  • After Helga Jace picks up the brush, her hair is gray.

Cultural references

  • Mister Bliss' welcome in three languages to the audience is taken from the opening song of Cabaret, "Willkommen". His appearance – a tuxedo and grease paint face – is similar to the way the Kit Kat Club's Emcee is traditionally dressed.

Unanswered questions


  • Brion: Violet, I want you to know...
  • Dick: No speeches, Prince, we're going. Now!

  • Holocaust: Tell them, Bliss, the girl is toast. Or should I toast her to prove it?
  • Mister Bliss: No, thank you, Holocaust. A living loser still knits a pretty penny.

  • Father Box: No more reprieves, Mother Box. I'm coming for you.

  • Tigress: Emergency generator. Don't you hate it when the bad guys are prepared?

  • Icicle Jr.: Don't play nice! You think I've forgiven you? You stole my girl! I mean, sure, I didn't know she was Miss Martian, but I was totally into her and you knew that!
  • Superboy: Yeah, but I was into her first. I just hadn't figured it out till you helped bring us together. I owe you for that. Hey, we're engaged now.
  • Icicle Jr.: Dude, congratulations! No, really, that's awesome! I always thought you guys made a great couple. Maybe that means there's hope for me too.
  • Superboy: I hope so. (kicks him down)
  • Icicle Jr.: Ow.
