In this episode The Amazing Johnathan tries to defeat Criss in a demonstration for the third time.
Banachek: I think probably The Amazing Johnathan is one of Criss Angel's best friends; simply because they have a lot of fun together.
Justin "Bro" Gilbert: They're always trying to one up each other, and usually hilarity ensues.
Mark Cannon: We're going to chain him spread eagle, right across the side of a van. We're gonna take another car and drive it directly at him. Criss is going to have to attempt to extricate himself before the other car crashes into him. In other words you can't afford to have a bad day.
Criss: The Amazing Jonathan is a good friend of mine, and we have this little rivalry back and forth.
This episode makes references to the season 1 episode Chicken, and Season 2 episode Easy Rider.
