    • QUOTES (6)

      • Dr. Venture: (looking at Hank's job list) Well, at least you crossed out Mafia Don, fire eater, traveling racecar salesman, and my favorite--gigolo.
        Hank: Once I found out it had nothing to do with Italian ice cream, it lost its allure.

      • Sgt. Hatred: All right, we got to get going. I don't want to have to fly at night in the X-1. I get the lights mixed up with the lasers, and I ended up blowing stuff up. I--I--I just don't want to blow stuff up 'cause I can't see.

      • Hank: You gonna come in, or are you looking for studs in the wall?
        The Alchemist: If I thought there were studs here, I wouldn't be sitting outside trying to get a snack from Cafe Hank.

      • The Alchemist: Ah, the old private-dick game. I'm more public and less private about the dick game these days, but because I'm bored out of my gourd, let's hear the case.

      • The Alchemist: Well, you have to solve this case! That's what the sign is for! That's why you have the hat! That's why you have the whip! Wait. Why do you have a whip?
        Hank: Came with the hat. It's a detective's whip.

      • Dermott: You're a superhero guy and you're hanging out with Hank?
        The Alchemist: Look, Pudgy McTalk-a-lot, I just got dumped by my lover who then tossed me out on my jobless ass, so I had to move in with my boring team member who lives in the 'burbs and never does squat! And i just--I just told you too much, didn't I?
        Dermott: Uhh, dude, no *bleep*

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Title:
        Referencing Everybody Goes to Rick's, the original title of the movie that would become Casablanca (1942). When the studio decided to recast Humphrey Bogart as Rick (replacing Ronald Reagan, they changed the name of the movie.

      • Hank: Get your ass to Mars.
        Referencing the movie Total Recall (1990), where construction worker Douglas Quaid discovers he's had his memories wiped and replaced, and he's actually a freedom fighter named Hauser. Hauser pre-records a message to himself telling him to go to Mars, saying the same line as Hank does here.
