A new field agent makes a splash at ISIS, but the other agents begin to believe there's something suspicious about his perfect facade.
Cheryl changes her name two more times in this episode; first to Corinne, and then to Cristal.
This is the second time Brett gets shot by Archer; the first was in the pilot episode, Mole Hunt, though Brett was not named in that episode.
Malory: ...We need a diversity hire.
Archer: I vote Asian chick!
Conway: (About Wilhelm Schmeck) I've tracked him to South Beach where he's arranged to sell the plans to Cuban Naval Intelligence. If that happens, undetectable Cuban missile subs can be parkedright off Miami Beach.
Malory: Ugh, just what Miami needs. More Cubans.
Malory: The ISIS palate has become decidedly monochromatic.
Cheryl: I'm one-sixty-fourth Cherokee. (Everyone groans loudly) What?
Cyril: A: No, you're probably not.
Lana: And B through Z: Nobody gives a shit!
Pam: Whatcha doing, bird-bones? Cheryl: Looking for a pregnancy test online. Pam: But there's a drug store half a...Oh...You mean that you take online. Cheryl: Yeah, I want to know, like, now. Pam: Well, thank god for them Internets.
Cheryl: Tell Conway that his Secret Santa wants to COME early. Or whoever it is that brings Jewish people their Christmas presents.
Lana: (About Conway) What do we know about him? Archer: Only that he's not circumcised. Lana: OK... Glossing over how you know that... Archer: We touched penises. Lana: No! Glossing!
Lana: (Fires hook at Conway) I had something for this! Conway: Was it something like, "You won't get off the hook that easy?" Lana: Damn it! Archer: Yeah, he's good at those.
Pam: Hey. Whoa. And don't go starting rumors about Conway boning your mother. (Archer throws up) You get any of that in the trashcan?
Archer: No. I missed on purpose.
Cyril: Come on, She doesn't need the corner office just to Xerox the ISIS news letter.
Pam: Color Xerox!
Lana: Whoever he is, he ghosted an ID file onto our world wide database. Archer: Yeah, which you probably found out while researching me...Lana...'cause you're in the, ah, "Danger Zone!"Lana: And those were his last words, right before he bled to death on the rug.
Archer: You're black...ish. Lana: Ish!? Archer: Well what's the word for it, Lana? You freaked out when I said quadroon! Lana: Imagine that!! Archer: You imagine it! Malory: BOTH OF YOU IMAGINE SHUTTING UP!!!

Original International Air Dates:
United Kingdom: March 4, 2010 on FIVER
The Lord of the Rings
Conway: Well, some pun involving hobbits. Technician: Like I bet he wishes he was wearing Bilbo's Coat of Dwarven Mithril, right!
This technician earns his nickname "Bilbo" (used in later episodes) by making a fairly obscure reference to the novels/films The Lord of the Rings. In the stories, mithril is a lightweight, super-strong metal forged by the dwarves into armor.
Archer: Hey, tell this broad what's up with ISIS, Pac-Man! Wakka wakka wakka!
The agent Archer is speaking to is named Pac, and Archer nicknames him Pac-Man, referring to an arcade game from 1980. "Wakka wakka" is onomatopoeia of the sound made by the character.
Pam: Well, the system bounced back your sexual harassment complaint against Conway.
Archer: Well, un-bounce it back.
Pam: Who am I, Tron?
In the 1982 sci-fi movie Tron, Tron is the name of a personified computer security program.
The Rat Pack
Archer: You just watch your step Mr... damn it.
Conway: Hey right there, what you should have gone with, was Sammy Gayvis Jr.
This is a play on Sammy Davis Jr., a singer/entertainer and member of the Rat Pack with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
Archer: Seriously, Lana, call Kenny Loggins, because you're in the "Danger Zone". From Top Gun.
Top Gun is a 1986 action film, which features the Kenny Loggins song "Danger Zone." Archer continues to use the "Danger Zone" reference in several later episodes.
