    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (8)

    • NOTES (4)

      • The title is a play on the pirate quote "Shiver me timbers!"

      • The pirate captain is called Long John Silver the 23rd, and is an obvious reference to the pirate in Treasure Island, Long John Silver. Dodgers even comments that the name "Long John Silver" is copyrighted, but the copyright had long since expired as the book was written in 1881. This is also why there are so many re-editions of Treasure Island, there are no loyalties to pay on it; including another futuristic rendition of the story: Disney's Treasure Planet.

      • This episode is "Chapter: 26.34".

      • Fred and Barney (The Flintstones) make a brief appearance.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Martian dispatching pirate
        X2's defeat of a sword-wielding martial-artist enemy using a gun is a homage to a similar scene in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', an Indiana Jones film.

      • n/a: The Love Boat
        The music for the cruise line -- particularly before it's boarded -- is based on the music from The Love Boat. The couples Cadet and Dodgers meet are parodies of how the couples are presented on The Love Boat as well. Also, notice how Porky points his fingers after he serves some drinks -- it's just like how Isaac from the show served his drinks!

      • Captain Richards: Yes, my lady. That is, unless we hit an iceberg.
        The Luxuria is clearly a reference to the luxury ship RMS Titanic, which sunk when it hit an iceberg in 1912. The opening shots and narration are also similar to the 1997 James Cameron movie about that ill-fated ship.
