    • Siegfried: Well, it ain't Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald, cookie.

      Sharing a Canadian Mountie disguise with Shtarker, Siegfried evokes the memory of two great movie stars of the 1930's and 1940's. Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald were partnered in a number of movie operettas together, but the most fondly remembered is Rose Marie (1936) a story set in Canada in which Eddy played a Mountie. The most famous song from that movie was "Indian Love Song", whose opening lyrics ("When I'm calling you oo-oo-oooo") are used as password in the episode.
