Trivia: When we first see General Treister in his office, he is reading The Venture Home News.
Dr. Venture: All right, people, we launch at 2100 hours. Synchronize watches. At my mark it'll be 17:01. No, 17:02... 03... 04--wait, that's way too fast. What? Oh, I had it in stopwatch mode. The time is now... Tetris? Never mind.
Henchman 21: Uh, let me guess--SPHINX headquarters?
Shoreleave: Was it the giant sphinx?
Henchman 21: No. Place smells like out-of-work O.S.I. d-bags.
Shoreleave: I love it when you get all toughie-pants. Whoops! Oh, I think I'm chubbing up.
General Treister: You know dang well I'm talkin' about Monstroso! That plumb-sized Hans Brinker's got his thumbs all stuck up in the Guild's Christmas pie. That makes whatever plums he pulls out--ploink!--OSI business.
Hunter Gathers: Little Jack Horner. Hans Brinker's thumb was stuck in a dyke.
General Treister: Son, whatever depravity you get up to on your own time is between you and your living God.
Brock: I'll take care of this. This has been a long time coming. Me and her got to get something straight between us.
The Alchemist: You think he even knows how many double entendres that was?
Music: Jacket (written and produced by Doc Hammer, performed by Shallow Gravy), Like a Friend (Pulp)

Shoreleave: He's like a little Braveheart.
Referencing the 1995 movie based on the life of life of Sir William Wallace Mel Gibson, the 13th century Scottish knight who opposed King Edwards I in the First Scottish War of Independence. Gibson and his Scottish soldiers wears kilts throughout the film, despite the fact that historically, Scotsmen did not wear kilts, particularly in the style shown in the movie.
The Alchemist: All righty there, Major Dad.
Referencing the CBS series (1989-1993), with Major John D. McGillis as a career Marine officer who falls in love with, and marries, a liberal journalist. Much of the show's humors derived from McGillis dealing with his wife and three stepdaughters, often in typical military style.
Dr. Orpheus: Is it Bruce Willis?
Referencing Bruce Willis' role in the 1999 movie The Sixth Sense, where Cole Sear is a young boy who claims he can see ghosts, and Willis' character is the psychologist who tries to help him.
