"
