  • Trivia

    • Tagline: "How now, gas man." -King Philip

    • After Peggy throws the tomato at King Philip you see it lands on the badge on his jacket. Most of the tomato lands about the top of his badge and seems to set on the top part. A few scenes later when Peggy is being put in the stocks for punishment you see Philip again and the stain has moved down the badge. Most notably the tomato stain looks larger and a large chunk of it has moved below the badge onto the shirt.

    • After Peggy has knocked King Philip off his horse at the end you can the sun is setting behind her, when it goes to a reaction shot of Bobby and Luanne in the stands, it is a blue sky and sunny behind them. The following shot of Peggy it goes back to the sun setting. The mistake could be said to be deliberate as the shot was used earlier in the scene and probably used again to save time and money than re-animating the exact same shot.

  • Quotes

    • Peggy: Why don't you drop the act, and you explain to me why the wenches make seventy cents on the dollar, and the village idiot gets full dental?

    • Mr. Strickland: I got a lead on a new client so big, it'll put all my bastard sons through college.

    • King Philip: Ah, so you are the keeper of the flame?
      Hank: Uh... assistant keeper of the flame.

    • King Philip: We wage war on France on the morrow!
      Kid: That is so gay.

    • Peggy: In the future, they will invent a magical sucking device, to free women from household drudgery!

    • King Philip: How now, gas man?
      Hank: Uh, pretty good, thanks. My wife Peggy is ready to serve the kingdom.
      Peggy: I am a Renaissance woman. This is a Renaissance Faire. We are a perfect fit!

    • Hank: Got-dang it! That's my third pair of these got-dang tights today!
      Bobby: Least you get to wear tights.

    • Dale: The Prime Directive has been breached! Women's Liberation has happened too soon! I must warn the future!
      Bill: Take me with you! I hate it here.

    • King Philip: Crap, I'm gonna lose my fair! I don't wanna go back to sellin' real estate!

    • Dale: (dressed in a "Star Trek" uniform at the Renaissance fair admission booth) It says right here, 'One dollar discount with period costume'. Well, I'm from the future, and the future is a period, ergo, this is a period costume! Period!

    • Hank: (handing Luanne money for her and Bobby to spend at the Renaissance fair) I'm putting you in charge of the spending money. Spend it any way you want with three rules: No tights, tassels, or skirts on the boy. Oh, and no bells.

    • Hank: Oh, I'm a jackass.
      Kahn: Stop stating the obvious.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Dale: The Prime Directive has been breached! An allusion to the fictional Star Trek universe's Temporal Prime Directive (forbidding time travelers to interfere in any other timeline) although he's stating the more general Prime Directive (Starfleet General Order 1) against interference in the culture, social or technical development of (usually more primitive) civilizations encountered in the same timeline.
