    • (bringing out a drilling machine) Dr. Venture: That's it, just like that. Easy! Pull back a bit. God, you're right on top of me! Brock: Can't help it. It's.. it's stiff, Doc. Maybe I should lube thing thin up before we take it down there. Dr. Venture: It'll be fine. It's not built for speed, it's build for deep penetration. Brock: All right, that's it. you promised no penetration jokes.

    • Dr. Orpheus: And you're certain they haven't simply… stepped out? They have been known to engage in impromptu derring-do from time to time. Hank: Without us? Can you think of even one place on Earth they wouldn't drag us along to? Look at this, that is a giant centipede scar!

    • Jefferson Twilight: Damn it, Orpheus. I almost had that bloodsucker. Ow! Now I got the blue balls in my Blood Eye. Dr. Orpheus: My apologies, old friend. But the Order of the Triad is in ne… what are you doing in… is this London? Jefferson Twilight: Hey, man, I got to go where the blacktion is.

    • Jefferson Twilight: Two, you don't order me to do anything, you're not my mama, she was taken by marauding blaculas when I was ten.

    • The Alchemist: Well, I don't detect any astral rifts, temporal anomalies, or ectoplasmic residue. Jefferson Twilight: And they haven't been taken by blaculas, although I'm not prepared to rule out Caucasian vampires.

    Trivia (1)

    • Trivia: One of the children, a boy with wild red hair who looks a bit like comedian Carrot Top, shown attending the tour in the flashback is identical to another who attended Rusty's Day Camp in "The Buddy System." Given the span of years involved, it obviously isn't the same boy.

There is also a man dressed like a harlequin, from David Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes" video, one of many David Bowie references in the The Venture Brothers.

    • Jefferson Twilight: Not diggin' this Charlie's Angels crap. Referencing the 1976-1981 TV series which featured a team of three women (Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett) who worked for an unseen employer named Charlie as detectives and undercover agents.
