So, this was all for the Hulk Hogan joke, right?

What about the Guardians of the Galaxy kidnapping Kevin Bacon?

(Not actually Werner Herzog, Marvel reached out to him, but he declined).

I forgot when the GotG holiday special came out, so that would definitely be it, then.

This was a fun episode. One could quibble about this or that, but honestly the chemistry of Happy, Darcy, Maria, and even Jason was very good. The plot was straightforward, the goals of the characters matched what we know of them and it was just an all around charming blast of fun on Christmas Eve. Will definitely watch again!

Bruce refusing to Hulk up at the end was peak Ruffalo energy.

So, Happy Hogan does Die Hard, eh?

"It's Hammer. He's headed for Tony's bathroom." Where he's not going to flush, if you know what he means.

Darcy was a delight, as ever. "Have you EVER had a paying job?" "NO."

And as always, Sam Rockwell gets to dance

So the first episode was Blade Runner, and this one was Die Hard. What was episode #2? There are a LOT of ensemble action movies I haven’t seen.

Heads up, there's a bit extra toward the end of the credits.
