    • Lucky: You look like I feel whenever I run over one of my dogs.

    • Dale: Yeah, when I first found Redcorn, he was in some go-nowhere Whitesnake meets White Lion meets Great White ripoff group. But I recreated him as the Native American Raffi.

    • John Redcorn: Let's open with "I Need Money." We can transition to "Gotta Get Money" and do a whole money medley.

    • Lucky: We’re either ahead of our times, or possibly way behind. Stuck in some more classical time. But either way, us and our times ain’t seein’ eye to eye.

    • Buck: Well, what do you recommend for a couple of big spenders? Hot Waitress: My boyfriend likes the surf ‘n turf. Buck: Medium cheese pizza; two waters -- tap.

    Allusions (4)

    • Dale: I recreated him as the Native American Raffi.

      Raffi is a famous children's entertainer, who has released many albums.

    • Bill: So John Redcorn is opening a casino? I always wanted to see a white tiger before I died. Bill is referring to the white tigers featured in the "Siegfried and Roy" show at The Mirage casino in Las Vegas. The show, which had been at The Mirage since 1990, closed in October 2003 after Roy Horn was bitten by a white tiger during the show.

    • Luanne: What's a Yoko? Dale calls Luanne "Yoko." Yoko Ono was the wife of Beatles singer/songwriter John Lennon. Many people view Yoko Ono as being responsible for the downfall of the group as she sent Lennon into strange musical directions. Luanne is too young (and ignorant) to know who she was.

    • References to many 70's icon bands were made in this episode: Bachman-Turner Overdrive (hits like Takin' Care of Business and You Aint Seen Nothing Yet), Foghat (Slow Ride), Deep Purple (Smoke On The Water and Woman From Tokyo), and ELO (Don't Bring Me Down).
