  • Quotes (1)

    • Tony: The perfect happiness only attainable through sizzling mystery meats.

    Notes (2)

    • Tony claims that during the filming of this episode he was very uncomfortable, especially in Cairo. He blames it on severe homesickness.

    • The parental discretion warning starts off as English and then morphs into Egyptian writing. Finally, a gust of wind blows the letters away as sand.

    Allusions (2)

    • Tony: About ten minutes out in this tub and our skipper Gilligan rams a f*** thing into the f****** bridge, snapping the mast in half and very nearly impales me with falling timbers. Since Tony is on a wrecked boat and refers to the captain as "Skipper Gilligan," he is alluding to the 1960's sitcom, Gilligan's Island where the Skipper and his first mate wrecked their boat and shipwrecked them all on an island for years.

    • Tony: There's some Mad Max s*** goin' on here. Mad Max was the main character played by Mel Gibson in the post-apocalyptic trilogy Mad Max (1979), The Road Warrior (1982), and Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome (1985).
