- Fender: Oh, it used to be a lot worse. They used to have this giant hammer... [Rodney screams] Fender: Hey, they brought it back!
Fender: [his arms have just fallen off] Oh, no, look at that, now they're arm wrestling. [the arms are wrestling each other] Fender: Could you please separate them? Hurry, my back itches.
Rodney Copperbottom: This is our moment to shine, to show them what we're made of. Fender: In my case it's a rare metal called afraidium. It's yellow, tastes like chicken... Buck-ah! [lays an egg] Fender: Whoa! Didn't know I could do that!
Fender: [to Rodney] You know, my last roommate jumped out THAT window.
Piper: Did I miss the butt wuppin'? Piper, Crank, Fender, Rodney Copperbottom, Lug, Cappy: [surrounded by menacing machines, everyone freeze, staring and then move again] No. Crank: Actually, you're a little early.
- When Fender and Rodney arrive at the ball to try and get past Tim, we get a glimpse of the guest list. The names featured on the list are Mr. Vandersmelt, Forge, Silvia Goldbot, Cappy, Mme Goldie Van Bot, Ann Droid and Mr. Silverleaf.
On the "Map of the Stars' Homes" that Fender tries to sell Rodney, the names of the stars are: Jeremy Irons, Orson Wheels (Orson Welles), Axle Rose (W. Axl Rose), Britney Gears (Britney Spears), Farrah Faucet (Farrah Fawcett), and M.C. Hammer.
At the start of the scene where Rodney is at the Rivet Town train station, the "ticket taker robot" can be seen picking his nose and examining his finger behind the booth window. On the commentary of the DVD, one of the commentators states this as being an Easter Egg.
Rodney Copperbottom's design is inspired by an old Evinrude outboard motor in director Chris Wedge's garage, as well as on a Volkswagen van. An early version of Rodney makes a cameo as the green robot with the jet pack waiting in line during Bigweld's TV show.
Originally, Rodney's co-passenger in the cross-town express sequence was an old lady knitting calmly. For some long shots, the old lady is simply colored red rather than replaced with Fender.
