Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell
) at one point says "You know, for the kids." This is a direct reference to The Hudsucker Proxy
(1994) in which Campbell plays a supporting role. The line is a slightly different version of the movie's famous, oft-uttered line: "You know, for kids." Sam says "You know, for THE kids" because he's referring to 2 kids specifically (Corey and Tanya, the kids he's helping out) unlike in 'Hudsucker' where the line refers to kids in general. See more
