    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • If you look closely at the vehicle that Tim and Amber Lake own in their room of valuable possessions, it looks very similar to the Batmobile of the superhero Batman. Tim says the car is one of a kind and Amber says that they are "Batty" about it.

      • Nitpick: Tim Lake, disguised as Bad Brain pretending to be Superman, is more than a stretch. Tim Lake has a much heavier build than Bad Brain, and Bad Brain is much more slender yet taller than Superman. Bad Brain and Lake also have brown hair, but he doesn't wear a wig.

      • The lost arms of Venus de Milos were also in Lex Luthor's secret collection in "The Foundling" episode.

      • Nitpick: When they cage Lois, then later they cage Superman looks like they swapped cages. But perhaps they moved the cages themselves to make their position within the gallery more aesthetically pleasing to the Lakes.

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (9)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Lois and Clark watch an episode of a show very similar in format and host to the real show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous while researching the Lakes.

      • Dream Sequences

        This episode opens with a parody of I Love Lucy with Clark playing the part of Ricky, Lois playing the part of Lucy, and Martha and Jonathan playing the parts of Fred and Ethel. In a later dream sequence, Clark fills the role of James Bond, the suave super-spy who can defeat any villain and get any girl. Lois plays Miss Goodbottom, and has a typical "Bond girl" name which can have sexual connotations. In the final dream sequence, Perry and Jimmy are policemen grilling "Clark the absentee father" in a parody of the cop show Dragnet, whose Sgt Joe Friday was famous for his monotone way of speaking.

      • Title "Don't Tug on Superman's Cape"
        This is taken from the song "You Don't Mess Around with Jim" by Jim Croce. "You don't tug on Superman's cape,
        you don't spit into the wind,
        you don't pull the mask of the Old Lone Ranger,
        and you don't mess around with Jim."
