Pete Hutter: When fleeing, I suggest you follow the fly to the fleet that knows how to flee the fastest -- and that would be me.
President: Gentlemen, how can I thank you?
Brisco: Well, sir, you could start with a Presidential Pardon.
Bowler: How about a raise?
President: (laughing) That's very funny, Mr. Bowler: a raise. Very funny indeed!
Bowler: What's funny about it?
Pete: I scoff at your moronic interpretation of hoosegow architecture!
In one in-joke scene, Bradshaw and his fellow football players, playing bounty hunters, chase Brisco through a street filled with obstacles that bear a suspicious resemblence to a football training field.
March's gang of bounty hunters are all played by football players: appropriately enough since March is played by football legend Terry Bradshaw.
Marsh: Falco, I read your book.
Marsh makes one of several allusions to lines spoken by George C. Scott in the movie Patton (1970).
Pete: Rumors of my demise by performation have been greatly exaggerated.
Pete Hutter alludes to Mark Twain's "The report of my death was an exaggeration." from 1897.
Dueling air guitars
Pete and Viva pass the time in their cell acting out the famous "Dueling Banjos" song from Deliverance (1972)
Brisco: A lead zeppelin. Might just be your stairway to heaven!
A reference to the band Led Zeppelin, and to the band's best-known song.
