Maximus: I can't spend a whole week in bed. What about my empire?
Minimus: Well, maybe I could have a shot at it, I mean, after all these years of viewing your masterful leadership, I'm bound to have picked up something.
Maximus: You? You're not worthy enough to be in charge of a light switch! Let alone an entire evil empire!
Villains: Minimus and The Scribe.
The Scribe: The Scribe riding on his book
Take Two Evils And Call Me In The Morning: Maximus lying in bed with a thermometer in his mouth and an ice pack on his head
One of the writers that The Scribe kidnaps is named K.C. Growling, who is clearly a spoof to J.K. Rowling, author of the "Harry Potter" books.
