Professor Questa: "Hrómundartindur is gonna blow!"
Brains: "T-Thanks for the lift, Scott."
Scott: "Not a problem. Ah, the detour should only add a few seconds to the flight."
Brains: "A f-few seconds? But by my calculations, it takes Thunderbird 1 at least 12.3 seconds to land."
Scott: "Who said anything about landing?"
Brains: "Oh no..."
Brains: "Oh, the things I do for science..."
Brains: "M-MAX, why are you playing that music?"
Brains: (sighs) "Robots, always thinking with their d-diodes."
Concierge: "How may I assist you?"
Virgil: "Hi, I'm from International Rescue."
Concierge: "Yeah, and I'm Jeff Tracy."
(Virgil clears his throat and points out the window at Thunderbird 2.)
Concierge: "Oh, my."
Concierge: "Thank you, thank you, International Rescue!"
Brains: "Oh no, d-don't thank us, thank..."
Professor Questa: "Thank Isaac Newton."
Concierge: "Very well. I'll send... Mr. Newton a gift basket immediately." (He heads back to the resort.)
Brains: "Should we t-tell him?"
Professor Questa: "No, he'll figure it out... eventually?"

- Inspiration for this episode might have come from the PC Game "Thunderbirds - Operation Volcano" released in 2001.
- Scott states a reference to The Uninvited as he mentions about a fire incident in Tokyo, in which his classic series counterpart was returning from that very mission at the very start of that episode.
- Grandma Tracy asks Questa "have you ever heard of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf'?", which is one of Aesop's classic fables, and also references the classic series episode Cry Wolf.
