    • While in the bar Max is drinking milk, but the amount of milk in the glass keeps changing from a full glass to half, then full again, then empty glass, continuing on several times.

  • Quotes

    • Logan: Max, this is insane.
      Max: It's the only explanation.
      Logan: No, it's grave robbing.

    • Logan (to Max): I'm not supposed to help you 'cause you're the superhero and I'm the guy on wheels.

    • (Someone wolf whistles and Logan wheels backwards towards the bar)
      Logan: You got a problem?
      B.C.: No, man. I ain't got not problem. Just enjoying the view.
      Logan: Why don't you go enjoy the view from your cave.
      B.C.: Oh okay. (He pushes Logan's chair down and it flips backwards)

    • Sage: "Tryptophan" - that's what's in milk.
      Max: How'd you know?
      Sage: My aunt's a doctor.

    • Max: This girl's going to kick back, make S'mores and relax.

    • Max: I thought you wanted shoes.
      Sketchy: Sky doesn't have shoes. Herbal has shoes.
      Max: So you're going to trade him the tires for the shoes?
      Sketchy: Herbal doesn't need tires. He needs a waffle iron for his lady. Original Cindy needs tires.
      Max: And Original Cindy has a waffle iron?
      Sketchy: No. Normal has the waffle iron. He's going to swap Original Cindy for some lingerie so she can give it to Herbal for the tires Sky's giving me for the gas, which is how I'm getting my shoes.
      Max: Nice.

    • Max: It's good to know that when the superhero's otherwise occupied, the sidekick's ready to step in.

    • Logan: Thing about the wheelchair...builds upper-body strength.

    • Max: If I'd known this was gonna be an Eyes Only wilderness retreat, I wouldn't have come.

    • Trudy: Bathroom's through that door. Master bedroom.
      Max & Logan (simultaneous): Where's the guest bedroom?
      Max & Logan (simultaneous): I snore.

    • Man: Welcome to Cape Haven.
      Max: ...where the men are men and the tourists are afraid.

    • Max: I don't mean to bruise your delicate male ego, but your uncle's cabin is back that way.

    • Max: Class One, VIP, no-questions-asked sector passes. I had to hang upside-down outside the window for an hour to swipe these from police headquarters. I almost horked, I got so nauseous, and I hate horking. You're not bailing on me.

    • Max: What does Normal want with lingerie?
      Sketchy: I'm a businessman. I don't ask questions.

  • Notes

    • In the show, it's alluded that the Arabs created the Pulse, and that it why B.C. and his friends killed the Gilan family, but if you look it up, Gilan is a Scottish/Irish surname. The truth is B.C. and his friends were unreasonably angry and jealous that the Gilans had managed to keep a back up generator up and running.
