  • Quotes

    • (Dave is sitting at the New Zealand Town booth)
      Woman On Street: What language do you speak here?
      Dave: Um, we pretty much make it up as we go along. That's why the people from there are so hard to understand.

    • Murray: Greg, I need some anti-glue.
      Greg: What is anti-glue?
      Murray: It's anti-glue, it gets rid of glue.
      Greg: I don't think that exists Murray.
      Murray: Well, just get it, okay?

    • Dave: You guys seem a lot cooler today. Usually you guys wear clothes from the 70's.
      Jemaine: They're not from the 70's, they're from New Zealand.
      Dave: Isn't that the same thing?
      Jemaine: Similar I suppose.

  • Allusions

    • Babylon 5

      In the video for Fashion is Danger, Jermaine and Bret wear costumes from the TV show, Babylon 5 .

    • The song "Fashion is Danger" is a parody of the song and the music video for Fade to Grey by Visage.

    • Chinatown

      At the end of the show, Murray tells the Prime Minister, "Forget it Bryan, it's New Zealand Town." This is a reference to the closing lines of the movie Chinatown .
