Episode Quotes
Marshall: The only guy we have left is Sark and that's only because he's in custody. I hate that guy, I mean, really, kinda scares... although I did go visit him... twice... just to see a familiar face. We had eggs.
Weiss: Don't do that.

Man: You don't frighten me.
Jack: Then, clearly you're an idiot.

Marshall: Okay, Phoenix, you are hot, and I mean that in many ways.

Cultural References
Marshall: Merlin to team.

Merlin is the name of the wizard featured in the several accounts of the Arthurian legend. Marshall was given this name because he is a computer wiz.

Marshall: Okay, Phoenix, you are hot... and I mean that in many ways.

In Egyptian mythology, the phoenix is a mythical sacred firebird, which is reborn form its own ashes at the end of its life-cycle. It is a symbol of the resurrection, of immortality, and of life-after-death.
