    • Macbeth: This episode contains multiple references to the Shakespeare play, most notably Kikyo's opening speech and Suikotsu's actions near the end of the program. Kikyo's opening speech is on the theme "Pure is unpure" and resembles Macbeth's three witches' "Fair is foul" speech from Act 1, Scene 1. Towards the end of the epsiode, Suikotsu complains of being unable to wash apparently imaginary blood from his hands; Lady Macbeth has a similar problem in Act 5, Scene 1 (home of the famous "Out, out damned spot!" quote)
