Can anyone help me with Hatreds tits please? I don't understand. He didn't have them when he left to take Tinyfoot home in PROM, had them the next morning presumably after a short walk to her house.

My pet theory is that after all the fat comments Hatred started taking steroids or something, as he seems to be getting less tubby throughout the episode, and they've resulted in what the Fight Club writers called "bitchtits."

Williams Street is in Georgia, Astro Base Go is in Manhattan somewhere.

Also, I just got that Hunter telling Treister not to kill himself and shoot out of a cannon is exactly what Hunter S. Thompson did.

The AstroBase is in Manhattan because that's where Doc and Jackson are. There is a tour of the AstroBase on one of the extras of an early season. It's probably not as posh as you're expecting.

Nah, you can see them before the project begins. The authors just made us believe for a little while that it came from the radiations, but it is in fact unrelated.

Kim was a friend of Trianna's who vanished after a couple of appearances in Season 2, and Doc and Jackson got sick of being asked about her so they had Trianna mention in the Season 4 finale that she was living in Florida and all preppy now.

I figured Hatred's boobs are an unintended side-effect of the cocktail of hormones and chemicals the OSI was using to suppress his pedophilic tendencies.

Or perhaps the lack thereof, if he's off the drugs now.

EDIT: Just bought Archer on DVD. I gotta say, after watching the unaired pilot, the original actor they had playing Sterling was just way better than H. Jon Benjamin.

So, I'm theorizing it's the side effect of medication:

- Possible side effect of psychiatric medication, that he started being more regular with once he thought he'd get Tinyfeet back.
- Possible side effect of steroid abuse, since he's aging, but wants to keep his job.
- Some random poo poo he got from Rusty/the Pirate/21/Billy that might be explained later.

So is Palaemon a reference to anything? Because it's going right over my head if it is.

Several pages old, but in addition to the Greek god allusions it may be a deep nerd reference to the Book of the New Sun. In those books Palaemon is a benevolent teacher to the protagonist. He may also be an alien or otherwise superhuman figure planted to guide the protagonist to his appointed destiny, since causation flows in both directions in that series. I don't see how this applies to Dean, though, since any lessons he learned were wiped out by a heavy dose of rufies. It could be argued (somewhat tenuously) that it is yet another instance of Rusty loving up his son's development by removing his memories of Palaemon, a teaching figure, but we will leave those farcical interpretations to honours students 30 years from now.

Yes, and for the same money in New Jersey, it probably could be. Or it could be the same size, and they'd have a lot more money.

Then why didn't the cure-o-flies make them vanish?

Also, when Doc is using Hatred as the ray shield demonstration, the last thing hits him in the chest (which is already a little bigger on rewatch), and he winces in pain, which predates any radiation exposure.

e: actually, upon reflection, is there any indication the main characters think it was radiation? Gary does, because he's out of the loop, but Hatred's line on revealing them was ''am I going to grow arms out of these too?!'' He doesn't correct the guy when he's being beaten since it's the only thing preventing him from being eaten.

I imagine each week's shirts will ship after the time period closes. I imagine it would be cheaper for them to ship them all at once than a bit a time.

Mine hasn't shipped but I am not worried about it yet.

There's also some foreshadowing when Gary rags on him for having larger manboobs that he does and Hatred chalks it up to getting older. You can already see him getting them then.

Years ago, probably between seasons 1 and 2, I was doing some IT work in a construction company's temporary field office in Manhattan. On the way in, I noticed Astrobase Go was one of the other tenants in the building.

The elevator was one of the more frightening ones I've been on, the walls and floors didn't seem to meet up at quite the right angles, and there were tacked up wires and patched areas on every surface.

The office I was in was on a different floor, so I didn't see it. But if it was like the rest of the building, it was probably about the lowest rent you could get in Manhattan.

Gary could be fine as SPHINX Commander. It certainly seems he's over being a henchman considering how he brushed off the Monarch who was even asking about GoT, which probably would have piqued his interest in any other situation.

I dunno how over henching he is; SPHINX commander has got to have better uses for his time then perimeter patrol.

He hasn't gotten the brainwave to start recruiting yet. He's still in 'useful cog'/henchman mode.

Knowing Gary, though - he'd probably recruit at local Ren Faires and comic conventions. I can see it now:

"Dude, who smells like poo poo?" *sniffs everybody* "You! Recruit Roose Bolton, why do you smell like poo poo?"

"My mom hasn't done my laundry this week, sir!"

21 has trouble being his own boss. He was a killer number 2 but he lacks the vision and drive of the Monarch.

Something just hit me : the Monarch has trouble getting over 21 quitting because he was his best man and also a friend, but also because the Monarch thinks that 21 is working for Rusty. And the thought of having his best man going over to Rusty's side is unacceptable to him, he doesn't realise that S.P.H.I.N.X is not under the control of the Ventures.
