    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • There are a number of inconsistencies when it comes to the Hasselhoff Comet. They say that the comet was discovered by David Hasselhoff while taping Baywatch Nights, putting it's discovery somewhere between 1995 and 1997. Then it is stated that the comet is only visible every 6000 years, making the next pass near earth in the year 7996 A.D, give or take a year. They also say that the comet only passes through our solar system every 6000 years. Comets never leave the solar system they revolve around the Sun (or any other star) just as planets do.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Ba: This week, as Hasselhoff passes overhead, a window will open in the heavens. We call that window Glory's hole and we must pass though it to be delivered. That's why we call ourselves The Glory Holians.
        Gary: Please don't take this the wrong way, sir, but one, you're insane. Two, everybody here is insane and three, any one who would fall for this crap is a mindless idiot.
        (Mike burst though the door in the same white outfit that the cult members wear and breaks into a song about Glory's Hole.)

      • Li: What would you say if I told you that our bodies are merely husk. Temporary containers for our unenlightened souls.
        Mike: Kinda like corn?
        Li: Exactly.
        Mike: I'd say it's time to start shucking.
