Sir Gallante appears to share some traits with known superheroes like for example Batman (he performs buliding swings and is a dark knight after all) and The Punisher (he actually kills the criminals that he fights and his iconic symbol is a skull.)
Phoenix gets very emotional while watching final scenes of Return of the Jedi.
Morton Dreisan, the police coroner makes a cheesy joke about the deceased in the CSI: Miami style:
Morton: It was a single bullet, straight to the cerebral cortex!
...I suppose you might say... that he "lost his mind"...!
Presenting a wrong piece of evidence during cross-examination in A Turnabout Is Worth a Thousand Words will result in the following gem:

Judge: You do? Why?
Conversations with Gladys Porter are usually full of various references:
Gladys: Well, OBVIOUSLY it's because I'm the very best reporter ever.
Phoenix: The very best...
Phoenix: My quest... my goal is to find the truth, no matter what it may be.
Phoenix: No snarky comebacks?
Phoenix: Yeah, well my truth doesn't involve whatever they're holding at Area 51.
In Turnabout Consequences, when Phoenix asks about Bikini's relationship with the Fey Family:
Phoenix: So, how exactly is Bikini related to you?
Phoenix: She's part of the Fey clan, so there must be some relation, right?
Pearl: Oh...? I don't know.
