Summary

When Brock is called away for a top secret mission by OSI he places the boys and Dr. Venture in the care of his comrade and love interest Molotov Cocktease. However, Molotov has more in mind than just babysitting, and Hank has more in mind than just being babysat. Meanwhile Brock must confront the ugly truth about his mentor and teacher from OSI.

Capsule

We start off with a flashback. Office of Secret Intelligence (OSI). Location classified, 27 years ago. A man is sitting at a desk reading a newspaper when Brock walks in and asks for Colonel Gathers. The man behind the desk responds by jumping on Brock. Brock tells him who he is and why he's there. Gathers is sure to make it known that Brock's formal training is over and it's a brand new game at OSI.

HUNTER
Now, let me get a good look at you. Good god they're making them big nowadays! Don't they know there's a gas crunch on? Look at the size of you!
[Brock looks at his arms and hands with some confusion]

HUNTER
[clears throat] Samson, Brock. Born Omaha, Nebraska to a single mother. Half Swedish, quarter Polish, quarter Winnebago! You lost your virginity at fourteen and have one brother and you enjoy motorcross. The Brock Samson you knew and were is dead! [he lights Brock's file folder on fire with his cigarette] Happy birthday, Frankenstein! You're OSI's baby now. Are you prepared to do whatever your country asks of you?

BROCK
Yes.

HUNTER
Can you keep your head about you when confronted with mind-blowing weirdness at every turn?!

BROCK
Yes.

HUNTER
Are you ready for anything?

BROCK
Yes!

[pause]

HUNTER
Are you still ready for anything?

BROCK
Ye-

[HUNTER extends a club-like weapon and smashes Brock across the knees]

HUNTER
Wr-ong!!

BROCK
[in pain] Oh son of a bitch!!

HUNTER
Lesson number one; trust no one. The minute god crapped out the third caveman a conspiracy was hatched against one of them. Get up damn you!!
[Brock groans and gets to his feet. Gathers tosses Brock a jetpack.]

HUNTER
Strap her on, kid. Your training starts now. When I'm through with you you'll be a member of the elite agency that's been thanklessly defending this bigass country since the second American Revolution. The invisible one.
[Hunter hits a button on the wall and the wall b behind him slides open to reveal that they have been on a plane the entire time. Brock looks highly surprised.]

HUNTER
Welcome to the Office of Secret Intelligence, Samson. [he flies out of the office]

Roll opening credits.

In the hangar at the Venture Compound Brock is giving Hank and Dean lice checks as he explains what's going on to Molotov Cocktease. Brock has been called away on a mission by OSI and Molotov is to be the temporary bodyguard for Dr. Venture and the boys until he returns.

Molotov tries to convince Brock to quit OSI (and thus his bodyguard role) and join her as a freelance mercenary. Brock refuses of course, saying that looking after the Venture family is important to him, and still highly dangerous. On cue Dr. Venture enters asking which of two shirts looks better. Velour or Italian knit? Brock introduces Dr. V to Molotov, who offers to kill Dr. Venture for Brock when he's asked to get an iodine stain out of a shirt.

DR. VENTURE
Have you checked her references?

BROCK
Yeah.

DR. VENTURE
Oh great, she's one of your hussies, isn't she? You're putting my life in the hands of a hussy!

BROCK
She's a mercenary. Not a- hussy.

DR. VENTURE
Uhm. Did you have [pause] relations. With her?

[MOLOTOV, out of earshot bends over]

BROCK
[groans] No. I didn't.

DR. VENTURE
Hmm. Well then, Rusty calls dibs. God, she must jazzercise night and day.

Hank attempts to introduce himself to Molotov while Brock explains to Dr. Venture that she's being paid in jeans for this job. He opens a compartment on the side of the X-1 when a 'manaconda' (huge half-snake thing) jumps out of it. It tosses Brock, who is about to kill it when Molotov jumps in. After a quick struggle she cuts it in half and some babies crawl out in confusion. Womaniconda.

Just then Brock's ride shows up. Once he's gone Molotov calmly explains that she's going to help Brock out by removing the Venture's need for having a 'babysitter' by turning them into men. Hank looks happy, though Dr. Venture and Dean are nowhere near as enthused.

In the limo an OSI agent thanks Brock for taking time off from 'Operation Rusty's Blanket' to do this mission for them. He hands Brock a field kit full of gadgets and supplies, all of which Brock refuses to use, explaining that his field kit is his trusty knife.

Brock reads the case file which reveals that the rouge agent he's been assigned to kill is none other than his mentor, Hunter Gathers. After the briefing the agent and limo driver bail out of the limo which then drives off a pier. A submarine pulls up next to it and Brock swims for it.

Flashback again. OSI Training Pool, located beneath Mt. Rushmore. 27 years ago. Gathers tells Brock that he can swim, but with proper motivation. Motivation being fancy talk for 'live grenade'. Brock dives to avoid the grenade blast, but is confronted with a hammerhead shark and two SCUBA divers armed with harpoons. He avoids the shark and grabs a harpoon headed at him. Cut to the surface of the pool where the two divers, now dead and bleeding quite a bit, float to the surface. A second later the shark with Brock on its back, flies out of the water and Brock proceeds to beat it senseless with a SCUBA tank.

Back to the present day, Molotov is calmly firing semi-automatic weapons at Dr. Venture and the boys. All they can do is run around in a panic while Molotov notes that if she was the enemy they'd all be dead.

On the sub Brock, now decked out in a full tux, is enjoying a lobster dinner while being briefed by another agent. Brock notes that Macronesia, the target location, is three days away via sub. The agent informs him that he won't be traveling by sub, but by some sort of crazy rocket thing. Sweet.

Meanwhile back at the compound Molotov is teaching the boys hand to hand combat technique (she punches HELPeR to demonstrate). Hank decides to poke her in the belly button, but Molotov ignores him and grabs his hand using one of the grips. She explains that this is how you want to disable your opponent, and then instructs them to spar. Hank is a bit preoccupied however, so Dean is able to knock him down with a quick hit.

DEAN
Ha! It works! I never used to beat Hank! Who da mastah? Who da mastah!?

MOLOTOV
Focus, Hank! Your opponent has you on your back! Are you going to let him win?

Hank grabs a pencil laying on the ground next to him and stabs Dean in the foot. Dean, of course, screams loudly.

HANK
Sho' nuff!!

MOLOTOV
Hank, niet! Your improvisation was excellent. But we're not up to weapons training yet.
[MOLOTOV pulls the pencil out of DEAN'S foot, causing a generous amount of blood to spurt out. DEAN faints.]

HANK
Holy crap, you made me kill Dean!

MOLOTOV
Sudden drop in blood pressure. He's only passed out.

HANK
Oh.

[pause]

MOLOTOV
Well what are you waiting for?! Pin him!

Hank jumps on top of Dean just as the compound's alarm system goes off. In his rocket thing Brock gets a call on his wrist communicator. It's Molotov:

MOLOTOV
Samson, we have a problem.

BROCK
Kinda in the middle of something here, Mol. What's the deal, you should be able to handle them.

MOLOTOV
Please, of course I did. But you neglected to tell me this compound is built on top of an Indian burial ground.

[Indian ghosts riding horses run around the hangar]

BROCK
Crap, is it the anniversary already? Alright look, you wanna call Dr. Orpheus. He's a necromancer, he's right over in the east wing. He'll clear that right up no prob. [an alarm in his rocket goes off] Look, I gotta go this- you gotta keep this channel clear unless it's a real emergency.

Brock hangs up and lowers his goggles onto his eyes as the missile explodes. Brock falls quickly to earth for a while before pulling a cord on his tux which inflates it to a hilarious size. He hits the water harmlessly and a propeller pops out of the back and sends him off towards Macronesia.

Back in the hangar Dr. Orpheus is removing the problem with Apaches. He explains that normally he'd have already fixed it, but it's a leap year and the Apaches didn't have those, so he's off by a day. He introduces himself to Molotov but is quickly escorted out by Hank. Dr. Venture, meanwhile, offers Molotov some cooking sherry as a nightcap (cooking sherry is low grade sherry with salt added so it's really only suitable for cooking, so I'm not sure why one would want to partake in it as such, but whatevah!). Molotov walks away without saying anything, but Dr. O would certainly like some!

On the shore of Macronesia Brock hits land and cuts himself out of his tux balloon. On shore he meets a native girl in a bikini who informs him that he has to wait for nightfall before he can make his move (it's morning now). How ever will they pass the time? Oh hey mister secret agent, my top has fallen off and here's a six pack of beer!

Back at the Venture Compound Dean stumbles into his bed, obviously tired. Hank walks in shortly after and begins to take down some posters on his wall:

DEAN
What are you doing with Danica Patrick?

HANK
I'm over her. You want this?

DEAN
Nah. Not my type.

HANK
Wanna... keep the Fun Tak at least?

[DEAN shakes his head and HANK takes down another poster]

DEAN
Woah! Not Mary Lou Retton too! What's going on with you?

HANK
[sighs] Dean, Dean. I sometimes forget that you're younger than me.

DEAN
By a lousy four minutes!

HANK
Then maybe in four minutes you'll understand. It took a real woman to finally show me that these girls (fine athletes and easy on the eye both) were but the mere crushes of a boy. And you, my friend, are looking at... a man.

DEAN
[gasps] You finally got 'em? [points at HANK'S crotch]

HANK
A gentleman never asks and a lady never tells.

Commercial.

The next morning Hank walks in on a sleeping (and naked) Molotov dressed similar to one of those Chippendales guys (no shirt, tight pants, a bowtie and cuffs). Molotov is startled and chokes Hank, dropping him when she realizes what's happened. Just then Brock contacts Hank via his commwatch.

Molotov and Brock talk a little while Hank smells Molotov's hair. Just then Dr. Venture and Dean walk in and Dr. Venture starts blabbering to Brock about stealing Dr. O's newspaper and other such nonsense. Dean wonders why Hank is dressed 'like that', to which Molotov comments "I thought you two just liked to dress like idiots." Over Brock's comm a faint slap sound can be heard and Dr. Venture yells at Hank and hangs up. Brock shrugs and looks at his target through a telescope and we...

Flashback to Paris, 20 years ago. Gathers and Brock are on a stakeout on the rooftop. Brock is dressed a stereotypical Frenchman and Gathers as a French woman. They converse about the rules of engagement for spies:

BROCK
So, no women, no children?

HUNTER
No women, no children. Them's the rules. Separates us from the baddies.

BROCK
Well what if she's an enemy agent?

HUNTER
Nuh uh.

BROCK
An assassin?

HUNTER
Nnnooo.

BROCK
A double-agent assassin who just killed the president.

HUNTER
No sir, non-lethal takedown only. President's not the president anyway, you know that.

BROCK
Oh. Hey how 'bout you know, a uh, a lady dracula?

HUNTER
You mean... le vampire? Nosferatu.

BROCK
I guess.

HUNTER
Undead. Not technically a woman in that regard, so you got to beef there. Also, fictitious. Do not eat that, it's C4!!

[BROCK looks surprised as he was about to eat a loaf of bread]

BROCK
Woman!

Standing on the roof across the street from them is a younger Molotov, complete with both eyes.

Back at the compound in present day Molotov instructs Hank to do fifty laps. Dean doesn't have to do laps thanks to his foot injury, but he still has to read up to chapter four of the GRU Spetsnaz training manual. I hope it's translated at least.

Back in her room Molotov is putting toilet paper into a suitcase when Dr. Venture sneaks up on her. She kicks him hard into the wall, causing his mouth to bleed a little. She helps him to his feet.

Outside at the pool Hank continues to swim laps while Dean reads. Triana and her friend Kim show up and Dean gets out of the pool to talk to them. Triana asks if it's cool for them to use the pool, but Dean says it's not cool. She's killing them! Hank apparently spots something at the bottom of the pool and dives.

In Molotov's guest room Dr. Venture and Molotov converse:

DR. VENTURE
Listen, we kind of got off on the wrong foot, you and I, and I don't mean the one you just kicked my teeth in with. I mean earlier. So fine! If you're not interested in 135 pounds of grade-A, American come-and-get-it, I can respect that. But, uh, we can at least be friends, right?

Molotov smiles. Meanwhile Hank, who is now outside the window of their room (apparently the guest room is below the surface of the pool and has windows looking out... into the pool... for those of you making blueprints of the Venture Compound), sees the blood on Dr. Venture's collar and notes it's the same color as Molotov's lipstick. He puts two and two together and screams, which we all know is a bad idea when you're underwater. Out of air, he sinks, totally unnoticed by everyone else.

DR. VENTURE
So tell me, friend, you might know this. That whole Russian mail-order bride thing on the Internet, is that on the up and up?

MOLOTOV
I wouldn't know.

DR. VENTURE
Because those Chinese ones are a real racket! The damned thing was already dead when the crate finally showed up!

At the poolside Dean continues to explain how Molotov is kicking their asses, but Hank is enjoying it for some reason. Kim asks where Hank is (referring to him as 'the Scooby Doo kid', which is awesome) and Dean notices that Hank is laying at the bottom of the pool and that his bathing suit pockets are filled with water.

In Molotov's room Dr. Venture asks Molotov not to smoke, telling her that he only allows Brock to smoke outside or in the hangar. This sets Molotov off, but her speech on how great Brock is is interrupted by Dean banging on the window and pointing out Hank's problem.

Poolside again, Hank has been rescued and is getting mouth-to-mouth from Molotov. However he's already revived and instead goes in for a little tongue action, much to Molotov's disdain.

MOLOTOV
Niet! Ugh, milk breath. [she walks into the house]

HANK
Incredible.

DEAN
Hank, we've got big troubles! The Apaches are back!

HANK
What?

DEAN
Look! Teepee in your trunks!

[HANK gasps and sits up]

[Inside MOLOTOV is rinsing her mouth out]

HANK
[running around in a frenzy and holding his crotch] MY PANTS ARE HAUNTED!! MY PANTS ARE HAUNTED!!

Back on Macronesia tells the native girl to get lost since the situation might go awry. She doesn't respond and he flips her over and there is the message 'No more secrets -H' written on her stomach in red. Brock remembers Hunter's 'no women, no children' mantra and realizes that his mentor has indeed turned. Brock jumps away and the native girl wakes up, so uh, oops? Way to check her pulse, Brock.

Back at the Venture Compound Molotov, wearing a robe and carrying shower supplies, wanders into Brock's room. Hank, at the same time, wanders into Molotov's now empty room and notices her uniform strewn on the floor and bed. Molotov, meanwhile, notices that Brock has kept her eye after all these years. No, really, he has her eye in a jar on his nightstand.

Molotov reminisces about the old days in Paris 19 years, 364 days, 23 hours and 45 minutes ago (fifteen minutes after Brock spotted her from the roof). She and Brock make out until Molotov stabs Brock in the sides with some spikes that retract from her boots. Brock falls to the bed in a daze and Molotov stabs him in the chest with her sais. She then kisses him and does a backflip, lights a match on the ceiling and lights the apparently highly combustible room on fire in a matter of seconds. Then she leaps out the window, leaving Brock for dead. With the cigarettes.

Back in the present day Hank smells Molotov's boot but ends up triggering the retracting spike which stabs him in the neck. He trips out for a little while and then hallucinates about Molotov:

MOLOTOV
Do you want me, Hank?

HANK
Yes'm.

MOLOTOV
Your father will never let us be together. He's a big old doody-head who wants me all to himself.

HANK
He's a jerk.

MOLOTOV
Yes, Hank, he is. But what are you going to do about it?

[MOLOTOV opens her top (what little there is of it) to reveal her boobs... only instead of boobs it's HANK'S face.]

MOLOTOV'S BOOBS
Kill pop, kill pop, kill pop. You should totally kill pop. Kill pop, you should totally kill pop.

MOLOTOV
It's the only way.

MOLOTOV'S BOOBS
It's the only way. It's the only way.

[Back to reality]

HANK
I should kill pop. It's the only... way.

Hank grabs a machete off the wall and slowly walks to the lab. At the same time in Macronesia Brock is entering a temple of some kind. Hank tells Dr. Venture (preoccupied with a microscope) that he wants to kill him. Dr. Venture tells Hank to play pirates somewhere else. Brock finds Hunter, who is unconscious on an operating table. Hank raises his machete over Dr. Venture. Brock raises his knife. Molotov walks in and yells for Hank to stop. The plastic surgeon pleads with Brock to not kill Hunter. Hank flips out for a second and then runs after Dr. Venture. We see a silhouette of him hacking the crap out of Dr. Venture with the machete.

Back at Macronesia:

BROCK
Back! I don't have orders to kill you, but I will if you get in the way.

PLASTIC SURGEON
Please! The colonel gave me a message. For you. [pulls out a note and reads] Brock, I knew they'd send you. After forty years-

[fade to HUNTER'S voice]

HUNTER
After forty years I'm finally tired of the game. The years of secrets and lies. Of living with constant danger of being exposed. I know you'll understand, Brock!

PLASTIC SURGEON
I know you'll understand.

BROCK
I have my orders. He'd understand that.

PLASTIC SURGEON
Please. Let him have his peace.

BROCK
I intend to. [he pulls off Hunter's sheet] What the f- what the hell did you do to him?!

[shot of HUNTER'S torso, which now sports a fancy new pair of breasts]

PLASTIC SURGEON
Only what she asked me to do!

BROCK
[grabs the surgeon] This man was like a father to me!

PLASTIC SURGEON
Well, think of this woman like a, a mother to you.

[BROCK yells and slaps the SURGEON]

PLASTIC SURGEON
Your father!

[slap]

PLASTIC SURGEON
Your mother!

[slap]

PLASTIC SURGEON
Your father!

[slap]

PLASTIC SURGEON
Your mother!

[slap]

PLASTIC SURGEON
He's your mother [begins to sob].

[BROCK looks at HUNTER in disbelief]

HUNTER'S VOICE
No women, no children.

[BROCK stabs the bed]

BROCK
I'll see you around, old friend. [he walks away]

PLASTIC SURGEON
Woo, that took a lot out of me. You gonna be okay?

[BROCK walks back to HUNTER and peeks under the sheet]

BROCK
[recoils] Oh, okay. Had to be sure. [exits]

Roll end credits.

Presumably the next day at the compound Brock sees Molotov off. She once again asks him if he misses the action and the danger, but Brock says that he's happy where he is (Go Team Venture!). Molotov drives away.

BROCK
Where's Hank?

DR. VENTURE
Up in his room! Our little man is grounded!

BROCK
What'd he do?

DR. VENTURE
Get this, I'm working in the lab, right? And Hank sleepwalks in, hauls off and smacks me in the head with a papermache sword, pees his pants and passes out.

BROCK
So. I didn't miss much?

DR. VENTURE
Psht, what's there to miss?

Up in his room Hank sadly waves goodbye to Molotov's departing car.

Notes

  • The title of this episode is a reference to the Fox reality show Nanny 911 (and Molotov is an assassin, get it?!?!?!) in which horrible parents let a super mean and usually British nanny whip their horribly behaved children into shape.

  • Hunter Gathers was actually previously mentioned by Jackson when he talked about Ice Station Impossible on his journal. He mentioned that originally he wanted the scene with Race Bannon to be a scene with Brock's old mentor, Hunter Cobb, who was to be a mix of Hunter S. Thompson and Nick Fury. However this had to be cut down due to time limits and Hunter was switched for Race Bannon (oddly enough Brock is at least a partial parody of Race). So here's Hunter's first appearance, only his name was changed to Hunter Gathers, which is of course a pun on hunter-gatherers.

    Colonel Hunter Gathers is roughly three parts Hunter S. Thompson (everything from his stature to his cigarette holder) and one part Nick Fury.

    Thompson was famous for his style of writing which was coined 'gonzo journalism'. Gonzo journalism isn't really journalism in the classic sense of the word, since it strives more for being entertaining and gritty than accurate and neutral. You can learn a little more about it on Wikipedia if you want.

    Nick Fury of course is fictional, but most famous for being the leader of SHIELD, a counter-terrorism agency of the government in the Marvel Comics universe. Fury shares some similar qualities to Thompson, though they both tend to be crazy badasses in their own unique ways. It's also worth note that the uniforms Brock and Hunter are wearing in the beginning of he episode are very similar to the uniforms worn by agents of SHIELD (thanks to Tom Winnicki for mentioning that).

  • This is the first time Brock's mission assignment to Dr. Venture is mentioned. 'Operation Rusty's Blanket', presumably put in place by OSI to protect Dr. Venture for any number of reasons. This is possibly an allusion to the vague pretext with which Race Bannon was assigned to bodyguard for Dr. Quest and Jonny by Intelligence One. The only real mention of the assignment was because Jonny might 'fall into the wrong hands'.

  • Brock's spy stuff, down to the catchy music, is mostly inspired by James Bond. Though Brock is something of an anti-Bond since he refuses to use any gadgets or even a gun and instead prefers to do all his dirty work with his hands and a knife. He still gets all the chicks though, but that's probably just a general spy thing.

  • Getting more specific, the entire beach sequence where Brock meets the native girl is a tribute to Dr. No where the Bond-girl (Honey Ryder, played by the sexy Ursula Andress) wears a similar outfit on a similar beach.

  • When Molotov is teaching Hank and Dean hand-to-hand combat techniques they are dressed as the adversaries from The Karate Kid. Dean wearing the all white garb of the protagonist Daniel LaRusso and Hank dressed similar to Daniel's opponent in the final fight, Johnny Lawrence.

  • On top of that, Dean's line "Who's da mastah?!" and Hank's "Sho'nuff!" after he stabs Dean are from The Last Dragon. Both are uttered by The Shogun of Harlem, also known as Sho'nuff. Thanks to Steve Glowicki for pointing that one out.

  • In the episode the island Brock is headed to is referred to as 'Macronesia', though in reality there is no such island. Macronesia is instead a collection of five different archipelagos in the north Atlantic near northern Africa and Europe. These include Azores, Canaries, Cape Verde, Maderia and the Savage Islands. So it's hard to say where exactly Brock was headed since it's not exactly a specific location.

  • Danica Patrick and Mary Lou Retton adorn Hank's wall. Danica Patrick is an Indy car race driver most famous for being a hot Indy car race driver, and Mary Lou Retton is a gymnast most famous for winning five medals at the 1984 summer Olympics (two bronze, two silver, and one gold). The poster of Retton as well is probably one of the more famous pictures of her which you can see here.

  • The manual Molotov gives Dean in the pool has 'GRU Spetsnaz' written on the cover. That's the Russian special forces. Really cool picture and info for you to check out. Reminds me of Counter-Strike.

  • I just feel it's worth mentioning again, but the design of the Venture Compound is becoming more and more complete, and also more and more confusing. Clearly custom made, but apparently the wing with the guest room and Brock's room (which is decked out in wood paneling) is underground, or the Venture pool is an in ground pool that's above ground level. Not only that but the guest room portion is next to the pool, but well below the surface of the water. Just to complicate things there are also two windows in the guest room that allow you to look into the pool well below the surface of the water. I don't think there's really anything more I can say about that.

  • Kim referring to Hank as 'the Scooby-Doo kid' is a reference to Hank's similar taste in clothing to Freddy Jones from Scooby-Doo. Though Freddy wears an orange handkerchief around his blue collar whereas Hank's handkerchief is blue and he has no collar. Hank also wears brown pants with a belt for those of you keeping score.

  • So, why was Molotov putting toilet paper into her suitcase? Jackson tells it like it is:

    Yes, a little holdover from an older draft of the script, in which there were a handful of sly bits in which Molotov liberated a number of American "luxury items" from the Venture compound during her stay. I guess she stocked up while Doc and she were doing their marketing.

  • The scene between Brock and the plastic surgeon is a variation of a similar scene from the movie Chinatown in which the character of Evelyn is slapped repeatedly by the main character Jake Gittes while he attempts to find out the truth about Evelyn's supposed sister. However instead of 'mother' and 'father' after each slap it's 'sister' and 'daughter' in Chinatown.

  • Brendon Small returns (he voiced a few characters in Powerless) to voice the plastic surgeon in this episode. The voice of the surgeon is strikingly similar to the character of Addleburg from Home Movies. Thanks to Peter Russo (and a few other people) for mentioning that to me.

  • The ending of this episode is a tribute to the Francis Ford Coppola film Apocalypse Now. Apocalypse Now is about an army captain who is sent on a secret mission to assassinate a renegade colonel with the Green Berets who has been conducting missions in Cambodia independent of the US government. The scenes between both Brock and Hunter as well as Hank and Dr. Venture are tributes to the final scenes in Apocalypse Now right down to the music, which is a sound-alike version of The End by The Doors. Here's a sample of some of the lyrics from the song that were partially used in the 'showdown' between Hank and Dr. Venture:

    He walked on down the hall, and
    And he came to a door...and he looked inside
    Father, yes son, I want to kill you
    Mother...i want to...fuck you

    C'mon baby, take a chance with us
    C'mon baby, take a chance with us
    C'mon baby, take a chance with us
    And meet me at the back of the blue bus
    Doin' a blue rock
    On a blue bus
    Doin' a blue rock
    C'mon, yeah

    Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

    You can check out the full lyrics and Wikipedia has a pretty comprehensive analysis of the song as well.
