    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • It was incredibly conventient that the Scotsman was riding on the boat that Jack was serving on after such a short time for there to be "sandal tracks."

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The Ancient Mariner:
        The "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was an epic poem written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1798. In the poem, a cursed sailor tells his horrible story of a haunted voyage to a passerby (the sailor committed a horrible sin on the voyage, and is thus cursed to forever tell the story to whoever will listen); the poem is quite a hair-raiser, and it is anything but short (still, it is an excellent work of literature, which may explain why Jack liked it).

      • Many Speakers: The references to Star Wars (mostly Episode IV) are numerous.
        First, the Scotsman says "I have a bad feeling about this" before the fish men appear, a line quoted by at least one character in every Star Wars movie. Second, the Scotsman calls the seaport a "wretched hive of scum and villainy," just as Ben Kenobi describes Mos Eisley in Ep. IV. Third, the Scottsman's and Jack's bargaining with the ship captain is a lot like how Ben and Luke bargain with Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina in Ep. IV. Also, the bounty hunter that threatens the Scotsman at the beginning looks a lot like Greedo (again, from Ep. IV). (editor's note: and meets an equally ignominous fate. Also, at the beginning the camera pans across a bounty hunter who looks a lot like an armored Boba Fett.)
