- Maxwell's quote is possibly referencing his previous assistant, Charlie, from when he was a magician. Cacti are spiky but grow pretty flowers, similar to the rose that Charlie wore. Or he could just be admiring the flower.
- Red flowers are a recurring symbol of power, death and sacrifice in Don't Starve, as can be seen in Abigail's Flower, Cactus Flowers, Glommer's Flower ("flower power"), and Charlie's Roses in Don't Starve Together.
