The wise man can pick up a grain of sand and envision a whole universe. But the stupid man will just lay down on some seaweed and roll around in it until he's completely draped in it. Then he'll stand up and go hey, I'm Vine Man.

Synopsis: Bill and Ted head for the final sleep, but figure it's not for them.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • When Ted attempts to get into Heaven by proving himself worthy, he says, "Every rose has its thorn. Every night has a dawn. Every cowboy sings a sad sad song." These are the key lyrics of {Every Rose Has Its Thorn}, a song sung by the popular 1980s/1990s heavy metal band [?] Poison.
  • When Missy and her friends are trying to send Bill and Ted's ghosts to hell, the words they chant spell, "Ed and Chris will rule the world," backwards.
  • The evil character from the future is called "De Nomolos", which is writer and producer Ed Solomon's name spelt backwards.
  • The evil robots arrive in the parking lot of the Circle-K convenience store, the same place where Bill and Ted first meet Rufus in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
  • The mountain to which Bill and Ted are brought to be killed by the evil robots is the same mountain Captain Kirk climbs in {Arena}, the episode of [Star Trek] that Bill and Ted watched in their apartment.
  • Bill and Ted playing a game with Death to win back their lives is a reference to the classic [?] Ingmar Bergman film, Det sjunde inseglet (aka The Seventh Seal), in which a knight plays chess with Death for his life.
  • The games that Bill and Ted play with the Grim Reaper are Battleship, Clue (aka Cluedo), NFL Super Bowl Electric Football and Twister.
