    • QUOTES (4)

      • Napoleon: Sacre bleu! Get off your butt, Croque!

      • Emilia: I never thought you'd be foul enough to frequent such an establishment, Jean Claude.
        Jean Claude the Carrier Parrot: Oh, I cannot seem to help myself, madame. I seem to have an unquenchable thirst for sex on the beach.
        Jack: (laughing at Emilia's shocked expression) That's another drink, Em.
        Jean Claude: It is?

      • The Daring Dragoon: (as he rescues Madison from the guillotine) Sorry Emperor, you won't be getting any head today!

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (6)

      • Title:
        The title is a nod to the c boxing movie, Raging Bull.

      • Quote: Maxi Me Napoleon (Verne Troyer) often is carried about in a chair carried by a large servant. This character is credited as "Maxi Me". Verne played a character called "Mini Me" in the Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

      • Emilia: Oh, don't come crying to me when your wax wings melt.

        This is a reference to the Greek myth of Daedelus and Icarus. Daedelus, a famous inventor, created wings for himself and his son Icarus but warned the boy not to fly too high because the wax holding the feathers on would melt. Icarus ignored his warning and crashed into the sea and drowned.

      • The Louisiana Purchase
        The Territory of Louisiana was a French possession until Napoleon sold it to President Jefferson. Napoleon needed the money to pay for his war in Europe.

      • Captain Brogard: You don't know how I've fantasized about this moment.
        Jack: Oh yeah? Which one of us was Little Bo Peep?

        Little Bo Peep is a character from a nursery rhyme, a shepardess who loses her sheep.

      • Jack: Okay here's the plan. You get on the grassy knoll position, myself in the book depository and we'll triangulate that evil genius till kingdom come!
        Emilia: Don't be silly Jack, that would never work.
        Jack: You're right, we need a patsy.


        The reference points to the incident where from the Texas school book depository in Dallas, an assassin (Some say patsy) Lee Harvey Oswald is alleged to have fired the shots that killed President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Jack mentions the "Grassy Knoll". The grassy knoll is a small hill inside the Dealey Plaza and was above President Kennedy and to his right (west and north) during the assassination.
