[edit]

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.
