Episode Quotes
Mike: (telling Britt about the Hornet) He leaves that gang tied up for me like a gift package. Makes me wonder if he's as bad as I think he is.
Britt: Pretty confusing, isn't it?
Mike: I'll say it is. Next thing you know he'll be helping old ladies cross the street!



Episode Goofs
Professor Miller: Don't touch! Their extreme cold would rip the flesh from your hands.

The Green Hornet was wearing gloves when Miller said this.

The Green Hornet recovered rather quickly from being locked in the "50 below" freezer.
