  • Connie, Eugene and Wooton say "Raiding and looting and shooting, oh my!"- a reference to the "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" chant from The Wizard of Oz.
  • Wooton asks if CVM is the TV shopping channel - a reference to QVC.



Eugene Meltsner: Egghead, would you please define “intelligence”.
Egghead: Intelligence is the superior ability to acquire and apply knowledge. Notable people of intelligence include Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Plato, and Eugene Meltsner.
Connie Kendall: Oh, brother.
Eugene Meltsner: I didn’t program that! It’s informed through an artificial intelligence program!
Wooton Bassett: Someone once told me that I had artificial intelligence.

Connie Kendall: Maybe we should wait until I fix a few things [on the video]
Wooton Bassett: Oh! We can ask for changes? Sweet! I love doing that! Can you redo everything in a sepia tone?
Connie Kendall: You haven't even seen it yet!
Wooton Bassett: I love sepia.
Connie Kendall: See? This is an example of having too many cooks in the kitchen!
Eugene Meltsner: Since we're all here now, perhaps I might demonstrate a new invention for you?
Wooton Bassett: Ooh! Is it sepia tone?
