GK1-Sierra: In a room of the secret honfour there are boxes with Voodoo paraphernalia (near to costumes). Gabriel says about it: "Where do these guys get their supplies? Pentagrams-R-Us?". This is an evident reference to Toys-R-Us.

Remake: There's no option to look at Voodoo stuff in the same room. But ..., in the Police Station, if we look at the trash scan, the narrator says "Interesting design for a trash can. Must have been on sale at Cops-R-Us."
Addition by Rudy Marchant (Sierra Chest):
""It's possibly also a nod to Droids-R-Us of the first release of the original Space Quest, which was removed from the game after Toys-R-Us filed a lawsuit to Sierra Online for using their name (sort of).""

Thanks a lot, Rudy!

GK1-Sierra: At the start of Day 3, when Gracie questions Gabe about his encounter with Malia, Gabriel (Tim Curry) will sing "Are the stars out tonight?" from Frank Sinatra. I've recorded a sound clip by Tim Curry.

Remake: It has been preserved. I've recorded other sound clip by Jason Victor. Is he really singing/saying "Are the stars" at the beginning of the verse?

Thanks to Dr. Bonny Ploeg for the reference.
Just wanted to politely correct you. The song lyrics "Are The Stars Out Tonight" that Gabriel sings in the original with Tim Curry performing his voice is from the song "I Only Have Eyes For You" by the 1950s Doo-Wop group The Flamingos, not Frank Sinatra. Sorry, I'm a stickler with all things music :)
