    • Brain: I have almost completed honing my rapier-keen mental abilities. For now I have the power, for I am The Fog! By altering the frequencies of my voice, I am able to befog men's minds with these (uses two fingers to draw down the corners of his mouth).

    • Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering? Pinky: I think so, Brain, but the rockettes? I mean, it's mostly girls, isn't it? Brain: Aren't we rodents stigmatised enough already?

    Allusions (2)

    • Pinky and Brain being at an old time radio drama was likely a subtle nod to actor Orson Welles, upon whom the voice and mannerisms of Brain was based. Before hitting it big as a film director and actor, Welles was a prominent figure on radio, often lending his distinctive voice to various radio shows, the most famous being his 1938 adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel The War Of The Worlds.

    • Episode Title: Pinky & The Fog The title of this episode is a reference to the radio drama The Shadow. The Shadow was a masked vigilante with the power to cloud men's minds.
