    This has to be one of the funniest episodes I've seen thus far. [SPOILERS AFTER THIS POINT] Nathan drives the murdercycle while totally drunk, and Murderface trys to sing while standing, he hit his face and slid for a few hundred feet on the pavement.



    He then hunts through a Christian Rock show where Toki kills the lead singer of the band. Then he shows up at an atheist church where he witnesses the battle between the atheists and the agnostics. Then he joins up with satanism and decides [major spoiler] that all religions are the same and returns to his alcohaulism.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • This episode marks the first time the elderly man who seems to be the apparent head of the tribunal group is mentioned by name. He is Mr. Selatcia.

    • This marks the first time tribunal members are seen outside of their government setting. General Krosier and the Priest meet dressed as civilians at the Burzums restaurant which Dethklok took their parents to in the episode "Dethfam".

    • This is the first time we see the Murdercycle in an episode rather than it just being shown during the opening credits.

    • The sidecar seating arrangement for the Murdercycle when Nathan is driving back from the bar is different than what is shown in the opening titles. In the opening titles (from the viewer's perspective) Toki and Pickles are to the left, with Nathan in the center, and Murderface and Skwisgaar to the right. In order to have his accident, Murderface is seated in the farthest left sidecar, which according to the opening credits, would have been Toki's.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nathan Explosion: So, where are we now?
      Pickles the Drummer: This is the church of the atheists. They don't, uh, believe in God.
      Nathan Explosion: Oh, like Toki and Skwisgaar?
      Skwisgaar Skwigelf: No, we are nihilists? We don't believe in anything.
      Nathan Explosion: But can't nihilists also... not... believe in god... too?
      Skwisgaar Skwigelf: Well, I, uh... I don't know.

    • Skwisgaar Skwigelf: (listening to Christian rock band) Whoa. There is no God. Just listen to his guitar.

    • (Toki is kneeling in prayer before the priest at the Church of Satan)
      Priest: (to Toki) Pray now the prayer of revenge. From whom do you seek revenge?
      Toki: I seek revenge on Rachael Ray and the Food Network. Can't you make her... eyes fall out or something? ...Tits fall off?
      Priest: Satan, grant this man to get the revenge against his foes at the Food Network.
      Toki: Seriously?
      Priest: Yes.
      Toki: S-seriously?
      Priest: Yes.
      Toki: Really?
      Priest: Yes.
      Toki: (in amazement) That's cooool.

    • Murderface: (lying on his hospital bed) Yeah, I guess I'm lucky to be alive, huh? (speaking calmly and reflectively) I mean, you know, I, do I really deserve to be here right now?
      Pickles: Okaaaaay...
      Nathan: (throwing his hands in front of his face) AHHHHHHHH!! I did this to you! (throwing arms around Murderface's neck and begins accidentally strangling him then releases his hold) I was driving the Murdercycle!!! It should be me.. there.. still alive, with all those gifts. I'm sorry. I'M SORRY!! (throws his hands in front of his face again and then punches the wall; accidentally knocking a vase of black roses from the upper shelf down onto Murderface as he yelps in pain) I'm sorry!

    • (the rest of the band is visiting Murderface at the hospital following his accident)
      Murderface: (unwrapping Nathan's gift) Ohhh! A bass.
      Nathan: Yeah, I figured, you know, you play bass, so...
      Murderface: Oh, thanks. Thank you. Just put that over there. (drops the bass in a pile of other identical bass guitars)

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • In the beginning of the episode, while the band is in the bar, the owner/manager asks them to leave. If you look, there is a neon sign behind him that reads "Zazz Beer". This could be a possible reference to Skwisklok where the band told Skwisgaar to "zazz" up his pay-per-view several times during the episode.
