    • Brock: He's not going to do anything. It's hallowed ground.
      Unless it's some kind of Guild of Calamitous Intent thing, Baron Underbheit must be a Highlander fan, since no fighting on hollowed ground is one of the Immortals' rules. Since a lot of the episode is in flashback, which was another big Highlander thing, there seem to be several riffs on that series. And finally, Col. Gentleman sounds suspiciously like Sean Connery, who played Ramirez in the first two Highlander (even if his character here is more like Sir Allen Quartermain from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen).
