Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    • In the first scene, Darkwing's mainframe computer changes size from smaller before Gosalyn appears to be huge after she shows up.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Steelbeak: (On the phone) No, I won't accept a check! What am I, a drive-in deli? (Hangs up) Sheesh! What is it with these world leaders? Don't they keep an extra trillion around no more?

    • (Darkwing is in Gosalyn's body trying to reach a switch)

  • NOTES (0)


    • Tupperware

      Quakerware is a parody of tupperware, a brand of storage container made of plastic.

    • James Bond

      The concept of Steelbeak could possibily be a reference to another James Bond character, Goldfinger, as that name combines a the name of a metal with a body part.

      Or it may be a reference to the James Bond character Jaws, a 7 feet 2 inch (2.18 m) tall villian with steel teeth. He appeared in the films The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

    • Trading Places

      The title 'Trading Faces' seems to be a reference to the 1983 John Landis film Trading Places. The film has two people, one rich the other poor, who switch lives.

    • Freaky Friday

      A movie (1976 and a remake in 2003) in which a mother and daughter switch bodies.
