Hank Venture/The Monarch
Dr. Thaddius S. "Rusty" Venture
Tigeriffic/Therapist/Prison Guard 2
Mister Monday/King Gorilla/Henchman 24/Watch/Additional Voices
Dr. Jonas Venture Jr./The Phantom Limb
Clone Slug Dean
Trivia: Since Dr. Venture cloned the boys, it stands to reason that Hank and Dean now each have both their kidneys again, rectifying Dr. Venture's actions in "Dia de los Dangerous." Also, the "enhancements" Billy hooked Dean up with in "Are You There God? It's me, Dean" wouldn't have carried over to the clone, so he's out of luck there.
At the church, the man in the blue shirt and black pants called the blonde-haired man Charlie even though his nametag said "Herman."
In the church, the henchman who had blonde hair, a brown coat, and a green shirt, his nametag was black for a few scenes then the nametag turned red.
In the scene where the Monarch is taken away by the prison guards, King hesitates to save him but does so after a few seconds. What changed his mind was "love", it was the look in Monarch's eyes when he mentioned Dr. Girlfriend while being subdued. But how could King see the Monarch's eyes, or anything else about him, with King's back turned and eyes closed?

Monarch: Huh, hey, hey! What the fu...? Are you raping me!
King: Uh, no, well I was gonna...
Monarch: Gonna! What the f(beep)n King!
King: Well I just couldn't get it up. (Monarch covers ears and starts mumbling). You look just too much like a girl, I couldn't get into it(Monarch stops mumbling).
Monarch: Hey, waita... wha? This isn't even my cell! What, did you take me back to your place!
King: Well I got porn here... it helps.
(Monarch storms out the cell mumbling again)
Dr. Venture: No! No! I don't want to go! I'm not done finding myself!
Brock: You've got to!
Dr. Venture: No, please! Brock, I feel amazing! I never want tonight to end!
Brock: You can't run away from your life forever Doc!
Dr. Venture: This is my life now, mom! Deal with it!
Brock: You've got responsibilities at home! The bills are stacking up and you have to deal with what happened to the boys!
Dr. Venture: Screw the boys! I want to stay here with my new family and their feel good candy!
Brock: You've had your fun Doc, it's time! (Brock injects a needle into Dr. Venture's neck).
Dr. Venture: No! Brock, no! This is Skye! We're going to have a child! Pleeeaaaseearrrrr! (Dr. Venture collapses on the floor unconscious)
Dr. Orpheus: (on raising the dead) Don't worry pumpkin, Daddy does this all the time! Evel Knievel, David Blaine, both of them were daddy's clients. Even Ronald Reagan, until he bounced a check.
Dr. Orpheus: (referring to Dean and Hank) I did this... I let this happen to them... The boys were in my charge and I failed!
Brock: It's not your fault. These things happen.
Dr. Orpheus: What is it with you people! Those children were cut down in their prime and my negligence is to blame. Hate me!
Brock: Alright, fine, I hate you. Hey, are you hungry? I'm thinking about making grilled cheese.
Dr. Orpheus: I accept your hatred!
Jonas Venture Jr.: Did you bring your bi-kini?
J.J.'s Ride to the Marina: One for me, and one for Colette.
Jonas Venture Jr.: Go,Team Venture!
Henchman 21: Man, I can't believe that's what you look like under your costume. Hilarious! You look like Seinfeld with a unibrow. Who knew?
Henchman 24: You should talk - all Kevin Smith. Oh, and here's a tip, a beard is no substitute for a jawline, no matter how you trim it!
Henchman 21: You haven't changed...same old Twenty-Four.
(both pause and stare at one another)
Henchman 21: This is weird!
Dr. Venture: Look, if you have a clumsy child, you make him wear a helmet. If you have death-prone children, you keep a few clones of them in your lab!
Dr. Orpheus: But Hank, no, Hank is quite upset. Rage, I can hear his rage. He calls you a crumb bum. Or maybe a crampon. It's hard to hear him.
Brock: Isn't a crampon a little hook for mountain climbing?
Dr. Venture: He's definitely calling me a crumb bum.
Dr. Orpheus: I don't want to worry you with the particulars, but I am a necromancer by trade. You know what that means, don't you?
Brock: You have sex with dead people?
Dr. Orpheus: Phile. Necrophile! A necromancer can bring the dead...to life!
Doc and Jackson spent one-eighth of this episode's budget just to secure the license to the song Everybody's Free (To Feel Good) by Aquagen f/ Rozalla, which was used in the opening scene.
The opening credits feature Dr. Venture and a miniature Jonas Venture Jr. running along as the Venture boys usually do. Dr. Venture, Jonas Venture, and Brock are identified by name, as is Doctor Orpheus and H.E.L.P.eR.
Viewers could see this episode at Adult Swim's website as part of Friday Night Fix before it officially premiered Sunday, June 25th, 2006 during Adult Swim's regular programming.
Doctor Orpheus: I'm trying to find the souls of two innocents. One, Dean, has rust-color hair... the other Hank is toe-headed.
This is a reference to the 1983 movie Something Wicked This Way Comes based on the novel of the same name by Ray Bradbury. In the movie, the sinister Mister Dark is searching for two boys by asking town folk of the small mid-West town the story is set in. He refers to the blond boy as "toe headed". Then a few moments later, Dark shows portraits of the boys that are tattooed on his palms, the same as Orpheus as he says these lines.
Hector is supposed to be The Venture Brother's version of Hadji from Johnny Quest.
The Monarch in jail
When the Monarch is collecting the items from the other inmates to use in his escape, the music that plays is similar to the music featured in the HBO series Oz.
At the start of the opening scene, we see the "new" Venture Bros. running, eventually Thaddius stumbles over but is back on his feet. That one scene is similar to a scene in the Fullmetal Alchemist opening "Ready Steady Go!" where Ed and Al are running then Ed almost stumbling over.
Dr. Venture in the jungle
Dr Venture's scene in the jungle, near the beginning, is copied from a scene in Duran Duran's video for "Hungry Like the Wolf."
Dr. Venture: Fine, like in that Jeff Goldblum movie?
Referencing the 1986 movie The Fly, starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis, which in itself is a remake of the 1958 film starring Vincent Price, who bears a startling resemblence to Dr. Orpheus.
Shirt: Porkchop sandwiches
A reference to the GI Joe PSAs that were redubbed by the website Fensler Films.
