- Misquoting that famous line from The Empire Strikes Back as "Luke, I am your father" is an example of the Mandela Effect.

- The ninth Padmé outfit was brought up in minute 60.
- Asterios: ...it looks like they hit your [Ralph's] face with a brick, and then they took the brick that had some of your face on it and just finished it off on my face.

- Alex: Is that a [real] wheel theory?
- Alex: I would never joke about an Eopie.
- Pete: ...No. I am your fart-horse.
- Alex: (Paraphrasing Short Round) <robot voice> NO TIME FOR LOVE DR. JONES. GET ON BOARD.
- Ralph: It was gonna be one of my weird labyrinthine jokes that takes forever and doesn't pay off so you just go ahead and shout about something. Asterios: That's my whole life.
- Ralph: Anything I was going to say has been swept away by this tide of madness.
- Asterios: I'm trying to assign any meaning to a meaningless shapeless void!
- Pete: It's always nine-twenty somewhere.
- Ralph: Don't let the guys from Alphabeatical find out you're doing their material. Pete: That's alright, they're on hiatus; they won't ever find out.
- Ralph: They're [Pacithhip legs] tiny. They're about the size of this—nobody tell them how big I indicated.
