- This strip contains a Shout-Out to Zero Wing.
- An early, but brief moment from the 2002-2003 range of comics, in a story arc where Bucky wants to order an ant farm. He's trying to go out when Rob is gone, and in a rare moment of badassness, Satchel yells at him to sit down and behave or he won't get the ant farm he wants.
(Beat)Bucky: (sitting on the floor) Man, you're strict.
- After a play date where Bucky bit Satchel's friend, Bucky, instead of feeling bad, calls all of Satchel's friends a bunch of Eurotrash. Then Satchel just snaps and proceeds to grab Bucky and give him a good "The Reason You Suck" Speech, about how all of Satchel's friends are nice and respectful, while Bucky's are rude and barf on Satchel's bean bag. It goes on for several more comics but it still is amazing to watch Satchel finally rip into Bucky who has been dealing him shit since day one. To sort of quote:
"I let you call me names and push me around because I consider you my friend, but I'm sure that if I wanted to, I COULD THROW YOU AROUND LIKE A CHEW TOY!!!"
- Similar to the above example, on November 22, 2015, after years of being Bucky's emotional tackling dummy, Satchel finally sassed back.
Bucky: See, that joke was pathetic. You could use my self-help book.
