    • Ken: You don't understand Mr. Da Vinci, I already have a tattoo on my chest. Da Vinci: So, a man only has one painting on his walls? Ken: I want to have it removed. Da Vinci: You want to have this removed? Ken: Yeah and I only got a few hours can you do it? Da Vinci: You're in luck because you have just hit one of the three artists that can remove a tattoo in one afternoon. Homer: Those are awfully long needles. Da Vinci: A tattoo design goes all the way thru just like inlaid linoleum. May I see your design please. Ken: Yeah. Da Vinci: That's fine ... hey excuse me by any chance did you have this done in Hong Kong? Ken: Yeah. Da Vinci: You did. (all excited) I knew it, I knew it! That's an El Greco! Why didn't you tell me this was an El Greco!?! Look I want to show you something, look how he signs his signature over here all curled up, that's the touch of the Master! The depth, the color, the feeling! Ken: Well you better get started. Da Vinci: Get what started. Ken: You gotta take this off. Da Vinci: Me I wouldn't touch it. Ken: What do you mean you wouldn't touch it. Da Vinci: Would Picasso go around tearing Rembrandt. Can you imagine how much this is worth in a few years from now! Ken: I don't care I just want it off. Da Vinci: Young man you should be hanging in a museum!

    • Ken: (Making excuses to Phyllis so she won't see his tattoo that he got in Hong Kong during wartime) I made a promise that I was saving myself for the right girl.

    Allusions (1)

    • Phyllis: (kissing Ken) And think of the music just drawing us closer and closer. (record drops with Adolf Hitler's speech playing) oh that Hitler! Ken: Where'd you get the Hitler record? Phyllis: Oh ah it's a World War II album I bought a long time ago. A World War II Hitler allusion.
