Episode Quotes
Brock: A cyborg placed a personals' ad.
Hunter Gathers: Well, he's still half a man, ain't he?
Shoreleave: Now we know what half.

Cultural References
Brock: So how do we put the screws to a rogue RoboCop?

Robocop was a 1987 movie featuring a police officer turned into an emotionless cyborg programmed to enforce the law.

Red Mantle: You're thinking of The Wacky Races.

Wacky Races is a 1969 animated series which features eleven racers driving across the U.S. in a series of themed cars. Big Gruesome and Little Gruesome drive Car #2, the Creepy Coupe, which looks a lot like the Doom Buggy that Steppenwolf drives here. The villain and his dog that Dragoon mentions refers to the main villains of the show, Dick Dastardly and his dog Mutley, who drive #00, the Mean Machine.

Shoreleave: You got it, Chew-Brock-A.

Chewbacca is the first mate of the Millennium Falcon in the Star Wars movies, and a large fur-covered alien who speaks in growls and roars.
