    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Richard: Halt! This area is restricted on the authority of the United States government!
        Brock: I work for the government.
        Richard: Uh...still, you're not coming in here.

      • Dr. Venture: Wait a minute, are you a hallucination?
        Brock: Afraid not, Doc.
        Dr. Venture: What, did you miss me? What the hell are you doing here?
        Brock: Hank's a bomb...long story.

      • Dr. Venture: Oh, great, Venture! Thousands of square miles of empty arctic wasteland and you somehow manage to step in the one spot of yellow snow!

      • Hank: Dude, what is with you!? Why are you so calm about this?!?
        Dean: Because, Hank, we're not just any poor suckers, we're the Venture Brothers. Our dad's a super genius, with, like, chemistry stuff. He can fix this no prob.
        Brock: Dean, we don't even know where your dad is. He's sequestered in some secret think tank, and this is, well, this is kinda outta his league, honestly...
        Dean: We're all gonna die!!!

      • Hank: Nice spyclothes, douche
        Dean: What? I didn't have any black, I figured cowboy - next best thing to spies, right?

      • Dean: Brock, I think I figured out why the plane crashed - there were skeletons driving it!

      • Hank: Hey Brock, how would you (kill me)?
        Brock: You're asleep. Quick jerk of the neck. Never feel a thing.
        Hank: You've thought about this.
        Brock: Yes I have.

      • Hank: Cool! I'm not going to explode anymore. And plus - free invisible mom.
        Hank and Dean: Go Team Venture!

      • Mr. White: It's like wearing nothing at all. Like a second skin.
        Dr. Venture: Ummm, you've got a little something brown on your nose.

    • NOTES (9)

      • The Impossible Family are obvious spoofs of the Fantastic Four. Even the car used by Richard Impossible to drop off Dr. Venture is a knockoff of the Fantastic Four's classic "Fantasticar."

      • Just before Professor Impossible enters, Dr. Venture is doodling on a piece of paper. It only comes up for a moment, but you can see it. You can see the following snippets, most accompanied by pictures: Joy Cube, Joy Can (with the word "Bad" next to it), The Momy Place, Dean, and a rather unflattering doodle of Professor Impossible, "Company Policy, blah blah, company policy!"

      • Race Bannon's "License to Kill" displays the following:
        No. 09268-2722-561
        Name Race Bannon
        Clearance Level 9

      • Race Bannon was a regular cast member of Johnny Quest, one of the shows that the Venture Brothers spoofs.

      • When Dr. Impossible's wife finds Dr. Venture in the snow, the music from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance plays.

      • Monarch and Doctor Girlfriend do not appear in this episode.

      • Ratings: finally The Venture Brothers makes the top 3 for Saturday with 290,000.

      • The snake garbed men Race Bannon defeats are a cross between two Marvel Comics villain organizations, HYDRA and the Serpent Society. In addition, the term "Snake Men" has been used by He-Man and the Masters of the Universe since such characters were first introduced to the original toyline in the mid 80's.

      • Master Billy Quizboy, Mr. White, and Professor Impossible first appeared in The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay where they were credited as "Hydrocephalic Child Scientist", "Albino Scientist", and "Solar Powered Car Scientist," respectively.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Suits
        The suits designed by Professor Impossible feature a letter i enclosed in a circle logo similar to the super hero costumes in Disney's Pixar Animation Studios 2004 film, The Incredibles. Also the suits themselves are of the same design with the only difference being Professor Impossible's suits are blue with white gloves and black boots and The Incredibles' are red with black gloves and boots.
