* YouSayTomato: Rod tells his crew that his safety word is "huwisky". His stepbrother wants to know why he's pronouncing "whiskey" so weirdly, which leads to Rod pronouncing a string of words starting with 'wh' (and one that just starts with 'w') in the same way until his stepbrother gives up. According to WordOfGod, this was inspired by a skit on Music/GangStarr's album ''Moment of Truth''.
