Trivia

  • The term screw this refers to an expression of frustration at a difficult task, usually when abandoning said task.
  • In the windows there are references to MC Hammer, with signs saying "Tooled up? It's hammer time". This is slightly anachronistic as the phrase wasn't popularised until his 1990 song "U Can't Touch This".
  • The sign in the store window; "Why Not Get Wood and Do it Yourself This Weekend?" has a double entendre. At first, it may refer to carpentry or other craftsmanship activities, which are popular weekend pastimes among men. But, in the other hand, the term "get wood and do it yourself" can also refer to having an erection and masturbating, another of Rockstar's sexual jokes.
    • The same sign features in the window of Tooled Up.
