  • Quotes

    • Announcer: And so, the diamond hat of the Czars was returned, while Cosgrove bid a fond farewell to the crew from "Real Life Police".
      Cosgrove: (to the crew) We've been through a lot together. Now go away.

    • (Freakazoid telekinetically throws the villains into a dumpster)
      Roddy: By the soiled trousers of Argus, the lad's done it!

    • Freakazoid: Will you hug me? I'm needy.
      Roddy: Go to work!

    • Roddy: Strength and speed will only take you so far, lad.
      Freakazoid: It got me a second season.
      Roddy: You can't count on that! Networks are fickle! They can drop you like a man with big oak fingers!

    • Cave Guy: Everything ready for tomorrow?
      Cobra Queen: Yesss.
      Cave Guy: Oh, that's jiffy!

    • Cosgrove: Hey, Roddy...what do you call poo gas in Scotland?
      Roddy: Crud vapors.
      Cosgrove: "Crud vapors." I like that.

    • Freakazoid: What were the Czars thinking when they glued these diamonds to the ugliest hat in the world?

    • Freakazoid: Hey, I'm supposed to be in bed and drinking lots of fluids! I'm in bed, I need more fluids!

  • Notes

    • "Real Life Police" opening theme:

      Nasty nasty nasty nasty men,
      Real life police, we up and caught you again!
      You were nabbed by us in a criminal raid;
      Now go to jail and learn a really nice trade.
      Nasty men, caught again, stealing hens -
      Nasty men!

    • This episode is similar to 'Lord Bravery's Sewer Rescue' because it focuses on how the hero wouldn't enter the sewer.

  • Allusions

    • The way Freakazoid snap when he saw the doctor holding the brick and starts crying like a little sissy is a reference from the 1954 movie "THEM!" where a doctor uses the scent of formic acid on a little girl to snap her out of state and cause her to scream out "Them" and started crying.

    • The "Real Life Police" show is a parody of the TV series Cops.
