Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Bob: (Softly) I don't wanna seem insensitive but...(Raises voice)...next thing you'll be telling me there isn't a User!

    • Mike: "First on the scene, your reporter--Mike the TV! We are here at the site of the latest in a series of terrible abductions. This time, an innocent numeral, Number Five! Tell the viewers, in your own words, what you saw."
      Woman Binome: "But I didn't see anything."
      Mike: "So there you have it! An invisible assailant! Or, did I just interview the wrong person? You, the viewers decide!"

    • Bob: Let me get this straight: There's a web creature, posing as Mouse, abducting sprites. For what purpose?
      Fax Modem: I haven't quite figured that out yet.
      Bob: Okay, and Guardians are control-freaks, willing to sacrifice the lives of the very people they're sworn to protect, by dropping games on them? Let me ask you: Did Phong interview you personally for this job? Didn't think so.

    • Mike: (Delusional) IT WAS THE LIGHT, I TELL YOU!! THE LIGHT SAVED ME!! OH, TELL ME THE CAMERA WAS ROLLING!!

    • Bob: Is your partner COMPLETELY random?
      Data Nully: Not completely.

  • NOTES (12)

    • In the scene just after the one in which the mother binome is rocking her baby, the penguin from the movie "The Wrong Trousers" is seen walking down the sidewalk. He also appears in "Identity Crisis, Part 2," and "Web World Wars."

    • There's a translucent ReBoot logo in the bottom right corner of the vid window during one of Mike's interviews.

    • The milk carton Mike holds up during one interview has both "Milk" and "Lait" [french] written on it.

    • The character of Data Nully is voiced by none other then Gillian Anderson, who was a big fan of ReBoot. She was asked to do a voice and accepted.

    • Fax Modem: I remember when I was only a node and I was reading Comic Bytes in bed.

      A node is a baby sprite.

    • When Mouse entered Dot's Diner at the beginning of the episode, her communicator is not on her left arm.

    • When Mouse was calling for help from the Guardians, her communicator wasn't visible.

    • Why did Mouse hesitate before freeing Dot?

    • When Bob resurfaces out of Level 31 when the Web Creature is about to create a web portal, and when it shows some of the town members, you can see the penguin from the "Wallace and Gromit" series. (Appears more than once in the show; Specifically, "The Wrong Trousers")

    • Data Nully and Fax Modem are spoofs of the X-Files characters, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

    • When the web creature turns the tear into a portal, watch closely. There is a scene that shows the citizens of Mainframe walking on the sidewalk. One of the citizens is a penguin who was the villain in the British claymation, Wallace and Grommit.

    • In the scene where Bob is talking to the Al's waiter. If you look over at the counter closely when he is skating, you can see Homer Simpson in 3-D sitting there on a stool.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The Scottish accented Miss Brodie as Enzo's teacher is a reference to "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie", a novel by Muriel Spark about the life of an eccentric schoolteacher in Edinburgh during the 1930's. It also became a highly succesaful stage play and an Oscar winning movie in 1970 with Dame Maggie Smith playing the lead

    • The two new agents are parodies of Mulder and Scully from the X-Files.
