    • QUOTES (2)

      • Rock: (about Roberta) I think she's a robot from the future. The only thing different from the movies is that Schwarzenegger isn't here.

      • Revy: Kid, I just wish that maid of yours is as strong as you believe. (takes out her gun) This hasn't seen much use lately. This Cutass.
        (starts to smile and puts the gun away)
        Just kiddin'. There's no point in hoping, not when I'm stuck with a maid-obsessed brat from the fucking country.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • The secret machine guns out of music instrument cases was popularized by the gun-splattering El Mariachi movie series by Robert Rodriguez, where the main character carried a violin case full of guns. Roberta's briefcase serves as a rocket launcher, which is a similar move by a character in Desperado who uses his cello case as a rocket launcher, although Roberta doesn't lean down and fire it from over her shoulder.

      • The episode directly references Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator series which features robots that are programmed to kill and destroy.

      • Dutch: This makes the Battle of Khe Sanh look like a picnic.

        Khe Sanh was one of the bloodiest battles during the Vietnam war.
