    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The music played in Nardo's sub is "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach.

      • Nitpick: When Jack, Emilia, and Blackbeard are up in the hot air balloon, Jack looks over at the boat containing the "Founding Fathers and Sons". George Washington is shown dancing. The show takes place in 1801, but Washington died in 1799, two years before this episode was supposed to take place.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Emilia: Nardo really was quite brilliant. Too bad he was a psychopath. I wonder what truly drove him.
        Jack: Oh, come on! That's a no brainer!
        Emilia: Oh, really? Do enthrall me with you analysis, Jack.
        Jack: Let me give you a hint. The guys spends his whole life builing torpedos, rockets and submarines. Obviously, he's got his own little missile crisis.
        Emilia: Do all your psychological theories involve anatomy?
        Jack: Just the good ones, baby!

      • Emilia: That looks like a self-propelled underwater explosive!
        Nardo: Very perceptive. Because this is a self-propelled underwater explosive!

      • Jack: Oh, no. Every time you give me that look it means pro bono work, and I'm not pro pro bono.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Blackbeard: (singing) Go down, Blackbeard, go down Egypt way...

        Blackbeard is singing a personalized version of the slave spiritual "Go down, Moses", sung by slves in the United States South longing for freedom. It was also used as a signal in the Underground Railroad, and was associated with Harriet Tubman, a former slave who helped other slaves run away to the North, and later was a Union spy during the Civil War.

      • Nardo: You are an empty-headed animal food trough wiper!
        Nardo quotes exactly one of the French taunts from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975).
