  • Quotes

    • Tony: (after his cameraman destroys a whole day's worth of food in a local eatery) So, Todd, now that you've brought shame on our country and left this entire table hungry and in fact shocked and horrified by the ape-like American's behavior, how do you feel? Maybe, you can push a little kid down a flight of stairs later.

    • Tony: Though a part of me would like to stay here and eat pig until I lose consciousness, there's a lot more to do and see.

  • Notes

    • This episode was dedicated to the people of Indonesia, hoping to raise awareness about the devastating May 2006 earthquake.

  • Allusions

    • Tony: Kind of looks like using "The Force." I'm not sure if they actually attempt this or if this is just a demonstration of something they believe is theoretically possible, but I can tell you one thing, if guys with knives are coming at me, I'm not trusting my inner power.

      "The Force" is the mystical power from George Lucas' sci-fi epic Star Wars movie series.
