* The dig Jenner throws at Banner is that he can only bang his own cousin. Anyone even remotely knowledgeable in comics (especially Marvel) knows the truth couldn't be further. However, someone who doesn't know much might well just assume that She-Hulk was created as "romantic interest" the Hulk, regardless of her family ties to him. Jenner isn't the only one to make that mistake; in 2015, Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice co-writer David S. Goyer made the same assumptions on a podcast. The line could be a reference to that controversy.

* First, Mozart makes the crack, "I'm a prodigy, sonny, and I'm about to smack a bitch up!". Music/TheProdigy's most famous song is [[Music/TheFatOfTheLand "Smack My Bitch Up"]], and Skrillex's first name is Sonny. Then he says that Skrillex "reeks of dead mouse", a pun on Skrillex's friend/rival Music/{{Deadmau5}}.

* Craig places a particular emphasis on calling Connery a "misogynist." Why? Aside from the above reasons, because in three of his four films (and the previous incarnation, Pierce Brosnan) the role of his boss, M (a role previously accepted as male) was played by Judi Dench.

* Austin's line about Q crafting a new plot line is more devastating if you look at ''Film/{{Spectre}}''. [[spoiler:The main villain being the (half) brother of the protagonist]] has been done before in ''[[Film/AustinPowers Goldmember]]'', making it look like Bond ripping off Austin, which is already a ripoff of Bond.

* Austin Powers calling [[spoiler: Sean Connery's Bond]] "rapey" is an understatement. Connery's Bond films were incredibly misogynistic, with women generally being treated as sex objects for the hero. Case in point, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pUXH1Bye88 Goldfinger]] actually does attempt to glorify a blatant act of rape. Craig's Bond films were intentionally made to avert this, so of course he would be angry.

** Of course
Craig's Bond would despise the misogyny of Connery's earlier films. One of the easiest ways to look at how the Bond franchise has changed is to examine the representations of women across different incarnations. While Connery's films were intentionally are blatantly misogynistic, more recent incarnations of Bond (especially Daniel Craig) have made a concerted effort to avert this, so treat the Bond girls as actual human beings and to give the female characters a more active role.

* Notice how Connery's Bond immediately shrugs off Austin Powers' remark that he's "rapey," and basically denies it while stubbornly claiming to
be angry."distinguished." That's basically what happens when you attempt to explain the misogyny of Connery's Bond films to a hardcore fan of that era.

* Austin Powers himself only gets one verse, and a lot of the battle instead ends up being between [[spoiler: the Daniel Craig and Sean Connery incarnations of Bond]]. This also marks the first episode in which someone raps against themself. However the choices of which Bonds are used (the original vs. the most recent) makes sense as it shows how much Bond and, by extension, the franchise, has changed over time.

* Confucius's claim that he's "way above you weak rookies" can allude to the fact that he's played in the battle by MC Jin, the only one of the six cast members to gain fame as a rapper rather than gaining it from [=YouTube=]. He's also the only one to be a first-timer to [=ERB=].

** And in "Kitchen Nightmares", he aso criticizes the chefs, the managers and the business decisions of the restaurants he visits. More than once, he tasted food so horrible he hurried to the bathroom to throw up, as seen in a shot of the battle. Also of note, while Ramsay often cooks in "Kitchen Nightmares", it always happens off-camera.
