In an effort to make sure the hilarity of the first season has been fully appreciated before we move on to the second course, here are a few jokes in slo-mo replay to make sure you got whatever lofty reference show-runner Adam Reed and the boys were tossing your way:. A little extra research shed quite a bit of light on this doozy. But where exactly Johnny bench called archer he going with that?
But the story continues. After the initial episode aired Adam Reed was informed that Johnny Bench was also known for having giant fingers and was famous for a parlor trick he did where he held seven baseballs in one hand. I feel like the second Johnny Bench joke revises the first, like a humor time loop.
Says Reed:. I read tons of books all the way back to Greenmantle by John Buchan. And I read a lot of the James Bond novels, which are a lot darker than the movies. And so that was part of the inspiration… trying to see how much of a jerk I could make this guy and still make him likable. That is probably the end of the intended reference there BUT if one were to look a little deeper… There was once a famous racehorse named Greenmantle that was ridden by jockey John Cutts. Cutts is best known for winning several Australian horse races in the s.
And what was the name of the horse he Johnny bench called archer for the majority of his wins?
That is the definition of a coincidence right there. What can she say? Malory Archer has a thing for drummers. She may be a little hazy on who exactly planted the seed that would become her son Sterling, but she is sure clear on liking men who know how to beat the skins. While it makes more sense for super spy Sterling Archer to actually be spawned from either Len Drexler or Major Nikolai Jackov, we need to remember to keep these two Johnny bench called archer beat-boys in the mix.
This whole reference gets pretty well explained in the show. Bartleby the Scrivener is a short story by Herman Melville and it really is a hard read, or at the very least a tedious read. I did some paper on Melville in the 10th grade and retained absolutely nothing except for the chapter about whale semen in the middle of Moby-Dick really, not worth getting into. It was made into an ultra weird indie movie starring Crispin Glover in the titular role.
Hey, Eugene Debs S01E Archer points out that her time scale is off by evoking the name of a famous Union reformer, Eugene V. Debs, a Labor party organizer, socialist Presidential candidate and all around Pinko. Debs was finally arrested and sentenced to prison for pissing off Woodrow Wilson. Johnny bench called archer his sentencing Johnny bench called archer uttered these semi-remembered words:.
Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free. This gives the tubby nerd behind the controls to drop this heady gem. But what exactly is a coat of Dwarven Mithril?
So see, in Middle Earth… mithril is a type of metal found in the J. Gandalf explained it thusly:. All folk desired it. It could be Johnny bench called archer like copper, and polished like glass; and the Dwarves could make of it a metal, light and yet Johnny bench called archer than tempered steel. Its beauty was like to that of common silver, but the beauty of mithril did not tarnish or grow dim. So in these times of economic insecurity, the U.
Treasury recommends buying Mithril! Anyway, a shirt or coat of mithril was recovered from the dragon SmougSmaug in the book The Hobbit and given to Bilbo Baggins. It eventually finds its way to Frodo who gets his ass saved five different times by the handy shirt, shielding him from Orc attacks and even once from Saruman the Douche. Major Nikolai Jackov and Malory Archer seem to have quite the historic romance. The bridge was equally divided between Soviet and NATO territory, so neither party had full control of it.
This made it the perfect meeting ground for prisoner exchanges — of which there were several between and It is easy to imagine these two meeting on a moonless night and, after swapping hostages, consummating their love, perhaps in a tank. I had always just assumed that this was a completely random insult, but it turns out it is one of the most ancient references in the entire show! After Pam and Carol Cheryl, Cristal, etc stow away on a rigid airship, Carol continues her psychological torture of Cyril by teasing him about the fact that they have had rug-burn-y sex.
Now that I think about it, I bet there are some pockets of America who have actually heard this fable. Let me know if you already knew the reference and where you live. I have decided to do an impromptu sociology project. Try the diner. Get it? Can… you help me out? Get it now? This is maybe my favorite of all the woefully esoteric references in the show. When Archer tries to train Cyril to become a secret agent he employs the services of Trinette, a begrudging call girl, to help teach the would-be spy some moves.
But when the cap slips off a pen that is actually a hypodermic needle full of a toxin called poisocane not a real toxinfor like no reason, Trinette receives an inadvertent and apparently lethal dosing. Archer cuts off whatever excuse Cyril was going to make about his actions by telling him not to employ the Chekhov Gun argument.
If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Kind of. The joke is not a perfect fit, but it such a wallop of a reference by the time you are done trying to extricate the one theater class you took from your pot-addled mind we are already rolling the hooker up in a carpet. What a great show.
