Trivia

This episode parodies a 1962 film titled "The Manchurian Candidate", which starred Frank Sinatra and Angela Lansbury. There was also a remake which starred Denzel Washington in 2004. The film concerns the brainwashing of the son of a prominent right-wing political family, who becomes an unwitting assassin in an international conspiracy. See more »

Quotes

Abraham Lincoln: Microchip! Microchip! Infused to the back of Colonel Manstrong's neck. His mother is using it to control him and he's going to assassinate the president!
Dean Venture: I don't know, that sounds kinda far fetched.
Hank Venture: [to Dean] Thanks. I'm glad you said it first.
Abraham Lincoln: [stops raving frantically after hearing Hank] Far fetched? Didn't either of you see the 'Manchurian Candidate'? Not even the remake with Denzel? I've been dead for seven score years and even I...
Hank Venture: [Quietly, to Dean] Who is this guy again?
Abraham Lincoln: [...]

Brock rekindles an old friendship while Dr. Venture has an important meeting with the President and the boys have to join forces with a ghost to save the day.
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brock, Doctor Venture and the boys take a trip to the white house for an important meeting with the President. When things end up a little boring Doctor Venture decides to make the best of the situation and get some special attention from the President. Of course things get harry and it's up to the boys and a surprise ally to save the day.

You will find the usual sass and witty humor as expected from all Venture Brothers episodes. The adult humor and innuendos are a bit more mild in this episode as well. Overall, yet another great Venture Brothers episode. With two weeks between 'Guess Who's coming to State Dinner' and the next episode 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills' I'm having a hard time waiting for my fix.
