    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Dr. Venture reminisces about how much a help H.E.L.P.eR. has been, one of the scenes (the one where H.E.L.P.eR. hugs Brock) is from the episode "Mid-Life Chrysalis" which aired AFTER Home Insecurity.

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Baron Ünderbheit: You have to give me this one. I've loathed Venture ever since college.
        The Monarch: Oh, who hasn't, Ünderpants? What makes your case so special?
        (Ünderbheit groans, points to his metal jaw)
        The Monarch: Wow, you mean he did that? How?
        Baron Ünderbheit: Where I come from, a lab partnership is a sacred trust. One is always suppose to look out for one's lab partner. Venture did not.
        The Monarch: Fine, fine. But you have to understand you can't waltz into the middle of a delicate, high-stakes chess tournament and yell, "King me!" 'cause he bitched up your face.

      • Brock: You coulda told me that Sasquatch was a...a dude.
        Summers: Huh? What, you couldn't tell?
        Brock: Not until I had to (shudders) shave him.

      • Dr. Girlfriend: He's late.
        The Monarch: Royalty. That's how they are.
        (He drinks the soda in his cup, and spits it back out.)
        The Monarch: What is this, Diet? Why did you get Diet?!
        Dr. Girlfriend: I didn't.
        The Monarch: Taste this then!
        Dr. Girlfriend: (sips the cup) Okay, I might have grabbed the wrong bottle at the supermarket.
        The Monarch: How do you do that!? How can you not tell the difference?! God, it's like having my Dad do the shopping!

      • Dean: There's something out there, and it's made of metal, and it has Dad's face, and it wants to beat me up! This is just like my dream.
        Hank: Yeah, but did you get the first aid kit?
        Dr. Venture: I don't need first aid, Hank, I need you to stop choking me and hitting me with fire extinguishers.

      • Summers: Sasquatch doesn't have anything you haven't seen before.
        Brock: Sasquatch is something I haven't seen before!

      • Soldier #2: Who was that?
        Soldier #1: Brock f***in' Samson!
        Soldier #2: No way – dibs on his cigarette butt!

      • (phone rings)
        Monarch: Ah, Somebody loves the Monarch!

      • Baron Ünderbheit: Catclops! What have you to report?
        Catclops: Tourism has skyrocketed at the Well of Bitter Sorrows and the Ünderbheit Birth Crevasse since you enacted the mandatory attendance edict.
        Baron Ünderbheit: Told you. Girl Hitler?
        Girl Hitler: Benzene chewables have doubled production in ze child slave mines. Dilly-dallying saw a brief spike, but ve stabilized it by removing ze feet of the alpha males, Und de popular girls!
        Baron Ünderbheit: Good! Good!

      • Monarch: Wait a minute! How do I get a (cue dramatic music)... outside line!

      • Hank: But Pop, you're bleeding!
        Dr. Venture: Uh? Oh, this. Uh, no, it's fairly common for some men to lactate involuntarily in situations of extreme stress.

      • Dr. Venture: Right now G.U.A.R.D.O., doesn't know you or me from a squad of Snake People hopped up on PCP.

      • Hank: H.E.L.P.eR.'s done it.
        Hank and Dean: Go Team H.E.L.P.eR.!

      • Brock: Bionic, huh? Let's see how much. (kicks him in groin)
        Steve Summers: Ughhh. Right in my ...Cape Canaverals.

      • Summers: True, I was barely alive after my test ship broke up. But the Army saved me. It spent $6 million dollars to give me all-new bionic parts. Made me stronger, better, faster then I was. And you know what they did? They put me to work! They expected me to pay it all back! Do you know how long $6 million bucks takes to pay off on a government salary?!?

      • Monarch: Venture and I have been engaged in a deadly game of cat and also-cat for years!

    • NOTES (2)

      • The music Brock is listening to while driving to the mountains is supposed to sound like Led Zeppelin.

      • Four new bad guys are introduced: Baron Underbheit and three of his henchmen, Catclops, Girl Hitler, and Manic 8-Ball. Although it is unsure if the last 3 mentioned will return.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Steve Summers and Sasquatch:
        "Steve Summers" is a clear parody of the original Six Million Dollar Man - Steve Austin (the "bionic woman" in the spinoff was Jaime Summers, hence the last name). Accompanied by slow-motion camera action and *whooshing* noise to simulate superpowers, Austin worked for a secret government agency and put his super-strength and vision to good use. For whatever reasons, Austin kept running into Bigfoot (who was the pawn of evil aliens), hence the Sasquatch gag here.
