"It Happened one Night" is the title of a 1934 movie starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. It's plot is that an heiress is running away from her controlling father. Clark Gable is a report who helps her on her run, falling love with her along the way. Clearly this episode owes a lot to this movie.

I'm reminded of Brock's advice to Hank on the occasion of their first date in "Vector Echo November" not to be so...Hank-like, but Hank was very Hank-like this time around. But Sireena seems to find him refreshingly different, perhaps because he's not in awe of her father. The final scene before the credits where they're kissing and the camera pulls back to show Hank being hoisted by his BVD was the big laugh of the episode.

Siireena's comment to Brown Widow (?) what were they friends-with-benefits implies that she's not a virgin.

One of the ninja waiters had the stock body type of 21. I wonder if he and his friend, Brown Widow will be among the many Rusty and Hatred look-alikes featured in a later episode.

Was Hatred really killed, or did he just fall on the floor? The hole in the lobby was repaired I think.

Sheila was dressed up as Daisy Mae Yokum. I can't imagine the self-control the Monarch exercised to dare the Misses in such an erotic position and outfit. Personally I thought she looked hotter as the farmer's daughter than as the cheerleader.

It was tranquilizer. Hatred is important enough to get more attention when he dies.

Sirena's never been implied to be a virgin, though (I know- out of all the comments, I choose to talk about this one). Just because she has an overprotective daddy doesn't mean she's some chaste maiden. She knows how to remove her tracking chip, so she's slipped away for some private fun with friends before.

She's from New York. Being a virgin is like illegal or something.

As she just turned 18 that could be problematic for BW, aka Jared, if Sirena or her dad ever decide to report him to the authorities. Also, the guy was in The Sound of Music as a child, which was released in 1965, so do the math, and he was having relations with an under-aged teenage girl. Winner.

Oooo . . . great . . . I am going to have to pull out the DVDs since I figured he was talking about a musical rather than the movie made in 1965 which would make him like . . . almost 60. Hard to be a college student.

Now, frankly, Peter Parker was the Epic Failure of college students--claiming to be getting a Master's degree over a 40 year period!--so maybe that makes sense. Perhaps BW does not age like all good comic characters? I do not know.

Yeah, he could have meant a stage play version of the movie. But still, I always guessed him to be in his 30's, so dating an under-aged teenage girl is still not cool, nor legal if they were having sex.

The age to consent in New York might be 16 or 17. It is in most states. The idea that it's 18 in every state likely comes from other laws regulating "adult" things like voting, military services, buying tobacco products, etc. So since Sireena is 18, it's possible that she was of legal age to consent when she dated Brown Widow. Not that it would matter one bit to Wide Wale, I'm sure. I can't imagine he would condone a relationship between his daughter and a costumed hero, regardless of the circumstances!

All true on the age of consent info. At the beginning of the season, I thought that Hank and Wide Wale would have more interactions and he'd appreciate Hank's chutzpah, letting him into his dealings to learn. Then Hank would have this secret relationship with his daughter and shenanigans would ensue from there.

And with Brown Widow, I always thought he meant a stage production of SofM, not the original movie. It's recognizable and would show he's always had musical theatre talents.
