Recap / The Venture Bros S 6 E 5 Tanks For Nuthin

  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: Dr. Venture's new arches only think he's supposedly trying to invert this as the Blue Morpho, taking them out without attracting the attention of the Guild and its by-laws against killing archenemies. It in fact ends up being played straight as they end up doing Monarch/Blue Morpho's job for him by literally killing themselves going after Dr. Venture.
  • Expy: Think Tank is one for MODOK, as well as a No Celebrities Were Harmed version of Dr. Cornel West.
  • Flying Car: Much to the surprise of Monarch and 21.
    The Monarch/Blue Morpho: I love you, daddy!
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: The contents of Dr. Mrs The Monarch's laptop screen show the subjects of several emails in her inbox. These are:
    • Wide Wale: VIDEO Surveillance.
    • GCI Admin: You have nearly exceeded your cloud storage limit.
    • Red Mantle: Ignore Dragoon's previous email.
    • Dragoon: Wolves after me - please advise.
    • Nutri-produx: Exciting news about vitamin products.
    • Phantom Limb: That Bolognese recipe I told you about.
    • Dot Comm: Any news about my application?
    • GCI Admin: Meteor Majeure scheduled maintenance.
    • CopyCat: A little birdy told me...
    • Monarch: We are out of TP - please get on way home.
    • Watch (CGI Admin): Who took my juice box?
    • Ward (CGI Admin): Is this somebody's juice box? (ATTACHMENT)
  • Mistaken Identity: Deepened further with the Blue Morpho (actually The Monarch) and Doctor Venture, with Mrs. The Monarch and Battle Axe now making that connection.
  • Shout-Out: Henchman 21 is pretty sure that the women on the recording of Jonas Sr. and Blue Morpho's booty call are actually Jill St. John and Stella Stevens — two actresses who appeared as "girls of the week" on, naturally, Batman.
  • Tempting Fate: Brock actually thinks he could dodge Think Tank's laser cannon pressed point blank against his chest; one shot later of Samson being blasted off the Ventures' roof would indicate otherwise.
    • He's half right though, his chest plate takes the hit for him.
  • Wham Episode: Thanks to The Monarch, his wife ends up thinking that Rusty is Blue Morpho.
