Mystery Men Easter Egg - William Shatner Out-Take References

In Mystery Men, there are a few references to a William Shatner out-take. I don't know where the out-take comes from, but it's been playing from time to time on the Howard Stern show (from pre-Mystery Men days).

First Reference:

From the scene where the Mystery Men attach Casanova Frankenstein's limo:

Mr. Furious: Are you correcting me? Don't correct me! I'm a Pantera's box you do NOT want to open!

Casanova Frankenstein: That's Pandora's Box.

Mr. Furious: DON'T CORRECT ME. IT SICKENS ME.


Second-Reference:
Shortly after their "victory" at the limo, they go to a bar to celebrate. After leaving the bar, the Bowler and Mr. Furious are arguing about how to pronouce sabotage.

I'll try to spell it like they're pronouncing it:

One is saying, you say "sabotoge" (toge pronounced like the o in, say, "otter"), I say "sabotaage" (taage pronounced like the a in "bat").

The "it sickens me" and the pronunciation of sabotoge are both things from some Star Trek outfit.

In one, Shatner is practicing a "Spock! Sabotoge the engines" line and is doing the "taage" thing. He is corrected and tells the person correcting him, you pronounce it "sabotage", I say "sabotoge". He then goes on to say "Don't correct me, it sickens me".

Portascotch's comment is not an easter egg, it's a continuity error.

I noticed some other show references in' Mystery Men' 1) Just after the fight in the old folks home the Blue Rajah describes it with something like 'With the kicking, and punching and screaming' which is the same way that he (Frank) says lines like that for Prof Frink in the Simpsons. 2) Captain Amazing's publicist says 'he's a publicist not a magician'. In 'real' life that actor is a magician 3) Someone, who I think is the Sphinx says 'You have to respect my authority' the same was as Cartman does in South Park.

That wasn't really an easter egg, more of a cul-de-sac of confusion

the comment about the ice pack: that would be a slip-up, not an easter egg!

The "sabotage" stuff is from a voice-over recording session for one of the Star Trek computer games published by Interplay; I heard this from a co-worker while I was working there.

When Ben Stiller is shouting at the police man in the very beginning he is holding an ice pack. It shows him facing the camera with the pack in one hand, then a back view with it in the other hand. It switches to the front view once again and it is in the first hand one again.
