Fill 'em with some fantasies and I'll look out like Tattoo
Phife compares himself and Q-Tip to characters from the TV show Fantasy Island.
Tip is Mr Roarke, the island’s enigmatic overseer who fulfils guest’s fantasies. Phife is Tattoo, his midget sidekick who looks out for planes bringing guests to the island. Again, Phife is referencing his short stature.
Phife uses this technique again in Clap Your Hands with TV duos Ralph Malph and Potsie, Laverne and Shirley, Laurel and Hardy, and Ren and Stimpy.
