Hank Venture/The Monarch
Dr. Thaddius S. "Rusty" Venture
Hunter Gathers/OSI Agent/Additional voices
Dr. Byron Orpheus
According to a deleted scene, Brock already thought Colonel Hunters had been dead for some time.
Trivia: Brock has one brother and it's implied that Brock never knew his father.
Trivia: When Hank takes the machete off the wall, you can see the Aztec calendar hanging above it that Hector used to save Jonas Venture Sr. during the flashback in Powerless in the Face of Death. DVD commentary comfirms this.
Trivia: Brock's mission to protect Dr. Venture and his family is code name Operation: Rusty's Blanket.
When Brock enters the room with a comatose Col. Gathers and a surgeon walking in, we see Gathers' chest sticking out uncovered, in plain sight. However in the next scene, we see sheets are covering his chest then Brock lifts the sheets and then begins to notice.
Hank & Dean's Bedroom
Hank has three posters of female athletes above his bed in their bedroom. We see him take down two of the three; IRL IndyCar driver Danica Patrick and Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Retton. Tennis pro Maria Sharapova is the third. Only Mary Lou Retton is mentioned by name by Dean. At the end we see the posters back up on the wall.
Though her name is not mentioned, we meet Trianna's techno friend Kim.
Brock: Where's Hank?
Dr. Venture: Up in his room. Our little man is grounded.
Brock: What'd he do?
Dr. Venture: Get this, I'm working in the lab, right? And Hank sleepwalks in, hauls off and smacks me in the head with a papier-mache sword, pees his pants and passes out.
Hank: Dean, Dean, I sometimes forget you're younger than me.
Dean: By a lousy four minutes!
Hank: Well then, maybe in four minutes, you'll understand.
Molotov: Dragon, Eagle, Mantis, Monkey, Tiger, Snake, Leopard. These are called "The Maimers." Strike your enemy with one of these and he will be your enemy no more.
Brock: So no women and no children...
Hunter: No women, no children! There are rules...separates us from the baddies.
Brock: What if she's a double agent?
Brock: An assassin?
Brock: A double agent-assassin who just killed the President?
Hunter: Nonlethal take-down only! The President isn't the President anyway. You know that.
Brock: Oh yeah. Hey what about a...ya know? A lady Dracula?
Hunter: You mean...Le Vampier? Nosferatu?
Brock: Uhh yeah I guess.
Hunter: Undead! Not typically a woman anymore so...you got no beef there. Also fictitious...
Dr. Venture: After that rigmarole I could use a night cap. Care to join me? I've been squirreling away a bottle of cooking sherry for a special occasion. But this is cause enough for celebration. (Molotov stalks off) Some other time, then?
Dr. Orpheus: No, no, that sounds delightful! I'll get the glasses.
Hank: And you, my friend, are looking at a man!
Dean: You finally got'em?
Hank: A gentleman never asks and a lady never tells.
(Hank in a Chippendale outfit)
Dean: Why is my brother dressed like that?
Molotov: I didn't ask. I thought you two liked to dress like idiots.
Dr. Venture: So tell me, friend, you might know this. The whole Russian mail order bride deal on the Internet, is that on the up-and-up?
Molotov: I wouldn't know.
Dr. Venture: Because those Chinese ones are a real racket. The damn thing was already dead when the crate finally showed up.
Dean: Hank, we've got big problems. The Apaches are back!
Dean: Look! Teepee in your trunks!
Hank: My pants are haunted! My pants are haunted!
The World Leaders Entertainment logo at the end of this episode is a caricature of Napoleon Bonaparte on marionette strings.
The Monarch does not appear.
Plastic Surgeon: Your father! Your mother! Your father! Your mother! (He's your mother and your father...
Brock's "interrogation" of the plastic surgeon is a parody of a scene in Chinatown, where private detective J.J. Gittes (Jack Nicholson) tries to get suspect Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) to reveal her relationship with another woman, slapping her over and over while she keeps repeating, "She's my sister... She's my daughter..."
Hank's Assassination speech
When Hank is hallucinating that he must kill Dr. Venture, he quotes The Doors' song The End.
A lot of the stuff in the ending sequence (Brock going to kill Gathers and Hank going to kill Thaddius) is a reference to the Francis Ford Coppola film Apocalypse Now, including the music, which is similar to the song "The End" by the Doors, which is used in the opening sequence of the film. The dialogue between Hank and his father ("Father?" "Yes son" "I want to kill you") is a lyric from said song.
Brock's island contact
The scenes leading up to Brock's island contact with the bikini-clad woman refer to scenes from the James Bond movie Thunderball. These scenes include the conversation in the submarine where Brock is in the tuxedo and drinking wine, the use of a torpedo to travel to the island, and the line about passing the time.
Trianna's friend refers to Hank as "that Scooby Doo kid". This refers to Hank's physical resemblance to the Scooby Doo character, Freddy Jones.
Hank is opting for the black trouser, no shirt, cuffs, and bowtie look of the typical Chippendale Dancer. The Chippendales were established in 1979 and consist of attractive men going through simulated sexual routines for the entertainment of the ladies.
Brock's former superior
Col. "Hunter" Gathers is based on Hunter S Thompson, both in mannerisms and appearence, particularly Thompson's trademark cigarette holder.
