    • QUOTES (6)

      • Mike: (loading baggage onto the plane) People who are watching this right now are thinking, "Gosh, should I bring the extra pair of shoes?" Don't bring the extra shoes!!

      • Mike: Is anyone else frightened?

      • Cameraman Doug: (inside the incinerator) It's hot in here.
        Mike: Sure it's hot. It's an incinerator, genius. College boy...

      • Mike: This wouldn't be the first time this season that I'm knocked off my feet with a concrete rifle.

      • [Referring to the concrete gun used to coat the wine cave]
        John: Well actually this is worse than a gun, because there's no trigger on it. You have very little control over how fast it comes out. We just tell you to hold on and we'll tell you when were done.
        Mike: Sounds like every disappointing relationship I've ever had.

      • (While Mike is trying to remove one of the broken drill bits.)
        Mike: Son of a bit!

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Mike teases one of the cave workers that he's just like Columbo.

        Lt. Columbo was a homicide detective played by Peter Falk. The show wasn't exactly a tv series, but 90 and 120 minute movies on NBC from 1968-1978. Falk agreed to revive the character on ABC for additional tv movies in 1989. Columbo seemed like an incompetent fool, but his calling-card false good-byes: "Oh, there´s just one more thing..." explained how the case was solved.

      • Mike: So you want me to break on through to the other side?

        As the workers inform Mike that he gets to break through the final wall of the tunnel, Mike quotes the song title Break on Through (To the Other Side), by The Doors.
