Fridge: Austin Powers

  • The intro of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, which makes Vanessa a fembot, is a satire on disposable Bond girls.
  • Goldmember, we see Nigel Powers telling Mini-Me that his junk looks like a baby's arm holding an apple. Later in the movie what does Austin and Mini-Me's shadows do behind the curtain?
  • "Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day!" It wasn't just for superficial reasons that Austin would find her unsexy! He was a product of the Swinging Sixties which faced a large backlash from Thatcherism in the 80s. Thatcher stands for everything that Austin's generation was separating themselves from.
  • Mini-Me is "a tripod." Mini-me is an exact clone of Dr. Evil, who is Austin's twin brother. Logically, that means that that also applies to Austin himself. Explains all of Austin's Mojo, doesn't it?
  • Nigel Powers befriending Mini-Me wasn't just a ploy to get someone to help him escape. Nigel knew that Dr. Evil, Mini-Me's creator and "father," was his son, making Mini-Me his grandson!
  • Every single line that Basil Exposition speaks in the first film, up until "Oh, and Austin — be careful," is exposition.
  • Considering he's a lady's man, it makes sense Austin's chest hair is shaped like a penis.
  • When Scott, suggests using the Time Machine to kill Austin while he's sitting on the toilet, Dr. Evil shoots down that idea. It seems like a typical moment between them. However it's because, he already tried that before when Patty O'Brien tried to kill Austin while he was on the toilet.
  • Dr. Evil tells Scott that he's "the Diet Coke of evil: just one calorie, not evil enough." Diet Coke has actually had zero calories for quite some time, but since Dr. Evil comes from the past, he doesn't know this.
