* AnAesop: In one of the very few moments in the series played entirely serious, Dr. Evil taunts that the values of the hippies and swingers Austin associated with (promiscuity, partying, drug use) are now considered evil and amoral in the nineties, trying to convince Austin they're NotSoDifferent. Austin rejects this, explaining that the sixties weren't about embracing those values, it was about rebelling against "uptight squares" like Dr. Evil -- the spirit of it all was ''freedom''.
-->'''Dr. Evil:''' Face it: Freedom failed.
-->'''Austin:''' No, man, freedom didn't fail. Right now, we got freedom ''and'' [[ComesGreatResponsibility responsibility]] - it's a very groovy time.

responds thusly:
-->'''Austin:''' No, man, what we swingers were rebelling against were uptight squares like you, whose bag was money and world domination. We were innocent, man. If we'd known the consequences of our sexual liberation, we would have done things differently, but the spirit would have remained the same. It's freedom, baby, yeah. \\

* BilingualBonus: "As the French would say, it has a certain... I don't know what." The phrase ''je ne sais quoi'', a popular French term in America to describe some indescribable aspect of something, literally translates to 'I don't know what'.

%% I don't know which "Artistic License" category (if any) this fits, so for now am using the parent one.
* ArtisticLicence: To British viewers at least, the "newspaper" Austin reads in the space station is clearly a mockup designed by somebody who has never seen the real paper:
** Although the paper is nicknamed "the London ''Times''", to distinguish it from similarly-named papers such as the ''New York Times'', its official name (the one on the masthead) is "The Times".
** The masthead design is totally wrong.
** In particular, the masthead (like the rest of the paper) is in Times New Roman, not the Fraktur typeface used. Many British papers have moved away from the Fraktur tradition.)
