- "Here's something interesting. It's a possible gamma sickness. Milwaukee. A man drank one of those guarana sodas. Guess it had a little more kick than he was looking for."
- ―Kathleen Sparr
During the time Bruce Banner lived in Rio de Janeiro, he worked in the Pingo Doce Factory. After Banner was cut, his blood dripped into one of the bottles where it was eventually drank by an ill-fated consumer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. General Thaddeus Ross used the incident to discover Banner's location.
- Pingo Doce translates from Portuguese as "Sweet Drop".
