* RecordedSplicedConversation: When Blake is brought back to his mansion after being cured of his amnesia, he tries to call the orphanage, and is shocked to hear Leslie telling him to just disappear forever. Except it isn't Leslie, but rather Frost and his goons hacking the telephone lines and using a recording of things Leslie was saying to Dr. Blight a few days earlier.


''Santa with Muscles'' is a 1996 comedy about a wealthy, greedy health food guru named Blake (played by Wrestling/HulkHogan) who winds up on the run from the cops when a paintball session goes wildly awry. Disguising himself as a MallSanta, a blow to the head leaves him with amnesia -- and thanks to an "elf" who can use some, and perhaps ''his'', money, he is subsequently convinced that he's the ''real'' Santa. From there, Blake decides to [[SavingTheOrphanage save an orphanage]] from supervillain Ebner Frost and his strange henchmen, who want the land the building is on for an unusual reason...
