    • TRIVIA: Max hints that Michael watches the Mel Gibson film Braveheart over and over again and in the previous episode Michael was shown watching it.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Michael: This is a private conversation!

    • Max: How many times can you watch that thing?
      Michael: I'm still trying to get an accurate body count.

    • Valenti: So you skipped school. Missing class is excusable if it involves saving a planet - yours, mine, or any other. It is not acceptable if it is done in the name of under-age gambling. Is that clear? Each one of your parents is going to hear from me later today. I expect you back in Roswell this afternoon. Kyle, get in the car.
      Kyle: But I was up $1600.
      Valenti: Now!

    • Maria: I was auditioning to be a stripper! Little innocent me.
      Michael: You get the job?

    • Michael: I'm glad I'm an orphan.
      Tess: Yeah, me too.
      Valenti: Tess! Don't make me come back in there!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Kyle: Actually Buddha himself first coined the phrase "know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away and know when to run".

      These are actually lyrics from the Kenny Rogers' song called The Gambler.

    • Title: Viva Las Vegas

      This is a reference to both a 1964 movie and a song "Viva Las Vegas"; Elvis Presley starred in the movie and sang the song.
