  • Quotes (32)

    • Emerson: The Geek ain't the killer, the Geek is dead. Black Magic Woman killed him. She took that dangling carrot and jammed it in that damn fool's head.

    • Chuck: It might not be the cement that killed him. We could chisel open that block and find a murder weapon like a Mojave rattlesnake or a hidden hypodermic needle that The Great Herrmann unknowingly injected himself with whilst contorting. Emerson: Or we could chisel open that block and find he drowned in cement.

    • Ned: I get anxiety-related acid reflux at the mere mention of magic. Ralston, you wet yourself. We're two grown men with dad-related body fluid issues.

    • Maurice: (to Ned) Did Herrmann tell you Ralston wet himself when Dad disappeared? It was years before we could perform a disappearing act without having to use a mop.

    • Ned: (to Maurice and Ralston about their father) In my defense, you badgered me a little and considerable time has passed. Probably sound like some horrible missionary showing up and telling the natives they're worshiping a false god, but you kind of are.

    Allusions (6)

    • The Great Herrmann: I sense you are a great investigator of things unsolved, named after a poet and a fish. Referencing noted American man of letters Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882). Not only a poet but also a noted essayist and religious philosopher, Emerson's poems celebrated nature and history. He is considered to be one of America's seminal and most profound writers.

    • Olive: Magically delicious little devils. Referring the slogan from the Lucky Charms television commercials. Lucky Charms are a children's breakfast cereal produced by General Mills since 1963. The cartoon TV commercials feature Lucky the Leprechaun using his magic powers to protect his cereal from pursuing youngsters. His catch phrase in the commercial was: "They're magically delicious!"

    • Emerson: Eight years of carrot dangling, while the Bobbsey Twins passed you by? The Bobbsey Twins were the lead characters in a long running series of children's novels published from 1904 to 1979. Actually two sets of twins (Nan and Bert, Flossie and Freddie), they were inseparable companions for numerous adventures.

    • Emerson: What are you going to do? Use your Wonder Twins powers? The Wonder Twins were heroic characters who first appeared on The All New Super Friends Hour (1977) and one or two subsequent versions. The alien siblings Zan and Jayna had super powers that could only be activated by touching hands. Jayna could magically assume the shape of any animal, while Zan was limited to various forms of water. They typically activated their powers while saying "Wonder Twin powers, activate!"

    • Emerson: But, Shazam! I have a ticket. Shazam is the magic word that transforms boy reporter Billy Batson into Captain Marvel, the World's Mightiest Mortal. Shazam was also the name of the 1974-1977 Saturday morning live action TV series featuring Captain Marvel.
