So, I guess she'll need an aspirn?

I'm not clear on why Rusty's flirting with death for some nookie. But it was nice to visit with Night Dick again. I love his narration voice and diction.

I did want to see Rocco's showdown with Sliwa.

When did Red Death become a candidate for the Council? He didn't bring in Blue Morpho. Was it because he collected Dr. Dugong?

It was fun to see all of their lame final archings.

Has Race Bannon been retconned to have red hair? Or has be been merged with Dr. Quest into a Doc Savage type of character? Funny to see Hadji race-swapped into also an Indian.

So many questions.

In the Art of The Venture Brothers book, they say they aren't allowed to use the actual Race Bannon or anything from Johnny Quest anymore, but they can parody it.

Have the book.
Didn't read it yet.

The parody is spot-on.
Lots of actual Johnny Quest bits in that Dr. Z flashback.

I was thinking Z's flashback was completely lifted:

Huh . . . I thought on one of the commentaries, maybe the one from Ice Station, they learned that Comedy Central owned the rights to Johnny Quest? That is why they could use them? They then started calling him "Mr. Quest" in 12(!) to Midnight rather than "Action Johnny."

Maybe that changed?

I miss Dr. Phineas Phage! Why isn't he on the new Guild Council? Was he just absent from the meeting?

Hadji wearing Native American costume didn't make much sense...his name is Hadji and we've heard him speak in a noticeable Indian accent and wasn't he living in India when we previously met him?

They killed off Race Bannon on the show (and briefly talked to him in a flashback), so he is canonically in the VB universe, but he may not be associated with the Quest family in the VB universe (I don't remember any connection between Quest family and Race mentioned on VB). So I think Race not being in Dr. Z's flashback makes sense.

I also really loved all the vanilla arching all the characters did...I just wish we saw more of Dr. Venture's 'date'.

I laughed probably way too hard at Silwa being Wale's arch.

@hardyworld: they killed off Race in present time during the Ice Station--the GOLIATH SERUM!!!--episode. Johnny, at the time, is 40ish and tweaking in a diving bell!

The flashback has a child Johnny so Race is still alive. There are other references with both Dr. Quest--torturing someone at OSI--and Race at OSI as well.
