    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • At the beginning of Miracle City Worker, when Manny and Maria first arrive at Casa del Mariachi, Maria is playing guitar left-handed (left hand strumming). Later, when Maria is singing to El Cucharon, she is playing right-handed (strumming with her right hand).
        Reply: She's anbidexerous.

      • In Dia de Los Malos, Papi yells at Rodolfo for reading off the invitation to the Celebration of Heroes. Then Rodolfo comes out of the bathroom with a comb in his hand and obviously combing something as he mockingly says "You can't ruin my mood." But White Pantera already has his mask on, so what is he combing? His mask?

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Translated, the title "Dia de los Malos" is "Day of the Bad." This is a pun of the Hispanic holiday "Dia de los Muertos" aka Day of the Dead.
