  • Jack and the Scotsman....and his wife

    Well when this aired, I was excited to see the Scotsman again though I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the episode. There wasn't as much quick-fire humor in it as there was in the first Scotsman episode, though there were a few laughs. The first half consists of Jack reuniting with the Scotsman and meeting his brethren, the second half consists of Jack and the Scotsman "rescuing" his wife.

    The second half is certainly more entertaining than the first. Seeing the wife for the first time had me in crutches, particularly Jack's disgust and the Scotsman's Joy. We got to see a bit of action towards the end where Jack and the Scotsman fight off a horde of "Celtic demon" robots, only to have the boss show up who makes the mistake of calling the wife fat. In response, the wife tears up the remainder of the horde with her bare hands.

    The peak of the episode was probably when she ripped the face off of one of the robots to reveal the metal brain and eyeballs looking back at her, before she punched those in and tossed em to the side. The type of gore you can get away with by just making them into robots...just genius.

    Another one of the weaker episodes of the second season, though still entertaining. Honestly, it just makes me want to watch the first Scotsman episode again, ha.moreless
  • The Scotsman is back!

    Aren't we all glad to see him back? he's one of the best SJ characters ( one of the few that actually returns )But he needs help from Jack, Apparently his " beautiful " wife has been captured and taken away, and he can't get to her because of all the robo-demons around the building, but Jack can't just go and help The Scotsman because he has to pass the " man " test, And of course all of The Scotsmans friends insult Jack because of his clothes and whatnot, this episode is funny and very awesome! Of course with The Scotsman, you can never go wrong, Of course I do prefer the first episode of The Scotsman over this one, But this is still great and very enjoyable to watch! =)moreless
  • Jack and the S-man back in action!

    This was a very fun 'buddy' episode. I especially like the all the scottish refernces like haggis and the stuffed animal heads on the clansmen's kilts.

    I really think it's funny that as formidable as Jack and the Scotsman are, the scot's wife is even moreso!! I'm glad we got to see more of the Scotsman in later episodes too!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The Scotsman's scabbard changes direction on his back several times throughout the episode as evidenced by which way the hilt is pointing and which hand he uses to pull out his sword.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Scotsman: Me Clan Druid rolled the bones. They said seek the help of a stranger. You're the only stranger I know, and you're as strange as they come, laddie.

    • Jack: And what is haggis?
      The Clan: Sheep's stomach stuffed with meat and barley!

    • Jack: Is your clan always that wild?
      Scotsman: Aye, that's why I never stay at home. I'm the mellow one.

    • Scotsman: But lovely lump, the druid said...
      Scotsman's Wife: The druid?!? Who listens to a man wearing an elk skull on his head?
      Scotsman: But he...
      Scotsman's Wife: Shut it!
      Scotsman: Yes, dear.

    • Scotsman's Wife: I've never been so humiliated in me blessed life! I have a gimbly old dullard for a husband and a scrawny tree for a sidekick! I'd be better off saving meself!

    • Boone: Destroy the men and throw the fat female in the pot.
      Scotsman's Wife: Fat? Fat? I'm not fat! I'm stout!

    • Jack: Seems we must find an alternate way out.
      Scotsman: Why?
      Jack: The door is so very small and your wife is so very...
      Scotsman's Wife: What?
      Scotsman: Run! Don't squash him, muffin. He's a friend of mine!

  • NOTES (2)

    • As noted for "Jack and the Scotsman Part I", the Scotsman's machine-gun peg-leg would have a very intense kickback, and if he fired it while standing on one leg, he'd probably fall over and possibly break his other leg. While in Part I he only ever fired it while in the air, in this episode he indeed fires it while standing on one leg and doesn't suffer any ill-effects as he should.

    • The scene where Jack must out-throw the large clansman, but resorts to throwing him into his own rock, is similar in cadence to a scene in Braveheart where William Wallace (Mel Gibson) is forced to outdo his childhood friend in a rock throwing contest, but resorts to throwing a rock at him instead.

    • About mid-episode, just after Jack passes the clan's test, the Scotsman is carrying Jack into the hills and in the background swimming through the water behind the castle is the Loch Ness Monster, a famous Scottish myth.
