    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Both The Jackal and Gus' own father (who was the source model) have a car with the license plate that read: "J.K.L."

      • We see that Gus' father Jordan is also a physicist--an incredibly and achieved successful one.

      • Usually, if the villain-of-the-week's plan is foiled, said villain can be instantly defeated--going up in light. But it won't work with The Jackal here as this is the last level and the last level and master-boss is supposed to be the most difficult.

      • We see that the inspiration for The Jackal was Gus' own father since they have a very estranged relationship. In this episode, they begin to mend the burned bridges after Gus slays The Jackal.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Jackal: (after Lauren slips a Bobby Mercer baseball card in his lapel, causing him to burn in pain) I am your superior! I will not be treated this way! Wahhhh!!!

      • Jackal: You know what time it is? It's the end... of the beginning.

      • Jackal: (after setting fire to Gus' baseball card collection) I know what you're thinking, Kid! You're sure hoping there's not a Mickey Mantle rookie card in there. An impossibility now that I think about it. I don't see a baseball!

      • Jackal: (while holding a blow-torch cane) Your-time-is-up! Hasta La Vista!

      • Jackal: :(While looking around the video-synthasized hospital for Gus and Lauren) Where are you, Kid? You're taking all the FUN out of this game!
        Gus: Dad wasn't a Gus fan. His whole primary goal in fatherhood was turning me into the next him.
        Lauren: : (On The model for the Jackal and why the ball is his Achillies' Heel) It's not like I know who's he's based on. Who is the Jackal--some little-league coach who benched you from getting picked off third?

      • (repeated line)
        The Jackal: Tough luck, kid.

      • Jackal: KID! I don't like your attitude!

      • (preparing to throw the killer baseball at the Jackal to kill him)
        Gus: Hasta la vista... Jackal!

    • NOTES (3)

      • In nearly every episode, Gus, Lauren and Peter use some kind of gun to fire at the weekly villain--here, it's a ball-launcher gun that shoots autographed Bobby Mercer balls.

      • The password to enter the video game after The Jackal changed it was the license plate on The Jackal's car--his own vanity plate--the letters "JKL."

      • The Jackal's weakness is the Bobby Mercer autographed baseball Gus got from the one and only pro-baseball game Gus went to with his father. At one point, a Bobby Mercer baseball card merely hurts The Jackal.
