When Faye 'kills' the arcade game Lee Samson is playing, he becomes very upset that he didn't get to meet a character in the game. The name varies depending on the source of the translations and subtitles, but the character's name has been referred to as Spokey Dokey, Spooky Donkey and, in the Columbia Tristar distributed version, Sporky Donkey. Although the reason for the different translation is negligible, the Spokey Dokey translation is a reference to a song of the same name in the original series composed by Yoko Kanno, which is heard, amongst other times, at the beginning and end of the first episode, Asteroid Blues.

That's the kind of man he was... He spots a butterfly in the air and grabs it. He opens his hand. Nothing is there. TEXT: ARE YOU LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD? See more »
I have to disagree with anyone who says that Knockin' on Heavens Door (Tengoku no tobira) is a throw-away movie version of a popular anime series.
I have seen this movie and I loved it. The plot is involving and keeps the viewer involved in the story.
The aspect of Vincent being the one who is searching for a way to see if he is really dreaming or awake is a nice twist from it just being Spike who wonders the question. The soundtrack fits well with the action in the movie and heightens the action and suspense.
The scenery is dynamic and the characters, the main cast as well as the new additions, carry the weight (yes, yes, I know they're not real) of the movie and the script which is well written and very Bebopish.
This movie is a perfect addition to the Cowboy Bebop series and is definitely not a throw-away.
