** A particularly noticeable example is a button labeled with "Dringlichkeitsfreigabe", which then gets translated as "Emergency Release", while it actually means "Urgency Release". It should be "Notfallfreigabe/-abkopplung/-entriegelung/-freisetzung".

** Their laser sound-effects are the same as the Martian DisintegratorRay in the 1953 ''Film/{{The War of the Worlds|1953}}'' film; similarly Polly's phoned-in report on the attack uses lines lifted from the famous OrsonWelles radio broadcast.

They begin investigating the affairs of the [[MadScientist mysterious German scientist]], Dr. Totenkopf, after his machines attack NewYorkCity, searching for ''something''. Further implicating Totenkopf is a string of kidnapped scientists, all of whom point back to Totenkopf's work...

* OneBulletLeft: Polly is down to one shot left in her camera, so she's forced to forgo the chance to photograph the [[spoiler:lost kingdom of Shangri-La]], a [[spoiler:top-secret flying aircraft carrier]], a giant [[spoiler:prehistoric bird]], and [[spoiler:every creature on Earth being loaded two-by-two into a giant rocketship]]. In the end Polly passes up the Scoop of the Century for a photograph of [[spoiler:Joe]] ... who [[CrowningMomentOfFunny promptly informs her]] she [[spoiler:left the lens cap on]]. [[note]]Except the point of view during the shot is facing Polly and the front of her camera, and the audience can clearly see the lens cap is ''not'' on. Though you could {{handwave}} this as Joe messing with her again.[[/note]]
