    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • After Colin accidentally burns his hand with the hot coffee in Helping Hands, Ryan catches on to it and starts screaming in pain. This causes Colin to wave his hands hysterically to keep in character. While doing so, his scalded hand swipes a glass of orange juice Kathy is holding, spilling it, causing the glass to fall and possibly break. The noise it makes may have been breaking glass or just the glass falling onto plates, forks, etc.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (in Hoedown)
        Wayne: I could be Siegfried and LeRoy!

        Drew: If you take my rhyme again, I'm gonna saw your ass in half!

      • Drew: The points are so worthless, they might as well end in 'dot-com.'

      • (after Party Quirks)
        Drew: Wayne's got a tickly butt!
        Wayne: Yes, I have a tickly butt.
        Drew: Ever since Colin's found that out, man, every chance he gets, he's...
        Ryan: Not only on the show...

      • (after Helping Hands)
        Colin: It really is quite hot.
        Drew: I saw steam coming up from that.
        Colin: Yeah!
        Drew: You know, this is how crazy I am. Watching that, I thought--I was wondering why Ryan wasn't screaming when the coffee hit his hand.
        Ryan: Well, a week from now, people will ask me, 'Did it hurt when you poured coffee on yourself?'
        Drew: Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'm saying, 'Why isn't Colin saying 'Ow?'' I forgot that Colin had his hands there. I thought Ryan was...
        Colin: I had my mouth in his back, screaming.
        Drew: I thought Ryan would be going, 'Ooohhh! My hand!' 'Cause I thought, 'Ryan, are you okay?' when you poured that...
        Ryan: I didn't feel a thing.
        Drew: Well, it looks like The Tickler will be out of action for quite some time.

      • (after Living Scenery)
        Drew: That drying-him-off thing was like, uh, just...I'm going to have trouble sleeping tonight.
        Wayne: Me too.

    • NOTES (6)

      • Believe it or not, there actually sort of was an evil Batman villain known as The Tickler before this episode was made. There is a CD collection of various songs and spoken word stories that were realized over the years to capitalize on the popularity of the Adam West Batman TV series. "Batmania: Music Inspired By The Batman TV Series," featured West, Burt Ward, Frank Gorshin, and Burgess Meredith all reprising their characters. One track on this CD, simply called "Batman And Robin," is in story format. Basically, it is a small episode of the TV series told in words, music, and a chorus periodically breaking into the action. The Dynamic Duo are chasing "the evil Tickler" whose calling card is to give those victims of his crimes a reddish hue. Unfortunately, in a typical, more Riddler-esque explanation, it is claimed that they were "tickled pink." When originally released in England in the mid 1970's, it was the B side of the record containing "The Story Of Batman" on Side A.

      • Here's a strange one. During the Credits Roll, Colin is reading the credits as the Evil Tickler. At the end, Ryan turns the tables and reaches out to tickle Colin's behind. He pauses, turns to Ryan and says, "THAT WAS MY-" And his words are cut short. Either by himself or by editors/censors. What did he say?

      • In the past, the show has revealed intimate knowledge about Wayne. In this episode, we learn he's ticklish, especially in the buttocks.

      • During Hoedown, Wayne apparently stole Drew's rhyme. Drew takes him to task over it with his verses. After Drew is done, Ryan thanks him sarcastically, so, it seems that Drew also stole Ryan's rhyme!

      • Colin burned his hand on hot coffee during Helping Hands.

      • Wayne was indeed one half of an act called "Siegfried and LeRoy" in an episode of his variety series likely taped after this episode. Here.
