The Wild Wild West

The Night of the Infernal Machine - S2-E14

Trivia: West collides with the cook and sends him sprawling face-down in a huge platter of gelatin. Before racing off again, West quips, "Sorry about that, chef!" This was a winking homage to the 60s spy comedy Get Smart and its bumbling hero Maxwell Smart's famous catch-phrase, "Sorry about that, Chief!" (00:47:30)

Jean G

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

Trivia: The idea of Dr. Loveless using assassins in paintings to kill people was used in a scene of the 1999 movie, Wild Wild West, when Will Smith shoots a gunman as he steps out of a painting.
