    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The suit is fireproof and bulletproof, but it does not appear to be waterproof; when Ralph lands in Toby's swimming pool, the suit gets soaking wet.

      • Ralph is performing a death defying magic trick. He is submersed in a giant tank filled with water and wrapped up tight with chains. He's wearing the suit and eventually turns invisible to fool the audience into thinking he's escaped. Fair enough, but what strikes me as strange is Bill and Pam are backstage - and they look positivly worried sick. I seem to remember that Ralph stopped a nuclear missile in one episode. Strange that his partners are so worried about him in this instance. :oD

        Note: Pam was worried because the suit had never been tested for it's effect on how long Ralph could survive underwater.

      • Bill: (re costume for magicians' ball) You hate me! Counsellor, how could you put me in this thing? I look like the prize doodad out of a crackerjack box! You know what's going to happen to me down at the bureau if they find out about this?
        Pam: Bill, everyone is going to be in costume.
        Bill: (fiddling with imitation parrot on his shoulder, which keeps falling down) Look at this dead duck I got here. No matter how many times he's been through this, and I'm sure it's a lot, he's still embarrassed about it. See that?
        Pam: (mock pirate accent) You look great, me hearty.
