B.A. LeCarre's name may have originated from two sources: B.A. Baraccus, who is better known as Mr. T, from The A-Team (a television show parodied in "The Wrong Stuff") and John LeCarre, who wrote the novel The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, a title that is an appropriate description for the former Cobra cook since he was trapped in the depths of a cold sea.

When Roadblock first meets B.A. LeCarre, he asks, "Who in the Robinson Crusoe are you?" The name referenced by Roadblock is a character from Daniel Defoe's novel Robinson Crusoe, a story about an English sailor who was marooned on a desert island for nearly thirty years.

To silence the fighting between Zarana and Zandar as well as Leatherneck and Wet-Suit, B.A. LeCarre fires a gun and then states: "Now, what we have here is a failure to communicate." The quote was from the film Cool Hand Luke.

The hair on Roadblock’s chin suddenly appears while he is traveling with General Hawk to an oil rig.

The inkers painted over Leatherneck's moustache.

Roadblock was inked with the wrong color.

The necks of the BATs appear to be those of Caucasian men, which creates an eerie parallel to the film The Black Hole for two reasons: one, the sole survivor of each ship is half-crazed; two, the maimed crew members were turned into half-robot slaves.

For the second time, Roadblock was inked with a Caucasian-like color.


Since running away from home is never a solution, Shipwreck recommends that you should talk about your problems with your parents.
