Hudson, Brookyln, and Lexington don't appear in this episode.
"Jalopena" is said for the first time, which turns into a running gag.
Thug: You, uh, wanna ride with me?
Goliath: We provide our... own transportation.
Broadway: And if you play it smart, there'll be plenty of lettuce for everyone!
Goliath: (to Dracon) I would never join with the likes of you. You blackmail the innocent, and call it protection. I should drop you right now, down into the gutter where you belong. But gargoyle justice is not human justice.
Goliath: (to Elisa) Then I will protect you, you will protect me and together we will protect this city.
Mr. Jaffe: Matthew, you've been coming into my store since you were a little boy. You were always tilting at windmills then. What makes you think you're not in over your head now?
Tilting at windmills is a reference to Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quixote. The phrase means to charge blindly and attack imaginary enemies. In Cervantes's novel the quote is from Sancho, Don Quixote's sidekick: "Look, your worship," said Sancho. "What we see there are not giants but windmills, and what seem to be their arms are the vanes that turned by the wind make the millstone go."
