Does anyone have any idea how to get this trophy? I have played through the game twice already and this is the only trophy I am missing. Any tips/hints would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hey! I'm under 30 and I got all those references, except for Flash Gordon [heard of him plenty though] and the Glen Miller song... Talk about under-esitmating people born in the 80's, man. :D :)
    And under-estimate reruns!
  • I am 29 I understood most of them... some I didn't.

    Those are pretty well known. I got most of the others, too, and I started kindergarten in 1994.

    I really agree about the first one. The second one I got straight away, though. Max doesn't get cut off quickly enough.

    Didn't get these ones when I first heard them (I thought the middle one was just a case of "And Zoidberg!"). Still don't get the last one at all, and I'm not sure I get the first one, either.

    It's not like I didn't understand it. It's just, well, in the moment I though the double meaning I started to use Brain Bleach.

    Better save some of that bleach for these...

    Didn't mean to imply that. I was just paying too much attention to what he was probably about to see before I realised why he said it.

    Don't worry. I just was telling you what happened to me. And I always pay attention to the jokes because I brought this game for that.

    It's a case of "And Zoidberg!". The problem is who is the long time furry companion, if it's not Sam. (That joke, by the way, it's used by Sam in Surfin' the Highway a couple of times, I think. I was laughing with that, not because the Joke per' se. I was laughing because somebody was using that joke with Sam instead for Max ^^UUU)
  • Yeah, I get that now, but I didn't really wonder at first. Plus by the time he said "and Sam" I had forgotten about the "furry" part so I assumed his companion was his gun or something.
    Either way I didn't really think the companion had to be someone else is what I mean. I thought the joke was simply saying "and Sam". Sometimes the joke is that a sentence doesn't make sense.
    I certainly didn't imagine that in the sentence "teleporting him and X", X would be part of him. It's like saying "can you hold your hand and your fingers?" I just didn't think of it as a possibility.

    Plus if it's a part that's supposed to be furry... Just saying, it's more likely to be his tail >.>
  • I always believed the point of double entendres was to fill up with wathever you think its at first. In fact, I never came up with an actual "long time furry companion" before start to use Brain Bleach. If it's his Tail, his tail will be. Better for me. Really.
