Henry Doheny is a parody of Harry Houdini. Houdini actually claimed that he would one day come back from the dead, which is what Doheny does.
This was the second episode of the new season to be shown in the UK before the US (the other was Steered Straight), shown sixteen days earlier. It was the fourth episode of the new season to be shown in the UK.
Drake: Well, that wasn't nice.
Josh: Hey, those two have jobs to do and Helen doesn't like it when..AHHH!
Drake: (to Mr. Doheny) Ever seen anyone do this? (flaps wrist)
Josh: Megan, Come here!
Megan: (walks over and smiles to Doheny) Hi (then to Josh) What?
Josh: Uh, Megan this is Henry Doheny. I'm goanna go make you a sandwich with some crinko cup fries and you keep him company. Runs off to make Doheny his sandwich
Megan: Henry Doheny...Didn't you use to be like a really famous magician.
Henry Doheny: Hmmm...(pretends to think) Why don't you...reach into...(points to trashcan and Megan looks at it)that decorative trash can and tell me.
(Megan looks at him and searches through the trash-can and picks out old papers than a black and white bunny)
Megan: (gasps) A bunny!
Doheny: Her name is Cookie, if you hold her close, she'll lick your nose.
(Megan puts Cookie to her face and Cookie begins to lick her)
Megan (laughs) Oh my god, this is the cutest bunny I've ever seen! Can I keep her?
H. Doheny: I insist!
Megan: Thanks! (goes to her room, admiring Cookie)
Megan: Nice outfits!
Drake: Six months ago, I broke my arm and the doctor put a cast on my arm, so I go home thinking everythings ok right, so like a week later I'm in my Algebra 2 class, like totaly bored, so I start flapping my arm around, come to find out, my wrist makes this funny sound (flaps wrist)
Josh: Time to jammie up! (opens the closet)
Josh: Aaaahhh! (jumps to the bed) Mr. Doheny how did you get in here?!
Drake: Right, I´m gonna call the cops.
Walter: (looking himself in the mirror) Ahh! Check me out! I´m bald. (leaving the room) Honey, Mr. Doheny made me bald!
Doheny: Pick a card!
(Drake picks a card)
Doheny: Now, put it back.
(Drake gives the card back, and Doheny takes the deck into his jacket)
Drake: (looks at Doheny with a weird gaze) What's my card?
(Drake coughs out a card)
Doheny: Is that your card?
Drake: Yeah. Please do me a favor and don´t make things come outta my body.
Girl: Why are those guys wearing togas?
Drake: Oh that´s because they came to see that movie about Rome.
Girl: Oh, I see. Where is Rome?
Drake: Umm... Romania?
Doheny: Megan, seeing as you helped me to make me famous and rich again. I got you something. (gives her a yellow paper)
Megan: A check for $50,000!!
Drake: Oh, we helped, too!
Doheny: And I got something for you. Yo-yo´s for each one of you... enjoy!
(Helen walks in and sees Josh covered in "blood.")
Helen: Is that...blood all over your face?
Josh: Well, you see-
Helen: I don't care.
Doheny did the Houdini illusion where he appeared to be dead, then, at his funeral, he magically re-appeared.
The part where the girl Drake is dating starts to do something that is almost impossible such as putting her whole fist in her mouth and is interrupted is very similar to the tricks Amanda tried to do on The Amanda Show where she would start to do trick and then be interrupted.
A spoof on the real-life magician/illusionist, Harry Houdini.
Parody of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The Great Dohemy
Obviously a spin-off of 'The Great Houdini'.
