    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Whip brings the ship toward the king, from Whip's viewpoint there's a bunch of trees and then a little clear space, and then the king, and a bunch of trees behind him. Then when the camera reverses angle over the king's shoulder, there's a fairly open field in front of him. Then Whip fires a missile and suddenly the area behind the king that he runs into has no trees whatsoever.

    • QUOTES (10)

    • NOTES (1)

      • Season two is of noticibly better image quality than season one. The computer graphics are more realistic thanks in part to the use of radiosity.

    • ALLUSIONS (11)

      • King: (while brandishing a big gun) Say hello to my little friend!
        This famous quote was shouted by Tony Montana (Al Pacino) in the movie Scarface while brandishing his M16 just before he launched a grenade from his M302.

      • Bob: Does anybody really care that they canceled Enterprise?
        Referencing the most recent Star Trek series, which aired on another channel and got canceled somewhat *ahem* prematurely.

        With the robe and pipe, alluding to Hugh Hefner of Playboy fame.

      • Bob: Would you like to play a game?

      • King: You're bigger then Jesus . . . but not the Beatles.
        Referencing John Lennon's famous line that the Beatles were more popular then Jesus, which he said in an interview in The Evening Standard on March 4, 1986.

        Referencing Sally Fields and her 1985 Oscar acceptance speech for Places in the Heart.

      • Hunt victims
        Among the "innocent" victims killed by the king are Dian Fossey and one of her gorillas, Muffit the robot daggit from the original Battlestar Galactica (now a SciFi Channel property), E.T. and Elliot from E.T. – The Extraterrestrial, and Yoda from the Star Wars movies.

      • Mary Kate/Ashley
