television series
(Redirected from MST3K)

Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988–1999; 2017–2018; 2022–) is an American TV show that mocks bad movies by riffing on their strange characters, absurd settings, and silly plot twists, interspersing erudite cultural quips with schoolboy jokes and general zaniness. There are 198 movies, 60 shorts, and 4 specials in the MST3K canon. (See Notes below for help on using this page.)

  • How to use this page. You can browse these quotes by scrolling through the page, looking for a specific title using your browser's Find or Search feature, or click on a numbered link in the table of contents. As you pause your mouse over each box in the table, the title of the episode, short, or special will pop up in a tooltip.

  • What kind of quotes to add. Much of the humor in Mystery Science Theater 3000 comes from visual or sound sources that cannot be adequately communicated through a text quote page. A good guideline for adding quotes here is to limit them to ones that communicate their humor through the text itself, with a minimum of context. On the other hand, these quotes do include MST3K humor that arises from cultural references that aren't practical to explain within a quote page, so they are left as mental exercises for the reader (or the use of external sites with such explanations).
  • How to format quotes. See the discussion page for suggested formatting and more inclusion guidelines.

The Green Slime

Man: That's an asteroid!
Joel: That's no asteroid... that's a battle station![N]

Joel: Hey, Crow.
Crow: Yes, Joel Hodgson?
Joel: I found the secret of life the other day... but it kinda bummed me out.
Crow: You found the secret of life? Why should it bum you out?
Joel: It was on 8-track.
[Gypsy and Crow laugh.]

Invaders from the Deep

Captain Troy Tempest: No visible sign of trouble.
Joel: Not yet.
Tempest: Down SVC. Standby to surface.

Tempest: Right. Blow 1.

Joel [as Tempest]: Pull my finger.

[as Marina, Tempest, and Phones dive through an underwater cave]
Joel: They stay down pretty good for being made out of wood.

[as Tempest and Phones are immobilized by a pink ray]
Joel: Are they sweating or is that sap?
Crow: Forced to watch their own movie. How horrible.

[as Commander Sam Shore paces in a hover-chair]

Crow: His boots weren't made for walking.

Revenge of the Mysterons


Star Force: Fugitive Alien II

[During an effects sequence.]
Servo: They must've spent tens of dollars on this.

Gamera vs. Barugon

Joel: Hey, thanks a lot for calling in last week, everybody. It sure helps out here on the Satellite of Love to get your messages.
Servo: Hey Joel, let's listen to one of the messages!
Joel: Alright, that's a good idea. Hey Cambot, could you give it to me on a blue star field screen and give it to me one time, CG bold helvetica straight up on two?
Caller 1: I enjoyed the movie, but really hated the constant interruptions that were on there. It was like being in a theater with a bunch of rude Jr. High teenagers. I hope you don't continue the program, not in that fashion anyway.
Servo: What a complete wing-nut!
Joel: Well listen, Servo, everyone is entitled to their opinion. That's what makes the USA great.
Crow: Is that so, Joel Hodgson? I think that guy needs an antispasmodic.
Servo: Could I say something to our friendly caller, Joel?
Joel: Of course, Servo.
Servo: Hey buddy, is that your head, or did your neck grow a bubble?
Joel: Hey you should talk, listen I think we should listen to another one.
Caller 2: [excitedly] Great stuff! More more more MORE MORE!!! GIMME MORE!!! I WANT MOOOOOOOORE!!!!
Crow: Oh, he must mean Dave Moore.
Servo: No, he's on TV 4.
Crow: No, that's Moore On 4.
Servo: No, that's a black gospel singing group.
Crow: No, that's More By Four.
Servo: Isn't that an off road truck?
Crow: No, that's a 4x4.
Servo: No you're thinking of a 2x4.
Crow: No, that's a CB term, you know uh, "2-4, good buddy."
Servo: No, that's 10-4- no, that's a tax form you fill out.
Crow: No, that's 1040- my favorite lubricant!

Japanese General: Operation Rear View Mirror has failed.
Servo: Now do Operation Fuzzy Dice.


Crow: Hey Joel, uh... I looked up 'suspended animation' in the dictionary and I don't think that this is going to be any good at— [a spray of liquid nitrogen turns Crow frozen mid-sentence] —AAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
Joel: See, I told you guys it would work.

[Hidaka and his Eskimo hosts observe fighter jets pursuing another jet.]
Dr. Hidaka: The war even comes to this Eskimo village. Soon there won't be any peace anywhere.
[Cut to a ship cutting through the ice.]
Joel: There's nothing more tragic than a war in an Eskimo village.

[Kenny searches for his turtle Tibby among the shore rocks.]
Kenny: Tibby? Tibby? Tibby?
Joel: Like the turtle's gonna call out if he hears him.

[At night, Kenny mopes about his lost stones that he was collecting for "Gamera's new house".]
Joel [as Catherine]: When you get up in the morning, Kenny, we'll get you a whole box of gravel.

Gamera vs. Gaos

[While playing back phone messages left by viewers.]
Joel: All you scary guys with the low I.Q.s, don't call any more because you're scaring Gypsy.
Gypsy: Yeah, grow a brain already!

[While opening credits roll with a background showing the ocean.]
Joel: The Ocean; the beginning of all life... and all Sandy Frank films.

Gamera vs. Zigra

[A supertanker has just exploded in flames.]
Servo: Oh my God, it's Gordon Lightfoot!

Helen: I think he's so wonderful, I love Gamera!
Joel: Keep your shirt on, honey.

Gamera vs. Guiron

Servo: Six-year-olds and nuclear weapons: a combination that just can't be beat.

Phase IV

Crow: Looks kinda skinny. Must be a Carpenter ant. [chuckling] Carpenter... get it? Carpenter ant. See 'cause—
Joel: [horrified] Oh no...
Crow: Never mind.
Joel: You don't mean that...
Servo: Ant-orexic.
Crow: [laughs] See? Servo got it.

Servo: You know, ants can carry entire watermelons. And big chicken legs. Happened in The Flintstones.
Crow: I had a chicken leg once. I had to wear corrective shoes.

[During an unpleasant closeup of the queen ant laying eggs.]
Crow: Hope no one's eating rice at this point.

Servo: So Crow, if we ever get off this ship, what's the first thing you're going to do when we get to Earth?
Crow: Uh well the first thing I'm gonna do is kill Sandy Frank!
Servo: Oh, that's just a given!

[While the end credits roll.]
Crow: I thought it was deep...
Joel: What did you think, Servo?
Servo: I thought it was pathetic.
Crow: So deep, we should've been wearing boots.
Servo: This made flying turtles look good.

Cosmic Princess

[Tony and Koenig watch a video of an "alien" — a man whose face shows through his pumpkin-shaped and -colored rubber mask.]
Joel: Kind of a jack-o'-lantern monster.
Servo: [deadpan] Ooh, very scary. I'm trembling.
Crow: I think the prop department juuuust ran out of money.

[Integrating an alien power supply into their Eagle, Tony, reading some instructions, counts off numbers to Commander Koenig.]
Tony: 1... 2...
Servo [as Tony]: 3...
Tony: 5...
Joel, Crow, Servo: What?!
Tony: 6...
Joel: That's why they're in such trouble.
Tony: 7... 4.
Crow: Well, they are British.

[During the credits.]
Crow: Nick Brimble! I had a knick on my Brimble once.

Humanoid Woman

Joel: The plot thickens.
Servo: Like rancid pea soup.

Fugitive Alien

Joel: Just because you lost your hair, doesn't mean you have to take it out on the planet.

SST: Death Flight

[Blonde bimbo Angela Garland boards the plane, still wearing her "Miss SST" outfit and sash.]
Angela: [vapidly] Hello!
[The flight attendants watch her sashay to her seat.]
Crow [as Attendant]: Please put your brain under the seat in front of you.

[Passengers are boarding.]
Crow [as Attendant]: Hi, you're in the part of the plane that falls off.

[Having achieved a cruising altitude of 65,000 feet, Captain Walsh gets on the intercom.]
Capt. Walsh: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Captain Walsh. If you'll look out your windows, you'll see a sight that very few except the astronauts have ever seen.
Servo [as Capt. Walsh]: An oncoming plane.
Capt. Walsh: Although the sky above remains black…
Crow [as Capt. Walsh]: … our wing is completely on fire, not unlike re-entry.

[As the SST stabilizes, Kingman herds the passengers toward the rear of the plane.]
Carla Stanley: Please, do something! We'll all be killed!
Crow: I guess she's in charge of panicking.
Servo [as Kingman]: Okay, all the actors form a line! "Love Boat" on the left, "Fantasy Island" on the right!

Mighty Jack

[The villain has shot himself, but his pet cat is still alive.]
Joel: So that cat is going to have to take the rap for this whole thing?


[Star quarterback Tom Selleck narrowly escapes death in a sabotaged hot tub.]
Crow: Magnum, deep fried.

[The film ends just before the kickoff.]
Announcer: There's nothing quite like it. Super Bowl. Three hours from now the game will be history, but the lives of the players and fans alike will never be the same.
Servo: [annoyed] Who won?
Crow: I know I'll never be quite the same.
Joel: This movie's history.
Crow: We're history.
Joel: Let's go.
[Joel and Crow get up to leave. Servo hangs back.]
Servo: Who won? ... Who won? ... Who won the game?!

City on Fire

Dr. Erhardt: We got a letter from the Mad Scientist League. They say they're gonna revoke our licenses--that we're not really mad enough!
Dr. Forrester: I know, look, it says here, at best we're Mildly Peeved Researchers.

[After a helpful title card informs us that "What you are about to see could happen to any city, anywhere."]
Servo: Oh, good. ... It can happen in any city to any person. So wha–
[Barry Newman's credit appears.]
Crow: Like Barry Newman.
Servo: So stop watching TV and get ready for the big huge fire! The apocalypse that could happen this Sunday night.

Crow: I bet this was made in Canada.
Servo: Oui.

[Doctor Whitman is evacuating the children's ward.]
Dr. Whitman: You all know "Follow the Leader"?
Crow: This is called "Follow the Burning Doctor".

[A char-broiled paparazzi photographer is taunting Diana about some incriminating photos that he took of her and the Mayor.]
Servo [as Diana]: Doctor, I think we got our blood donor!

[A woman is going into labor.]
Crow: Get a catcher's mitt!
Joel: Boil some water.
Crow: Boil some newspapers!

Crow: Kinda sorry Shelley bought it.
Joel: Yeah... kinda of a shame.
Servo: She bought it, but we paid for it.

Time of the Apes

[In response to Keiiche Abe's writing credit.]
Crow: Someone wants to admit that they wrote this?

[Still shot of two gorillas]
Crow: Oh look, it's Shelley Winters and Ernest Borgnine.

The Million Eyes of Sumuru

[CIA agent Tommy (pop idol Frankie Avalon) waits while sexy Helga strips behind a curtain.]
Joel: Just try to pay no attention to that girl behind the curtain.
Crow: Try not to pay any attention to that hideous pattern.
. . .
Tommy: I wonder if this is where I'm supposed to sing. Nah!
Joel: Good one, Frankie. We'll make fun of the movie, if you don't mind!

Hangar 18


The Last Chase

[a credit for the Canadian Film Development Corporation appears]
Crow: Oh, Canada, well that– that... that explains why it SUCKED!!

Legend of the Dinosaur

Servo: It's Brooke Shields, the Creature from the Blue Lagoon!

Reporter: Everyone is asking the same question...
Servo: Why am I watching this?

[Towards the end of the movie, the titular dinosaurs finally appear and go on a confusing sort-of-a-rampage.]
Joel: It made more sense before there were any dinosaurs. I'm starting to miss that part of the movie.

Season 1


The Crawling Eye

Servo: [first riff; displaying a mountainside] This must be a Paramount Picture.

[Two mountain climbers have just spied the corpse of another.]
Mountaineer: His head! ... It was torn off!
Servo: You say that like it's a bad thing.

[The train carrying some of the main characters arrives in Trollenberg.]
Servo [as Conductor]: Trollenberg, home of the Crawling Eye. All stops lead to a bloody death.

[A woman- Anne- stares blankly at a mountain as bizarre music plays.]
Joel [as mountain]: [deeply] I am Mount Svengali. You will do as I say.

Anne: [after being asked by her sister if she's troubled by anything] I feel wonderful; I just wish others would stop treating me like an invalid.
Joel: How about a wheelchair?

[after Anne falls on top of Alan Brooks (played by Forrest Tucker) as he's reading his newspaper]
Alan Brooks: It's fine. It was just the baseball scores.
Joel: It's just a prop, anyway.

Alan Brooks: [he and Prof. Crevett are discussing the recent string of climbing accidents on the mountain] Where people climb mountains, there are lots of accidents.
Prof. Crevett: That's true; and sometimes- the bodies- they disappear. But here, the search parties go out, and always they find nothing. Why do you suppose that is?
Servo: [as Brooks] They're not good search parties?

Joel: What's a giant eye going to do, pick you up and wink you to death?

Servo: Is there a sequel to this movie?
Crow: Yeah; The Eye-ger Sanction!
Servo: Starring Burl Eye-ves.

[Joel chastises the bots for continuous eye puns; however, moments later...]
Joel: I spy with my little eye...
Servo: You hypocrite!

[Anne is feeling faint after the giant eyes attacking the observatory have been killed and set ablaze by an air strike. Alan Brooks tends to her]
Alan Brooks: Let's get you outside and have some fresh air.
Servo: I don't think outside is the best place for fresh air right now.

Gypsy: I got an itch!

Dr. Ernhardt: [entering Deep 13; first lines] Clay; Clay, I think I was spotted on my way down here!
Dr. Forrester: Did you wear your disguise?
Dr. Ernhardt: I was, but I just don't look that good in heels.
Dr. Forrester: No-one must know we're down here doing this!
Dr. Ernhardt: [meekly] I'm sorry.

The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy

[Erhardt and Forrester are preparing an invention for the Mad Scientist Convention]
Dr. Erhardt: [to Forrester] Promise me if you lose the contest you aren't going to blow up the whole convention center again.
Dr. Forrester: I only did that once! [Erhardt sternly clears his throat] OK, twice.
Dr. Erhardt: It was three times!
Dr. Forrester: The third time I used the incendiaries, and it didn't make the building blow up, it just made it burn. Really... quickly.

Dr. Erhardt: [while introducing their creation for the Invention Exchange, a chalkboard vinyl on a record player] Okay- so you're throwing a party, it's 3 AM, and none of the guests are leaving. That's when you bring out the Chalkman!
Dr. Forrester: Yes, as every self-respecting scientist knows, the sound of human fingernails on a chalkboard is most annoying. It initiates the primal fear response in all mammals, much like a chimpanzee scurrying across the plains of the Serengeti. Simply put your Chalkman on the platen. [shows record] Now this is a real chalkboard. (Set on) Side B; excellent. And you'll just notice the tonearm has real human fingernails embedded in the hand, now place it on the platen... [scratches the disc, creating a shrill sound] Now open it.
Dr. Erhardt: They'll stay.
Dr. Forrester: Close it. [shrill scratching sound continues]
Dr. Erhardt: They'll leave.
Dr. Forrester: And so on and so forth.

Servo: [attempting to shoo away a swarm of Demon Dogs from the Satellite of Love] Puppy party's over; everybody off! This is Tom Servo, your worst doggy nightmare!

Enoch, King of the Demon Dogs: [as he explains he's willing to help drive away the Dogs] First we'll exchange pleasantries, then, we will drink Tranya.
Crow: [snarkily] From a dish off the floor, boy?

Radar Men from the Moon, Chapter 1 (short)

[two thugs hired by the Moon Men try to sneak behind Cody whilst he is working in his lab]
Servo: Oh, I'd hate to shoot a butt like that!

[A door opens, revealing Retik, ruler of the moon, and two identically dressed minions.]
Crow [as Retik/Larry]: I am Orkon. This is my brother Xenon and my other brother Xenon.

Commando Cody: Do you mind telling me why your men are carrying out that campaign of destruction on Earth?
Servo [as Retik]: It's an election year.
Retik: Not at all. They are merely softening up your defenses for our impending invasion.
Commando Cody: Why do you want to invade the Earth?
Retik: Because the atmosphere on the Moon has become so thin and dry, it is impossible for us to raise food, except in pressurized greenhouses.
Joel [as Cody]: Get a humidifier!

The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (movie)

[Dr. Almada voices-over scenes of the doomed romance between Aztec maiden Xochi and warrior Popoca.]
Dr. Almada: So they decided to run away, even though it was her sacred duty to preserve her maidenhood and be sacrificed to the god Tezcatlipoca.
Joel [as Dr. Almada]: The god of decaffeinated coffee.
Dr. Almada: They were discovered by the tribal priests.
[A priest receives a steaming bowl, turning to the restrained Popoca to force-feed him.]
Servo [as Dr. Almada]: They prepared hearty soups and broths and forced them on their guests, for they truly knew how to handle a hungry man.

[A priest carries the prone Xochi up the aisle to the sacrificial altar.]
Joel: Kind of looks like Dirty Dancing, doesn't it?
Servo [as Xochi]: [singing to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life"]
I've reached the end of my life
And I'm waiting for the knife to fall.

Servo: [as Popaca reveals himself as the titular Aztec Mummy] I am not an animal; I am a Aztec Mummy!

[from a distance in a cemetery, Dr. Krupp and his scarred henchman Bruno observe the Aztec Mummy of Popoca]
Bruno: [of Popoca] You stinkin' devil! How I'd like to chop your rotten flesh to pieces!
Joel: Bruno, stop letting hate run your life.

[The evil Dr. Krupp unveils his creation, a "human robot".]
Dr. Krupp: Tonight I'm going to put it to the supreme test!
Joel: The Cosmo sex quiz?

Dr. Krupp: [continues to boast about his "human robot"] With its shining pension, no human being on this earth can oppose me!
Servo: Wait, a human robot? There's a flaw right there.

Crow: [while Popoca tears apart Krupp's robot with relative ease] I looked up "anticlimax" in the dictionary; it said "See 'Aztec Mummy'."

Mad Monster


Radar Men from the Moon, Chapter 2 (short)

[After the stars a list of names under "With" comes up.]
Joel: These are the extras...they'll probably get killed.

[Last week's cliffhanger is resolved by Cody simply diving away from a ray blast.]
Servo: Oh, if they'd only shown him diving out of the way, I wouldn't have spent the week worrying about him.

Joel: [as Cody is fighting off a henchman] Just give him a headbutt. Give him a headbutt! He's just wearing spandex on his head!

Servo: [as Cody beats up Retik] That's for Bryant Gumbel; that's for Gene Shalit; and that's for dressing up like Carmen Miranda! God, that was dumb!
Crow: Those are all Bob Mackie creations, aren't they?

Cody: [as he and one of his fellow scientists are fleeing an approaching Moon Men tank, pointing towards a narrow cliff opening] Maybe we can dodge around those rocks and lose 'em.
Servo: Maybe you can use the ray gun. Y'know the big one that blows up things? Like Moon Cars, perhaps?

Mad Monster (movie)

Servo: Why does he have to kill them to prove his point? Can't he just show them a pie chart or something?

Prof. Blaine: Mingling the blood of man and beast is downright sacrilege!
Joel: Tell that to the NFL!

[Prof. Blaine is pacing around aimlessly instead of fulfilling his promise to Dr. Cameron that he'd inject Petro with Cameron's werewolf serum.]
Servo: Just shoot him! You told him you would. Don't pad your part!

Servo: [singing to the tune of The Beverly Hillbillies theme as a farmer encounters Petro in the swamp]

Come and listen to the story of a man named Jed A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed Then one day, he was shooting at some food...

Joel: [joining in] ...And up from the swamp came a big ugly dude.
Servo: Wolfman, that is; black teeth, gnarled face.
[the farmer attempts to shoot at Petro twice, but it doesn't even phase the wolfman as he lumbers forward]
Servo: The next thing you know, old Jed was really scared.

The kin folk said "Jed, get away from there!" Said "My cabin is the place I ought to be," So he loaded up his drawers and he told his family...

Joel: Good one, Crow.
Servo: [I'm] Servo.
Crow: Ah, over here.
Joel: Right, sorry; good one, Servo. [turns towards Crow] You too, Crow.
Servo: [unenthused] Gee, thanks, Ed!
Crow: I didn't do anything.

Dr. Cameron: [to Prof. Fitzgerald] I could give you an injection that would grant you the strength of ten men.
Crow: [as Cameron] ...And their hair.
Dr. Cameron: Or- following the line of evolution- how about a pair of donkey's ears? Ha! Something more fitting your level of intelligence!
Joel: [sarcastically] Oh, nice quip; really tagged 'em there.

Prof. Fitzgerald: [towards Dr. Cameron] I do not care to be ridiculed by a charlatan!
Servo: [as Fitzgerald] Or you!

Lenore: [confides to her father Cameron about her concerns over their house] There's something here that's evil. It's real and I can feel it; and I'm afraid!
Servo: [as Lenore] It makes me want to sing!

Officer: [towards reporter Tom, as they observe the recently murdered Professor Blaine] This should make a gory enough story for your paper.
Tom: It's more than just a story to me; [Cameron] was my friend.
Joel: [as Tom] It would make a great story. Maybe even a movie- with a sequel!

[Dr. Cameron has successfully turned his gardener into a werewolf and back again.]
Servo [as Dr. Cameron]: That felt good... Now I'm going to turn my daughter into a woodchuck.

[Lenore and Tom are discussing what could've happened to a wounded Prof. Fitzgerald]
Lenore: Fitzgerald was driving Petro into town with him. Surely you don't think-
Tom: I don't know what to think!
Servo: [as Tom] And stop calling me Shirley!

Petro: [snapped out of a trance towards Lenore by Dr. Cameron] I don't know what's come over me; I must have a touch of Swamp Fever.
Dr. Cameron: That's very likely. Now off to bed; I'll get something for it.
Servo: I had a Marsh Rash once.

Crow and Servo: [with their heads swapped, whilst speaking in unison] Hey, are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Servo: You like long walks in the rain?
Crow: Chinese food?
Servo: Mushing up your ice cream?
Crow and Servo: [in unison] Oh, yes! We love us! Our collective brains are more powerful than Joel's! There is nothing that can stand in our way. We have seen the future and it is us; massage us into your scalp! We are all one; all powerful... YES! We are Servo Crow-ation, and we shall rule the wor- [Joel shuts them both off]
Joel: [in bemusement] My robots; I think I'll keep 'em- turned off.

Prof. Fitzgerald: [viewing Cameron's lab] You seem to be excellently equipped.
Servo [as Dr. Cameron]: Thank you! I didn't think you could tell through these trousers.

Women of the Prehistoric Planet

[Klutzy Lt. Bradley demonstrates martial arts and winds up somersaulting to the ground.]
Lt. Bradley: Hi-keeba! Hup!
Servo: You know, I could watch that all day.

[Running gag: Anytime Lt. Bradley attempts comic relief.]
Joel, Servo, and Crow: SHUT UP!!!

[On the prehistoric planet, Dr. Farrell looks into the bubbling pond that swallowed a crewman.]
Joel: Is he primordial soup yet?

[Tang serenades Linda with music played on a pan-flute]
Crow: Now he's going to play the world's most loved melodies, a la Zamfir.


Servo: [as Tang] Get me; I'm the master of the pan-flute!

[At the end of the movie, as romantic soundtrack music plays, Cmdr. Scott and Lt. Karen Lamont gaze into each other's eyes.]
Joel [as Scott]: I know our affair wasn't set up in this film, but… let's be part of the Loose-End Festival anyhow.

Servo: [as one of the scouts ends up mauled by a giant fake-looking spider] My God, how horrible! To be killed by a plush toy!

Linda: [in disgust as the crew refuses to search further for her love, Tang] I hate you; I hate all of you!
Joel: Jeez, don't say hi then!

The Corpse Vanishes


Radar Men from the Moon, Chapter 3 (short)

Crow: [while a shot of Cody's ship returning to Earth plays] Why does the Earth have a shadow?
Servo: Why are there clouds in space?
Crow: Why are we watching this?
Servo: Daddy, what's Vietnam?

Retik: [demanding for his henchmen waiting on Earth to be prepared for the arrival of Cody and his team of scientists] Will you have a ray gun completed by the time he lands?!
Kropp: I'm afraid that's impossible, your Excellency.
Crow: [as Kropp] All the hardware stores are closed!

The Corpse Vanishes (movie)

[After a bride "dies" at the altar, two men carry her out on a stretcher, still in her poofy wedding dress.]

Crow [as Dr. Lorenz]: Now you might feel a little sting...
[Mrs. Lorenz shrieks loudly.]
Crow [as Dr. Lorenz]: OK, a big sting.

Dr. Foster: [as he assists in defending Patricia's testimony to her boss about Dr. Lorenz] The glands in our body help determine the condition of our teeth, the texture of our hair...
Crow: [as Dr. Foster] The cut of our jib.
Joel: Learning is fun!

Crow: No one could hold a candle to him in this role. Well, maybe they could douse him in something flammable and then hold a candle to him.

[during the RAM chip segment]
Crow: Good thing about the movie: we got to meet an entire family of mutants!
Joel: [chuckles] OK...and a bad thing?
Crow: They were all so stupid, they tried to commit inconspicuous acts of murder on the most conspicuous day of a woman's life!
Joel: [impressed] You, my friend, get a RAM chip!

The Crawling Hand

[In a diner, some kids are dancing around a jukebox. The owner of the diner walks up and turns it off.]
Owner: No dancing, not allowed.
Joel: This is just like Footloose.

[Moments later in the same diner, when Marta is about to say something.]
Crow [as Owner]: No acting, not allowed.
. . .
[Marta shows her rat in a cage for her science experiment at the diner]
Owner: No rats.
Joel [as Owner]: Unless they're on the menu.
[even later, as Paul attempts to throttle the diner owner while under the hand's influence]
Joel: [as Owner] No strangling, not allowed.

[Paul and Marta are engaged in a passionate embrace on the beach.]
Crow: Hey! Is this From Here to Eternity?
Servo: No, it just seems like an eternity.

[Buxom Marta, changing into her swimsuit behind a rock, loudly converses with Paul on the other side of the rock.]
Marta: Paul... what does it mean, I'm "stacked"? And you're "not with it"?
Paul: "Stacked"?
Crow [as Paul]: "Stacked" means you're really smart.

Joel: [as Sheriff Townsend/Skipper to Paul] Where's the little body, little buddy?

Sheriff Townsend: Did you hear anything... footsteps... a door opening?
Crow [as Sheriff]: The sound of one hand clapping?

[NASA doctor Weitzberg scans Paul, recovering in the hospital, with a geiger counter.]
Dr. Weitzberg: Not a trace. Not a solitary trace.
Joel: Must be a talent meter.

Servo: [being dragged back to his seat by Joel] This is Buddhist! You invented us to suffer!

Joel: [of Servo and Crow griping] I'm surrounded by idiots of my own design!

[Graber, who is trying to escape, shoots at Commander Cody]
Joel: Right, right. Shoot him. That's your solution to everything. Something gets in your way, you pull out your little gun and you gotta shoot them. Well mister listen, someday there's going to be a flying Rocketeer behind you who's going to shoot back.

Robot Monster (movie)

[Space-helmeted, ape-like alien Ro-Man makes his first viewscreen contact with the last human survivors.]
Ro-Man: Humans! Listen to me!
Servo: [in a dopey tone of voice] Okay!
Ro-Man: Due to an error in calculation, there are still a few of you left.
Joel [as Ro-Man]: We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused you.

Servo: [a shot of a rocket traveling to the space platform plays] It's a V-2 rocket!
Crow: Could've had a V-8! [Joel slaps Crow upside the head] Joke, Joel. [It was] a joke!
Servo: I thought it was hilarious! [Joel slaps Servo on the dome]

[After the destruction of the space platform, Ro-Man addresses the human survivors]
Ro-Man: And now, of the two billion, there are six. Calculate your chances. Negative, negative, negative.
Crow: He's so negative!

[Shortly before the conclusion, Joel and the Bots discuss the movie.]
Joel: Isn't it kind of weird? It's like, there's a guy in a gorilla suit, and there's— he's got a robot head, and inside he's got kind of a bunch of clay… I mean, I've seen Dali paintings that make more sense than this movie does.
Servo: Yeah, but I think there's a fine line between surrealism and costume-shop closeouts.

[Ro-Man clumsily struggles with Alice and Roy.]
Joel: That, ladies and gentlemen, is the destroyer of the universe. I rest my case.

[Ro-Man shows signs of weakness before his boss, the Great Guidance.]
Great Guidance: To think for yourself is to be like the hu-man!
Servo [as Ro-Man]: Me-man?
Ro-Man: Yes. [distressed] To be like the hu-man! To laugh… feel… want… Why are these things not in The Plan?!
Great Guidance: You are an extension of the Ro-Men, and a Ro-Man you will remain. Now I set you into motion. One — destroy the girl. Two — destroy the family. Fail, and I will destroy you.
Joel [as Ro-Man]: Uh, what's number three? Do I get a choice?
Servo [as Great Guidance]: Do not violate ape law!

Crow: [while Johnny is walking past ruins of civilization on the way home] It's the Berlin Wall!
Joel: Uh, this is the apocalypse; I think that's the Great Wall of Cleavland.

[as the closing shot of Ro-Man walking towards the camera loops]
Crow: Is this the end of the film, Joel?
Joel: Uh, I don't think it is.
Servo: You ever had deja vu, Joel?
Joel: Huh? What?
[after the third time they repeat themselves]
Joel: We've gotta get out of here.
Servo: This is pathetic! [pause] You ever had deja vu, Joel?
Crow: Stop it!

The Slime People

Crow: [in an upbeat mood while Joel and Servo are groggy from waking up] Here's a little morning poem. Birdie with the yellow bill hopped upon my windowsill; cocked his shining eye and said "What's for breakfast, Grandma?".

Dr. Ernhardt: [during the Invention Exchange, holding a mound of cotton candy] We came up with cotton candy that screams when you bite it! [to Dr. Forrester] May I?
Dr. Forrester: Enjoy!
Cotton Candy: [as Ernhardt bites down] Ow! That's my head! Owwww!
Dr. Forrester: Well, what do you think of that?
Joel: [disgusted] You're toying with God's blueprint; that's what I think!

Joel: [of the fact "The Slime People" ended up getting made at all] The real beauty of this movie is that it actually got made. The guy who made it isn't a fool; he just convinced some people that is was worth making. You know, whether it was a good idea, or it could make money, or it satisfied some bizarre urge in the viewing public.
Servo: Oh, I see; so it's the gullibility of humans that allows things like this to exist!
Joel: I guess you're right.

Radar Men from the Moon, Chapter 6 (short)

[Joel and the Bots watch exactly the same opening credits they've seen five times before.]
Servo: It is sort of hypnotic, isn't it?
Crow: Hip? Not. Ick!

Crow: [as a café owner waking up Cody after he was knocked out in an altercation with Retik's Earth henchmen] Wake up, Cody; you owe me $400!

Cody: [in a phone call back to fellow scientist Joan as he prepares to ambush Retik's Earth henchmen] Call the police and tell them to block the highway on the other side of the mountain.
Crow: [as Joan, making a phone call] Hello, police? Block the mountain on the other side of the highway!

The Slime People (movie)

[After landing at a deserted L.A. airport, Tom Gregory tries and fails to get an operator on a payphone.]
Servo [as Gregory]: Maybe I dialed wrong. Let me try again. Let's see… "zero".
Crow [as Answering Machine]: Hi. This is the human race. We're not in right now. Please speak clearly after the sound of the bomb.

Cal Johnson: [after chatting with fellow survivor Bonnie during the night and sharing a kiss] Gee whiz, you know as long as you're sitting here, I don't even want to think about Slime People.
Crow: [continuing as Cal] Though it's hard, looking at a mug like yours.

[Tolliver, planning a mocking exposé about the slime-people frenzy, leaves the car to find a typewriter in a building.]
Gregory: [towards Tolliver] Noone's home! Genius waits for no one!
Crow: But stupidity hammers on deserted buildings.
. . .
[Finally encountering the slime people, Tolliver returns, cowering in the car.]
Tolliver: I… I've never seen anything like it!
Servo: Even in Tijuana!
. . .
[Cal turns around to avoid a crowd of shambling refugees, who then pursue them.]
Joel: Lookit — they're all on their way to a George Romero film festival!

[As Gregory and Cal search for blonde Bonnie Galbraith in the mist-laden field, Gregory bends down to pick up something.]

Crow: At night.
Joel: In a fog.

Crow: [Cody's spaceship prepares to take off] Ron Howard pops the clutch, and tells the Moon to eat my dust!

(the short suddenly cuts to white)

Joel: W-What happened?
Crow: Hey...
Servo: What?

Joel: The film broke?

(Joel and the bots start booing and throwing things at the screen)

Valeria: Dawk One, please...
The Dark One: Torque, take her away from my sight!
Valeria: No, Dawk One, please! I will pwove myself to yu!
Joel: Taking someone out of an omnipresent being's sight is kind of hard, isn't it?

[A severed head rolls past]
Servo: Oh, it's a spare!
Crow: Gutter head.

Crow [as Deeja]: [after seeing the mutated state of Jorn at the hands of the Dark One] Dad, you're a tulip bulb!

Moon Zero Two

[Joel and the Bots enter the theater as the animated credits play.]
Servo: [excited] Hey it's in color!
Joel: Yeah.
Servo: Really bad music already, this is great.
. . .
Servo: Is this a Pink Panther movie?
Joel: No, I think it's a, like, NASA simulation, kind of like.
Servo: Why would they use cartoons?
Joel: Uh, so astronauts could understand them.

[As the moon buggy overheats and explodes, the jazz soundtrack lets out a piercing wail.]
Servo: Oh, no — the jazz combo was in there!!

Crow: Kaboom! would become Don't Smoke on the Bridge Because It's an Oxygen-Enriched Atmosphere and You Could Cause an Explosion!

Crow: [as a police officer] After him! He's hiding behind those credits!

[Penny helps a farmhand lift a bale over the top of a fenced enclosure to another farmhand inside.]
Crow [as Penny]: Hey, who's the guy in the cage?
Servo [as Farmhand]: Well, that's my brother-cousin. He likes sody-pop.

[After a long day slave-laboring in the cotton fields, the peppy teen convicts dance at a sock hop in their quarters.]
Joel: That's the problem with today's youth. This is how their image of prison is.

Jane: Penny went up to the boss's house, and she's still there! And it doesn't take an hour and a half to sing a song.
Crow: Maybe it's Aida.

Bob Steele: [telling his mother, the Judge, about the passing of a farmhand named "Baby"] That's the worst part about it — she… she dies in a strange place without friends or anybody, and nobody even knows her name.
Crow: She shoulda died at Cheers — then everyone woulda known her name.

[Penny (blonde bombshell Mamie Van Doren) performs a calypso song and dance, backed by male dancers.]

Servo [as Narrator]: And then tragedy struck — we ran out of stock footage!

[Scientists Hank Scott and Artur Ramos pause in their driving after hearing some odd roaring noises.]

Joel, Crow, Servo: [singing] Two bottles of beer in the jeep / Two bottles of beer / Take one down, pass it around / One bottle… beer in the jeep.

[Hank and Artur investigate around an abandoned house and find the corpse of a police officer hanging in the tree branches]
Crow: [as Bob Barker] What's behind this tree? It's a dead cop!
Servo: [as Game Show Announcer] Yes, Bob; it's a 1953 Seniora Policia, complete with .38 snub-nosed revolver, dilated pupils, and rigor-mortis. You too will sleep soundly in your very own Seniora Policia!
Joel: [adding a "prize disclaimer"] From Spiegel Catalog, Chicago, IL, 60609.

[Searching for a path toward the volcano, Hank spies a woman on a bucking horse through his binoculars.]
Hank: … I found something a lot more interesting!
Joel: Hey, it's Dale Evans, and I thought she was stuffed!
Crow: Only mounted. [N]

Servo: [as the scorpion attacks outside of town and causes chaos] It's Crazy Days! We're slashing and dashing prices! Yes, all giant scorpions get in free; free hot dogs and balloons for the kids. Yes, come on down and visit me in coke jail; I'm in coke prison! Get me out; get me out! Come on down to Crazy Days, this Sunday!

[With the heroes and the local authorities, Dr. Velazco reviews their situation.]
Dr. Velazco: But we have a few advantages against this enemy. First—
Servo [as Velazco]: We're small. We can run fast.
Dr. Velazco: Plus, we have the daylight hours to try to find and destroy it. Secondly, they're somewhat slow and lethargic.
Crow [as Velazco]: And we have giant 40-foot pincers! Uh, no, wait — that's the scorpion's good point.

[A giant scorpion derails the train, cars piling on top of each other.]
Crow [as Tour Guide]: Now, if you'll look out the left side of your train, you'll see the right side of the train…
Servo [as Scorpion]: Mmm-mmm! Canned people. Mmm. Scorpions just love trains.
[The passengers flee the train.]
Joel [as Company Rep]: Uh, we at Amtrak would like to apologize for any inconvenience it might have caused… This rarely ever happens.

Rocket Attack U.S.A. (movie)

[On the SOL, the Bots are playing Civil Defense Quiz Bowl. Joel hosts.]
Joel: All right, let's get things started with a toss-up question. What three word slogan was coined during the Cold War as a schoolchild's best defense against an A-bomb attack? [Servo buzzes in] Tom Servo of Oak Ridge!

Crow: [while the SOL crew laugh] Nice improvisation on a standard theme! Joel, (your turn).
Joel: This invention is really something more of an organic nature. I sorta created it accidentally; when you've been marooned in space as long as I have, some of your personal effects can tend to get a bit randy. That's why I made this- the incredibly stinky sweat-socks. [pulls out two socks supported on wooden sticks, and both Crow and Servo faint from the stench] Works every time!

[Joel flails around a lemur puppet on a table while Crow and Servo sing]
Servo: It's Joey the Lemur, a friend to mankind; a furry sort of monkey friend, he really does shine.
Joel: Joey the Lemur, he's really to hug a lot and talk to, so fun, fun, fun!
Crow: Joey the Lemur, he'll run everywhere; Joey the Lemur, what heck kind of animal is it anyway? Joey the Lemur, the kind of animal that would go to the bathroom anywhere- there's more.
Joel: That's okay. This is the lemur- native to Philippines and Madagascar, uh, and fictional planets like Nova. Uh, he's a clean, gregarious and good pet. [as Joey] You said it, pal! Boy, oh boy, pal of mine! You're the one for me!
Servo: Uh-oh, Joel's swinging into his puppet routine.
Joel: [as Joey, hitting Servo] Hey, can it, fire-plug! I've heard enough out of you! Let me tell you all a story.
Servo: [singing] Joey the Lemur, he'll say what he thinks!
Joel: [as Joey] Boy, will I ever! I'll carry on like a Gilbert Gottfried from the animal world, I don't mind tellin' you! I'm the Clown Prince of the Animal Kingdom who's often mistaken for our friend the chimpanzee. But make no mistake, I'm not saying anything wrong about our chimpanzee brethren, just hoping- here's hoping- they send a little more work our way.


Servo: L is for "Lemur"...
Joel: [as Joey] L is for Lemur- 'nuff said!
Crow: E is for "eat".
Joel: [as Joey] E is for eat. I eat four times my weight in nuts and berries; which has its consequences, but go figure!
Crow: M is for "monkey"!
Joel: [as Joey] M is for monkey... I'm often mistaken for a monkey; it goes with the territory, alright? On with the show!
Servo: U is for "unusual"...
Crow: ...and "unpredictable"!
Joel: [as Joey] Unpredictable is right! I once took a whiz on Johnny Carson's sports coat! I don't travel well; let's go!
Servo: [uneasy] Uh, R is for "radical"...
Crow: ...and "rambunctious"! [immediately ends up involuntarily mounted by Joey]
Joel: [as Joey] Randy as a jackrabbit; that's me, alright! Whoo-hoo!
Servo: Yes, it's the splendiferous lemur!
Crow: Friend to all mankind!

X Marks the Spot (short)

[title card features a large X, with Marks the Spot fading in atop it.]
Crow: Marks the Spot? Is that like Mack the Knife?

[Seated, non-actor New Jersey commissioner Arthur Magee gives a prologue to the 1944 traffic-safety short.]
Commissioner Magee: The loss of life, or any disabling injury to a war worker, means a definite setback to our war plan.
Crow [as Magee]: If you kill yourself here, you can't kill them over there.
Commissioner Magee: We kill…
Servo: Sounds like Commissioner Fudd.
Commissioner Magee: …and maim our fellow countrymen, without malice, without hatred, without thinking.
Joel: Without ENERGY! Would you wake up?! Come on!
. . .
Servo [as Magee/Elmer Fudd]: You can't see it fwom here, but my towso is fused to a bwock of gwanite.

[The scene fades to an intersection]
Narrator: Now here's an intersection near where Joe lived.
Crow [as Narrator]: Called "Blood Alley."
Narrator: No stop signs, the kind of place where nobody bothered to stop or slow down...
Joel [as Narrator]: It made you feel happy.
[Scene pans to a car approaching]
Narrator: Here comes someone from one direction and...
[Pan to another car coming the opposite way]
Narrator: ...uh-oh... here comes Joe from the other.
Joel [as Narrator]: Let's watch the fun! Hee-hee! The joke will be on Joe!
[Cut to a pedestrian watching the corner. As the cars approach each other, he plugs his ears, and closes his eyes tightly just before impact.]
Servo: Well, I guess he can't be a witness...

[in Heaven's Traffic Court, the judge (presumably God) is filing over paperwork while Joe's Angel attempts to get his attention]
Servo: [as Judge] Dear Diary... it's hard being God.

Angel: [while defending Joe in Heaven's Traffic Court] I wouldn't say Joe was out looking for trouble...
Crow: [as the Angel] But I did find him down by the waterfront in a Spartan costume yelling "Kitty! Kitty!".

Judge: [addressing Joe's past transgressions as a driver] Incidentally, was there any traffic law he didn't violate?
Joe: Oh; I never hit-and-run.
Joel: [as Judge] Well, that changes everything!
Judge: If you did, then you'd be booked in- [clears throat]
Crow: In phlegm?
Judge: -in a lower court. You never hit and run? Why that's so despicable of an act, I wouldn't even accuse you of it.
Crow: [as Judge, muttering] Never hit and run; why I oughta-

King Dinosaur (movie)

[the movie begins with a credit for producer Robert Lippert, who the SOL crew are more than familiar with at this point]
Servo: Lippert? Oh, yikes!
Joel: Mars is extending us a welcome!
Servo: French-fried potatoes!

Narrator: [introducing the scientists assigned to travel and observe planet Nova] If animal life is discovered on Nova, an expert on zoo-geography would be a most important member. [Dr. Gordon is shown observing a saber toothed tiger skull carefully] On August 10, Dr. Richard Gordon was chosen to fill that position. He became famous for his discovery of the giant prehistoric tar pits near Salt Lake City.
Crow: [as Dr. Gordon] I'd say this patient is dead. I'm no expert, but dead is the word.
Narrator: [cuts to showing mineralogist Nora Pierce mining sediment out of a wall formation] The study of rock formations and its minerals is a lot like reading the personal diary of a planet.
Servo: Yes, it's not very polite.
Narrator: Dr. Nora Pierce joined the space expedition of August 27; her doctorate in Mineralogy was awarded for her mineralogical research in the Himalayas.
Joel: And she's cute too.

[the rocket ship is slowly landing on the planet Nova]
Joel: [as John F. Kennedy ] I believe by the end of this decade, we will land a piece of stock footage on another planet. Ask not what a processed shot can do for you.

[one of the scientists sees a superimposed wasp descend upon their campsite]
Crow: [as scientist/Martin Brody] I'm gonna get a bigger shoe. We're gonna get a bigger shoe, right?

[while the scientists attempt to flee from a iguana dinosaur with their kinkajou lemur in tow]
Servo: [to the "dinosaur"] Hey, come over here! You wanna meet Joey?
Joel: [as Joey] No!! I told you this would happen! Please, I abhor you! Get out of here!

[Two "scientists" are watching a "menacing" iguana T. rex.]
Dr. Bennett: Oh Ralph, what is it?!
Crow: [yelling] It's an iguana, now shut up!

Servo: [as everyone scrambles to flee the island as an atomic bomb ticks away to detonation] Anybody got the time? It's a little matter of an atomic bomb.

First Spaceship on Venus

[Brinkman runs up to Dr. Sumiko, a female Asian crewmember, before the flight.]
Brinkman: Sumiko!
Crow [as Sumiko/Groucho Marx]: I will as soon my lawyer gets here.
Sumiko: Brinkman! [An uneasy moment passes.] Have I changed that much?
Joel [as Brinkman]: Yeah, you used to be a Swedish man!

[Astronaut Brinkman accidentally kicks a rock into a pool of magma, which throws it back. A rockslide showers Brinkman and Sumiko.]
Crow [as Brinkman]: Uhh... note to myself: don't throw rocks at magma.

[The astronauts run up a ramp to escape an oozing, Blob-like slick chasing them.]
Joel: Hey, where's Steve McQueen when you need him?

[Prof. Sikarna gives a long boring exposition]
Crow: Well, that's very interesting, but does it belong in the script?

Godzilla vs. Megalon

Joel, Crow, & Servo: Rex Dart, Eskimo Spy!

[At the lakeside picnic, little Rokuro (Rok-san) frantically paddles his watercraft during an earthquake. On shore, Goro glances at Jinkawa.]

Servo: [Snorts] Rockets!
Crow: On a picnic?
. . .
Rokuro: Help me! Hurry up!
Joel: Hey, you're in no position to make demands, kid!
. . .
[Goro fires the "rocket" at Rok-san, who catches the attached rope and secures his end around his watercraft.]
Servo: Guess a rocket is standard picnicking equipment in Japan, isn't it?
Joel: Yeah.
Servo: Yep!
Crow [as Picnicker]: Well, let's go on a picnic. Let's see, we got our food, beverages, and 50 feet of uncoiled rope…

[Goro, Jinkawa, and Rok-san return to the laboratory.]
Jinkawa: [to Goro] Hey, it would be funny if the earthquake destroyed your robot!
Joel [as Goro]: Yeah, it would be funny if the earthquake killed your FAMILY!

[During a montage of Goro welding and assembling his robot]
Crow [as a Narrator]: Industry: creating a better world. Our most valuable resource? People! He's a maniac! A maniac! And he's dancing like he's never danced before! He's a steel town boy on a Saturday...
. . .
[As the camera pans up to reveal the finished robot, Jet Jaguar]
Joel: They've just created Jennifer Beals.

[Scene: an obvious toy helicopter hovers over obvious toy army jeeps.]
Joel [as Capt. Willard]: Saigon. I can't believe I'm in a model of Saigon.

[As Jet Jaguar flies around in the sky above them]
Goro: Isn't that Jet Jaguar there?
Servo: [Sarcastically] No, it's another superhero of your own design!
Goro: They're controlling him.
Rok-san: It's a pity we can't send Jet Jaguar to go and get Godzilla!
Crow: Yeah, it's a pity we can't kill you and get away with it!

[Jinkawa and Rokuro prepare to assault the laboratory (with a model airplane)]
Crow: Hey, is there an ethical question about taking a little kid on a dangerous mission?
Joel: Um, no.
Servo: Not this kid.
. . .
Servo [as Jinkawa]: [Sarcastically] Gee, I hope this works or little Billy will be lunch meat!

[As Megalon and Jet Jaguar continue fighting]
Servo: I know I should be excited and scared and all, but I -- all I can think of is sweaty Japanese guys...
. . .
Crow: He's got a foreign object!
Servo: He is a foreign object!

[As Godzilla finally makes it to the climactic battle]
Crow [as Godzilla/Nada]: I have come here to chew sushi and kick butt. And I'm all out of sushi.

[Jet Jaguar is curled up on the ground after being shot out of the air by Megalon. The latter stands over him, gloating.]
Crow [as Megalon/General Zod]: You will bow down before me, Jet Jaguar!
Joel [as Jet Jaguar/Bond]: Do you expect me to talk?
Crow [as Megalon/Goldfinger]: No, Jet Jaguar. I expect you to die!
Servo: Oh, very good, guys. Uh, kind of a James Bond thing there.

[Megalon is taunting Godzilla.]
Servo [as Megalon]: Nyah nyah, nyah nyah nyah! Your father was a lizard! Your mother was an A-bomb! ...Your uncle was a robot!

[Godzilla slowly lifts Megalon by his tail high into the air.]
Servo [as Sportscaster]: Godzilla is either breaking the laws of physics, or he's throwing around an empty rubber suit!

[After the final battle, Godzilla walks away.]
Rok-san: Godzilla! Bye-bye!
Servo [as Goro]: Thanks for leveling our country!

[Goro attempts to control Jet Jaguar using his control medallion.]
Goro: [Into medallion] Jet Jaguar! Let's go home!

Cave Dwellers

[The movie credits show: Miles O'Keefe]
Crow: How much Keefe is in this movie?
Servo: Oh, Miles O' Keefe!

Ator: Man's destiny is predetermined.
Joel: Oh, he's a Calvinist!

[Two villains have shot Mila with a bow and arrow. Mila is able to run away, so they follow chase.]
Servo [as one of the villains]: You idiot, we don't even have a doe license!

[Mila has been locked in a cell by Ator as a test of her knowledge.]
Joel [as Mila]: Let's see now, there's a superball and half a peanut and a length of kite string and a carpenter's saw.
Servo [as Mila]: What would MacGyver do?

[The narrator is introducing the characters in the film.]
Narrator: After the time of the Great Forming, there was a time when the world was populated by wild, cruel, and ignorant men.
Servo: Oh, you mean the '80s.

[In the flashback, Ator the Invicible fights a giant spider.]
Crow: He never killed, uh, that big a puppet before.

[Ator is attacked by the same primitive-looking cavemen from the first scene in the movie.]
Crow: Oh! These must be the "Cave Dwellers"!
Servo: Yes ladies and gentlemen, thirty-five minutes into the film and we finally have our first plot point!

[Ator and Thong are attacked by invisible enemies.]
Joel: I don't believe it — they were too cheap to hire villains in this movie.

[The camera pans over a group of snakes, which suddenly make highly non-snake-like growling noises.]
Servo: ...what?
[Another pan over snakes, another set of growling noises.]
Servo: Uh... folks, we have snakes growling here...

[Ator is battling a pathetic-looking snake puppet.]
Joel: Hey, it's not slimy at all!
Servo: That's 'cause it's made out of velour.
. . .
Servo: Just cut the wires, Ator!

[Barbarian Ator leaps from a cliff in a rather modern-looking hang-glider.]
Servo: Oh, come on.
Crow: What the…?!
Servo: [laughs]
Joel: Terrific. [childlike voice] I'm the luckiest boy in the world! I have slipped the surly bounds of Earth and touched the hand of God!
Servo: This is a little ridiculous. Okay, so… he kills a deer, he tans the hides, he stretches the skins, he makes an anodized aluminum frame, he learns how to extrude and weld… all in about five minutes, huh? […] learned aerodynamics…

[Ator glides over the castle walls, dropping hand-made bombs on the guards.]
Servo: Message for you, sir! Oh, he also made bombs while he was up there.
Joel: Looks like he's gonna carpet-bomb.

[Despite flying over a castle amidst a mountain range, Ator brings his glider in for a landing in an open field.]
Joel: Oh, he's landing in the outback now.
[The scene then switches to Ator landing on top of said castle.]
Crow: Uh— huh?
Joel: How'd he do that?
Servo [as Ator]: How'd I do that?
[Ator draws his swords and charges into battle.]
Joel: Well, I s'pose he's got a tank in the courtyard, now.
Crow: Yeah, and it's made out of coconuts.


[Gamera's beady eyes watch Kenny as he flees from the rocky sea cliff.]
Crow [as Gamera]: Those kids at school — they tease you, Kenny. Because they['ve] never tasted hell. Today, we turn the tables!

[as Kenny uncovers a pile of rocks]
Crow: Oh, it's Tibby's burial mound.
Servo: [defensive] Shut up! It's not funny. [Scoffs]
Kenny: [looking for his turtle] You there?
Servo: [beginning to get a little sad] Oh Tibby...
Kenny: Tibby?
Crow: ...or not Tibby.
Servo: It's not- Stop it! Shut up!
Kenny: Tibby!
Crow [as Kenny]: Tibby! Tibby! SQUISH! Aww, Tibby!
Servo: [getting more emotional] That's not funny! Joel, tell him to stop!
Kenny: Tibby??? Tibby!
Joel: What are you worried about? Tibby's long dead, Tom.
Servo: [gets up and begins to walk away] I'm leaving! I ha- [sobbing] I can't take this, this is terrible!
Joel: Come on back, come on.
Servo: [returning to his seat] Will you stop with the jokes?
Joel: Yeah.

[As the military prepares to destroy Gamera, little Kenny runs up to Dr. Murase and the General.]
Kenny: Don't shoot Gamera! Don't shoot Gamera! He's good, he's good!
Joel [as Dr. Murase]: Let's listen to what Kenny has to say!
Dr. Murase: Yes. It might be a mistake. Maybe we shouldn't use those missiles.
General: Why not? It's the only way to kill that monster.
Servo [as Murase]: Because Kenny said so.

[A television newsman is reporting on Gamera-related natural disasters.]
Newsman: There's going to be a special conference later this evening at the university, during which Dr. Hidaka will talk to high-ranking officers...
Crow [as Newsman]: ... and Kenny...

Dr. Murase: Gamera seems able to resist attacks by all offensive weapons known to us. Therefore, I am forced to admit there may be even greater catastrophes ahead.
Servo: More Gamera movies?

[Scene: the city of Oshima, where people are milling about.]
Announcer: The city is off-limits to civilians. Not even the press is allowed to enter the area.
Joel [as Announcer]: Kenny, however, is free to move about.

Pod People

[Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank explain the benefits of their invention: the public domain karaoke machine]
Dr. Forrester: For example, say you're at a karaoke bar. Now, what happens when someone gets on stage and wants to sing... oh, "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner?
TV's Frank: People vomit?

Dr. Forrester: Your movie today is Pod People. It has nothing to do with pods, it has nothing to do with people, it has everything to do with hurting!

[The film opens with a view through a bedroom window, with a crash of lightning and the sound of thunder.]
Crow: It was a dark and stormy night. I'd taken a creative writing course.

[One of the pod people comes upon two hunters in the woods.]
Hunter #1: What the hell is that?
Hunter #2: I don't looks like a cross between a pig and a bear!
Crow: A pear?

[a hunter comes upon the pods in a cave, and begins to violently smash them with a large stick]
Crow: Oh, what is he, an L.A. Cop?

[The band finishes singing. Rick smiles and gives the "okay" sign, but then quickly frowns.]
Rick: It stinks! [N]

[The scene cuts from the cruising camper to the cave, emitting a red glow.]
Joel: Oh, terrific — we were saved by the gates of Hell.
Crow: Hey, what is it about the gates of Hell that compels people to wander into 'em?
Joel [as Adman]: It's because of Smuckers raspberry preserves.
Crow: And what's he going to do, borrow a cup of sugar from Satan?

[The musicians park their camper by a river. The forest sounds include synthesized musical chirps.]
Servo: Syntho-birds.
Crow: Hey, it's a Casio forest.
Joel: They parked next to a data stream.

[Tommy carries a carton of milk upstairs for Trumpy.]
Joel [as Tommy]: Hey, what gives? I'm on the milk carton!

Tommy: You know what "play" means, Trumpy?
Crow [as Trumpy]: Yes, it's where I break you in half.

[Tommy shows Trumpy how to work a jigsaw puzzle.]
Tommy: You see? The pieces go together.
Joel: Oh, if only this film were so lucky.

[With Trumpy's help, Tommy sees African-veldt stock footage through his telescope.]
Joel: They got Wild Kingdom on the telescope.
. . .
Tommy: You can do magic things!
[Trumpy turns to reveal his eyes blazing with white light.]
Crow [as Trumpy]: It's called "evil", kid.
Servo: Hey, he's got his high-beams on. Hmm?
Joel: He's got Bette Davis eyes.
Crow: Orphan Annie eyes.

[The campers walk into the room to find that their friend has died. Molly solemnly leads them back out.]
Crow [as Molly]: Well, your breakfast is getting cold, and she's not getting any warmer.

Servo: Meanwhile, in another movie? [sighs] Patience, gentle viewer, it'll all make sense soon.... NOT!

Tommy's mother: Tommy, can you hear me?
Joel [as Tommy's mother]: Can you feel me near you?

(Joel has made a skit about the 'Magic' scene, with Servo and Crow suspended on wires, ascending and descending wildly and awkwardly)

Joel: I can't bring them down! I don't know how it works!
Servo: I'm stuck! I'm stuck! (screams)
. . .
Joel: Oh, we've got commercial sign!!

[Servo narrates over the movie's cheesy synthesizer soundtrack:]
Servo: Tonight on Music from The Hearts of Space, we'll go on a cosmic joyride with some space music by various bay area artists.
Servo: First up on Hearts of Space, John Tesh with Whispering Firestorm. Then it's Yanni with SnoreMaster of Trafalgamar. Then comes bay area musician DelMondo with his Sominex Suite in B-flat. Then a synthesized interplanetary salute to Perry Como. At the end of the hour, we'll have information about the types of sedatives used by tonight's artists, on Music... from... The Hearts... of Space.

Gamera vs. Barugon

[A scorpion slowly crawls on Kawajiri as he maniacally celebrates the opal's discovery.]
Servo: Death, where is thy sting? We're waiting.

Gypsy: I thought I told you kids not to play ball in the house!

Crow [as Caroline]: My piece of wood! It died so that we might live.

[An Ape military officer gathers the troops.]
Crow [as Officer]: About face! Crap in hands! Fling crap!

Caroline: Catherine, I'm scared!
Catherine: Don't worry, we're with you.
Crow: We're doomed, but with you.

Crow: C'mon! Try and move faster than the plot!

[Caroline, Johnny, and Catherine are running and hiding from ape military officers]
Catherine: Hurry, this way!
Crow: Oh, like you know where you're going!

[Trees in the background begin to tremble ominously]
Servo: AAAH! The tree's having a seizure!

Then… Peter, Paul, and Mary will be out to… give us a wonderous rendition from one of the songs off their scintillating new album. Then Hume Cronyn [and] Jessica Tandy will be out to tell us… some poignant stories of the joys and sorrows of being… really, really… horribly old.

It Conquered the World


Snow Thrills (short)

[Bobsledding wipeouts are shown in the cavalcade of snow sports.]

It Conquered the World (movie)

[Over drinks, scientist Tom Anderson (Lee Van Cleef) explains the global power shortage to his friend and fellow scientist Paul Nelson.]

Tom Anderson: The days when people made fun of me are over, girl.
Crow [as Dr. Anderson/Zod]: You will bow down before me!

[Paul Nelson (Peter Graves) observes the carnage of Tom Anderson's mutually fatal battle with the alien.]
Paul Nelson: He learned almost too late that man is a feeling creature… and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned too late for himself that men have to find their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And when men seek such perfection… they find only death… fire… loss… disillusionment… the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to the toil and misery, but it can't be given, it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside — from man himself.

Dr. Forrester: You… hocked… my… Rolex.
TV's Frank: Yah…
Dr. Forrester: Well, it's the thought that counts. Open your gift.
TV's Frank: Oh, boy! I bet it's a book! I bet it's a book!
Dr. Forrester: Yes, it is a book, Frank. It's… it's called Final Exit. I've been stealing your plasma at night so I didn't have to spend any of my own money.
TV's Frank: Heh heh. Oh, Henry! [N]

Sheriff Kyle: Pull over! This is the sheriff's office!
Crow: Office?! That's a car.

[Holly Trumball (Demi Moore) and Max Keller stroll flirtatiously toward Max's van.]
Holly: You think you, um, could stick around? I might need you.
Max: I'm going off duty for the day.
Holly: Oh sure, a loner, I got the scene. Just reading the classified ads in the local motel until Dick Powell comes running down the television alley at midnight with a gun in his hand.
Joel: Uh, let Dennis Miller do Dennis Miller, Demi.

Mr. Trumball: You got a warrant, sheriff?
Servo [as Sheriff Kyle]: Yeah, I got a made-for-tv warrant right here.

Servo [as McAllister]: Of course we are! We're in an action-packed, made-for-tv movie!
[The van makes a sharp left.]

The Castle of Fu Manchu


Crow: Staring contest on the left. Check it out.

Fu Manchu: This is Fu Manchu.
Crow [As Fu Manchu]: And you're not.

Tom Servo: [while singing along to the opening credits music as it drags on] I'm bored; I'm bored of these credits already~
Crow: C'mon, we can't keep making fun of the names. Get on with it!

Tom Servo: (as Tom, Crow, and Joel are doing a sketch of trucker characters riding magic carpets and communicating via radio) Hurry up, men, I'm running out of hard candy. Condition red, send in the clowns... oh, what's the use?! (breaks into hysterical sobbing as Crow and Joel enter)
Crow: Ah, man, Joel, he's totally off-script! There's nothing that says anything about sobbing like a broken man!
Joel: Yeah, you're right; let's see here... Tom says "Time formation, men. These kids are all over me; argh". It just says "Argh", there's nothing about sobbing pitifully.
Servo: (while still crying) I can't do it guys, I just can't do it! I can't go through another sketch loosely based off some vague reference in the movie! There are only a few kinds of fezes in this movie, then suddenly we're the Sahara Shriners riding flying carpets on Maxwell street days! Oh, why?!? Get me out of here!!
Crow: I don't understand; how is this sketch any different than anything else we do during the movie?
Joel: Well, I figure, Crow, it's not the sketch, it's this movie. I mean, look at him; he's just a broken man.
Servo: You're telling me! There's absolutely no psychological footholds in this movie! It's like trying to climb El Capitan! There's something wrong with me... there's something wrong with me!! Why? Why?!? (sobs uncontrollably)
Crow: Better you than me!
Joel: Oh, Crow, c'mon... (addresses Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank in disgust) Look at what you've done to him! Do you see what you've done to this guy?! Come on!
Dr. Forrester: (watching the scene unfold in satisfaction alongside Frank) You see Frank, it feels good to be with the winners, doesn't it?

Crow: What's the deal with Fu Manchu, anyway? It's not like he's really evil; he's just dull! He's like some twisted beauracrat in silk jammies!

Joel: (after trying, and failing, to cheer the bots up with a sketch about the backstory of Fu Manchu; crying) Oh, what's the use?! Why am I up here? What are you doing to us?!
Dr. Forrester: (mockingly) Auntie Em, Auntie Em!

(Fu Manchu sits down; the crew all make raspberry noises)

Servo: Oh... King's on his throne.

Dr. Forrester: (gloating over their perceived victory in leaving Joel and the bots broken by the movie) Well, we should be expecting your surrender any moment now.
Joel: You haven't won, Dr. Forrester; you've lost. And I feel sorry for you. You're nothing but a sad little man in a hole in the ground who can only feel power by hurting others. Well, we won because, we survived, and we survived because, well, we're Robinsons, roughly. That's what Robinsons do is survive, basically, and well, if you think it's so easy, well, YOU should try and watch a movie sometime!
Dr. Forrester: You're sounding like a Hallmark card.

TV's Frank: (after Forrester and Frank attempt to riff on the movie themselves, only to quit after one scene) You know, we could've made funny comments, but the movie wasn't that good.
Dr. Forrester: (angrily) Frank!
Joel, Crow, and Servo: Gotcha!

Max: I hear ya. [The camera lingers on Van Patten hopefully, as though awaiting a sharper quip. Nothing comes.]
Servo [as Carrie]: You're a wry wit.

[Later, in Max's van, Carrie drones on and on while Max listens wearily.]
Joel: You know you're boring when you're boring a Van Patten.

TV's Frank: Well, I mean, c'mon Morrissey. We're basically evil, granted, but a lot of what we say is just good-natured ribbing.
Morrissey: Well, it hurt me. Did I mention that I cried?

Morrissey: This is a song that I wrote in a time in my life when I was very, very, very sad. Breakfast, actually. It's called "Hairdresser in a Coma": I cried last night, I died a million deaths. Thinking of your sweet face, and the way you sing. I cried inside, we lied and died. And then I cried again. I must have weep for hours...

[Woody and Yogi (Rae Dawn Chong), two young ruffians, are mildly injured in a post-apocalyptic gang rumble.]

Fire Maidens of Outer Space

[An example of Crow Syndrome.]
Joel: Well, anyway, with double entendre, you can say just about anything, Tom. Like: [suggestively] "Say — does this TV have a remote? Mmmmm!"
Servo: Oh-ho-ho, I see! How 'bout: [suggestively] "Say — check out the arms on this jumpsuit!" Right?
Joel: Oh, right on! Woo-hoo!
Servo: All right, yeah!
Joel: [suggestively] "As far as I know, Lincoln's not President anymore!"
Servo: Ah-ooh! Oo-hoo-hoo-hoo! [suggestively] "She came back from the store with a bag of apples, and a loaf of bread!"
Joel: Mmm-mmm-mmm!
Crow: I got one. "If the van's a rockin', don't come knock—"
Joel: Ah, Crow! Crow. That's a little bit more direct than what we were talking about.

Joel, Servo, Crow (as Atlantean girls): We, the Fire Maidens, couldn't be prouder! If you couldn't hear us, we'll yell a little louder!

Crash of the Moons

Servo:Oh, I'm tellin' ya, Gypsy, I love you!
Gypsy: Really?
Servo: And I know I'd love you, too, if only we could--
Crow: Why, you haven't a chance with a girl like her. It's me she cares for! Isn't that right, Gypsy?
Gypsy: I can't decide.
Crow: Can't decide? Well maybe this will help.

[At the end of "Gypsy Moons", Joel gets annoyed with Crow starting to sing bawdy lyrics and clamps Crow's mouth down]
Joel: Stop! Stop! We hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane. And now here's our own Al "Jazzbeaux" Collins with a message. Never again you guys. That's it.

TV's Frank: Hey, someone sent us a Banner-Gram!

Servo [as Harold]: Ooh, Maude!

Crow: [singing] I've got Sammy Davis eyes! [a la Rip Taylor] I've got a million of them! Literally!

[While trying to take a picture of a severed Eye Creature arm, the flashbulb causes it to evaporate]
Joel: Now why doesn't that work with relatives?

[Joel and the Bots review the production goofs of the movie.]
Crow: The eye creatures. Scabbing, inflexible, lethargic, mucus-expelling creatures having no spoken language and no particular powers with which to conquer. They were also unfortunate enough to have evolved with heavy-duty zippers running up their backs.
. . .
Joel: Some eye creatures are born with scaly protective covering. Others are born with hundreds of eyes protuding from fleshy knobs. Still others, like this whisper-thin fellow, are born with tight acrylic wool-blend turtleneck sweaters from Chess King.
. . .
Crow: If you're ever in a fight with an eye creature, keep in mind that his head is simply draped casually over his shoulders and should be no trouble to knock off! [...] Get ready to give chase to an injured eye creature; as you can see, he's wearing his Jack Purcell athletic shoes! Folks, they just did not care!

The Rebel Set

Gypsy: [slowly] "A train leaves a station at 2PM, going 90 miles an hour. Another train leaves another station going the opposite direction at 5PM going 60 miles an hour. How long before they meet?"
Joel: Oh, Gypsy, that is everything great literature should be. According to Merritt Stone.
Servo: [offscreen] HE'S NOT MERRITT STONE!

Narrator: Johnny even got to the midway for a ride, but the fun didn't last nearly long enough.
Servo [as Narrator]: Johnny's car rolled and burned.

Joel: Simulated culture like Disney World.

Narrator: "No, Johnny," says Mom, "we're going to the art gallery."
Servo [as Mom]: And you'll like it!
Crow [as Johnny]: No! I don't wanna go!

Narrator: ..."A baseball game, oh boy." But when he gets there he finds a five-year-old can't get close enough to see anything.
Servo [as Narrator]: Besides, the Mariners are playing, so who cares?
Narrator: Unless someone lifts you up and put you on the lap of the undefeated champion of the world, Joe Louis.
Crow [as Narrator]: Joe hits Johnny up for fifteen cents due to tax problems.

[Johnny is watching a performing horse show, as the judges' winning pick and her foal trot around]

Servo [as Narrator]: Visions of the Mekong Delta flash before Johnny's eyes.

[Champion figure skater Barbara Ann Scott gives Johnny a peck on the cheek. Embarrassed, he puts his head on her chest.]
Crow [as Narrator]: "Jiminy," thinks Johnny, "if only I could get a ride in one of those."
Narrator: Johnny does find a real aeroplane… and gets his ride.
Servo [as Narrator]: Johnny thinks Amelia Earhart seems like a nice lady.

John Mapes: [introduced as he's rehearsing to a acting lessons vinyl] Look, Kate, I am a gentleman.
"Kate": That I'll try.
Crow: [disgusted] Oh, great; another oily unlikable character!
John Mapes: I swear I'll cut you if you strike me again!
"Kate": So you may lose your arm. If you strike me, you are no gentleman.
Servo: It's Ms. Hathaway!
"Kate": And if no gentleman, why then no arm?
John Mapes: A herald, Kate! Oh, put me in thy books!
"Kate": Ha-ha, what is your crest? [loops] A coxcomb? A coxcomb?
Servo: [alongside the loop] A Henry Miller.
Joel: [as Mapes shuts off the record] Oh wait a minute; it's a little late for acting lessons. They started filming already.

Crow: D'oh! ...Got riffback on that one.

[Super-spy Martin sees the statuesque Dr. Lin Yung standing in one of a pair of huge birdcage-like duplication cells.]
Joel: Ah! It's Malibu Barbie Torture Chambers!
Servo: Neat!
[Cut to close-up on Dr. Yung.]
Crow [as Dr. Yung]: [in "Chinese" accent] Hi. I am new Asian Barbie.

[In the duplication chamber next to the real Dr. Yung, a skeleton slowly becomes something resembling a life-size blow-up doll.]
Servo: Huh. Well, kinda close, I suppose.
[The camera zooms in on Dr. Yung.]
Crow [as Dr. Yung]: [in "Chinese" accent] Do I really look like that?
Crow: Oh, come on, Doc! Did your kid make that thing?
Joel: I sing the Body Pathetic! Heh.
[Gradually, a very pale form resembling Dr. Yung materializes.]
Servo: Uh… I think you need more toner!
[The form slowly darkens to reveal an identical copy of Yung.]
Crow: Heh heh heh. Heh! Hunan Duplicators!

These two girls, they make quite a pair.
They both come from your worst night-mare.
They will haunt your soul forever,
And now,
When you see pink,
You're gonna think,
"We're doomed".
They are agents of Satan...
Joel: [laughing] Okay, stop it, Tom...

Joel: You know, guys, I got a feeling this is gonna be a tough one.
Crow: Oh, it might not be too bad...
Servo: No, I think Joel's right, this one has "stinkburger" written all over it.
Joel: Yeah...
Crow: [sighs indignantly] C'mon, you can't tell just from the credits!
Joel: No, no, it's a feeling I have. My gut instincts tell me that this is gonna hurt real bad.
Crow: Joel, it's not healthy to have such a negative attitude right out of the gate.
Servo: It's just common sense, Crow. There's a feeling of incompetence already in the air here.
Joel: Yeah, we might as well face up to it...
Crow: Well, I refuse to give in so soon! I'm gonna riff away like it's nobody's business! ...I-I can't think of anything now, but...

[The credits mention that the film's music was performed by a group called The Other Three; part of the credit is cut off by the side of the screen.]

Dr. Logan: I don't know. I was trying to help.
Servo: [whining] I was just trying to help.
Dr. Brent: Help? You've jeopardized this whole project!
Dr. Logan: What the hell do you want from me, Dr. Brent?! I don't have a precision mind like yours!

[Joel, Crow, and Tom applaud]

[Cut to the next act, a lion tamer]

[As trapeze artists fly through the air]

. . .
Crow: This must be a weekly series.

[As the end credits roll...]
Crow: Crew? They had a crew!? I do not believe they had a crew!

[The titles appear.]
Crow: I need to know what not to do on a date! Hahaha!
[A person's name with 'Ph.D.' attached to it appears.]
Servo: What, she has a Ph.D. in dating?
Joel: Oh no, this is like having your mom talk to you about sex!

Nick: Uh, Kay… you wouldn't want to help get the scavenger sale ready at the community center… would you?
Joel [as Kay]: How many ways can I say "no"?!
Kay: Oh, I've been hearing about that. Yes, I'd like to very much.
Crow [as Kay]: Is it okay if I bring my boyfriend Dave?
. . .
Nick: I sure didn't think she'd go to a place like that for a date.

The Magic Voyage of Sinbad

[Sinbad addresses a crowd of people in the city and they yell in agreement with something he says.]
Crow [as someone in the crowd]: Howard Johnson is right!

Joel: It's noon and he's still filibustering!

[Sinbad makes prospective members of his crew drink a strong liquid to test their fortitude.]
Crow: They're test-marketing Crystal Pepsi.

[Sinbad's ships approach an island whose residents wear giant horned helmets and cloaks.]
Crow: They look like the Knights Who Say "Ni!"

Gypsy: It seems as if everybody who's anybody is here tonight.
Crow: That's because they knew you'd be wearing that dress. Wow.

Gypsy: [laughing a little too hard] We were wondering... what would you do if Sinbad came to your town? [laughs again] Wouldn't you want the city council to do something about it? Let's watch.

Gypsy: That wasn't Sinbad.

Servo: WHO ARE YOU!?!?


[Roxy walks up to her little car.]
Crow [as Roxy]: Taxi! ...Oh, I drove.

Tommy: Roxie! It's me, Tom!
Joel [as Roxie]: That's why I'm screaming! AAAAAAAAA!!!

[In the desert, Dr. Miller, Roxy, and Tommy are examining the giant's tracks.]
Dr. Miller: He left the road right here.
Dr. Miller: [ dubbed voiceover ] Watch out for snakes!
Servo: Who said that?!

[Tommy sings and plays an electric guitar by the motel pool.]
Joel: Man, it looks like it hurts to be him.
Servo [as Motel Staff on Loudspeaker]: Uh, will the gentleman by the pool please discontinue the song? And watch out for snakes.

[Over yet another disgusting close-up of Arch Hall Jr.]
Joel: I figured it out, he looks like the bat from FernGully.

[Eegah introduces Roxie to his mummified relatives.]
Roxie: Um... how do you do?
Crow [as corpse]: I'm really, really dead.

[At a pool party, Eegah once again carries off Roxy.]
Joel: Man, she gets picked up so much, she should have a handle!

[Dr. Miller, trying to escape, carefully packs all his things into his plaid bag.]
Joel: Oh, yeah. Don't forget your little satchel.
Crow: That purse will be the death of him!

[Eegah returns to his cave, carrying flowers.]
Crow [as Eegah]: [singing] Red roses for a blue ladyyyy...
Crow and Servo: [in unison] EEGAH SHUCKA! EEGAH! EEGAH!

[Crow imitiates an audience roaring while Servo imitates the theme]

Crow [as The Cryptkeeper]: Welcome to the Crypt! We've dug up something for you! [chuckles] Why not stick around and watch Dream On? It's the breast show on TV! [to Joel] Kill me.

I Accuse My Parents

Joel: Okay, so, is everybody done with their art-therapy project?
Gypsy: Mm-hmm.
Tom Servo: Joel, what's the point of this art-therapy stuff, anyway, huh?
Joel: Well, by having you draw pictures of your idealized family, maybe you can escape some of the deep psychological problems that Jimmy, the star of today's movie, suffered because of his family. So let's see what you've drawn, okay? This is Crow's... .
[Crow's drawing is a giant version of himself with a handlebar mustache, knives for hands, and lasers firing from his chest, walking down a city street crushing buildings]
Servo: Huh.
Crow: That's my dad. He's all-powerful! His hands are made of stainless steel and he has lasers that shoot out of his chest. Pyeww! Pyeww!
Gypsy: Ooh!
Crow : I don't have to tell ya, he's the coolest dad in the whole neighborhood. And when we go to father-son picnics, we win every event. And he dispenses homespun wisdom and teaches solid Midwestern values while crushing all who block his path!
Gypsy: Ahh... .
Joel: Uh huh. And what about the handlebar mustache?
Crow: Uh... .I dunno.
Joel: Okay, let's see here. [writes] "Oral obsession with mustache indicates nasal-labial shame." Good, okay. Now let's see yours here, Tom. What's this?
[Tom's drawing is two women holding hands, with a big robot standing behind them]
Servo: Okeydoke! Uh, that's my mom, my dad and my mom. My mom is Hayley Mills, my dad is Gigantor and my mom is Peggy Cass.
Joel': Uh huh. And why are your moms holding hands, Tom?
Servo': I dunno.
Joel': Okay, let's see... . [writes] "Latent "Parent Trap" syndrome." Man should be in a straitjacket! Okay, Gypsy, this one's really nice, what about this one?
[Gypsy's is of her, Crow, Joel, Tom and Cambot--holding hands, with Richard Basehart looking down on them from a cloud overhead]
Gypsy': Well, Joel, my ideal family is right here! And I know Richard Basehart watches over us all.
Joel': Oh, that's really sweet, Gypsy. But tell me, why does Richard Basehart get to play God?
Gypsy': I dunno.
Crow: Uh, Joel? Why are you spending your time psychoanalyzing robots?
Joel': Um... .I don't know.
[Short but awkward silence]
Joel': I'm kidding, of course.
[Commercial sign]

Joel: We'll be right back. I do know! I really do know.

Servo: [sing-song, about Jimmy's whole decision process in the movie] Jim's crazy-
Crow: And stupid.
Servo: -crazy for accusing his par~ents!

Gypsy: Oh well, We'll have to take it from the top.

The Truck Farmer (short)

[Over the opening logo (The letters EB in a circle), titles, and credits of this Encyclopedia Britannica film...]
Joel: Easter Bunny films presents...
Servo: "Truck Farmer": The special edition. Includes scenes the studio thought too graphic for audiences.
Crow: Wonder if they sold this film door to door?

Narrator: Most of us think that these people were really free...
Joel [as Narrator]: But they were just stupid!

[A tractor is clearing down trees for farming.]
Crow: Aah! It's Killdozer! Clint Walker, no!
Servo: Here, thousands of acres of rainforest are cleared away. Who cares?
Crow [as driver]: Stupid trees! God, I hate them.
Joel: Early tractor pulls, not that much fun. This is the freestyle competition.
Crow: Don't see many of these trees anymore. Well, down it goes.
Servo: The sad thing is this guy doesn't even work for anybody. He's just doing this for kicks!

Joel, Crow, Servo: [singing to the Speed Racer theme]
Go, Speed Farmer!
Go, Speed Farmer!
Go, Speed Farmer, go!

Narrator: Some carrots are frozen.
Crow: Some carrots are humiliated publicly.

Narrator: Here in southern Texas, they have an additional problem...
Crow: Texans.

[Men spray ice into a large shipping container with a huge fire hose]
Narrator: The vegetables are shipped in special, refrigerated containers.
Crow [as Narrator]: Later, this device is used to beat back the workers.

Servo: [singing] His favorite movie is Turner and Hooch!

[The two enter a diner.]

Crow [as Bix]: Shut up, Danny.
Joel [as Danny]: Oh.

[On the SOL bridge, Crow takes "What a Pleasant Journey" (aka "The Train Song") in a different direction.]
Crow T. Robot: [singing]
The 5:15 from Duluth,
Oh my! It just derailed!
The toxic waste is spillin',
The conductor's been impaled.
A benzene cloud has risen
And the whole town's startin' to cough.
Joel, Servo: [to the beat] [cough, cough] … [cough, cough]
Crow: [singing]
Within a matter of day-eeez,
All of our skin will fall off.

The Painted Hills


Body Care and Grooming (short)

[The title Body Care and Grooming appears on the screen.]
Joel: Is this an infomercial? Where's Cher?
Servo [as TV announcer]: Body Care. And Grooming. They're cops.

[The short opens on a shot of several college-age couples looking lovey-dovey all across campus.]
Narrator: Ah, spring!
Crow [as Narrator]: Filthy, shameful spring!
. . .
Joel: You know, people were whiter back then.
Narrator: When a young man's fancy lightly turns to...
Crow: Underpants.
Narrator: ...Love.
Crow: Oh.

[Shot of slovenly girl.]
Narrator: Look at that hair!
Crow: [defensively] I like her hair!
Narrator: And that blouse!
Crow: [lasciviously] I'm looking, I'm looking!
[Shot of young man looking disgusted by slovenly girl's appearance.]
Narrator: Sorry, Miss! We're trying to a film about proper appearance, and, well, you're not exactly the kind to make this guy behave like a human being!
Joel: [bitterly] You know, make him want to grope you and paw at you!
. . .
[The slovenly girl is now immaculately dressed and groomed. The camera starts at her head and slowly pans down.]
Narrator: Look at that hair... that skin... that mouth...
Servo [as Narrator]: Those... n-nose.
. . .
Crow: We simply took your libido and starched and pressed it!
[formerly slovenly girl walks off, quickly followed by young man]
Crow [as young man]: Hey, I couldn't help but notice how much you look like everybody else!

[The camera focuses on a woman with a good appearance. Shortly after, it focuses on a woman looking discomforted and fidgeting around.]
Narrator: Clothes are important. Besides fitting well and looking well, the clothes should be appropriate for the occasion. Wearing inappropriate clothes, like these shoes—
Servo [as the Narrator]: Is immoral.
Narrator: —is a sure way to make yourself uncomfortable... and conspicuous.
Crow: Expressing individualism is just plain wrong.

Narrator: Besides accumulating sweat, the skin is also constantly picking up dirt, dust, grit, and other foreign particles.
Crow: Skin sucks.

Narrator: One of these is cleansing cream.
Servo [as Narrator]: One of these is nitric acid. Choose wisely.

[The short closes with the cleaned-up teens going to bed.]
Narrator: And so... the end of a perfect day.
Joel [as Narrator]: An entire day spent grooming.
. . .
Narrator: And you...
Joel [as Narrator]: Jezebel!
Narrator: following these simple rules of body care and grooming, you too will [have] that quality of appearance, that feeling of well-being, so important to make your dreams of happiness come true.
Crow [as Narrator]: And remember—when you touch yourself, the saints cry. Goodnight.
[As we fade out...]
Crow: You're next!
[A few more names appear]
Servo: [sarcastically] Oh, let's not forget these guys!

Gypsy: Tonight on "The Advocates," our debate will be about the woman from today's short. Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot will argue over whether she's more attractive sloppy, or clean Representing sloppy will be Crow. Representing clean will be Servo. I will be your moderator. The outcome will be decided by Joel Robinson. I now turn the floor over to Crow.
Crow: I like her sloppy. While her well-groomed - in other words, square - classmates were listening to Pat Boone and Patti Page, she was at the local jazz club, groovin' to Miles, Monk, and Coltrane. While her classmates were struggling to make it through an issue of Reader's Digest, she was the only woman on campus who can freely quote Henry Miller. She may be sloppy, but she fits deeply into my idea of paradise. Thank You.
Gypsy: Tom Servo,
Servo: Thank you, Gypsy. I like her clean, 'cause it just shows that she wants to change the system from within. Sure she's a seething cauldron of passion, but she wears clean underpants, and she knows where her shirt is in the morning. Call her what you will - a Scoop Jackson Democrat or a Jacob Javits Republican - either way, she's the stuff that dreams are made of. Thank you,
Gypsy: And now Joel Robinson will render his verdict.
Joel: Well, thank you, Gypsy. Uh, both of these issues are complex, and there are no easy answers, but Crow is right.
Crow: Woo-hoo! I'm right, I'm right!
Servo: Wait a minute, Joel! Now, the whole subject of cleanliness and grooming is very important to me, and I know a much more effective way to resolve this issue.
Joel: Well, how's that?
Servo: A spitting contest! :[Spits on Joel and he and Crow try to spit each other behind Gypsy]
Gypsy: Wait! wait! Hey, knock it off! Hey!

Crow: Now, is this the real Old West, or the Roy Rogers Old West where they had electricity and cars?

Jonathan: Thirty years of mud scrabblin', and when I do find the glory dust, I go off half-cocked!
Crow [as Jonathan]: But enough vernacular...

Taylor: Never mind the dog, Tommy...
Servo [as Taylor]: Here's the Sex Pistols.

[In response to a corral that suddenly appears]
Servo: How did that corral get there?
Crow: They used CorelDraw.

[Over a scenic shot of a mountain]
Crow: Mount Rushmore!...Before it was built.

[After a long montage depicting Tommy, Jonathan, Taylor, and Shep working together on Jonathan's mining site, the scene fades to a shot of Taylor looking out the window of the cabin.]
Joel [as Taylor]: Well, looks like the montage finally blew over.

[Pilot Pete saddles up his horse and heads away from Jonathan's cabin after a brief, uneventful stay.]
Crow: So this guy comes in, stops the plot cold, and leaves.

Crow [as Shep]: SNAUSAGES!


Dr. Forrester: [Stopping his scan of TV's Frank's brain and looking at the camera] Ah, Joel. Your experiment this week is your first western. It's called "Gunslinger" and it stars Beverly Garland in her pre-Dotty period.
TV's Frank: Beverly Garland. [growls, but is cut off by another scan]
Dr. Forrester: And it's directed by Roger Corman, so your brain might explode before Frank's does. [turns back to scan Frank before looking back quickly] Yippie-ki-yay, mama jama.

Servo: [As the criminals stop] Boy, she is slick. How'd she get by us?

[In a barfight, a patron grabs Jake and throws him over the bar.]
Joel: You know, he shoulda slid him across the bar.

[Hired assassin Cain Miro is busy in his room when he hears a knock on the door. He goes up to it and opens it... outward as bar owner Erika enters]
Crow: Wha... Doors don't open like that, there's a number... He's in the hall!
Cain: Crazy coming up in here...
Joel [as Cain]: my hallway here.

Cain: Only the good die young.
Servo: Most of us are morally ambiguous, which explains our random dying patterns.

[Mayor Polk puts his dead wife down, glares around the corner and reaches for where his guns should be.]
Joel [as Polk]: Draw, er... wait a sec!
[Polk goes into the barn and pulls out a pitchfork]
Crow: [As Polk approaches Cain, to the tune of Green Acres] Doo-doo, do-do-do! The chores!
Servo: Doo-doo, do-do-do! [scene switches to Cain aiming his gun] ...the hell?

[A drunken Cain attempts to kiss Erika.]
Cain: [drunkenly] You got brown eyes...
Servo [as Cain]: [drunkenly] An' you got a neck.

Servo: Ee-gah...
Crow: Shtemlo.
Joel: Watch out for snakes!
Servo [as Announcer]: We've hidden Mitchell somewhere in this picture...
Crow [as Announcer]: Mitchell, will you stand up, please?

[Benton stops Mitchell from following Cummings into his home.]
Benton: No salesmen at this entrance.
Servo [as Mitchell]: But I'm not a salesman! I'm the Chubby Blue Line!

[At the park, Mitchell shoots man in the leg.]
Crow: Daryl Gates on his day off.
Crow [as Golf Sportscaster]: He's landed just short of the green.
Servo [as Other Golfers]: Can you hurry it up, we've got a head wound back here!

[In bed with Mitchell, Greta reaches out to return unopened beers to the bed stand, which also has a bottle of Johnson & Johnson's...]

Joel [as Mitchell]: Man, this is hard to do after six sour cream burritos!

[Cortner runs through the woods, clutching the head in his arms.]
Mike [as Sports Announcer]: Riggins is at the 20… He's at the 10… No one will catch him!
Crow: He's either gonna win the Nobel Prize or the Heisman Trophy.

[Cortner falls to the ground, clutching the head and gazing accusingly at the sky]
Crow [with British accent]: Oh, thank you, God! Thank you so bloody much!

[In search of a replacement body for Jan's head, Dr. Bill Cortner examines cardboard cutouts of buxom strippers at a club.]
Mike [as Cortner]: Well, she can't have a cardboard body. I've ruled that out.
Crow [as Cortner]: [pervertedly] Saaay, this could actually be an upgrade...
Servo [as Cortner]: Well, it's nice and all, but I want something sleazy.
[Inside the strip club (which looks suspiciously like a greasy spoon), a dancer slithers to a porny saxophone tune.]
Mike: If Jack Ruby owned a Denny's.
. . .
Servo [as Maître d']: Welcome to the Diane Arbus Cafe.
. . .
Mike [as Stripper]: This dance represents that there are no baked potatoes until after five.

[Jan is talking after Cortner has saved her head.]
Crow: Doesn't she need lungs?
Servo: No, she's got neck juice!

[Assistant Kurt is whining about his withered and deformed arm to bodiless Jan.]
Crow [as Jan]: Look. You know they say there's always someone worse off? I'm that person!

[Jan communicates with the monster in the closet.]
Jan: Do you understand me? Knock once if you can understand me.
Servo: Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me!

[Cortner cruises through town, eyeing shapely pedestrians, as the soundtrack continues the porny sax music.]
Servo [as Radio DJ]: [sultrily] It's a sleazy morning out there. You're listening to K-PORN, Holmes and Reems in the morning… sleazy, slutty music all morning long. Here's one from Skinny and the Sweat Beads.

[Cortner attends a "Body Beautiful" beauty "auction".]
Mike [as Announcer]: Contestant number 3 slipped and her head fell off!
Servo [as Cortner]: I'LL TAKE HER, I'LL TAKE HER!!

[Cortner emerges from his vehicle, to yet another reprise of the saxophone music.]
Mike [as Radio DJ]: Stay tuned for the Obscene Phone Call of the Day on... K-PORN!
Servo: [echoing, hushed] K-PORN!

[The monster has broken the closet door off of its hinges and is reaching through the peephole, trying to strangle Cortner.]
Joel [as Cortner]: Look... you know your business, but... if you just put the door down, you can kill me!
[The monster shoves Cortner to the ground and starts shaking the door off of its arm.]
Servo [as Cortner]: There, see? Now you can kill me! You can use the door!
. . .
[The monster bites out a chunk of Cortner's neck and quickly spits it out.]
Servo [as Monster]: That's one nasty McNugget! Ew!

Teen-Age Strangler


Is This Love? (short)

[Reading the title card]
Servo: Is this love, or is it just rough sex with Michael Douglas?

[Inside the college dorm room]
Servo: So... Where's Waldo?
Mike: He's under the bed.
[We see Liz, an oddly mature woman, brushing her hair before bed.]
Crow: Geez! How many times was she held back?
Servo: Heh heh heh.
Liz: Hi, Peg!
[In the mirror, we see college girl Peg toss her books on her bed.]
Mike [as Peg]: Hi, Mom.

Peg: I think I'll send a telegram instead.
Liz: Don't be silly, Peg! You always talk as if your mother were an… ogre, or something.
Mike [as Liz]: Well, I've known her for fifty years…

Liz: Honestly, Peg — I don't know how many times, ever since we were in high school together, I've heard you go on the same way about some man or other.
Peg: Oh, but this is different, Liz! Really it is!
Mike [as Peg]: He's anatomically correct, and everything!
Peg: It's the real thing.
Liz: I remember when I first felt that way about Andy.
Servo [as Liz]: the turn of the century.

[The short is ending.]
Narrator: How would you answer this question for Liz and Andrew? Peggy and Joey?
Servo: Bob and Carol? Ted and Alice?
Narrator: How can you tell? Is this love?
Crow: You have ten minutes to answer the question starting now.
[Servo imitates a clock ticking.]
Mike: And, now stay tuned for the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill hearing.
Crow: No animals were hurt during the filming of this movie.
[A list of related film titles scrolls on the screen.]
Servo: "How Much Affection?"
Crow: "When Should I Marry?"
[Mike and the Bots continue with fake titles.]
Mike: "Know Your Ointments"
Servo: "What's That Down There?"
Crow: "When He Wants It Rough"
Mike: "Procreation, Not Recreation"
Servo: "Oh No, Pleasure!"
Crow: "McClintock!"

Teen-Age Strangler (movie)

[As a girl is strangled]
Crow: Splendor in the Grass 2: Dream Warrior!

The Wild Wild World of Batwoman


Cheating (short)

[Reading the opening cards]
Servo: Cheating: How to make it work for you at home and on the job.
Crow: A Centron production, although we got the idea from a different company, because we're cheating!

[The short opens over a large clock.]
Servo [as radio announcer]: The Jack Benny Program!
[The clock strikes ominously.]
Mike: [deeply] Ebenezer Scrooge...

[A phone rings.]
Crow: For depressing phone sex, dial 1-900-ALFALFA.
[John picks the phone up, but a ringing sound can still be heard.]
Servo: Oh, the foley guy must be calling!

Johnny: Why don't they call?
Crow: Because they don't like you.

Crow: Mother Teresa called. She hates you.

Mary: The problem to is factor x² - 9x + 20. Now how do you do it?
Crow [as John]: Aw, let's just cheat!
John: x² - 9x + 20. You take the x² - 9x... [Mary shakes her head]
Servo [as Mary]: Nobody home, huh?
John: Oh, you subtract the x from x², and then you...
Mike [as Mary]: John, this is geography!

Narrator: And right there in front of you sat your pal Mary, with her head chock full of all the answers you needed.
Crow: Split it open now!
Narrator: You thought about it. There you were, desperate, and there was your salvation within arm's reach.
Servo: On a doily.
Narrator: So you decided to take a chance.
[Johnny taps Mary on the shoulder.]
Servo [as Johnny]: [loudly] Pssst! Hey, Mary! What's the answer?

[Miss Grandy is passing back algebra tests, and Mary's signature on hers is seen in an extreme close-up.]
Mike [as Narrator]: Your one mistake, you signed your test Mary Matthews.
[Miss Grady hands Johnny a sheet of paper - presumably his test.]
Servo [as Miss Grandy]: This contract arrived for you from a Mr. Elzebub.

Narrator: Was there a shadow of doubt in Miss Grandy's face as she looked at you?
Crow: Or was it lust?

Narrator: Somehow, that odd little look Miss Grandy gave you seemed to haunt you.
[As Johnny lies awake in bed, an massive image of Miss Grandy's face appears beside him as he remembers her expression.]
Servo [as Johnny]: Oh, hi Miss Grandy— EAAAAAAGH! AAAAAAAH! GET AWAY!

Narrator: And most of all, your new job as student council representative.
[As the narrator says this, we see Johnny standing in front of the council, silently talking about something.]
Crow [as Johnny]: I envision a cheating wing!

[Miss Grandy notices Mary giving an answer to Johnny]
Servo [as Miss Grandy]: I smell a big Commie rat.
Miss Grandy: John, bring it up here, please.
[Mike imitates a buzzer repeatedly going off, Servo imitates a fire alarm going off]
[Johnny slowly makes his way to the front of the classroom.]
Servo: Fortunately, your mob ties will get you off, Johnny!
. . .
Crow: And so Dana Plato's career begins.

Jim is tacking something to the wall as Johnny approaches.
Johnny: Hey, Jim. What's that?
Jim: Meetin' of the student council.
Mike [as Jim]: They're hangin' you in effigy.

[Student council members raise their hands to vote to expel cheater Johnny from their ranks]
Mike, Crow, Servo: Give us Barabbas! Barabbas!

Narrator: But did John truly intend to be dishonest?
Servo: Or was he just pure evil?

[A question mark appears on-screen.]
Crow [as the Riddler]: Riddle me this, Batman! [cackles]

[Over the "The End" card]
Mike: The end... for Johnny at least, you poor dope!

Mike: You know, guys, as enthralling as this Batwoman movie is, I just can't get this cheating short out of my mind.
Servo: Mmm, ditto friend. It posts so many dilemmas like did Johnny intend to be dishonest, should Mary take the blame?
Mike: Or was Mary just a pawn in Johnny's little game?
Gypsy: Which begs the question of free will. What about free will?
Servo: Should his classmates give him a second chance and why doesn't the accused get a chance to defend himself?
Mike: Good point! And should Miss Grandy come into Johnny's bedroom uninvited and bodiless? What do you think about that, Crow?
Crow: Uh, the Beatles!
Servo: You haven't been paying any attention at all, have you, Crow?

Gypsy: Tom! C'mon, Tom. Sure Crow's made a mistake, but we should have compassion. Remember, my gumball-headed young friend, The quality of mercy is not strained; It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath.
Tom: Gypsy, he stole from YOUR essay.
Mike: Gypsy, calm down. This isn't getting us anywhere.


The Wild Wild World of Batwoman (movie)

[The film opens with a movie logo for Medallion TV.]
Mike: Hey, I have my 40-year TV medallion.
Servo: [singing] What do you do when you're branded?
Crow: [singing] You watch TV.

[The first scene after the credits is a night shot of a narrow city street lined with apartment buildings.]
Servo: I'm as mad as hell!...

[The camera pans down to rest on the rears of three dancing women in tight pants.]
Mike: Holy cow! That's 40 pounds of butt in 30-pound-butt-capacity pants!

Crow: They just put a bunch of movies in a blender and pressed the 'Mix' button!

[Camera pans up to an imprisioned brunette with a typical 1960's flip hairdo]
Mike: Oh, Donald.

[As the professor dances, Batwoman secretly frees a prisoned girl.]
Crow: Well, we've discovered Batwoman's secret power: She can open unlocked doors!
Servo: So this is "The Wild Wild World of Batwoman", eh?
[A puff of smoke goes off in the lab as someone wakes up.]
Mike: Whahappa?
Servo [as TV announcer]: Yes, it's the best hits of the 50s and 60s on 8-track and cassettes!
[The background music continues to go on as two people continue to dance.]
Mike, Crow, Servo: [in a dull voice] Tequila.
Crow: Those two were once cute, tiny, lovable babies.

[A man sits at his desk and talks to his secretary.]
Man: Miss Benson, I'm going to the commissary for a quick bite of lunch, ring through to me if that Simpson call comes in.
Mike: Simpson, eh?

[The plot inexplicably switches to something about underground monsters, using footage from The Mole People.]
Crow: [confused] Wha— that's The Mole People! These movies have crashed!
Mike: You got your Mole People in my Batwoman!
Servo: You got your Batwoman in my Mole People!

Crow: You know a movie is bad bad bad if it makes the Monkees look good!

[The cast chases each other round and round a table while ludicrous hootenanny music plays.]
Mike: Maybe they'll all turn into butter.

Crow: So, Mike. This is Hell.
Mike: Yep.
Crow: Mike, I demand that you kill me.
Servo: Me too.
Mike: No. [a beat] Will you kill me?

[A rail-thin beatnik waiter attends to a table at a restaurant. The waiter has a very distinct hairstyle and moustache.]
Crow: Hey! Hitler! We want to order over here!

[The villain has just been unmasked, but due to the badness of the film, the audience already knows the villain's identity]
Servo: Please do not reveal the secret to The Wild, Wild World of Batwoman.

[The plot has been resolved and nothing important is happening, but the end credits are nowhere in sight.]
Servo: [screaming] ENDDDD! EEEEENNNNDDDDDD!!!
[And now, at last, the film ends.]
Mike: [defeated and unimpressed] What a wild wild world!
Crow: Please stay away from sharp instruments for three weeks after viewing this film and do not operate heavy equipment, thank you!

Alien from L.A.

[Crow wears a sergeant's hat while a blindfolded Mike disassembles Tom Servo.]

Mike: [weakly] Sir, yes sir.
Crow: I didn't hear you, ladybritches!
Mike: I said sir, yes sir!
Servo: [in pieces on the table] Can we just get on with this, Crow? I wanna watch Sisters!
Crow: You're not goin' nowhere, you wussy red cupcake! You gonna run home to your mama, huh?
Servo: [sarcastically] Ooh, ooh, I'm scared...
Mike: Hey Crow, c'mon...
Crow: I'm the drill sergeant here, you toe-headed, contact lens-wearin' piece of toast! Now gimme the oath!
Mike: Uh, This is my robot, there are many like it but this one is mine.
Crow: And what is the name of your robot, boy?
Servo: Servo! Tom Servo!
Crow: I don't believe I was addressing you, Mayonnaise! Why don't you just make yourself comfortable down there on the floor and give me twenty, Corporal?
Servo: Uh, 'cause I can't?
Crow: Well, now, you just bought yourself two hundred and twenty! Now c'mon, dickweed!
Mike: Uh, we'll be right back.
Crow: I heard that, Pyle! You piece of filth!
Servo: Well, several pieces, actually...

[Robbie tells Wanda (played by squeaky-voiced Kathy Ireland) he doesn't want to see her anymore.]
Wanda: I thought you really liked me. You said I was special, so naturally I wanna know why!
Servo [as Robbie]: It's your helium addiction.
. . .
Wanda: Why'd you even go out with me in the first place if I'm such a geek?!
Mike [as Robbie]: 'Cause I'm turned on by squeeze toys.

[a plain sign with a very crude drawing of a hamburger and the word "BURGERS" is seen in the background]
Mike: That sign is really seducing me into buying a burger!

[A scene of a Mediterranean style city is shown, with a domed building in the background]
Crow: Hey it's the Blue Mosque!
Servo: No, the Blue Mosque isn't on a hill.
Crow: Have you been to Istanbul?

[After a restless sleep, Wanda awakes with a start, her glasses askew over her nose.]
Mike [as Wanda]: Ah! Swimsuit issue!
Crow [as Wanda]: This whole room smells like my eyes!

[Wanda hears some rocks falling in the cavern]
Wanda: Dad?
Mike: Look, your dad's not responsible for everything that happens in the world!

Crow [as Kathy Ireland]: This door sounds brown!

[As a man in a little car rides wildly past in the foreground...]
Crow: Whoa-oa-oa! Don't ride the Wild Mouse, it's not saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafe!!!

[Wanda begins to explain about what happened to her father, but Charmin suddenly stops her.]
Charmin: Wait a that really your voice?
Servo: [irritated] Oh, jeez, I'd slap this movie if I could!

Beginning of the End

[All three are sitting in the front seat; Audrey is driving, Ed in the center:]
Mike [as Audrey]: Wait, this isn't a stick shift... AAGGGHHH!!

[The National Guard retreat from the attacking grasshoppers.]
Crow [as soldier]: One weekend a month my ass!

[The military downs one giant grasshopper, but the others close in.]
Crow [as Grasshopper]: They got Jiminy! Get em!
. . .
Mike [as general]: We have got to get organized! We should not be losing to grasshoppers, people!

[The heroes are observing a captured grasshopper when the general walks in.]
Crow [as general]: I just came to see what you did with the grant money...Oh my God!
. . .
[As the grasshopper breaks free, Peter Graves's character picks up a gun and begins firing wildly at it.]
Crow: Pete! Pete! Short, controlled bursts!

[Shot of the Chicago skyline as a droning sound plays continuously.]
Servo: When Brian Eno ruled Chicago.

[Over yet another shot of the lush rolling countryside with mountains in the distance]
Mike: Guys, this is so not Illinois.

The Atomic Brain


What About Juvenile Delinquency? (short)

[After the film fades out on a man being grabbed and carried off by a gang, it fades back in on a photograph of the same man.]
Servo: [gasps] They flattened him!

[The "gang" enters a diner one by one.]
Mike, Servo and Crow [as everyone in the diner]: Norm! Norm! Norm! Norm! Norm!

Angry City Councilman: We're just wasting time here and we've wasted too much time already!
Servo [as Councilman]: Kill 'em all!

Servo: It's Prince's new name, isn't it?
Crow: No, it's Frank Gorshin's new name!

The Atomic Brain (movie)

[As the girl in the opening scene is being lowered inside a machine, Mike and the Bots realize something about her.]'

Crow: She's nude!
Servo: Lady...

[Otto Frank steps out of the device after showing Mrs. March that the girl's body has been reanimated]
Crow: She's SORT-OF ALIVE!

Servo: [giggling] And she floats gently to her death!

[Wicked dowager Hetty March lifts herself out of the wheelchair.]
Crow [as Hetty/Dr. Strangelove]: Mein Fuehrer! I can walk!

Servo: So, Mike, where's the atomic brain?
Mike: I don't know...


Gypsy: This is not a gymnasium!
Crow: Aw, come on, Gyps, it’s fun when it’s fun!
Gypsy: Yeah, it’s fun until somebody dies!

[Over the title screen]:
Crow: [excited] With Jane Russell? Oh please oh please oh please oh please...
Mike: No, don't get your hopes up.

[Ten seconds into the opening credits...]
Crow: I hate this movie already.

[Cabot's ring begins to flash.]
Crow: It's Commissioner Gordon calling!

Watney: You know how to party, don't'cha, Cabot?
Mike [as Watney]: You just put your lips together and drink!

[Cabot's car begins shaking wildly as it enters the unseen portal to Gor. Watney hangs on to the dashboard in fear.]
Mike: Any chance Barney Rubble there could go through the windshield?
[The scene suddenly cuts to the deserts of Koruba, without any sort of transition explaining how Cabot and Watney got there.]
Crow: Sorry, folks, we simply could not afford to have special effects!

Watney: Where the hell am I?
Mike: You're the hell here.

Watney: Listen, Cabot, what the hell are you talking about? Where are we? What's going on here, Cabot?
Crow [as Cabot]: Ssh! I'm acting!
Cabot: I must go to Koruba!
Watney: What?
Cabot: Koruba.
[Cabot walks away, and starts ignoring Watney]
Watney: The same to you! Cabot, listen. Listen to me! Cabot, what's going on here? What happened last night? Did I do something wrong? Damnit, Cabot.
Mike, Crow & Servo: [chanting] Kill him... kill him... kill him... kill him...
Watney: Cabot, will you listen to me? I wanna go home right now, Cabot. Where are you going? No, no, wait there, Cabot! Tell me what the hell's going on, here. Is this one of your crazy science experiments, huh?

Mike [as Cabot]: Uh, starting tomorrow.

[A beaten and bloodied Cabot is brought before Queen Lara.]
Queen Lara: [accusing Xenos] What have you done to the prisoner?
Servo [as Jack Palance]: Uh, we canceled it. It was too obscure.

[Jack Palance's character Xenos is engaged in a lengthy plot recap with the evil Queen Lara]
Queen Lara: What are you talking about?
Mike [as Jack Palance]: [resignedly] I really don't know.

Queen Lara: [in phenomenally bad ADR] Get out of here! You disgusting worm!

Mike [as Jack Palance]: Now... if... you'll... ex...cuse me, I'm going to go... tear my... agent a new...

[Cabot explains his love for Talena to a slave girl]
Cabot: She feels for me and I feel for her, and we're free to express it.
Crow [as Cabot]: Nekkid.

[Mike and the Bots read excerpts from Jack Palance's fictional autobiography about the making of "Outlaw"]
Crow: Let's see, uh... [doing a Jack Palance impression] "Day One: missed call. Partied all night with that platinum midget fellow and Urbano. Still having trouble seeing straight."
Mike: Okay... [takes book and does own Jack Palance impression] "Day Three: missed call. Wandered into shot yesterday and they decided to keep it." [referring to his character's recurring phrase] "What the heck does 'Avante, avante' mean?"
Servo: [takes book, does Palance] "Day Five: missed call. After four days of shooting, finally got script today and guess what? I'm not playing Thomas Aquinas. I'm supposed to be some kind of freakin' wizard."
Crow: [book; Palance] "Day Eight: missed call. Just can't get cancelled series 'Brunk' off my mind. Why? Whyyyy? Can't keep anything down. Not sleeping."
Mike: "Day Nine: missed call. Went to the village with Gina. My voice scares little Italian kids. Spent entire per diem on bunch of crap."
Servo: "Day Ten: missed call. I think I—" [startled, reverts back to normal voice] "I think I killed a man today. More later?"
[all shudder]

[During the end credits]
Servo: Ah, well.
Crow: Have you seen the outtakes for this film?
Mike: No, did they show 'em on Bloopers and Practical Jokes?
Servo: No, uh, Faces of Death, actually. [They all laugh.] Sounds like Miami Vice. Say, was this movie ever released in the theaters, you think?
Mike: No, I don't think so, but it's a good bet it was on the USA network.
Servo: Oh! The USA— [imitates the fanfare the network used in the early '90s] I really like those original movies they made especially for the USA network. [imitates the fanfare again]
Mike: Yeah, I know, they're great, and they all seem to have titles like, uh, Malibu Death Breast. [They laugh]
Crow: Yeah, that or— [As a TV announcer] "Jeff Conaway and Shari Belafonte-Harper play a deadly game of cat and mouse in Murder Most Moist."
Servo: Oh, hey! Hey, hey, let me play, I've got one. [As a TV announcer] "Judy Landers is on the trail of a devious killer in Peekaboo Lace, P.I."
Crow: That's pretty good. Oh, wait, how bout [Announcer] "Jeff Conaway is a vigilante who stalks by night in Dark Underpants"?
Mike: How about this one? [Announcer] "Lindsay Wagner is a sexy speech therapist held hostage in Tongue Lashing!"
Crow: I like it!
Servo: Hold it, hold it, hold it! I got it, I got it. How about "Jeff Conaway is up to his mouth in murder in French Pistol. CATCH IT!" [as they laugh] This is fun! Yeah.
Mike: Okay, here. Try and top this one. "Jeff Conaway is a college professor whose secret life catches up with him in Death Spank!"
Servo: Ooh, good one, "Death Spank"!
Crow: I've got a good one. How about "Chris Lemmon and Heather Locklear form a crime fighting unit in The Lingerie Justice Files"?
Servo: Ah, that's great. Wait, wait, I've got another. "Jeff Conaway and Morgan Fairchild are The Crotchless Killers."
Crow: I like it, I like it! It's got verve, it's got— Oh, how about "Hard Buckner weaves a web of suspicion between Richard Chamberlain and Ben Vereen in Tap Pant Desire"?
Servo: Nice use of Ben Vereen.
Mike: I like the way you think. Try this one on. "William Devane tracks a killer on a tropical paradise in The Hawaii Edible Underwear Murders!"
Servo: Mike, I love you for that one! Okay, get this. "Lisa Hartman is a streetwise cop who tracks a killer in Cheek Beats."
Crow: You know, Servo, I'd marry you for that, but— Oh, I have one. This one's great. "Jeff Conaway is a crazed cult leader in The Waco Panty Raid."
Mike: Um, uh, "Eric Roberts is a freaked out artist who gets more than he bargained for in Naked Came The Nude!"
Servo: "Peter Deluise and Tommy Tune are Cod Police."
Mike: [as they exit the theater] That was good.

Radar Secret Service



Last Clear Chance (short)

[Title of short appears]
Servo: Your last clear chance... for fantastic savings!

[The short starts with cars driving into a cemetery]
Crow: Jack Kevorkian throws a tailgating party!
Servo: Save some for me!
[A pink car can be seen]
Servo: Oh, look, the Pepto-Bismol car.
Mike: Never let this happen to you. Don't make the mistake these people made. Don't die.

Patrolman: I suppose I should have gone in for a few minutes...
[The picture suddenly loses focus and moves up and down for a second]
Patrolman: ...but I just couldn't do it.
Crow [as Patrolman]: Because of the tear in the sprocket holes.

Patrolman: I could say goodbye from here.
Servo [as Patrolman]: GOODBYE!

Patrolman: Frank's girl Betty Hutkins was waiting for him, of course. Everyone knew they'd be getting married before too long.
Crow [as Betty]: When will we be getting married?
Servo [as Frank Jr.]: Before too long.

Patrolman: Whenever there's a hazard on the road, there's usually a sign to tell you about it. Like a curve warning or a "Right Of Way" sign, "Narrow Bridge", "Signals Ahead", "Do Not Enter", "No Passing", and many others.
Crow: "All Nude Girls".
Servo: "Whites Only".

[A car approaches a railroad crossing sign at night, adorned with the typical "RR" symbol.]
Servo: [growling] Rrrrr.
. . .
Patrolman: If you haven't seen the signs...
Mike: Boy, you haven't lived.
Patrolman: ...this train might come as a surprise to you.
Servo: The Sooooooooooooul Train!
Crow [as Don Cornelius]: Thank you very much, Clarissa...

Patrolman: They figure rules are for the other follow, not for good drivers like themselves.
Servo [as Patrolman]: They're communists.

[As woman walks away from car]
Crow: Forty percent of car accidents are caused by... women's hinders!

Crow [as Patrolman]: I'd tuck you in, but you're dead.

Patrolman: Every day, these are your signs of life, whose purpose is to keep you alive.
Crow: Even though you don't deserve it.

[Close-up of woman driving, having difficulty with a map]
Patrolman: Here's another problem on the roads that we officers face all too often...
Mike: Women drivers! [everyone chuckles condecsendingly]

Patrolman: ...the entering car that fails to yield the right of way.
[An ominous black car skids into the street, nearly hitting a car that's forced to move into another lane]
Crow: The paid assassin cruising through town.

Patrolman: And yet, many people who have lived through a crossing accident will say--
Servo: AAAAAH!
[Mike and Crow look at Servo strangely.]
Servo: That's what they say.

[Frank Jr. arrives at the farm and sees Patrolman Hal]
Frank Jr.: [Jokingly] I give up, officer! What's the charge?
Crow [as patrolman]: Ha, ha! MANSLAUGHTER.

Crow: I have a feeling one of these characters is about to see their own intestines.

[after a long lecture on how small mistakes can lead to catastrophes, the accident approaches with Frank Jr. turning around completely in his car seat to wave at his brother behind him, and keeping this up for nearly a minute without paying any attention to the road ahead]
Servo [as Frank Jr.]: Hey, the cop never said anything about doing intensely stupid things!

Engineer: Why don't they look, Ralph? Tell me, why don't they look?
Servo [as Ralph]: You're deep, Ernie.

Patrolman: So, if the next car I stop happens to be yours...
Mike [as patrolman]: Save a place for me at your dinner table!
Patrolman: ...DON'T tell me that you were speeding a little, only BREAKING the law a little...
Servo: ...uh-oh...
Patrolman: ...only doing something a little bit wrong, save THAT for somebody else, brother!
Patrolman: Because I've seen too many "litte bit" follies...
Servo: He's a bad cop on the loose!
Patrolman: ...and they end up a little bit DEAD!
Mike [as Patrolman]: Now I'm gonna grab me a little bit of lunch.

Servo: Hi. I'm Trooper Tom Servo. Well, I've seen it all, stared into the gapin' maw of death, and I'm here to remind you of the horror that lurks everywhere. No, don't get up. You young people can take things for granted, such as your sandwiches. Oh, I know, you're just going to eat that sandwich a little bit, with a little bit of mayo, and a little bit of hard salami.
Mike: [stabs himself in the eye with the corner of his sandwich] AAAHHHHH!!!
Crow: Why don't they look?
Servo: Listen, brother! Nearly forty... uh, forty percent of all accidents, represent, uh, nearly half of all accidents. But who cares? Have fun with your lint trap! Nothing will happen to you. It will happen to the other guy!
Mike: [sticks lint into his eye] AAHHHHH!!!!
Crow: Why don't they-- [Mike sticks lint in his other eye and screams again] Why don't they look?
Servo: Well say, hot plates are sure fun! Well, they're boss! They're cool! Until...
Mike: [shoves the hot plate against the side of his face] AHHHHH!!!
Crow: Why don't they--
Servo: Well why do I even bother with the brainless gibbons who live in this stinking hole of a town?! Well, I wash my hands of it, brother! Pah! [wanders off, muttering]
Mike: Wow... little guy really gets into his roll, doesn't he?

Crow: [as the light on the desk starts flashing] Oh, ah hey, wonder what the Mads want?
Servo: Oh, mad scientists! Ah, you can have a lot of fun with mad scientists, until someone loses an eye!
Crow: [collapses after trying to hit the button with his face several times and knocking himself out]

Crow: Ah, the classic battle between evil and the narrator.
Narrator: That's right, Lupita, put it back.

Mike: [bewildered] Oh, don't ever do that again.

[Santa's observatory is filled with magical equipment enabling him to spy on all the children of Earth.]

Santa Claus: Oh, everything in sight! They eat most of the animals, the birds, the plants, the roots, the fish, even smoke and alcohol!

Servo: He blew his hand off!
Crow [as Magnus Pyke]: I blinded me with science!

[Over a seemingly endless sequence of the giant bikini-clad teens dancing in slow-motion]
Crow: You know, I'm starting to suspect this might be padding.
Servo: Oh, no, no...
Mike: No, that's real.

[Genius (played by a young Ron Howard) proudly shows off the mixture he's working on, then returns to the basement to perfect it.]

[Genius mixes various chemicals, trying to create more "goo".]
Mike: Look at him, the little kid, plotting against us with Willow.
Crow: [indignantly] I liked Willow!
Mike: Kevin Pollak? You liked that?

[A tarantula that's been exposed to the "goo" grows to a humongous size; it growls as it corners the film's stars.]

Servo: That's why he made Willow.
Crow: Hey, I liked Willow!

[The teens try to lasso the legs of the giant teens' leader, in a very poor special effect involving large mannequin legs.]

Mike: Aw, I hate it when people tell me about their dreams.

[As the Mystery Man first appears, presenting an invitation to Motorama...]
Servo: And Tommy Tune arrives!

[Nuveena is suddenly seen in the showroom floor wearing an apron over her dress.]
Mystery Man: Better get her into the kitchen quick!
Mike [as Mystery Man]: Tater tots are burning!
Crow [as a teenage boy]: Any more girls in there?
[Mike and Crow laughs like Beavis and Butthead]

[As the Kitchen of Tomorrow begins working on a cake...]
Crow: Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.

[In her dream, Nuveena emerges from behind a pillar, prancing in a sporty blouse and short skirt, waving a tennis racket.]
Crow: Aaah! It's a salute to Mr. B Natural!
Servo: Oh, no, no, no!
[She dances back to the pillar, then emerges in tartan trousers, energetically twirling a golf club.]
Mike: This would be the "up" part of her manic mood swings, I'm guessing.
Crow: Oh-ho-ho...
Servo: Man, it is gonna take her forever to write this dream down.
[She goes behind the pillar again and emerges this time in a pink bathing suit and straw sun hat.]
Servo: [Shocked] Ah! Wow!
. . .
Mike: I wonder what Freud would make of that sun hat!
Crow: Well, sometimes a sun hat is just a sun hat.

[Nuveena removes the cake from a futuristic oven.]
Nuveena: My cake is ready.

. . .

Mike [as Mystery Man]: That's a six week delivery, ma'am.

[Nuveena and the Mystery Man drive away on the Highway of Tomorrow. The Mystery Man points out something.]
Mike [as Mystery Man]: Look, dead raccoon of tomorrow.
[The music becomes very etherial and dreamlike.]
Nuveena: [singing] Tomorrow...
Servo: [singing, a la Elmer Fudd] With my sword and magic helmet...
. . .
Mike [as Mystery Man]: That's where President Barbi Benton lives with Prime Minister Jim J. Bullock.
. . .
Crow: Automatic freeway. You build it.
. . .
Mike: Someone invent rock and roll, please!
. . .
Servo: Future may not be available as seen. Personal fates may vary. Future not available in Africa, India, or Central South America.
. . .
Crow: Ah, there's probably some giant kid standing off, holding a control.

[As the short ends, Nuveena and the Mystery Man ride off together. The road they're on appears to be a dead end.]
Mike: Look out! The bridge to the future's out!
[They all gasp and make crash sounds as the end card appears.]

Invasion USA


A Date with Your Family (short)

Servo: The Woody Allen story!
Mike: Hey, I like my family, as a friend!

[Reading a list of names in the credits]
Crow: All of who are orphans.

[Brother looks inside a pot]
Narrator: What's the matter?
Servo [as Brother]: THERE'S A RABBIT IN THERE!

Crow [as Announcer]: We've secretly switched their Folgers coffee...

Narrator: The women of this family seem to feel that they owe it to the men of the family to look relaxed, rested, and attractive at dinnertime.
Mike [as Narrator]: So they're unsuspecting when they kill them.

Mike [as Daughter]: Hi, Mom, I'm pregnant.

[Brother, sporting a slicked-back hair style, cleans his room.]
Narrator: Brother notices the time, and realizes that he must put things in order, and clean himself up in time for dinner.
Mike [as Narrator]: He's got to strip and replace the oil in his hair with summer-weight.

Narrator: Now, Mother and Daughter put the finishing touches on the dinner.
Servo [as Narrator]: With strychnine!
Crow [as Daughter]: Salad needs more butter, Mother!

Narrator: ...he will relax at dinner with those he loves.
Crow: But not these people.

Crow [as Narrator]: What you are watching should have been edited in the final version. My apologies.

Narrator: They speak with their dad as though they are genuinely glad to see him.
Crow [as Narrator]: They're not, of course...

[as the boys talk with their dad]
Mike [as Junior]: Father, I had a feeling today.
Servo [as Father]: Well don't, son.

Mike [as Mother]: Hi, I'm Betty, and I'l be your wife tonight.

Gypsy: Mike, this sucks! Can we just eat?

[Daughter is still arranging the flowers while the family sits down.]
Narrator: Brother seats Junior...
Crow [as Narrator]: Daughter obsesses with the flowers.
Narrator: ...then helps Mother to her chair, as he would his best girl.
Mike [as Narrator]: The less said about this, the better.
. . .
Crow [as Narrator]: Junior seats Dad, and Sister seats the dog, and the dog...

Servo [as Daughter]: Dad, I'm dating a Negro!

Narrator: Many families throughout the country observe the custom of saying Grace at mealtime.
Crow [as Father]: Please, God, take me now...

[As Father begins passing food.]
Servo: [in a British accent] Field Marshall Montgomery sits down to eat. Yes, it's smashing, it's a good day...
[Father passes a food-laden plate to Daughter.]
Narrator: They converse pleasantly while Dad serves.
Mike [as Daughter]: No, I— I'll just have Saltines.
Narrator: I said "pleasantly", for that is the keynote at dinnertime. It is not only good manners, but good sense.
Crow [as Narrator]: Emotions are for ethnic people.
Narrator: Pleasant, unemotional conversation helps digestion.
Servo [as Narrator]: I can't stress "unemotional" enough.

Narrator: Father serves Mother first, then Daughter.
Mike [as Narrator]: Let's go to the flowchart for this.
. . .
Crow [as Narrator]: And be sure to make a plate for the narrator.

Servo [as Narrator]: A violent argument erupts over whose day was more pleasant.

Servo [as Narrator]: Remember, always cut the meat of the person to your left.

Narrator: No one starts eating until Father has served himself.
Mike [as Narrator]: THIS MEANS YOU!
Narrator: Always wait for the hostess...
Servo [as Narrator]: to seat you.
Narrator: this case Mother, to begin eating before you start.
Mike [as Narrator]: Father feigns eating, draws Junior out, then disowns him!

Crow [as Father]: I'm moving to Fire Island, dear.

Narrator: Be sure to tell Mother how good the food is.
Mike [as Narrator]: ...even as you gag on it.
[Brother gives the "okay" sign.]
Servo [as Brother]: It stinks!

Narrator: Don't monopolize the conversation and go on and on without stopping. Nothing destroys the charm of a meal more quickly.
Mike [as Narrator]: …than having a personality.

Narrator: Don't make unkind comparisons about your stand[ard of] living. The dinner table is no place for discontent. It makes Dad and Mother uncomfortable and unhappy.
Crow [as Narrator]: …and they already dislike you enough.

[Father has an extremely irritated look on his face.]
Mike [as Father]: Well. That settles it. Spankings all around, then.

Narrator: Do you begin to see now how a date with your family can be a truly special occasion?
Mike [as Narrator]: Do you? DO YOU?
Narrator: And why Brother and Sister looked forward to the evening?
Mike [as Narrator]: WELL, DO YOU? BETTER SAY "YES", DAMMIT!
Narrator: When the dinner hour at home is treated with a certain amount of graciousness and ceremony, it can be memorable. There is no family so poor but that the evening meal can be eaten in an atmosphere of warmth and gentleness.
Servo [as Narrator]: ...and control and repression.

[As the short ends]
Crow: You know, this makes me want to heat up a Libbyland frozen dinner and eat in front of the TV!
Servo [as Announcer]: Now enjoy some refreshments in the lobby!
Mike: [waves goodbye] Bye-bye, everyone.
Crow: A Simmel-Mervay release.

Narrator: And impulse buying is primarily...
Mike: Women's fault.
[The stack suddenly drops]
Narrator: emotional decision.
Crow: The market crashed!

[Showing an artist designing a ice cream package]
Narrator: Manufacturers spend millions on package design.
Servo [as Narrator]: Yet, this is the result.

[As a freezer fades in with no lights surrounding it, everyone imitates the theme from "2001: A Space Odyssey".]
Narrator: Yes, this is the answer: a real selling wizard.
[The lights go on]
Servo: Are we in heaven?
Crow: [as the lights finish] Rip-off!

Mike: It's a little big; I just want a hotplate!

Narrator: And what's the first feature that makes a selling wizard?
Servo: Bosoms!
Narrator: Sales appeal styling.
Crow: Or "S. A. S."

[Talking about the advantage of easily taking inventory with the freezer]
Narrator: One glance, and you know if the cabinet requires filling.
Servo: Just one glance, don't look back.

[Noticing a box in the freezer]
Mike: This is frozen cotton?

Narrator: And notice how these convient horizontal wire shelves put your product always within buying range.
Narrator: They may be removed entirely for loading to full-cabient capacity.
Crow: But don't put your tongue on it!

[The camera pans down, showing the "Selling Wizard's" lovely gams]
Crow: Boy, she's got a big scab on her knee.
Narrator: Gentlemen! If you please!
Mike [as Narrator]: You filthy degenerates!

[The Narrator is describing the good points of a freezer]
Narrator: Yes, on every count...
Mike [as Narrator]: Guilty!

Servo: Next step, open a grocery store.

Mike: This freezer rules!

[Showing how a forced-air conditioner works]
Narrator: This simplified sketch showing a cross-section of the cabinet...
Mike: ...makes no sense.
. . .
Crow: (Midwestern accent) Ah, better plug in the car.
. . .
Mike: (singing) And it comes out here...
. . .

Crow: But I need a stove.

Narrator: In this all-purpose, two-lid utility storage cabinet with 23-cubic-foot storage capacity...
Mike [as Narrator]: Bodies stack easy.

[Over the "The End" card]
Servo [as Ed McMahon]: And remember to buy Ed McMahon's Budweiser ice cream.
All: Hi-yo!
Mike: Leni Riefenstahl's most powerful film.
Servo: Hi-yo!

The Dead Talk Back (movie)

Crow: [as a TV announcer] Tonight's episode: "The Dead Go Fishing" with special guest star Robert Culp.

[During a night scene illuminated by a single dim spot light:]
Crow: The first movie filmed entirely with flashlights.
Servo [as cinematographer]: C'mon, Merle! I only got two more D-cells left!
Mike: Probably blew their budget on those bongo players. I just said a lot of B's.

[As a driver tries unsuccessfully to start their car]
Crow: With 34 cylinders, the cars of yesteryear were impossible to flood.
Servo: She's flooding the radio.
[As a man in a trench coat runs towards the car]
Mike: And Creepy Triple-A is there.
Crow [as driver]: Maybe this isn't my car.
Servo: Geez, not since Moonraker has there been an exciting opening sequence.

[Krasker introduces himself]
Krasker: Have you been hearing some weird stories recently?
Servo [as Krasker]: About Chuck Berry?
Krasker: About telepathy?
Crow: I knew you were going to say that.
Krasker: The fourth dimension?
Servo: Or Marilyn McCoo?
Krasker: Or ghosts?
Mike: Hmm, no, it doesn't ring a bell. We must have the wrong movie.
Krasker: The case that I'm working on at the present time involves a little of each.
Crow: Hang on a sec here, I've got this one thing.
Krasker: Me?
Mike: You?
Krasker: Who am I?
Servo [as Krasker]: Frankly I've forgotten.
Krasker: I'm a private investigator. Criminology is my hobby.
Crow [as Krasker]: I sell parts of my record collection to make ends meet. I also manage a bowling alley... Oh, look, I'm kind of between projects at the moment. [softly] Mike, help me!
Krasker: My philosophy?
Servo [as Krasker]: Lots of leather.
Krasker; Metaphysics. What is metaphysics?
Mike [as Krasker]: It's really hard.
Krasker: There's a long, complicated explanation to that question.
Servo: [sarcastically] Which he'll be happy to give us.

Krasker: Wouldn't it be fantastic... to be able to speak to someone who has just passed over?
Servo: Quit squirming.
Krasker: Why just think! We could find lost articles...
Servo [as Krasker]: Coupons!
Krasker: Treasures... Gold mines...
Crow [as Krasker]: You're not buying any of this, are you?
Krasker: We could even solve murders... by just contacting the murdered.
Mike [as Krasker]: I'm so lonely... [sobs]

[Krasker switches on his radio for talking to the dead:]
Krasker: It takes a while for... temperature attunement.
Crow: Uh-huh...
Servo: Yeah.
Krasker: Warming up.
Crow: Sure.
Krasker: We'll try it again later.
Crow [as Krasker]: Are you wearing corduroy? 'Cause that affects the radio, you know. You should also wash your hair a lot so the vibrations work.
Mike [as Krasker]: This's gonna take a while; you wanna hang out? We could play air hockey, but we'd have to be kinda quiet 'cause my dad works third shift...
Krasker: The problem of communicating with the... departed...
Servo [as Krasker]: Is that they're dead.

[A large, full bookshelf stands against the far wall:]
Mike [as officer]: Ya look at that? All the books Joyce Carol Oates published last month.

[Close-up of crossbow being fired]
Servo: [singing] Shoot that poison arrow through my heaaaaaaa-aaart!

[After discarding a pair of shoes, a suspect drives off in a 1960's Volkswagen Bug:]
Servo [as suspect]: The heater never works in this thing. Starts well, though...
Crow: One thing about this getaway? Great gas mileage.
Servo: Zero to sixty... in about an hour.

[There's some kind of audible fuzz on the soundtrack]
Servo: Is someone purring?
[Crow looks around for a bit]

[Krasker is deep into a seance using a razor blade inside a wine glass as a "receiver"]
Krasker: Tell us who you are. It's important that we know.
Mike: To talk to the dead, press one. If you'd like the Ethereum, the Imperium, or the Emerald Beyond, please hold.
Woman: I can't hear it clearly—
Servo: That's because it's a RAZOR BLADE IN A GLASS!!!

[Krasker lights up a cigar before the seance]
Crow [as Krasker/Bill Cosby]: And m' wife...came downstairs...her face...was split! Hah hah hah...razzim frazzim...

[During the end credits]
Crow: Hey, I just realized something: They NEVER talked to the dead!

Zombie Nightmare

[The opening credits identify the heavy metal bands who contributed music to the soundtrack: Motorhead...]
Servo: Oh, Motorhead! I have their latest collection of Cole Porter tunes!
Crow: Uh, that's Womanschool?
Servo: [lisping] Oh, I think Thor ith fabulouth.
Mike: Oh, Deathmask ! They played at my parents' anniversary party!
[...and Fist.]
Servo: And I saw Fist when they opened for Badfinger!

[Before the car hits Tony]
Servo: Don't worry, his area will protect him!
[Tony gets hit by car]
Servo: ...Or not.

Gypsy: I used to like you when you were a Caped Crusader, even better than Darth Vader. But then you were the best, but now you are like all the rest. That's all, so see you later.

[After running over Tony, the music stops as the teens frantically clamor to each other and scramble to get out of the car.]
Mike [as one of the teens]: I think we hit a moose!
Crow [as one of the teens]: [hysterical] C'MON, TURN THE TAPE OVER!!!

[As Hank the grocer runs over to Tony's body]
Crow: There's a deeeaaaaad hunk in the middle of the road! Dead boy!

[Bobby knocks on the window of their car, talking to Jim]
Bobby: Hey, what's the matter?
Mike [as Jim]: This Kansas song just makes me so sad!

Jim: What are you looking at? Eat your ice cream!

[Zombie Tony stumbles towards a college-like athletic building]
Crow [as Tony]: Must... register... for... semester!
. . .
[The soundtrack is peppered with sporadic metallic clanging noises.]
Servo: Damn radiator!
Crow: Soundtrack by John Cage.

[Zombie Tony looks up to a bright light]
Servo: The dead Zone is for loading and unloading only...

[When Adam West first appears on screen, sitting behind a desk, smoking a cigar]
Servo [as Batman TV announcer]: What's this?

[Police Captain Churchman (Adam West) walks over to a reluctant punk murder suspect being restrained by workers and kicks him in the face.]
Crow: Oh that was easy for him, he just pretended it was Tim Burton.

Det. Sorrell: [on the issue of Bobby's murder] The kid was impaled with a baseball bat; I don't know how this James Earl guy could do it!
Capt. Churchman: Maybe James Earl has a great batting average.
Servo: But it's the R.B.Is that count, isn't it?

[Zombie Tony is returning to the cemetery after a night of killing]
Crow: Y'know, ironically, they were only able to bust the zombie for tax evasion! [chuckles]

[As a car backs up, turns around and drives away]
Servo: Hal Needham was brought in to direct this scene.
[The car drives off the screen.]
Servo: And that's it.

Colossus and the Headhunters

[Our hero Maciste (AKA Colossus) returns to find pandemonium: people are running in every direction, large stones falling around, and a volcano erupting.]
Servo [as Maciste]: I leave you alone for one hour—!

Ariel: What is your name?
Maciste: Maciste, and yours?
Crow: [holding back laughter] Cheesesteak?

[The camera pans very slowly down Maciste's body as he steers the raft]
Crow: Hmm... the camera operator is indulging himself here...

[After many days on a raft, Maciste pulls the sail aside to see land nearby.]
Crow: Oh, it was behind the sail the whole time!
Maciste: Land! Land!
Servo [as Maciste]: It would be really great if we found some land!
Mike [as Maciste]: It's... the wrong land, never mind, sorry.

[Maciste has been shot in the chest with an arrow, but he pulls it out effortlessly and gets to his feet.]
Crow: [snickering] Luckily, this was before death had been invented.

[Queen Amoa is explaining her peoples' problem to Maciste at considerable length.]
Crow [as Maciste]: [wearily] Hey, look, my island blew up!

[Two men grapple on a rope bridge and tumble over the side.]
Servo: Oh no! It's a horrible drop into...
[They land in the water, about two feet below the bridge.]
Servo: Oh. Heh.
. . .
[More soldiers tumble off the bridge, continuing to fight in the river.]
Servo [as soldier]: Hey, this is fun! Whoopee!
Mike: And thus, synchronized swimming was invented!

[The beanstalk-thin villain, Kermes, is explaining his evil plans to Queen Amoa.]
Kermes: The fragile shoulders of a woman can not bear the burdens of a kingdom without assistance.
Mike: Pssh! He's talking about fragile shoulders.
Kermes: Maintaining a throne demands courage, wisdom, bravery, and cruelty...
Servo: And pants!
Kermes: And all the other virtues that only... a MAN could possibly possess.
Crow: Well, at least you're not pompous.
. . .
Kermes: That is why you and I will rule together with me as your...
Servo: Dun-dun-dun!
Kermes: ...advisor.
Crow: Huh?!
. . .
[Queen Amoa rebukes Kermes as he looks on with a devastated look on his face.]
Mike [as Kermes]: Why are you yelling at me? This is my greatest moment, stop it!

Crow: Isn't it cute the way they're making a stab at a plot?

[A fight scene has broken out.]
Mike: Well, it's not a plot point... and it's not an action sequence... so what is it?

[Queen Amoa demands that a dance be performed before her wedding as a stalling tactic... and the dance is really, really bad.]
Servo: Now this will anger the gods!
. . .
[The not very good dance goes on and on.]
Mike: So... the director has a girlfriend.
Crow: Apparently!
. . .
Crow: This is history's first awkward moment.
Mike: [dramatically] For the first time, people don't know where to look.
. . .
Crow [as the blind King]: I think it's pretty good!

[The camera pans across a battle in the headhunters' village—and past an embarrased-looking tribesman standing awkwardly by himself.]
Mike: Aw, poor guy doesn't have a fighting partner!

[The effeminate villain, Kermes, drops a portcullis to trap Maciste.]
Mike [as Kermes]: [Lisping.] I caught you, you bitch!

[Kermes ambushes Maciste and, in the ensuing fight, gets stabbed with his own sword.]
Mike [as Maciste]: Wow, those sharp things really work!
. . .
Servo: And three quarters into the movie, Maciste finally does something!

The Creeping Terror

Crow: [while the crew indulges in a coffee shop setting scenario, trying to avoid coming off as pretentious] It's definitely not working. ... [in a snobby tone] I've been recording my life in pastel!
Servo: The only question worth asking is "What am I going through right now?".
Gypsy: [as a in-house guitarist, towards Mike] You- the white male- are my personal oppressor. Oh my!
Crow: Yes, she is so great! I saw her one-woman show; her soul cried out to me.
Gypsy: So I'll take my rage, and box it up, and take it out with the trash!
Mike: Thanks a lot, Dr. Forrester; see what you've done? You turned my friends into a bunch of self-absorbed poseurs!
Gypsy: A white male middle-class power holder would say that, Mike!

Servo: [while he and Mike stage a parody vignette of "Love, American Style", holding a wedding ring] Well, I'm finally going to propose to Debbie!
Mike: That's great; let's see the ring. [puts it on his finger, and it gets stuck] The ring's stuck!
Servo: I guess we'll have to get married! [chuckles as he and Mike kiss]

The Creeping Terror (film)

[Sheriff Ben and Deputy Martin examine a spacecraft.]
Sheriff Ben: It could be one of our missiles.
Servo [as Martin]: This county has missiles, sir?

[The carpet/alien is "devouring" a victim, who is obviously climbing into the prop's mouth]
Mike [as Alien]: Uh, if you could help me out by climbing in...
Crow [as Alien]: I can't believe I ate the whole thing!

Woman: [checking her baby who is seen crying in their crib] Poor baby; let mommy take your temperature.
Crow: [as baby] No! Get lost!
Servo: Uh, I don't I wanna see what's about to happen.
Crow: [as baby; while the woman grabs a rectal thermometer] Wait, you're gonna put that where?! I'm not sick; I'm fine! I'm getting better!
Mike: [as baby after getting checked] Owwww, you'll pay for this!
Woman: Poor baby; you'll feel better soon.
Mike: What about picking him up, or feeding him?
Servo: [as woman] That's done. Now I have the whole day to myself!

[A woman hangs laundry, consisting entirely of white items.]
Crow: When Tom Wolfe's wife does the laundry!

[Pursued by the monster, a morbidly obese man falls over into a shallow stream and flails around wildly]
Servo: Let the current take you away! SWIIIIM!
Mike: And the world has one less Santa.

Narrator: The monster next appeared in Lovers' Lane.
Mike [as Narrator]: …to a sold-out crowd!
Narrator: Everyone who experienced that catastrophe and survived would never go there again.
Servo [as Narrator]: And those who did not survive such a catastrophe also would not go there again.

[at a formal dance, the alien appears and the crowd starts screaming in terror]
Mike: [as the Alien] I know, it's a cheap suit; but it's all I had.
Servo: [as the Alien] Why is everybody lookin' at me?
Woman: [flatly exclaiming] My God; what is it?!
[Crow, Servo, and Mike all break out laughing]

[Martin desperately tries to disable the ship's computers by beating it with his pistol.]
Mike: Hey, there's bullets in the other end of that thing!


Gypsy: [of Pearl Forrester's influence on Clay] Now I understand why he's so sick! Boy, I'm tempted to call her something that rhymes with 'bitch'! Oh, I mean 'witch'!
Servo: She said the word! Gypsy's in trouble; Gypsy's in trouble!

[On the SOL bridge, Mike and the Bots are in costumes.]
Servo: Ah! Hello. Welcome to tonight's Mystery… Murder… Dinner… Party
Crow: I did it!
Gypsy, Servo, Mike: CROW!

Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm (short)

Mike: Is Velveeta a member of the National Dairy Council?
Servo: No, Velveeta's a splinter group.

[The title appears on screen]
Crow: I thought I smelled something!
Servo: Yes, the farm of secrets and lies.

Narrator: This is a story about the summer George and Betty spent on Uncle Jim's dairy farm.
Servo [as Narrator]: A cautionary tale.
Narrator: George and Betty are both excited because this is a very special trip.
Crow [as Narrator]: They're dropping off the kids and never coming back.
Narrator: But they're not a bit more excited than Andy and Jane, who live on the farm.
Mike: Poor saps.

[The kids take turns ringing a bell to call Jim.]
Mike: Ah, yes, the bell signals a nuclear attack in these parts.
Crow: Well, now they have nothing to look forward to!
Servo [as George]: I never want this day to end!

Crow [as Narrator]: Already the children have disturbed Uncle Jim. Uncle Jim is an edgy man who should not be riled.

[As grain pours out of a spout]
Servo [as Uncle Jim]: See? We dump this stuff in the creek and the government pays us for it.
Crow [as Betty]: I just saw a finger!
Mike [as George]: [whining] Can we go home?

[The kids are playing in the hayloft]
Servo: Now Junior Samples and Lulubelle make their appearance.
Mike [as Andy]: I don't think cause my doctor-- I'm frail and I have allergies-- but if you really want me to...
Servo [as Andy]: OW, I FOUND A PITCHFORK!
Crow: All the commotion provokes a bull snake resting in the head.
Mike [as George]: I gotta be careful of my new jeans 'cause I got them at Pamida.
Servo: Tonight on ESPN2, hayloft rope swinging.
Mike: You'd better watch, 'cause it might happen.

Narrator: George and Andy help Bill feed the pigs every day.
Servo [as Narrator]: Day after life-sucking day.

[Betty and Jane play with baby chicks]
Narrator: Baby chicks, too...
Mike: Hey, they're women-- oh.

[A rooster crows and the girls wake up in their bunk bed]
Servo: Three hours later, it's up again.
Crow: Back home, a Hershey's truck has overturned and everyone is getting all the free chocolate they want.
Mike [as Betty]: Uncle Jim's out of control. We frag him today.

Servo: Mmm, good white, hearty white bread for white people.

Narrator: As the summer passed, everything seemed to grow. The corn was knee high when George came, now it's taller than he is.
Servo: George is clearly shrinking.

Narrator: The summer is over, and George and Betty are waiting for their parents to take them back to the city.
Mike and Crow [as George and Jane]: FREEDOM!
[Their parents drive up to the farm]
Servo [as George and Jane's father]: Just throw them their winter clothes and then floor it!
Crow [as George]: Hey, they're driving right by-- Wait! Wait!

[The short ends with everyone waving as they drive off]
Crow [as Uncle Jim]: Goodbye! We'll send you that arm if we find it!
Mike [as George]: So long, you corn-shucking suckers!

Bloodlust! (movie)

[Over the opening title]
Servo: The story of Wisconsin sausage.

[Our helpless "heroes" are instructed to go to "The Tree Of Death" where they will find means to fight back Balleau. Cut to a tree with a jawless skull on it]
Mike [as the skull]: [muffled and sarcastically] Oh, oh, REAL good plan! "Let's go to the Tree Of Death right away!"

[In Balleau's "gallery", one of his victims is kneeling with his hands extended]
Mike [as Al Jolson]: [singing] Mammy! Mammy! I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles!

Crow: [indignantly] I don't like the villain!

Balleau: [towards Tony] Tony; I have reconsidered.
Mike: [as Balleau, shooting Tony in the stomach with a crossbow bolt] John Steinbeck in Of Mice and Murder.
Tom Servo: [as Tony screams in pain and dies] Rail! Rail against the dying of the-

[Balleau finally meets his end after being impaled on one of his trophy stands.]
Mike: Now, see, if earlier in the film this guy had said "I'll never be impaled on my own rack", then this would be ironic.

Code Name: Diamond Head


A Day at the Fair (short)

[The opening title and copyright information only appear for a few seconds.]
Crow: Hey, I didn't finish!

[At the very beginning of the short]
Narrator: This is the fairground, where the fair is held.
Servo: Any questions so far?

[The Olson family loads their truck for the county fair.]
Narrator: Into the truck goes one of the calves that Johnny Olson has raised.
Servo [as Narrator/Barker]: Tell us what they've won, Johnny Olson! [N]

Narrator: Johnny goes first to see the fish.
Crow [as Johnny]: I like fish...
Narrator: Say, these bass would make good fishing! If only they were in the creek back home.
Mike: Well, see, they were in the creek, but they've been caught and that's why they're here.

[Bob and Johnny are examining a collection of moths on display at the fairgrounds]
Crow [as Narrator]: Later, these moths turn up in the mouths of Bob's victims!

[Showing a collection of pickle jars]
Servo: Pickles pack the stands for the pickle races!
[The short cuts to a new scene]
Narrator: What's this?
Crow: EVIL!

[A matronly judge unenthusiastically samples a cake.]
Narrator: Judging cakes oughta be fun.
Servo [as Narrator]: … but this woman sucks the joy out of it!

[The stern-looking judge closely examines a cake.]
Narrator: First, she feels the cake...
Crow [as Narrator]: ...then she rubs it into her hair...

[As the Olsens go to have lunch...]
Mike [as Mr. Olsen]: Let's go eat something gray.

[The Narrator talks about lunchtime at the fair over footage of children eating, including a noticeably obese boy chowing down on a foot-long hot dog.]
Servo [as Narrator]: Watch the boy on the left. His heart's about to explode! Waaait...
. . .
Narrator: Over at the 4-H Booth, they get fried chicken with all the trimmings!
Crow: [confused] What, tinsel, little lights?
Servo: This is an actual 4-H feeding frenzy.
. . .
Narrator: Other fairgoers like to picnic on the grass like this.
Mike [as Narrator]: Grazing in the grass is a gas. Baby, can you dig it?

[Bob Olson examines a jet plane.]
Narrator: Bob still has lots to see. This is a jet plane.
Servo [as Bob]: Where's the corn go?
Narrator: Wonder what it would be like to fly it?
Mike [as Narrator]: ...over Cambodia, secretly maintaining plausible deniability. [N]

[Harness races at the grandstand]
Crow [as horse]: Get the car! There's carrots in the car!
Servo [as horse]: Carrots? I love carrots!
. . .
Mike: A wheel slices into the crowd, killing three!
Crow: [quietly, as if off in distance] Aiieee...
Servo: Still, nothing measures up to those bass, huh?
. . .
Narrator: They're into the curb.
Servo: And they're into jazz.
Crow [as boy]: Come on, you chunk of dog food, I got a year's allowance on ya!
. . .
[One horse is way behind.]
Mike [as horse]: Uh, hey guys, wait up!
. . .
Narrator: The race is over.
Crow: And The Oak Ridge Boys take the stage.
Mike [singing as The Oak Ridge Boys] Elvira...
[Fade to the next scene]
Servo [as Bob]: Dad, I owe Big Lenny 42 large!

[At the 4-H cow show, the judge announces the winner.]
Narrator: Well! The champion's blue ribbon goes to a girl!
Crow [as Narrator]: The cows are furious!

[As the short ends]
Narrator: Too soon, the rides are over.
Crow [as Narrator]: The lawsuts begin.
Narrator: And too soon, all the fun comes to an end.
. . .
Crow [as one of the Olsons]: You spent your nickel, we're done.

Code Name: Diamond Head (movie)

[Over a pristine shot of Hawaiian beach...]
Crow: Well, this is a very nice place, I can see why families would want to—
[A man suddenly pops his head up into frame and starts singing.]
Mike, Servo, & Crow: AAAAAAAAH!

Servo: This is so almost Mitchell.
Crow: It's about fifty pounds short of Mitchell.

The Skydivers


Why Study Industrial Arts? (short)

[Over the title screen]
Crow: Because you're bad at math?

Mike: No students' arms were harmed in the making of this film.

[The short is a Centron production.]
Servo: Thank you, Centron!

[We are brought to a dull and rather gloomy industrial arts course in progress.]
Crow: [after several seconds of silence] Depressed yet?
Joe [voiceover]: You know, it's fun to have an idea.
Mike [as Joe]: There, wasn't that fun?

[In voiceover, industrial arts nerd Joe talks about his beloved craft.]
Joe: And you know, I like the feel of a board moving smoothly against a sharp saw.
Mike [as Joe]: [luridly] ...then I thrust the nail into the soft, yielding wood...
Joe: I like the smell of fresh wood chips and sawdust...
Servo [as Joe]: [nervously] I put them in my underwear!
Joe: ...the bright glare of a welder...
Crow [as Joe]: [wobbily] I like to sneak in and lay on the table saw!
Servo [as Joe]: Yes!
Joe: ...the sharp whine of the power tools…
Mike [as Joe]: ...the piercing scream of a freshman…
Joe: ...or the dull tap-tap of tools on leather.
Crow [as Joe]: [wobbily] Tap ta-tap-tap... I keep Popular Mechanics under my mattress!
Servo: The feeling of chaps with no pants!
Joe: ...A wrench...
Mike: Let it go, man! Shop class was a long time ago! It's OVER!
Joe: ...A plane...
Crow [as Joe]: [haltingly] These tools are my friends!
Joe: ...or a chisel...
Servo: What about girls young man? Girls?
Mike: No, no, chisels!
Joe: And I feel real good, because I'm a craftsman.
Mike [as Joe]: And not a killer!
Joe: Of course, I don't know if I'd ever tell my buddies all this. 'Cuz, well, sometimes they laugh when you tell them things like that.
Crow [as Joe]: Then they pants you and drag you around the track…

[Joe's buddy admires a piece of Joe's handywork.]
Joe's buddy: Wow, you made this?
Mike [as Joe]: I'm making it for the Grand Wizard.
Joe's buddy: Ya know, this looks as good as furniture you'd buy in a store.
Joe: It ought to, it's taken me long enough to make it.
Joe's buddy: Kinda slow, huh?
Joe: Yeah, but I've learned after making this one that I can probably make another in about half the time.
Crow [as Joe]: Still, your Mexicans do it real cheap.

Joe's buddy: How'd ya like this shop class, Joe?
Joe: I like it swell. Why?
[Scene cuts to Joe's big eared buddy]
Servo [as Joe's buddy]: Could you staple my ears back?

[Mr. Barnes is in the middle of explaining the importance of taking an industrial arts course to Joe. However, his speech is monotonous, and he speaks haltingly.]
Mr. Barnes: [We'll need] carpenters.
Servo [as Mr. Barnes]: [woodenly] We'll need actors. People who can read. Lines with... and interact with others.
. . .
[Mr. Barnes continues explaining over a shot of the inside of a foundry.]
Mr. Barnes: [We'll need] foundry men.
Mike: [singing] Oh, you never would believe where those Keebler cookies come from...
Mr. Barnes: Tool operators.
Crow, Servo: [singing] Tool operator . . . tooooooool operator . . .

[As the short ends]
Crow: This is the film the boys had to watch and the girls had to go to the gym and watch the other film!

The Skydivers (movie)

[The opening credits list over three dozen actors.]
Servo: Oh, I know what this is, this is an "I-can't-pay-you-but-I'll-put-your-name-in-the-credits" cast list.

Suzy: Is Frankie here?
Beth: Frankie's not here.
Mike: Frankie goes to Hollywood.

Beth: Would you like some coffee?
Joe Moss: Coffee?
Crow [as Joe]: What is this "coffee"?
Joe Moss: [stiltedly] I like coffee!
Beth: Well, good!
Mike: And thus we peer into the complex inner workings of this character.
. . .
[Beth and Joe walk across the airfield]
Servo [as Joe]: Where is it, your "coffee"?

[The plane Beth is in starts to malfunction before it even leaves the ground]
Crow: Terror at Sea-level.
Servo: [giggling] More terrifying than Airport '77!

[Harry pulls his hugely coiffed wife Beth out of the malfunctioning plane.]
Harry: What happened?
Mike [as Beth]: I saw my hair in the mirror and I panicked!

[Beth looks on as Harry [played by Tony Cardoza] straps on a parachute in what appears to be the middle of a desert field.]
Mike [as Beth]: Uh, I think you'll need the plane, too, Tony.
Harry: Bob, you ready?
Bob: [off-camera] Sure, Harry!
[Cut to a parachuted man making his way out from the back of a deep hangar.]
Servo: Wait! He- he- he was there, and now we g— the plane was—!
Mike: [sputters unintelligibly]
Crow: Someone with attention deficit disorder edited this film.
. . .
[A helmeted Harry climbs into the unmarked, unnumbered white plane.]
Crow: What's the point of a helmet in skydiving? In case you land on your head?

[Poofy-haired Beth watches Harry take off.]

[Harry carries Suzy, wearing a hooded white beach robe and opaque sunglasses, from her boat to her boat-like convertible.]

Bernie: I feel real free in that wild blue sky.
Crow [as Bernie]: Cops can't touch me up there.
Bernie: ...Feels good, making like a bird, floating around up there.
Mike [as Bernie]: Poopin' on people.

[After half an hour of mumbled dialog and uneventful skydiving...]
Mike: Seems like they forgot to have things happen in this movie.

[As Harry departs, Beth walks up to his friend Joe. The coveralled pair exchanges a meaningful look.]
Crow: Two zips and we're naked!

[Of Suzy's dimwitted, pliable paramour, Frankie...]
Crow: He's like an idiot savant—minus the savant.

Suzy: Well, Frankie, are you chicken?
Mike [as Frankie]: Uh, let me see... am I a chicken? Well I don't have a comb, or a gizzard, but sometimes I do ingest gravel to grind my food and my—uh...

[Suzy and Frankie sneak into the hangar, where white skydiving helmets peek out between folded chutes.]
Mike: Oh, no! The skydivers have been laying their huge eggs!

[The crowd applauds as the night divers arrive to board their plane.]
Mike: This isn't The Right Stuff; it's just... some stuff.

[A middle-aged man in a plane aims a rifle at Suzy and Frankie as they flee in their car.]
Mike [as Man]: [muttering] I see me a hippie. [shouting] Getcher hair cut, hippie! Not so "groovy", is it?

[Joe, in his energy-less delivery, says goodbye to the widowed Beth.]

Crow: Come with what?
Servo: Me, Crow, me! Are you going to come with me?!

Crow: So what time's dinner?
Servo: Noon okay?

Best wishes, Frank." [realizes the threat] OH MY GOD! MIKE! TOM! CROW! WE GOT TO STOP HIM! [goes back to the letter] "P.S. Hope you like the pinking shears."

Crow: Well, if Frank goes through with his plan, that means no more mad scientists!

Servo: Oh, that's right I guess...
Mike: This is a dead end, a blank wall, an empty check!
Gypsy: It's no piece of cake, that's for sure!
Mike: Wait!, Hold it Gypsy, say that again...
Gypsy: I said, "It is no piece of cake!"
Mike: Potato cakes! That's it!
Crow: Potato cakes?
Mike: Remind me to buy you a new hat next payday sweetheart! [hugs and kisses Gypsy]

Mike: Yeah, even being Carol Channing didn't shield me from the effect of this one.
Servo: Well, hey! I know what we can do to cheer ourselves up! Let's sing us a bouncy, upbeat song! Okay!?
Crow: That's a great idea!
Mike: Okay!
Servo: Hit it, Cambot! [singing] Whenever I want to cry and bawl, Because I'm feeling sad, I think of ironing boards and drywall, And then I don't feel so bad!
Crow: Whenever I'm feeling down and blue And sorry for myself I get some staples and some glue And I'm happy as an elf!
Mike: [singing] Whenever I start to mope and pout And there's nothing left in my soul I check the toilet paper and if we're out I buy another roll!
Gypsy: [singing] Have you ever touched a Post-it Note? Have you ever looked at boots? Have you ever sat down in a chair? Have you ever used a paper clip?
Crow: [singing] So if you listen to our advice,
Servo: [singing] And you wanna feel terrific!
Gypsy: [singing] Do things that make you feel nice,
Mike: [singing] I wish we could be more specific!

Speech: Platform, Posture & Appearance (short)

Narrator: The ear is the human organ the public speaker is most likely to try to impress as he makes a speech.
Servo [as Narrator]: …after the human nipple.

Narrator: Now, just suppose you were a beautiful doll with rosy cheeks and big blue eyes...
Mike: ...Okay...
Narrator: ...a doll that never talked.
Mike: [nervously] Just do what he says...
Narrator: Or a tree, that basked in the warm sunshine and rustled in the breeze: a tree that never spoke.
Servo: Now you're a can opener! Metal and shiny and taciturn!

[The narrator is describing appropriate clothing while a shady-looking man dresses.]
Narrator: Be sure to wear a clean shirt...
Crow: Be sure to get a brand-new chin.
Narrator: ...and your favorite tie.
Servo: Now you're ready to rub out Sonny Corleone!

[A person does the "knee test," where he puts his palms on his knees and swivels them]
Narrator: ...You will look poised and dignified.
Mike: Uh, no you won't.
. . .
Crow: Don't do this during the speech.

Red Zone Cuba (movie)

[A train conductor appears, looking very old and decrepit. Mike realizes that the actor portraying him is...]
Mike: John Carradine!
Crow: Was he always a hundred years old?

[Young journalist Jim Benton is talking to train conductor Wilson (John Carradine).]
Servo: Kid looks like a reporter from the Catholic Digest.

[Close-up of John Carradine smoking a cigarette...]
Servo: [deep voice] John Carradine for Viceroy.
[Close-up of young Jim smoking...]
Crow: [lisping] Sal Mineo for Viceroy!

[A heavy-set, stubble-haired Coleman Francis appears running from cops, identified by credits as the star]
Mike [as Announcer]: Coleman Francis is Curly Howard, in The Fugitive!
Servo [as Curly Howard]: Hey, Moe!

[A truck heads down the highway with convict runaway Griffin stowed away in the back.]
Mike: [singing to the Eagles' "Take It Easy"]
Runnin' down the road, tryin' to loosen my load
I got Coleman Francis on my mind.

[While "Cherokee Jack" flies over some snow covered mountains...]
Mike: Hey, I see some soccer players down there...

[Standing before a crude map, "Lieutenant" Joe addresses his extremely tiny Cuba invasion force.]
Joe: Men, we're shoving off right after sundown...
Crow, Servo [as Men]: You shove off!
Joe: …and I want to give you some idea of what to expect.
Mike [as Joe]: There's 80,000 of them, and seven of us.
Joe: At 12 o'clock midnight, we hit the beach. At 12:30 a patrol boat makes its nightly run. We have 30 minutes to scale 80 foot cliffs and clear the beach.
Servo [as Joe]: Ted, you take Havana.
. . .
Joe: We have a man in Cuba that will throw ropes over the cliff at 12 midnight.
Mike [as Joe]: At 12:15 we're captured!

[Griffin (played by Coleman Francis) and the rest of the Cuban invasion force are captured by Castro's forces.]
Mike [as Cuban Soldier]: The Yankees will pay highly for you, Señor Francis.

[As Griffin is beating on Landis at a trainyard, the scene suddenly changes to an auto shop exterior, even while the fight music continues.]
Mike: Ah! I think my neck got broken in that jump cut!
Servo: [sighs] I see the movie has finally thrown up its hands and said "I just don't know!"
Crow: I want to hurt this movie, but I could never hurt it the way it hurt me!

[The antiheroes make some purchases at a seedy-looking mom-and-pop store while some inappropriately cheerful music plays on the soundtrack.]
Mike [as Store Clerk]: Would you like a video? We have some super-violent, Asian, triple-X cartoons!
[Our heroes discuss the film's title.]
Servo: Oh, I'm glad they said "Danger!", or I might have thought it was just a normal death ray.
Mike: There's a dangerous death ray situation on outbound 94, you might want to take an alternate route.
. . .
[The movie's theme song is a catchy jazz number accompanied by "ba-pa-da-pa-da-da" scat-sung vocals]
Mike: What do they mean by "Ba-pa-da-pa-da-da"? Is it protest?
Crow: It was originally titled "La-la-la-la-la-la" - big creative dispute.

Crow: What country is this taking place in?
Mike: Europe.

[Over a shot of a group of men walking down a hallway]
Mike: They really have captured the grandeur of white guys walking in herds.

[Over a shot of man watching security cameras in a control booth]
Crow: (in a snooty British accent) You're watching Brian Television: All Brian, all the time.
[On the rightmost monitor, we see the group of men walking into vision]
Mike: In an underground bunker, the Major League owners plot strategies.
Servo [as watcher]: Why can't I get the Red Shoe Diaries?

[We cut to an obvious toy submarine surfacing within a pool of water.]
Mike: The Tidy Bowl Man is doing all right for himself.
Servo: They're coming up for more baking soda.
[Crow begins snickering.]
Mike: Ah, the ocean's beautiful in this part of the tub.
[Crow snickers again.]
Servo: This set is at least three box tops.
Crow: [recovering his composure] Special effects by... Billy!
. . .
[The radar operator climbs a ladder toward a hatch.]
Mike: Don't go up there! You'll become a toy!
. . .
[The men from the helicopter have climbed down into the submarine.]
Sub Captain: Okay. We can dive.
Servo [as Captain]: Billy's out of the tub. We can dive now.
Crow [as Captain]: Head towards the drain.
[Shot in slow motion, the sub pulls away and the toy helicopter "falls" off into the water.]
Mike: Das Toy Boat!
Servo [as Captain]: Uhp, did somebody tie on the helicopter?
Crow: Oop! Eh... This must be a massive organization to be able to throw away a $1.50 helicopter.

[Bart Fargo attacks one of the evil henchmen and grabs him by the throat.]
Bart Fargo: You're the one who knows everything...
Mike [as Fargo]: Who's God?

[A couple of henchmen burst into Lucille's apartment looking for Bart Fargo.]
Henchman: We're looking for a man.
Mike [as Henchman]: Are you him?
Lucille: My word, so am I! Let me know if you find an extra one.
Servo [as Henchman]: I think you know what I meant!

[Bart Fargo foils an assassination attempt by Scarface, who was disguised as a concierge.]
Bart Fargo: You know, Scarface, that was a very silly get-up. It didn't suit you. And your imitation of a waiter was very funny. "Your breakfast, señor..." You should have changed your voice too.
[Bart opens a balcony window and chuckles. Scarface lunges at Bart, but misses and dives out the window, screaming.]
Servo: Olé!
[Crow giggles.]
Mike [as Bart]: And the way you dove out the window was just terrible!
[Scarface lands on the pavement with a thump.]
Servo [as Bart]: Ooh, sorry, ma'am.
Bart Fargo: That's too bad.
Crow: Oh, come on! What about "he really fell for me"? Or "his hopes have been crushed"?

[Bart Fargo's car skids off the road, over a cliff, and into the sea; however, the effect is clearly achieved by someone simply rolling a toy car off a rock into the water.]
Servo: Hot Wheels!
Crow: Some little boy is going to be very upset.

[Bart Fargo repeatedly slaps an assassin in the face.]
Servo [as Assassin/Mulwray]: My sister! My daughter! My sister! My daughter!

[A baccarat game is in progress.]
Croupier: Mesdames et Messieurs, banque $10,000.
Crow [as Player]: It'd better be a damn good bonk.

[After Bart Fargo's partner is gunned down, the movie's catchy, upbeat "Ba-pa-da-pa-da-da" theme music starts up again.]
Servo: This isn't appropriate right now, his friend is dying over there!
Servo: But it's nice.
Mike: It is nice, yeah.
[Crow laughs.]

Crow: Bart Fargo IS... Hard to— watch.

Crow: Bart Fargo. Bartfargobartfargobartfargobartfargo... Heh, that's hard!

The Beast of Yucca Flats

Gypsy: Huh?... [sees the new wallpaper] OH, MY GOD! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! [Leaves]
Crow: Sometimes, a new look takes a little getting used to.

Money Talks (short)

[William looks at a Franklin half-dollar he's holding.]
William: Fifty cents. Half a dollar.
Servo: In those days, that'd buy you a car.
William: Benjamin Franklin, eh?
Crow [as William]: Bite me, Franklin!
William: He was supposed to be a pretty smart fellow when it came to money. I suppose he could've told me how to keep out of the red.
Crow [as William]: He was the best President we ever had. [N]
. . .
[Ben Franklin's silhouette appears in the mirror.]
Servo: Alfred Hitchcock! [N]

Ben Franklin: You receive two dollars every week as an allowance from your father…
Mike [as Franklin]: …James Joyce.
Ben Franklin: …something quite unheard of in my day.
Crow: Fathers?

[Closing shot of Franklin's image on a half-dollar]
Mike: Benjamin Franklin was tried in the Eighth circuit court on stalking charges; in a minute, the results of that trial. [N]

[Shots of a school are shown.]

[On the next piece of background music]
Crow: Okay, let's get funky now.

Mike [as Narrator]: Look, just come here!

[Another piece of background music ends.]
Mike, Crow, Servo: PROGRESS!

[As we watch traditional Puerto Rican folk dancing...]

Crow: Hit me!
Narrator: A band concert under warm, tropical skies.

[The short ends with the shots seen in the opening again.]

Mike [as Narrator]: We would like to apologize to all the people of Puerto Rico that we did not offend.

The Beast of Yucca Flats (movie)

[The opening credits roll over footage of a beaten-down shack in the middle of the desert.]
Mike: Get off my land, you credits!

[The credits reveal the film's "special guest star", Tor Johnson as the titular beast.]
Servo: Ah. Huh, I figured Tor Johnson would play The Butler.
Mike: Tor Johnson as The Beast, that's just smart casting.

[During a chase scene.]
Servo: Beautiful, just beautiful. ... Off-camera excitement the Coleman Francis way.

Servo: Kenneth Branagh's Mary Shelley's Bram Stoker's Wes Craven's Tim Burton's Beast of Yucca Flats. A Francis Ford Coppola film.

Narrator: People travel east, west... north or south.
Servo: And some people just burrow straight down, I guess.

[Over a shot of the mountain...]
Narrator: To get to the top... a man needs an airplane.
Crow [as Narrator]: Or a giant pogo stick.
Narrator: Jump from a plane, land at the top.
Mike [as Narrator]: Or a helicopter would do. Did I say "Flag on the moon" yet?

Servo [as Narrator]: Jaworski, Ron Jaworski. Played quarterback for the Eagles.

[A man is chased by a light plane.]
Servo: Ahh, bit of a ripoff?
Mike: Coleman steals from only the best!

Narrator: A man murdered, a woman's purse.
Servo: A thin plot, endlessly restated.

Crow [as Narrator]: Father Mackenzie, darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there.

Mike: No, don't...

[In one host segment, Crow convinces the others to dress in Blaxploitation-esque outfits.]

Servo [as Farrell]: What's this "Incomplete" crap?
. . .
Farrell: I'd like to talk to you about my nephew, he's ah... he's in a little trouble. You're his teacher, I understand.
April: Well sure, I have a minute. What's his name?
Farrell: [Finally close enough, drops the act.] You broads really think that you can get away with this.
Crow [as April]: Well that's a weird name!

The Amazing Transparent Man

Servo: [dressed as a farmer, while Forrester suggests the SOL gang entertain visitors of Deep 13 with a Llama petting zoo] So you folks wanna touch the Llama, eh? That's right, eh? You can touch him all you want. You can touch him all night til' Hell freezes over! Not me, though; nosiree-bob! I wouldn't touch that smelly old thing. He hasn't been looking too good. Smells kind of funny too- smells really kinda rank! But you can touch him if you want! Ain't no law says you can't! Right, Mikey?
Mike: [staring forward blankly] You people bring matches for Mikey?

Narrator: [on Joe's fiance Helen] She was the kind of girl who'd be happy just being "Mrs. Joe".
Mike: So his name is Joe Joe?

[Helen's daydream progresses to her marriage.]
Narrator: She was a clever dreamer, so she arranged for little Joe to be there to keep her from getting lonesome when Daddy was away.
Crow: Speaking of accidents...

Mike: [noticing a theme] So the main causes of accidents are joy, sex, and old age?

Narrator: [during funeral sequence] Then there was Lenny, who wouldn't be going to college that fall...
Crow: [curtly] ...because he's DUMB!

[Old man George Price closes his house curtains during funeral sequence.]
Tom [as George]: Boring!

[As the reverend stands on his porch looking solemn, a train slowly rolls through the frame.]
Crow [as director]: Hey, we're tryin' to film here!

Mike [as Dr. Ulof]: You want me to make him a sandwich, in other words.

[Dr. Ulof is preparing to make a guinea pig transparent. The guinea pig is secured to a table.]
Servo: If he straps on a rubber glove I'm leaving.
. . .
Crow [as Dr. Ulof]: Have a look a Coco's medical record... Let's see, whooping cough in third grade, mother ate by cat, father flushed down toilet. Everything normal.
. . .
[Ulof is doing sciency stuff with a machine consisting primarily of two metallic globes set together on a long pole.]
Crow: Kind of an abstract sculpture of Jayne Mansfield.

Mike: I don't know what he's doing but it looks naughty!
. . .
Mike: All this just to get a UHF station?

. . .
Servo: Well, sort of a Westerny-Ginghamy-Oriental-Danish-Modernesque-Prairie School sort of thing, huh?

Crow [as Jeff]: Here's how far I've gotten: LA!

[Wilbur the fey angel sprinkles fairy dust on Jeff & Mary's house.]
Crow [as Male Neighbor]: Uh, honey, izzat a gay man on the Johnsons' roof?
Servo [as Female Neighbor]: Should we get a gay man for our roof, honey?

[Mary is trying to dial the phone, but keeps on getting busy signals. Mike and the Bots imitate the opening notes of a song.]
Servo: [singing] Money...
Jeff: Wait a minute, do that again!
Mike [as Jeff]: Yeah, okay. Now rustle your skirt, and flap your arms, and run the vaccuum.
Jeff: Yeah! Yeah! Why not?
Servo [as Jeff]: I'll call someone to write the song!

[The composer husband Jeff finally begins to find his tune.]
Mike: [singing along] Everybody was... kung fu fighting, yeah!

[An invisible Wilbur is playing the piano as the couple dances.]
Crow: Welcome to Shakey's!
[The camera zooms in on his glasses on the piano.]
Mike: [gasps] Elton John was here!

Crow: This would make a great companion movie with Eraserhead.

[As the short ends]
Mike [as announcer]: The following scene contains graphic sexual content.
Servo: Wait a minute... what the hell was that about, anyway?

Night of the Blood Beast (movie)

[Three of the space program's staff head toward the crash site in a flatbed truck.]
Servo: This is back when NASA was family-owned and operated.
Crow [as JFK]: Before this decade is out, we will put a man in a pickup truck, and bring him safely to Mendocino County.
Servo: It's great how they can run the space program, and then sell corn from their flatbed truck.

[The scientists are examining Johnny's corpse.]
Dr. Wyman: No skin discoloration. Temperature feels normal.
Mike [as Wyman]: Well, let's give him more time to die.

Mike: And the Steves are there!

Dr. Wyman: I've never seen an internally damaged body with no sign of rigor mortis after so long.
Mike [as Wyman]: And I love it!

[Dave is fiddling with the radio as Donna watches.]
Dave: Will you go out and ask Steve to come in here a minute?
Servo [as Donna]: Okay. STEEEEEEEEEEEEVE!
Mike [as Dave]: I could have done that...

[Dave hears something.]
Dave: Steve?
Mike: Not everyone is Steve!

[Steve, Julie, and Dr. Wyman are examining Johnny's body. Donna enters.]
Crow [as Donna]: Um, have you guys seen my brush?
Donna: Steve.
Mike [as Julie]: Yes?
Servo [as Dr. Wyman]: Yes?
Crow [as Steve]: Yes?

[After Dave is attacked, the rest of the scientists rush to the scene.]
Servo: And the Steves are there!
Crow: Steve One, you go that way. Steve Two, come with me!

[The older scientist peers under a microscope and is stunned by what he sees.]
Servo: Oh god... I'm pregnant!

[After Dr. Wyman views the strange egg-like alien cells in the body's blood.]
Mike [as Dr. Wyman]: What I'm about to say may sound strange, but I think we should eat this corpse.

[After it's revealed that alien embryos have been implanted inside Major Corcoran's body]
Crow: This is still a better movie than Junior.

[The photographer Donna is staring at a photo she took of the satellite crash.]
Donna: Here's something to complicate things even more.
Crow: I took these upside down!

[Steve enters in from the lab.]
Steve: They're gone.
Crow [as Steve]: My brownies are gone!

Crow: Hard to trust somebody not named Steve.

[The scientists are making their way down a steep hill.]
Crow: Carry me.
Servo: Shut up.
Crow: Carry me!
Servo: Shut up.
Servo: Shut up!
Crow: Unnnnnnh...

The Brute Man


The Chicken of Tomorrow (short)

[Over the short's title screen.]
Crow: The Bill Clinton Story!
Servo: The chicken of tomorrow in a deadly battle against the chicken of today!

[Over a dedication in the opening credits]
Crow: Dedicated to the chickens who lost their lives in the great chicken war.
Mike: Wait a minute! Men and women breeding better poultry? What kind of sick experiment is this?

Narrator: After all these years, whether the chicken or the egg came first is still the subject of a lot of good-natured debate.
Servo: [chuckling] No, it isn't.

[A flock of chickens is hastily gathered around a feeding trough. One of them is actually standing in the trough.]
Servo [as chicken]: Betty, must you sit in dinner?

Narrator: And on large and small farms everywhere, the search for a better chicken goes on.
Servo: There it is! No wait, there!

[As we begin to see what happens at the chicken farm]
Mike [as Narrator]: If you're nice, we'll hook you up to the milking machine!
Narrator: Of course, they have to be hatched before they can grow up, so let's start at the beginning, in the incubator.
Mike [as Narrator]: [muffled] I'm in the incubator now...

[A worker is placing eggs inside a tray.]
Mike [as egg]: Hey, can I go to the bathroom?
Servo [as egg]: No, stay in there.
Mike [as egg]: Oh, come on. Can I go home?
Servo [as egg]: No, the door's locked!
. . .
Crow: I've seen the episode where the eggs come in too fast and she starts putting them in her mouth!

[A worker puts trays inside the incubator.]
Narrator: The temperature is kept at 99 degrees to approximate the body heat of the hens.
Crow [as Narrator]: And this fellow.
. . .
Narrator: This one unit holds 85,000 eggs.
Servo: And one bathroom for all of them.

[Watching footage of a baby chicken forming and hatching.]
Mike: This is gonna be hot, hot, hot!
. . .
Servo: Mork calling Orson...
Crow [as baby chick]: Hey, I'm trying to sleep in here!
. . .
Servo: That is one bloodshot eye.
. . .
Crow: Oh, wait. That's my Silly Putty.
. . .
Crow: [singing] How dry I am— [hiccups]
. . .
Narrator: And finally, the fully developed chick is ready to start breaking out of its shell.
Servo [as Narrator]: Sticks of dynamite are arranged carefully around the perimeter.
. . .
Crow: [singing] Come on down and meet everybod— Oh, sorry.
. . .
Mike: I hate it when people tape their own deliveries.
. . .
Servo: Aren't there supposed to be pantyhose in there?
. . .
Crow [as baby chick]: Oh, what did I do last night?

Servo [as baby chick]: Hey guys, it's God!

Narrator: Sexing the chicks, or separating the males from the females, is a highly specialized trade.
Servo: Yeah, for pervs!
[A farmer inspects one of the chicks]
Crow [as farmer]: Whoa, Milton Berle there...

[A worker is sorting out baby chicks.]
Crow [as worker]: Garage sale. Goodwill. Save for the kids.
[The baby chicks are being thrown into a small box.]
Mike [as baby chick]: It's nice. You know, it's small, the walls are neutral.
Servo [as baby chick]: Hi, Cindy. I'm so glad I'm gonna be in your group. This is gonna be a fun group!
Mike: 40 piece chicken nuggets to go!

Narrator: But wait a minute, you may be saying...
Crow [as Narrator]: Why am I watching this?
Narrator: Can those chicks just out of the shell be sent without food on trips of a day, two days, even three?
Servo: You bet!
Narrator: Indeed they can!
Servo: [surprised] ...Heh, I was right!

[The truck carrying baby chicks is driving very slowly.]
Narrator: Nevertheless, speed is essential and it's here that the motor truck plays a big part in poultry raising.
Crow [as Narrator]: I said, "Speed is ESSENTIAL"!

[As the truck drives as the scene fades.]
Mike: That guy's escaping disguised as a chicken!
[the next scene fades in]
Crow: Chickens!

[Two girls are feeding baby chicks.]
Mike [as girl]: How many are you sitting on?
Crow [as girl]: Dad went a little nuts this Easter.

Narrator: Their immediate destination after leaving the incubator...
Servo [as Narrator]: Broadway!
Narrator: the brooder house.
Mike [as Narrator]: Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Narrator: From now on, their main job in life is to eat and grow.
Servo: [singing] Eat and grow forever...

[The narrator has talked about keeping paper on the floor to cover litter.]
Narrator: After the first few days, the paper can be removed.
Crow: Except for the sports section.

Narrator: The range shelter should be very small, not holding more than a hundred birds.
Mike [as Narrator]: Or migrant workers.
Narrator: The shelter protects them from the sun and gives them a safe place to roost out of the way of rodents.
[Over a shot of chickens frantically fluttering out of a hen house]
Crow, Mike, Servo [as chickens]: RODENTS?! AAAAHHH!!

[Over a shot of chickens eating]
Servo [as chicken]: Heavens, I'm so fat. I just look at chicken feed and I gain weight.
Crow [as chicken]: Does this taste funny to you?

[On spacing range shelters to avoid chickens wandering off]
Narrator: You know how chickens are.
Servo: Yeah, they own everything.

Narrator: Remember the old henhouse?
Servo: The one with the rats?
Narrator: It's now a hotel... a pullet hotel.
Mike: Rooms by the hour.

[Over a group of chickens in the henhouse]
Crow [as chicken]: Open your hymnals to number 325.
. . .
Servo [as chicken]: Everybody! Soylent Green is made from chickens!

[On the trap nest, which is basically a chicken cage that can't be opened on the inside]
Mike: There's no point; it's just funny!

[The Narrator is talking about profitable egg production.]
Narrator: A hen that lays 210 eggs a year and eats 70 pounds of feed is giving you 3 eggs for every pound you feed her.
Mike [as Narrator]: She will live.
Narrator: Keep that one.
Crow [as Narrator]: She's worth millions.
Narrator: But if she eats 70 pounds of feed and lays only 70 eggs a year, you better send her to the market or to your dinner table.
Servo: Or put a warning slip on her desk.

Narrator: ...and this is a good place to point out a few facts about eggs.
Mike [as Narrator]: Stop throwing them at my car!

[As the Narrator talks about cooling eggs and moisture.]
Mike [as Narrator]: So put your mouth under a chicken.
. . .
Crow [as Narrator]: Lick your eggs, or have a friend lick them.

[The narrator explains how the carrier system works]
Narrator: When you've got as many birds to look after as this hatchery, you're pretty receptive to labor-saving devices. And this carrier system is one of the best. It runs the length of the building, and is used to carry feed to the different pens. It can be used also for gathering up manure. Saves a lot of back-breaking work.
Servo [as chicken]: Hey, pal, feed me, then clean up my poops!

[As a worker put seed in a feeding trough]
Crow [as worker]: There's your appetizer, ladies, I'll be back to get your drink order.

[After the narrator has explained the egg collecting process at great length]
Mike: Eggs are complicated; they should cost like a hundred dollars each.

[Showing a comparison of chickens as meat producers]
Mike: It's Goofus and Gallant.
. . .
Crow: This could be your drumstick. This is the number to call.

[Short cuts to a close-up of chicken being sliced]
Crow T. Robot: May I have a piece of my own white meat please?
. . .
[Shot of cooked chicken being sliced very thinly]
Servo: [dripping with sarcasm] Oh, thanks for the generous portion!
. . .
Crow: Yes, chicken sliced to the width of one electron.
Servo: These must be models' portions.
Mike [as server]: This one's for you, Miss Moss, and for you, Miss Turlington...
. . .
Crow: [in Ritzy accent] Yes, it's chicken. Glorious American chicken sliced the American way! (You can carry it in your wallet.)

Narrator: But it's your pocketbook that profits most when you send this bird to market.
[The next scene fades in]
Mike [as Narrator]: We bring you now to market.

[During the auction, as the auctioneer rambles off bids]
Servo: Ah. He's drunk! Look at him.
. . .
[The shadowrama makes it look as if Mike, Servo, and Crow are sitting in the back row of the auction.]
Servo: [to Mike] Put your hand up. Buy a chicken.
Mike: [raises his hand] I want one...

Crow: Alright, come on, sing, sing! Row, row, row— you're not singing!
Narrator: Hundreds of live chickens can be speeded on their way to the dressing plant.
Crow: Dressing plant? Sounds like fun.
Servo: I want a new hat.
[Shot of a gas station]
Narrator: One truck can handle thousands of eggs and take them anywhere there to market.
Mike: Even to the Texaco station.

[As the short ends, a truck seems to move by itself.]
Crow: There's no driver! The chickens are taking over!

The Brute Man (movie)

["Creeper" Hal Moffett sneaks into the apartment of blind Helen Paige, as usual seated at her piano.]
Servo [as Moffett]: Uh... look, Helen. Other girls in the sorority asked me to talk to you about your incessant piano playing.

[A cop opens the door and looks at an empty bedroom]
Crow [as Cop]: [with exaggerated Irish accent] All right, show's over, nothin' fer me to see here. I'll just be about my business then...

[Moffet examines the groceries that were delivered to him.]
Mike [as Moffet]: They forgot my Fruit Brute cereal!

Crow: [observing the number 23 painted above the Creeper's hideout] Hey, it's KTMA!

Mr. Haskins: [holding a grocery list] Where'd this come from?
Jimmy: Somebody stuck it under the door.
Mr. Haskins: [annoyed] Uhh...
Crow [as Jimmy]: I hate customers!
Jimmy: Don't you think it's kinda funny? Sticking a note under the door?
Mr. Haskins: No!
Servo [as Jimmy]: Go to hell!
Mr. Haskins: And don't go trying to make a mystery out of it!
Crow [as Jimmy]: Piss off!

Helen: Hal? Hal? Hal?
Servo [as Helen]: Open the pod bay doors, Hal.

[A newspaper headline reads "Philanthropist laid to rest".]
Servo: Ah, look at that. "Philanthropist laid." It's always the philanthropists... rock stars and philanthropists.

[over a closeup of the Creeper's face]
Crow: Hey fella, why the long face?
Mike: Now, come on...
Crow: [laughing] I'm sorry, I couldn't...
Mike: I begged you not to do that!
Crow: I know...
Servo: That hurts.

Servo: He can't decide if he's a creeper, a peeper, a stalker, a walker, a backbreaker...
Crow: In today's job market, you can't afford not to diversify.

[The Creeper slowly climbs the ladder of a fire escape.]
Crow: Ladies and gentlemen! In the center ring, the Creeper will now attempt the high...thing.
[Mike and Servo both crack up.]

Mike: [annoyed] Why didn't they just call this movie The Creeper? Brute Man, pah...

Mike: A Producer's Releasing Corporation reminding you, don't fear the creeper.

Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell

[Over the title screen]
Mike: Hey, where's the umlaut?
Servo: Oh, these guys are, like, warriors from Hell!

Crow: Well, let's see how long these accents last.

[Deathstalker has a very 80's style haircut]
Mike: Well, they missed on haircuts by roughly twelve hundred years.

[Deathstalker is stick fighting on a log, with a hint of an accent of some sort.]
Crow: Let's see how long THESE accents last!

[Deathstalker's friend who looks like Michael McDonald is getting ready to attack.]
Servo [as Michael McDonald character]: We're taking it to the streets!

[Deathstalker gets shot down by a princess after saying something rude to her.]
Crow: Well, it looks like I'm boxing the clown again tonight!

[A warrior runs at Deathstalker, brandishing his sword wildly.]
Servo [as warrior]: Duh-huh, kill! Huh huh...
[As he lunges, the warrior gets caught in a trap that leaves him dangling by his leg from a tree.]
Crow: Whoa! He set that thing for pheasants; that was lucky!

Troxartis: [haltingly, overacting] This has. Nothingtodowith. Being RICH.
Servo [as Troxartis]: I put the. Beatsinmyown. Script and I'm. Sticking WITH them.

[An eagle flies overhead making a very odd, synthesizer-like squawk.]
Crow: You know, it's a lot of things, but it's not a bird sound.
[Deathstalker looks up at the eagle strangely.]
Servo [as Deathstalker]: I just heard an eagle meow!

[Deathstalker gets up from Khorsa and Marinda's potatoes-only feast inside their rough house.]
Khorsa: You sleep in the barn!
Servo [as Deathstalker]: This isn't the barn?

Servo [as Khorsa]: [addressing the Warriors from Hell] Excuse me, Mr. Moose?
Mike [as the Warriors from Hell]: We're bats, ma'am. Squeak. Squeak. Squeak.

[The Warriors from Hell burst through the door of Khorsa's cabin.]
Crow: [singing] We're the knights of the round table!

[Deathstalker approaches a horse and throws a shaggy blue-gray object over its back.]
Mike: Oh no, he made a saddle out of Grover!

[Deathstalker sneaks around Troxartis' castle, encountering few obstacles along the way.]
Mike: This movie is like playing Doom when there's no monsters or opponents.

Deathstalker: ...Now here he is, drinking wine and chasing women.
Mike: Spo-dee o-dee.

Mike: This is one of the most ambitiously bad movies we have ever done.

[A large mob of people (who have never been seen before this point in in the movie) attack Troxartis' castle; several of them scurry up a ladder over the top of the wall.]
Mike [as attacker]: Remember, top rung not to be used as a step!
Crow [as attacker]: Who are we?!

[Deathstalker randomly appears outside the tower window to confront Troxartis.]
Mike: What the— Uh? Th— Oh... [as Troxartis] You clever bastard. So the editor's working with you!

[After the climactic battle, Marinda lies dying in Deathstalker's arms.]
Marinda: I love you!
Servo: Quick! Jam a potato in the wound!
Crow [as Marinda]: You were my first... tuber.

[Deathstalker's friend who looks like Michael McDonald is comforting him after losing Marinda.]
Servo [as Michael McDonald character]: She came from somewhere back in your long ago.
Mike [as Deathstalker]: Look, just shut up.

Crow [as army]: We're still fighting bravely for our vague goal!

[That night, Marinda's burial-shrouded body lies near a pyre.]
Crow: Wrapped in foil, she was buried in coals on the beach.
. . .
[Deathstalker tenderly closes the shroud over Marinda's face.]
Servo [as Deathstalker]: [sobbing] Make sure you crimp the foil good... poke her with a fork so she doesn't explode.
. . .
Mike [as Deathstalker]: [sobbing] Well... I have to say... she was all-righta. [N]

[A man gives Deathstalker a sympathetic look after Marinda has died]
Mike [as the man]: Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

[Deathstalker leaves the kingdom, and everyone is cheering.]
Mike [as a member of the crowd]: He's leaving! Our long national nightmare is over!

The Incredible Melting Man

[On the SOL, Mike has been hit in the face by a crazy pitch from Servo.]
Crow: Mike, now say "I was born on a pirate ship."
Mike: I was born on a pile of... Hey!

[As Mike and the Bots enter the theater, the logo for American International Pictures (a circle with shapes inside that are supposed to represent the letters "a" and "i" together) appears.]
Mike: [chuckling] "Round Guy With Surfboard" International.

[Over the movie's title screen]
Mike: The George Hamilton Story.

[Less than a minute after liftoff, one of the astronauts announces "Saturn clear."]
Crow: Boy, they got to Saturn fast!
Mike: It's all freeways now.

Astronaut: I.M.U., ready to launch.
Crow: You are not me, stop saying that!

[Dr. Ted Nelson tells his coworker Dr. Loring about his wife's pregnancy.]
Loring: How many weeks is she?
Ted Nelson: Fourteen.
Servo [as Loring]: A little young to be pregnant, isn't she?
. . .
[The entire building is empty except for Nelson and Loring]
Servo [as Loring]: So when do you think the people who work here are coming back?

[Dr. Nelson is in his office with the African-American Dr. Loring, and is on the phone with General Perry.]
General Perry: How's it looking?
Ted Nelson: Not too good.
Servo [as Nelson]: [whispering] There's a black guy in my office!
. . .
[Dr. Nelson asks General Perry when he expects to arrive.]
General Perry: About 1600 hours... and I hope to hell you've found him by then.
Mike: 1600 hours? So, like five months from now?

[Ted Nelson is making soup, and grabs the hot part of the pot by mistake.]
Ted Nelson: AADGKA!
Servo: Ah, aadgka, of course.

[Judy is preparing Ted's soup.]
Servo [as Ted]: [sulkily] General wants to go find the aadgjka melting man.
Ted Nelson: Steve escaped.
Judy Nelson: Oh God.
Mike [as Judy]: Aadgka?
Judy Nelson: What're you gonna do?
Crow [as Ted]: Well, first I've gotta lose a little weight.[N]
Ted Nelson: Uh... did you get some crackers? I told you yesterday that we needed some crackers.
Judy Nelson: Oh, I forgot. I knew there was something...
Servo [as Judy]: [annoyed with herself] Aadgka.
Judy Nelson: Y'know there's uh, there's a pad right by the phone y'know, you could write it down too.
[She brings over his soup.]
Mike: Y'know they made a mistake and they just went home with the actors.
[Crow laughs over Judy asking about Steve.]
Ted Nelson: [ignoring the question] So, we don't have any crackers?
Judy Nelson: Ted. Steve?
Crow: Raging Bull.
Ted Nelson: Steve?
Servo [as Ted]: Steve had crackers!
Ted Nelson: I've got to go out and find Steve.
Judy Nelson: Why you?
Ted Nelson: Because nobody else is supposed to know.
Crow [as Ted]: Rye crisps, Sociables, anything?!

[General Perry is helping himself to the Nelsons' leftovers in their kitchen.]
Mike: This man is a brilliant tactician.

[The movie keeps cutting back to Judy asleep in her bed.]
Mike: Couldn't they just put "ibid." up on the screen?

Mike: You guys know, is there a credible melting man?

[The security guard shoots Ted on the spot.]
Crow: [as the melting man] Whoa! Not Ted Nelson! No relation to Ted Nelson here!

[All the principal characters are dead or a melted pile of glop, but the film continues nonetheless.]
Servo: What could there possibly be to wrap up? Everybody's dead!
Mike: Well now the movie has to mop up after itself.

[A black janitor puts Steve West's melted remains into a garbage can.]
Servo: [as janitor] I'll never understand white people...
. . .
Crow: [almost cracking up] So, how many monster movies end with a janitor scooping the monster into a garbage can?

[At the film's end, another rocket launches into space.]
Mike: So, they learned nothing.
Servo: Yep.
Crow: Well, I learned somethin', Mike: I learned that doctors don't care.
Servo: I learned that southern California can get cold enough for a snorkel jacket.
Mike: [reading the credit for Burr DeBenning] I learned never to name a child "Burr".
Crow: Mike, I've written a short sketch about Burr DeBenning. Ahem... "Hi, what's your name?" "Burr." "Oh here, take my coat. Now what's your name?" "Burr!" Heh-heh... ha...
Mike: Very good.
Crow: I kill me.
Servo: Well, I also learned never to scream "I'm Ted Nelson" to a security guard.
Mike: I learned that half-eaten turkey legs make very tepid ironic statements.
Crow: We learned it's good to have Saltines around your house.
Servo: I learned that sheriffs are full of pyrotechnics.
[Mike notices a credit for Jonathan Demme on the screen.]
Mike: Jonathan Demme?! Ah, who cares. Anyway?
Servo: Uh, once again, we learned that NASA is staffed by two or three people, tops.
Crow: And they hire civilian doctors to head up their recovery program.
Servo: What else, what else? ...Oh, I learned that some nurses can't find properly fitting uniforms. You?
Mike: Musta learned something else... Oh, we learned some cats can open the refrigerator, get the milk, bring the milk into the middle of the kitchen, throw it up in the air, drop it on the floor, shatter it all over the place.
Servo: Good lesson.
Crow: Well, we also learned that if you're a melting man, you can have a short but successful career as a sprinter.
Servo: Me, I learned that I should never marry a passive, immobile doctor named Ted Nelson who doesn't ever do anything. And I certainly shouldn't have his baby.
Mike: I think that's very sound. Oh, you know what? I learned that I can use the word "Aadgka!" as an expletive, if necessary.
Servo: Aadgka!
Crow: I learned that if you're gonna have a general over for dinner, you better have turkey legs and beer on hand.
Servo: Well, we learned that lights and lighting really aren't necessary to make a film these days.
Mike: And neither are actors.
Servo: Well, I think I learned that I shouldn't go to Saturn unless I have the proper protective gear.
[Mike gets up from his seat and stretches.]
Crow: Yep, yep. Right now I'm learnin' that even though this movie is about eighty minutes long, it feels like Berlin Alexanderplatz.
Servo: I also learned that some sheriffs aren't married. Did you know that?
Mike: [sitting down] Yes I did. I learned it was impossible to look good in the '70s.
Crow: I learned that even if you chop a monster's arm off, it'll only make him stronger and more powerful.
Servo: Yep. And I learned that you can just fill in crucial elements of the plot whenever it's convenient. I did not know that.
Mike: We've learned that if you're put in charge of an urgent, top secret government project, it really doesn't matter if you do anything.
Crow: Yah, yup. And we learned that sometimes, people can abuse spirit gum and latex.
Mike: Oh, I hear ya.

Escape 2000

[As the gang enters the theater, the famous Samuel Goldwyn logo appears.]
Mike: Hey, why is John Madden signing Samuel Goldwyn's signature?
Crow: Samuel Goldwyn, Father of the Constitution.

[As the film starts, squads of Stormtrooper-like men roughly drag people out of homes. In the background, a loudspeaker continually blares]
Loudspeaker: You are ordered to leave the Bronx! I repeat, you are ordered to leave the Bronx!
[A man is thrown out a window]
Mike [as Man]: I forgot my luggage...!
Loudspeaker: This area has been declared uninhabitable, and destined for demolition! Leave now, and leave peacefully!
[The same man is roughly grabbed and thrown into the street]
Crow [as Man]: Okay, you convinced me!
Loudspeaker: You have nothing to fear! The government guarantees to relocate all of you in comfortable, up-to-date, alternative accommodations!
[The man, and others like him, are thrown against a wall and collapse, cringing.]
Mike: [snickers]
Servo: Mmm-hmm.
Loudspeaker: Leave the Bronx!
Servo [as Loudspeaker]: Even though this is Italy, leave the Bronx!
Loudspeaker: I repeat, you are ordered to leave the Bronx!
Mike [as Loudspeaker]: You, too, Henry Silva.
Loudspeaker: The area has been declared uninhabitable and destined for demolition!
Crow [as Loudspeaker]: Therefore, we suggest you—
All [as Loudspeaker]: Leave the Bronx!
Loudspeaker: ...leave peacefully! You have nothing to fear! The government guarantees to relocate all of you in comfortable...
Servo: So leave the Bronx.
Mike: Just leave the Bronx.
[The loudspeaker fades out as we see a van with a radio antenna.]
Servo [as loudspeaker on van]: Vote Johnson! Vote Johnson!
. . .
Mike: Hey, I had my radio on. I didn't hear... are we supposed to leave the Bronx?

Loudspeaker: Isolate area P-6.
Crow: And we have a Bingo! Hold your cards, please.

[Several jumpsuit-clad stormtroopers run out of building about to be demolished.]
Crow [as Trooper]: [terrified] Gary saw a silverfish! Aaaahh!

[As a team of stormtroopers raid a building, one stands nearby, next to a sign.]
Servo [as Stormtrooper]: Hang on Earl, I gotta read this sign here: "Leave the Bronx". Well, gee.

[The Disinfesters, wearing shiny, reflective uniforms, move through a gutted building.]
Crow [as Disinfester]: I gotta tell you, looks like everybody's left the Bronx, Ted.
Servo: Pretty much.
Mike: We gratefully acknowledge the Reynold's Wrap corporation for donating the costumes.
[They come across a homeless man]
Mike [as Bum]: Well, I s'pose I better leave the Bronx.
[He looks up at the Disinfesters]
Crow [as Bum]: I thought it was a suggestion!
[The troopers close in on him]
Servo: When Habitat for Humanity cracks down!
Bum: Hey, wait a minute, you guys! Look, OK, I'll leave!
Disinfester: You should have left earlier. Eliminate!
Mike: Wow, the Orkin Men have snapped!

[A man and a woman are heard yelling at each other in their apartment]
Servo: They're rehearsing a David Mamet play in there.

[Reporter Moon Grey tries to expose Clark's plot.]
Crow: A fascist Italian? Come on!!

Moon Grey: [being dragged from a press conference] ...and the GC Corporation sucks!
[The other reporters whirl around towards President Clark]
Mike [as Reporter]: Is that true? Do you suck?

[The Bronx's residents are being led into vans marked "Desinfestation Annihilation Squad"]
Crow: [chuckles] I think they blew their cover here!

[Trash escapes from his parents' apartment only to be almost blown up in a stairwell.]
Crow [as Trash]: D'oh, the Bronx is something which I should have left!

[A heavy steel ladder hangs dangerously above an unconscious Trash]
Servo: Ah. The ladder of Damocles.
Crow: Yeah, so far his greatest adversary is a ladder.

President Clark: So... You let them both get away... The girl and that delinquent Trash.
Wrangler: [chuckles] I don't think so. They're both... under... [points at random place in Bronx model] ...there! [points somewhere else] ...or maybe there!
Servo: ...right there!
Wrangler: But somewhere there!
[Mike and the 'bots laugh.]
President Clark: Maybe you intend to go down... to convince them... to waste themselves with some dynamite?
Wrangler: [chuckles] I don't think so.
Crow: You guys didn't rehearse, did you?

[A mine goes off underneath two of President Clark's bodyguards]
Mike [as Bodyguard]: Oh what did you step in!

[Disinfesters jump out of a van.]
Servo [as Disinfester]: Hi! Kill us!
[They get shot.]
Servo [as Disinfester]: Thank you!

[As Trash blows up a van]
Mike [as DJ]: Alright, we're here in the KROQ Supervan giving out a— [The van explodes. Crow screams.]
Servo [as Trash]: Hey, rats. That was my van!

[As the film ends, a crane shot shows dozens of bodies sprawled around burning ruins.]
Mike: Cleanup in Borough Five!


[The credits display: "Laserblast".]
Crow: Terrible name for laser eye surgery… scares away the customers.

[A mutated man tries to hide from a spaceship, with a laser cannon attached to his arm.]
Servo [as Elmer Fudd]: I'm hunting spacecwaft...hehehehehehe.
. . .
[A closeup of the man reveals his gaunt complexion and the disc-shaped apparatus on top of the laser cannon on his arm.]
Mike: Edward CDplayerhands.

[A pan shot reveals a stop motion alien emerging from a spacecraft.]
Mike: Oh great, E.T. calls, we come, and he's not here.

[After a scene with the aliens, followed by an unrelated scene with Billy's mother leaving for Acapulco, the film fades to another seemingly unrelated shot of a van driving along the road.]
Mike: Well, now on to movie three!

[Twenty minutes into the movie, and nothing important has happened. Billy is hanging around a gas station.]
Servo: So, let's recap the movie so far: somebody went to Acapulco, and somebody almost bought gas.

[Shortly after finding a laser cannon in the desert, Billy begins hopping around oddly and pretending to blow stuff up.]
Billy: Pow! Pa-pow!
Servo: After all that, it's "pa-pa-pow".
Mike: Once you're over the age of 11, you should not say "pow".
[Billy continues to prance about the desert with the laser cannon on his arm, moving rather daintily.]
Servo: I think he's doing Frampton Comes Alive.
Mike: ...So, it's a thing that makes you waltz.
Crow: Won't he be surprised to learn that it doesn't go "pow" but "fffwissshh"!

[Billy gleefully blasts away at shrubs and sand with said cannon.]
Mike [as Billy]: Yeah... I think you are gonna detail my van for seventy-five dollars!

[Kathy sits by Billy's van, waiting for Billy to arrive.]
Mike: ...So we're watching someone waiting for someone.
Servo: There's a point where it stops being a movie!

Kathy: Gee, Billy...if only you were more ordinary.
Mike: More ordinary? Man, he'd have to work at that.

[A cake is brought out at the pool party, causing an overexcited reaction from the partygoers]
Crow: Teens love their cake pool party!

[At a pool party, Chuck is serving hot dogs to a good-looking girl in a bikini.]
Chuck: Whoa, mama. Wouldn't Chuck like to give you his red hot frank.
Girl: From what I hear, Chucky, it ain't so hot.
Crow [as Chuck]: She undercut the subtle nuance of my wiener joke!
. . .
[Chuck pushes the girl into the pool.]
Mike [as Chuck]: There! I think I've taught you not to rebuff my wiener innuendo!

[Billy's and girlfriend Kathy's hands are shown roving over each other's exposed skin in an intimate moment between the two while Mike and the 'bots express their repulsion.]
Crow: This movie means two things to me: sheet cake and back fat!

[As the ending credits roll, Mike leafs through a copy of Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide.]
Mike: OK, let's look in Maltin's book, uh he gave this two-and-a-half stars... ooh, My Favorite Year barely edges it out with three stars.
Crow: Huh.
Servo: Look here, Hannah and her Sisters is superior only by one star.
Mike: Oh wow.
Crow: [watching the film] Oh great, now a tire fire starts just off camera!
[Servo coughs. Mike turns a page.]
Mike: OK. Umm, ah, look, hey—Leonard Maltin gave the same two-and-a-half stars to My Dinner With Andre.
Crow: Uhh—
Servo: [disgusted] Name of the Rose... this is a better film than Name of the Rose! It only got two stars!
Crow: Being There, two stars.
Mike: Uh, Lucas Tanner the movie was directed by Richard Donner... I just thought I'd point that out.
Servo: Oh. Good.
Mike: Lemme see here...
Crow: [reading the credits] Y'mean, y'mean to tell me that Ron Masak and Eddie Deezen get billing over Roddy McDowall?
Servo: Look Mike, Birdman of Alcatraz, three stars. Marginally better than Laserblast.
Crow: [still reading the credits] They spelled Roddy McDowall's name wrong...
Servo: [leaning in] What else you got?
Mike: Oh, here we go, Full Metal Jacket, three stars.
Crow: Hm?
Servo: Shame, isn't it.
Mike: Oh, hey, Seven Samurai, two stars.
Crow: [incredulous] What?!
Mike: I'm kidding.
Crow: Oh.
Servo: I hope so.
Mike: According to this, A Fish Called Wanda was as good a film as Laserblast.
Crow: [dismissive] D'oh...
Servo: Broadcast News, Witness, three stars—barely superior to Laserblast.
Mike: Mm-hm.
Crow: Same for Diner.
Mike: Yeah, hm. Oh, here we go—this was a better movie than Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Crow: Well, that's possible...
Servo: And the same caliber as Last Crusade—two-and-a-half stars.
Mike: Oh. And, uh, and yet: Blame It On the Bellboy... four stars.
Servo: [unbelieving] Where?
Crow: [incredulous] What?
Mike: No, I'm kidding.
Servo: Oh, you... You... jeez...
Mike: So, Kim Milford's greasy, pop-eyed performance was every bit as good as F. Murray Abraham's tortured performance as Salieri in Amadeus.
Crow: According to Leonard Maltin, yes, Mike.
Servo: Bagdad Café, brilliant subtle comedy—no better than Laserblast.
Mike: Here's where it gets hard—Harry and the Hendersons is every bit as good as Laserblast.
Crow: Carson McCullers' classic The Heart is a Lonely Hunter—no better than Laserblast.
[Servo notices Mike is hiding something and tries to read it.]
Mike: [reluctant] No, no—
Servo: Uhp, John Schlesinger's Oscar-winning thriller Marathon Man—on par with Laserblast, two-and-a-half stars.
Mike: Right, so Laurence Olivier's chilling performance as Szell, the White Angel, no better than the butt-faced sheriff in Laserblast.
Crow: Again, according to Leonard Maltin, yes, Mike.
Mike: OK, ah—
Servo: Ah, look here, look here, Outlaw Josey Wales AND Unforgiven! Oscar-winner. Quintessential Westerns, Eastwood at his finest. However, I think you know where we're headed with this, Mike.
Mike: Uh, yeah...
Servo, Mike: Same as Laserblast
Servo: Two-and-a-half stars.
Mike: Oh, here we go, here's a couple more. Sophie's Choice
Servo: Uh huh.
Mike: Uh... here's one, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Servo: No!
Mike: The Great Santini
Servo: Oh, I can't believe that!
Mike: All two-and-a-half stars.
Servo: Two-and-a-half stars.
Mike: The same quality.
Crow: Also known as "Ace", by the way.
Mike: Yes, "Ace".
Servo: [as they leave] Peers to Laserblast.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (This Island Earth)

[The film begins with a flyby of the Satellite of Love, orbiting over Earth. We then cut to Mike finishing up his daily running exercise. Gypsy, who's holding a towel, watches Mike as he finally finishes his morning routine and goes for a human-scale sized hamster water feeding canister.]
Gypsy: Mornin', Mike!
Mike: [exhausted] Oh, morning, Gypsy! What have you got for me? [drinks water from the human-scale sized hamster water feeding canister nozzle]
Gypsy: Oxygen-nitrogen mixes within required standards. We are currently at low-orbit over Southern Madagascar, and that wonderful smell, there's a lamb roast I have in the oven.
Mike: [taking the towel from Gypsy and dries his sweat off from his face] And sweet yams?
Gypsy: Affirmative! Oh, and I compiled today's weather service reports! [Mike and Gypsy stroll over to the main desk] Here's a hard-copy! [gives a hard-copy version of the satellite's daily newspaper to Mike, which whom he starts reading] The Cubs lost again.
Servo: [comes out of one of the desk's pothole hatches] Dum-da-dum-dum-dum.... oh, why, hello Mike! Everything working fine on the ol' Satellite of Love, today? Hm? No dangerous problems or horrible mishaps in sight? Hm?
Mike: No, Tom. Everything appears nominal.
Servo: Ah, nominal! Good! Good! So, I guess that means you're not worrying about what that rhythmic pounding might be?
Mike: [listens to the sound/noise] Yeah, what is that?
Servo: Yeah, what is that, hm? I'm a highly sophisicated robot, Mike, and I'm telling you, this is not something you should be hearing. Something's causing this, Mike. Hm? Now, let's think... I'm here, you're here, Gypsy's here....
Mike: Okay, Tom. Where's Crow?
Servo: Where's Crow? Huh. I'm not supposed to say anything, but I did see the little moron headed towards the basement with a pickaxe in his hand!
Mike: [Turning to Gypsy, alerted] Gypsy, go to Condition Yellow! We gotta stop him!
Gypsy: Roger! [familiar Commercial Sign alarm is active]

[We cut to Crow in the S.O.L.'s maintenance basement bay, inevitably making yet another escape attempt by digging his way through the hull with a pickaxe.]
Crow: [singing It's a Long Way to Tipperary] It's a long way to tipperary... [*Thunk!*] To the sweetest girl I know...! [*Thunk!*] Goodbye to Noah Beery... [*Thunk!*] Hello Harold LLOOOOOOYD...! [*Thunk!*]
Mike: [O.S.] Crow!
Crow: Huh?
Mike: Crow, listen, you gotta stop!
Crow: Oh! Hi, Mike! I found a perfect spot! Once I break through this wall, we'll tunnel our way right back to Earth! [*Thunk!*]
Servo: [hovering down] Crow, you big dope! You can't tunnel through space!
Crow: Come, come, boys! We must confound Jerry at every turn! [*Thunk!*] [continues singing]
Mike: [quickly rushes to Crow] Crow, no! You'll breach the hull!
[Crow breaches the satellite's hull as he tries to escape, causing the air to be sucked out.]
Mike: [quickly rushing to something to hang onto for dear life] WOAAAH! CROOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!
Crow: Woah, I didn't expect this!
Servo: Attaining.... Maximum RPM.... Adjust pitch and yaw thrusters..... Stabilize! There, that should do it— [gets sucked towards hole] WOOOAAAAAAAAAAH!!!
[Mike quickly catches Servo, screaming for dear life, by the hand.]
Crow: Wow, this is confusing! Uh, Mike, you wanna hand me my calculations?
[A wad of paper is blown across the bay and hits Crow in the face.]
Crow: Thank you! Wow, look at that: "Breach Hull - All Die"! Even had it underlined! Hah!
[Mike is still holding on to the screaming Servo for his dear life.]
[Servo is pulled out of Mike's hand and straight towards the hole.]
Mike: SERVO!
[Servo ends up landing right-side up on the hole with his hoverskirt.]
Mike: [impressed and satisfied] Attaboy, Servo!
Crow: I won't do that again!
. . .
Servo: Hey, I'm experiencing a sensation altogether new to me, and frankly... I LOVE IT!
Mike: Now, Crow, I told you: no more escape attempts.
Crow: Well believe me Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid, and... I went ahead anyway.
Mike: Now, here you go. [pulls Servo off the hole, replacing him wth Crow's helmet that he removed earlier]
Servo: [upsettingly] Aw, darn!
[*Ding! Ding! DING! DING!*]
Gypsy: It's time! Dr. F is calling for you!

[We cut to see Dr. Forrester on the Hexfield Viewscreen, looking through a strand of film reel. Mike and the 'bots wheel in.]
Dr. Forrester: Ah! Mike! Robots! I'm feeling particularly evil, because today's experiment is a stinky, cinematic suppository called This Island Earth! You may all just bow down before me after this stink-burger! Say, come to think about it, I don't believe you bowed down before me, recently!
Mike: Uh, sure, we have! Last week!
Dr. Forrester: No, no, no. I think that was more of a curtsy of a bow. So, why won't we all just bow down... NOW? [cuts off life support systems]
Mike: Now, see, I don't see the reason why you make us— [starts choking]
[Mike and the 'bots start conforming to Dr. Forrester.]
. . .
Crow: [panicking] Bowing, sir!
Servo: [*Dialogue speed not understandable*]
[Pleased, Dr. Forrester restores life support systems. Mike and the 'bots get up from the floor.]
Mike: Okay, Dr. Forrester! Geez!
Crow: What a dickweed!
Dr. Forrester: Well, Now that we have our little fun, prepare yourself for... oh, but before I start the experiment, uh, did you... y'know... go?
Mike, Crow, Servo: [dejected] Yes...
Dr. Forrester: Because I don't want to have to stop the movie before... y'know...
Mike, Crow, Servo: You won't...
Dr. Forrester: Then, prepare yourself for This Island Earth! [pulls a lever]
[*Movie Sign Alarm*]
Mike: Oh! We got MOVIE SIGN!
[Mike and the 'Bots rush to the auditorium, screaming along the way, while the camera treks down through the famous Countdown Door Hallway that leads to the auditorium.]
[Dr. Forrester]: [as Mike and the others call out for the Metalunian they were talking with to come back, and Forrester appears on-screen] ...Wait, help! Auntie Em, Auntie Em! Surprise, like who doesn't have an Interocitor, you collective heads of knuckle? Now get back in the theater, you ninny-hammers! And remember: I know who you are, and I saw what you did. Now scat! [zaps them with lasers from the Interocitor, while laughing evilly] I am the God... I'm the God!!

This Island Earth (movie)

[Universal-International credit appears on screen, as well as a globe-like Earth.]
Crow: [as they enter] It's the nicest weather Earth has ever had!
Mike: Notice how big Japan is?

Crow: Oh, who sneezed on the credits?

[Universal-International credit appears on screen]
Mike: Isn't the fact that it's Universal make it International?

["This Island Earth" appears on the screen]
Servo: This Island Earth can be yours if The Price is Right!

[during the opening credits]

Servo: Hey, there's Taurus the bull!
Mike: And over there's the Constellation Feces.
Crow: Oh, look. Orion is bankrupt.

Servo: When in California, be sure to visit beautiful...
[The words "Washington, D.C." appear on screen]
Servo: ...oh.
Crow: [as golf announcer] It's a long, Par 5 on the way to the nation's capital.
Mike: Washingtonland, the new Disney theme park!

[The camera pans over a shot of a city with a baseball field being in the middle of the shot.]
Crow: Hey! You can see the Cubs losing!

[The camera pans over a shot of a snow-capped mountain range.]
Servo: Oh jeez, there's soccer teams laying all over the place!

[Meacham's plane, engines out, is coasting in to a crash landing when it is suddenly suffused with a mysterious green glow.]
Mike [as Meacham]: Suddenly I have a refreshing mint flavor.
Servo: Early LSD tests in the Air Force.

[Joe running towards the Jeep]
Crow: Into the Weenie Mobile! WEENIE MAN AWAY!

[In the lab, through a viewport, we see a rectangular metal slab suspended above a squat, boxy metal coil.]
Mike: Oh, yeah. This is when science didn't have to have any specific purpose.
Dr. Meacham: Lowering the cylinder.
Servo [as Meacham]: Inserting the breakfast pastry.
Crow [as Narrator]: [darkly] The secret government Eggo project.
Servo [as Meacham]: Contact Dr. Jemima!
Mike [as Meacham]: God, I love the blueberry ones best.
[Meacham flips a switch. The toaster-like coil starts to red with heat, and we hear a pinging sound.]
Dr. Meacham: Increase the rate of reaction.
Servo [as Meacham]: Start warming the syrup!
Mike [as Meacham]: Yum!
[Cal and Joe play with some knobs and dials. The "toaster" emits loud grinding noises.]
Dr. Meacham: Check rate of radioactive decay.
Crow [as Meacham]: Increase the Flash Gordon noises and put more science stuff around.[N]
. . .
[At the end of the experiment, the toaster object blows up.]
Mike [as Meacham/Morrison]: Oh, my God! My waffle! Oh, the humanity!
[A loud beeping noise follows post-explosion.]
Mike: Fries are up!

Joe: Here's something my wife could use around the house.
Crow: A man?

Meacham: This isn't paper. It's some sort of metal.
Crow [as Joe]: No, sir. That's paper!

[Dr. Meacham and Joe have just upacked the parts to the Interocitor.]
Servo: But before unpacking – D'OH!

Meacham: There are 2,486 parts.
[Joe is stepping around the spread out Interocitor parts. Crow makes a loud crunching sound.]
Crow [as Joe]: Uh, 485, sir!
[As Joe walks around the parts, Crow keeps making crunching noises with every step Joe takes.]

Joe: Where do we start?
Meacham: Right here. [points towards strange symbol on blueprint.]
Mike [as Meacham]: At Goofy Clown Face!

Joe: You know what my kids would say...
Servo: [interrupting] "You're not my real father!"
Joe: "Dig this crazy, mixed-up plumbing!"
Meacham: Plug it in, Joe.
Mike: Doesn't even have any kids. Poor, deluded Joe.

Exeter: My name is Exeter.
Mike [as Exeter]: Doug Exeter.

Exeter: Stand aside, please. You too, Dr. Wilson.
Servo [as Exeter]: No, farther towards the killzone, please!
Crow [as Exeter]: Yeah, God I'm good!
[Meacham notices the plug for the Interocetor.]
Servo [as Meacham]: Dear God, I left the iron plugged in!
[Meacham rushes over to unplug the Interocetor, which starts sparking, causing him to lose balance. Joe rushes over to help him up.]
Crow [as Joe]: Oh, come here, you big, dumb dope!
[The Interocetor is now ablaze.]
Servo: Quick, get the baking soda!
Mike: Boy, the landlady's going to be mad!
Servo [as landlady]: [imitates knocking noise] Are you boys cooking up there?!
Mike: No!
Servo [as landlady]: Are you building an Interocetor?!
Mike: [casually] NO!

[Meacham pushes a microphone-like Geiger counter probe toward the interocitor wreckage.]
Mike [as Meacham]: Now that you've exploded, any words for our listeners?

[Brack enters the scene]
Mike: Hey, Charlie Rich!
Crow: He goes through a lot of Brylcreem.
[Brack enters the elevator, looking sternly at Meacham and Adams.]
Crow [as Adams]: Don't mention his head.

Exeter: Dr. Meacham! Good morning!
Meacham: Good morning.
Exeter: Please, come in. Both of you.
Servo [as Exeter]: We're glad you could join us at the Buddy Ebsen society!

Meacham: What I want to know is...
Exeter: [interrupting] Who we are.... why we're here.
Servo [as Exeter]: And why do I have a picture of a burger on the wall?

Adams: Be careful. Exeter could flatter you to death.
Exeter: The truth is never flattering, Dr. Adams.
Servo [as Exeter]: You fine, foxy lady!

Steve Carlson: Dr. Adams.
Ruth: Yes, Steve?
Mike [as Carlson]: What's this "and the rest" crap?

[Exeter and his "team" are having an elegant dinner, complete with music by Mozart.]
Meacham: What do you think of Mr. Mozart, Exeter?
Exeter: I'm afraid I don't know the gent—
Servo [as Exeter]: I'm not an alien!
Exeter: My mind must have been wandering. Your composer, of course.
Meacham: Our composer? He belongs to the world.
Exeter: Yes, indeed.
Mike [as Exeter]: I'm not an alien.
. . .
Exeter: We won't start cracking the whip on Meacham until tomorrow.
Servo [as Exeter]: Then I ram my ovipositor down your throat and lay my eggs in your chest — but I'm not an alien!

[Meacham, Adams, and Carlson looking at sketches of Exeter and Brack.]
Carlson: Did you notice the peculiar indentations in both of their foreheads?
Servo: [sarcastically] NO!!!

Mike: So, they're going to escape under the cover of afternoon in the biggest car in the county?

[Meacham, Adams, and Carlson dive down a road at high speeds.]
Crow: Ness and his men speed towards Capone's hideout!

[Three Metalunans are seen in the conversion tubes.]
Crow: Ladies and gentlemen, A Flock of Seagulls.

[On board Exeter's spaceship, Cal and Ruth stand on a "conversion" platform.]
Exeter: Place your hands above the rails.
[We hear the sound of static as the scientists' hands are suddenly pulled onto the rails.]
Exeter: They're magnetized.
Mike [as Exeter]: And if your hands were metal, that would mean something.

Exeter: That's enough. Normal view.
Mike, Servo, and Crow: [singing in time with the dramatic music] Nor-mal view. Nor-mal view! Nor-mal view! NOR-MAL VIEWWWWWW!

[We get our first look at Metaluna from orbit – and it's a burned-out, bombed-out husk of a planet.]
Servo: What kind of shithole planet is this?!?

Servo [as Exeter]: I LOVE YOU!
Meacham: [picks up boulder] Stand back, Exeter!
Exeter: Meacham, please! You have to believe me!
Mike [as Exeter]: You're holding a Mutant turd!

Exeter: [to the Mutant] Stand back. I command you, STAND BACK!
Crow [as Exeter]: Well, that went well. I can't possibly think of what could go...
[The Mutant attacks Exeter, Crow mimicks screams of pain.]

[Meacham starts beating on the Mutant's exposed brain.]

Crow [as Ruth]: Oh, Carl.
Servo [as Meacham]: Uh, Cal.
Crow [as Ruth]: ... oh, Cal.
Ruth: Home...
Meacham: Thank God it's still here.
Crow: And Friday!

Mike: [talking about the Puppet Wrangler credit for Mystery Science Theater 3000] "Puppet Wranglers"? There weren't any puppets in this movie!

[The name "Rando Schmook" appears in the credits.]

Servo: Watch Rando the Great construct sets with his very mind!
Crow [as Rando]: Now, we've never met before, have we?

[The name "Julie Walker" appears.]
Crow: Julie Walker: Texas Ranger.

[Credit for Eastman Film.]
Servo: Eastman: He came out of the east to do battle with the Amazing Rando!

[Credits end with "all rights reserved".]
Mike: All rights are reserved, Callahan!
Crow [as Clint Eastwood]: Oh yeah? Well, what about the rights of that little girl?

Season 8


Revenge of the Creature

[After Professor Bobo explains to Mike and the Bots that they are in the future, human civilization has perished and apes rule the world]
Mike [as George Taylor]: A planet where apes evolved from men?
Professor Bobo: Well, it's maybe a little more complicated than that but, that is the rough outline, yes.
Mike [as George Taylor]: You did it! You finally did it!
Professor Bobo: [apathetic] "...Damn us all to Hell". Yes, yes.
Mike [as George Taylor]: It's a madhouse! A...
Professor Bobo: ...madhouse. I know![N]

[The Gill Man makes his somewhat grand appearance, swimming through the lagoon.]
Mike [as The Gill Man]: [In time with the dramatic music] Here I am! I'm the Creature!
Servo: Boy, Esther Williams didn't age well.

[The intrepid explorers explode dynamite all over the lagoon to stun the Creature into surfacing.]
Servo: Ah, ha-ha! The Charlton Heston Fish Locator.

Servo: Think anybody at the Rockefeller Foundation questioned the dynamite line-item?

[Trainer Miss Abbott is working with a chimp named Neil.]
Miss Abbott: Now, turn around, Neil. Turn around. Turn around. Sit down. All — right.
Servo [as Miss Abbott]: And... evolve.

[A young Clint Eastwood has a cameo.]

[As the attempts to revive the creature at the aquarium drag on.]
Crow: Everybody's drifting over to the "World of Barnacles" exhibit.

[Scientists Clete and Helen are testing the Gill-Man's intelligence, which for some reason involves the liberal use of a cattle prod.]
Servo: Jeez, the Mengele Institute for Marine Research!

[As the deputized posse closes in on the Creature, the police captain radios his men.]
Police Captain: Remember your instructions. The professor is in command from now on. You take orders from him!
Mike [as Police Captain]: The Ichthyology Department of the State U has declared martial law!

The Leech Woman

[Regarding the splotchy pattern behind the movie's opening titles]:
Crow: It's a Rorschach test.
Mike: I see a lot of spilled ink congealing in random patterns.
Servo: That means you're a sexual predator.

[Nurse Sally listens as Old Malla explains to endocrinologist Paul Talbot how she's lived past 140.]
Malla: When we are alone, I will speak.
Crow [as Dr. Talbot]: Well, we kinda are alone. Nursie isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Neil Foster: Mrs. Talbot, I know this is painful, but it's one of those things that have to be done when you plan a divorce.
Mike [as Neil]: You have to be married.

[The jungle explorers trudge through stage sets of Africa, interspersed with stock footage of jungle animals.]
Crow [as Guide]: Well, we'd better camp here tonight. The next stock footage is 18 miles away.

[A stock-footage lion approaches the party, who raise their guns in fear.]
Crow [as Lion]: Um... hakuna matata?
. . .
[The party finds a small, empty shipping crate in a clearing.]
Servo: I see — it's a three room Japanese apartment.

[Lawyer Neil proposes to Teri, who's wearing a silvery dress.]
Neil: Teri... would you marry me?
[Teri pulls away.]
Mike [as Neil]: Uh... uh... I withdraw the question.
Teri: Oh, Neil — I can't.
Servo [as Teri]: Starfleet forbids it.

[During one of the many "African" scenes.]
Mike: Sadly, this tribe of extras no longer exists.

[A hard-boiled detective lazily investigates the house.]
Crow: This guy's gonna die of nonchalance.

Mike: This is like a murderous episode of Lucy.

The Mole People

[The film begins with an introduction from Professor Frank C. Baxter of the University of Southern California.]
Baxter: This is science fiction of course. It's a fiction, it's a fable.
Mike: It's a fabulous funny freak-out.
Baxter: But I think if you study this picture and think about it, when it's over...
Crow: You'll feel dirty.
Baxter: You'll realize that this is something more than just a story told.
Servo: It's a story botched.
Baxter: It's a fable with a meaning and a significance for you and for me in the 20th century. Thank you, and goodbye.
Mike: Peanut nostrils happy clams.

[The opening credits scroll out of a huge crater]
Mike: Mt. Pinatubo erupted yesterday, spewing movie credits all over the Southern Hemisphere.

Mike [as Narrator]: There is a Jackson.

[The movie opens with a review of North American defense monitoring stations.]
Narrator: Another radar fence stretches across the long, unfortified border between the United States and Canada...
Servo [as Narrator]: Canada, our mortal enemy.
Narrator: ... the Pine Tree Radar Fence.
Mike [as Narrator]: The natural radar of pine trees protects our northern borders.

[The camera pans by Greenland on a map.]
Crow: You know what? Screw you Greenland!

[A volcano erupts.]
Servo [as the Menard's Guy]: It's a magma flow of savings at Menard's!

[A museum guard salutes Dr. Jackson]
Mike: Uh, you don't need to salute the paleontologist.

[A Corporal at the Arctic base acts like he's having a nervous breakdown after Marge Blaine appears.]
Crow: Yeah, I think this guy's familiar with dishonorable discharge.

[The rather effeminate-looking General Ford explains to the media that the mantis is real]
General Ford: I want to say at the outset that, contrary to rumor and certain newspaper headlines...
Crow [as Ford]: I'm not gay!

Pearl: Ha! Nelson, you big sissy, making that oversized purple Shop-Vac do your driving for you! Ha!
Gypsy: Oh yeah, sister? Well, you’re gonna be eating my space dust!
Pearl: Dream on. I'm switching to my 9-iron, dead girl.

Gypsy: Alright, baby, out! Out-out-out-out! [shoves Mike aside, takes the ship's helm with her mouth]
Crow: Get it, Gyps!

Crow [as Col. Parkman]: But I've got a mantis in my pantis.

Mike: Couldn't die or wouldn't die?
Crow: Shouldn't?

[Jessica demonstrates her dowsing talent by telling the guests where to find Linda's missing watch.]
Jessica: You can find the watch in a trade rat's nest.
Servo: A trade rat?
Jessica: Look at the base of oak tree beside Linda's cabin.
Servo [as Jessica]: …in Maine.
Mike: You know, the country needs skilled trade rats.

[Linda puts the found watch up against her ear.]
Mike [as Linda]: The rats put in a new crystal!
Linda: It still runs.
Servo [as John Cameron Swayze]: John Cameron Trade-Rat.

[Later, Gordon gives Linda a charm he found near the watch.]
Gordon: Here, I polished this for you. We found it in the trade rat's nest.
Mike [as Gordon]: He had a little tool and die shop down there.
Servo [as Gordon]: I think I got most of the rat droppings off it.

[Flavia hears a noise outside the window.]
Flavia: What's that?
Crow: Eh, it's just those trade rats working the night shift.

[Boyd the ranch hand slouches around.]
Crow: [singing] There's a thick yellow stain on my back brace!

[The final shot of the movie, a zoom in on Jessica's necklace and cleavage, fills the screen.]
Crow: The whole movie was leading up to this shot.
Mike [as Announcer]: Brought to you by the Breast Council.
Servo [as Announcer]: Buy breasts where you work or bank!

The Undead

[A fire is being used as a background for the opening credits.]
Crow: Fire in the projection room! Guess we can't watch the movie!
[Crow darts toward the exit but is restrained by Mike.]

[The opening credits list Roger Corman as the film's director.]
Servo: That's it, we're doomed.

[The movie opens with a flamboyant Satan speaking to the viewers.]

. . .
Servo: Peter Pan, Antichrist.

[Quintus is hypnotizing Diana. A bust of Benjamin Franklin looks over his shoulder.]
Quintus: We breathe as one. We are one.
Servo [as Franklin]: You know, early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
Quintus: When I touch you…
Crow [as Quintus]: I think about myself. No, no, no, wait.
Quintus: …we will be one.
Servo [as Quintus]: We'll be me, for convenience' sake.

[Smolkin grabs a clearly modern shovel.]
Servo: Apparently there were Hardware Hanks during the middle ages.
Mike [as Ray Szmanda]: Gettest thou a cemetery full of savings at Menards!

[As Smolkin the gravedigger slouches around.]
Servo: Smolkin's naked sometimes, Mike.
Mike: [cringing] Ohh. Damn you, Servo!

[A knight demands to look inside a coffin in a coach being pulled by a gravedigger.]
Servo [as Knight]: Towest thy vehicle to the curb and showeth me thy driver's license and registration. Did thou knowest how fast thou was driving?

[Satan explains to Quintus how he cannot return to his own time.]
Satan: Thy voyage to this age was down a long, long road…
Crow [as Satan]: Route 666!
Satan: …that tied Diana to Helen. It was a road from living mind to living mind.
Mike [as Satan]: …to sleeping audience.
. . .
Satan: Here you are fixed! Make of a local life what comfort, sport, and joy thou may.
Servo: [singing to "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen"] O-ho, tidings of comfort, sport, and joy!

[Quintus sets upon and subdues an unprepared knight.]
Mike [as Knight]: [in stilted "medieval" grammar that parodies the knight's own dialogue] Me help! Attacked I am being! Hitting me stop you must! God dear! Bleeding am I! Break my leg think I did you!

[As Helene expounds on the dilemma facing her:]
Mike: I've never known more about what isn't going on in a movie.

Quintus: STAAY!!

Terror from the Year 5000

[Two scientists are looking at a statue of unknown origin.]
Scientist 1: Now there's an interesting sample!
Crow: Now there's an interesting line read!
Scientist 1: What is it?
Scientist 2: Don't know yet.
Servo: Remember, when making a dramatic film, be sure to use genuine actors.

Claire: I thought scientists were great explorers of the unknown.
Dr. Hedges: I'll do my exploring in the laboratory, if you don't mind.
Servo [as Hedges]: I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine! [N]

Servo: All these random scenes simply abut each other to form a movie.

[Claire takes a reluctant Dr. Hedges to a pier after answering about two dozen stupid questions from him.]
Mike [as Hedges]: Now what's going on?
Servo [as Hedges]: Who's that other guy?
Crow [as Hedges]: Where are we going?
Mike [as Hedges]: What is this fluid under my feet?
Servo [as Hedges]: What happened to the day-ball?
Crow: Let's chip in and buy this movie a life.

[On the creek bottom, Bob Hedges finds the chest containing the dead cat.]
Mike: Hey! They whacked Toonces!
Crow: Well, he killed a made canary, so they had to do 'im.

Dr. Erling: Think, Bob. Throughout human history, what has been the first activity of explorers of any new region?
Crow [as Hedges]: Genocide?
Mike [as Hedges]: Slavery?
Servo [as Hedges]: Diseased blanket spreading?

[Bob Hedges, Claire, and her father have some time to kill while waiting for Victor's test results.]
Hedges: Is there a good movie in town?
Mike: [snorts] Now we get to watch people watching a movie? What is that all about?
Crow: Heh heh heh!
[Mike and Crow consider what they're saying.]
Mike, Crow: Oh.

[Victor packs a suitcase and leaves the house]
Crow [as Victor/Joe Buck]: I'm goin' to the city to be a stud.
Mike: Please! That's a hideous thought.

Servo: This is the same sumptuously detailed set that was later used in The Age of Innocence!
Crow: Or was it Sense and Sensibility?
Mike: I think it was Barfly.
Crow: Yeah, that's it.

The She-Creature

[To keep the Observers at bay so Pearl and Bobo can escape, the Nanites place a Number 7 move on the planet below]
Mike Nelson: Say, what's a Number 7? [the planet explodes]
Servo: Mike, you blew up another planet! What is your deal?
Mike Nelson: I just told them to take care of a little problem!
Crow: And they did! Here comes Mike- Destroyer of Worlds!
Servo: Oh God of Fire and Vengeance... stay away from me!

[At the carnival, Lombardi talks about his assistant Andrea with Johnny the barker.]
Barker Johnny: I knew her when she was a carnival follower. Every time we'd hit a town, she'd be there, waiting for us.
Servo: So she's a carnival preceder.

[Dr. Erickson chats with Andrea, who noticeably fills out her tight-fitting top.]
Erickson: Maybe we could talk about it over a cup of coffee.
Andrea: I'd like that.
Servo [as Erickson]: Would you like a C cup or a D cup of coffee?

[Lombardi hypnotizes Andrea back to her "Elizabeth" former life. Fellow hypnotist Erickson (played by Lance Fuller) questions her.]
Crow [as Erickson/Fuller]: My first question: will I get the part in This Island Earth?
Erickson: What year is it, Andrea?
Mike [as Elizabeth]: [singing] The year of the cat.
Andrea/Elizabeth: 1618, the Year of Our Lord.
Servo [as Elizabeth/Eliza Doolittle]: In 'artford, 'ereford, and 'ampshire.
Erickson: Who is the reigning monarch?
Andrea/Elizabeth: James Stuart.
Mike [as George Bailey]: Now, wait a second. You're crazy, and you're driving me crazy, too!

[Lombardi forces King the dog to back away simply by staring at him.]
Lombardi: There aren't many who can control an animal by hypnosis, are there, Doctor?
Erickson: No.
Lombardi: He did what I told him without a single word.
Mike: That's because he's a dog!

[As Dr. Erickson looks out over the beach, large flipper-like footprints appear mysteriously in the sand.]
Servo: [gasps] Donald Duck has the Ring of Power!
Crow: Frodo goes snorkeling!

[A poster for Dr. Lombardi's show features a picture of him, serious and unsmiling]
Mike: See his lecture series, "Let A Smile Be Your Calling Card."

[The creature has just mortally attacked Lombardi as blank-faced Dr. Erickson looks on:]
Mike [as Erickson]: Well, mmm, gosh, I, mmm... Hmm. Uh...
[Erickson continues to emote incomprehensibly:]
Crow: Fear? Elation? What is it?
Crow: Despair? Love? Joy? Tell us!
Crow: Concern? Passion? Hunger? What, Lance?
Crow: Ennui? Angst? Apathy? Gas?
Servo: Cold? Jubilant? Headache-y?
Mike: His emotional memory is the previous scene.

Mike: Man, if ever I wanted to put a movie into a stump grinder, this is the one.

I Was a Teenage Werewolf

[As Michael Landon's name appears in the opening credits]
Mike: [singing to the Bonanza theme] We got a film, and it's starring Michael Landon...

[A crowd of "teens" watch the fight]
Mike: And the 35-year-old high school students look on.

[Tony, played by Michael Landon, has just punched someone. His friends look on in shock]
Mike [as Tony]: But I thought I had a right to pick a little fight, Bonanza.

[Tony takes Arlene home in his sweet ride of a 1950s convertible.]
Crow: If I were a bug, I'd be proud to smash into that grill. Yep.

[Leaving the party, first victim Frank walks home through the woods.]
Mike [as Frank]: [muttering] "I'm okay. I don't need a ride." What was I thinking? It's like 47 miles!
Crow [as Frank]: I'm probably pretty tasty and well-marbled—not something I've often thought of.
. . .
Servo: I was a Teenage Werewolf Snack.

[Tony has finished yelling at Arlene for asking an innocent question]
Mike [as Arlene]: ...and I like you because...?
Tony: I'm sorry, Arlene. I don't know why I act like this.
Crow [as Arlene]: Because you're a jerk?

Crow: Does just walking through it make you want to kill yourself? Then it's a high school!

[The werewolf approaches a high school gymnast as she practices.]
Crow: Time for your compulsory Being-Eaten routine!
. . .
[The dark-haired gymnast screams in terror.]
Crow: Judy Garland runs out of pills.

[The werewolf prowls the woods during an amazingly bright night.]
Servo: Well, they couldn't shoot at night because the night belongs to Michelob.
Mike: I thought the night belonged to love.
Servo: Yeah, it did, but it was bought out by Michelob.

The Giant Spider Invasion

[First lines of the movie]
Man: Sheriff!

[Mike and the 'bots all react with utter revulsion as Kester drops his pants, exposing red long underwear.]
Mike: Ugh, he's pink!
Servo: I don't know how, but I think I just became sterile!
Crow: [cheering] Go spiders! Go spiders! Go go spiders!

[Ev and Dan struggle in the wind from a meteorite strike on their land.]
Servo [as Dan]: Why, I hope that bomb didn't land on our pile of tires and our busted refrigerator in the yard, and the rusted chassis of our '68 Impala!
. . .
Dan: What the [expletive deleted] hell was that?
Mike [as Dan]: Why, it's befuddlin' mah dumb cracker mind!

[Repeated line]
Servo, Mike, or Crow [As various people in the mob]: Packers!

[After seeing Dan's car, with its Ford lettering facing the camera.]
Crow: Like a Rock! [N]

[The scene opens in Ev and Dan's pitch-black kitchen at night.]
Servo: Actually filmed inside the thumbhole of a bowling ball.
. . .
[Later in that scene, Dan begins chasing sister-in-law Terri around the kitchen table after threatening to spank her.]
Mike: And the movie ramps up the revulsion!
Crow: This movie hates us, doesn't it?

[After interminable redneck hijinks, the film cuts to astronomer Dr. Jenny Langer in a laboratory.]
Crow: A showered person... thank God!

[Dan is trying to find out if the stones he found are diamonds]
Ev: Diamonds are supposed to cut glass.
Crow: Yeah, they're supposed to, but they're too damn lazy!
Dan: [walks toward window]
Servo: Too bad all their windows are made of plastic wrap and duct tape!
[Dan scratches a crude "$" into the window]
Crow [as Dan]: ...Aryan...Nation...rules...
Dan: [excited] Will you look at that!?
Mike [as Dan]: [excited] I made a [sic] "R"!

[A visibly shaken Dan stumbles back into the kitchen after discovering a mutilated corpse in the backyard.]
Ev: You look like you could use a drink.
Servo [as Ev]: And a shower, and a job.
Dan: I found another body...
Mike [as Ev]: Well, good, 'cause yours is gettin' kinda gross.

[As yet another unappealing rural Wisconsinite is harrassed by a giant spider.]
Mike: I'm starting to wish that the South would rise again and crush the North.

[Ev opens a dresser drawer and an assortment of puppet spiders pop their legs out of the drawer.]
Mike [as Spiders]: We're your dirty socks! Wash us!
Crow: Giant Puppet Invasion!

[Drs. Vance and Langer climb a hill, only to discover the giant spider, its spindly, furry legs akimbo.]
Servo [as Spider]: Please — consider my legs when cleaning your pipe!

[A restless mob begins to form with the intent of taking out the giant spider.]
Crow [as a mob member]: Free Bobby Seale!
Servo [as a mob member]: Free Mumia!
Mike [as a mob member]: Free beer!

Crow: I'd like to say a few words. Uh, this guy's dead, the end.

Crow: [as the film credits roll] You know, when Barbara Hale won her Oscar, she gave a very touching speech where she said- to effect- "VAAAAANCE!!".

Bobo: I saved you and the whole galaxy! Aren't you proud?
Pearl: You mean they watched the movie, and I didn't get to watch them watching the movie? Bobo, get rid of my body. Brain guy, send them the movie - again.
Mike, & The Bots [over the credits]: MOVIE SIGN! AGAIN!

Parts: The Clonus Horror

[Voices are heard whispering and muttering.]
Crow: Mike, I think the voices in my head are a little louder than usual.

[The crowd cheers wildly at Senator Knight's campaign rally.]
Mike: Hooray for the '70s!
Crow: Shaun Cassidy for President!
Servo: We want Billy Beer!

[The title card reads 'parts: the clonus horror']
Crow: Apparently e. e. cummings wrote it.

Tom Servo: Oh, I don't think this is headed toward a happy ending.
Mike: Y'know, at this point any ending would make me happier than I've ever been.

[The movie's opening credits list Dick Sargent.]
Crow: Dick Sargent. Didn't he play Dick York on Bewitched?

[Two bare-chested male clones are competing in Greco-Roman wrestling.]
Servo [as Guide]: This is not sanctioned, gentlemen. You are doing this on your own…

[Clones Lena and Richard chat by a campfire.]
Lena: I like it. It gives me time to write.
Richard: Write?
Lena: Yeah, I write my thoughts and my ideas.
Crow [as Lena]: I've already filled a Post-it note.

[Clones Lena and Richard wake up the next morning after a night of sex and, thanks to camera positioning, it looks like Richard's crotch is smoking.]
Crow: Wow, she really WAS on top of Ol' Smokey!

[Clone Richard searches through some top-secret files.]
Mike [as Richard/Winston Smith]: Whaddya know — we aren't at war with Eurasia!
. . .
[Richard reads a file written in a careful, round cursive.]
Crow: Thanks to Miss Taylor's fourth-grade class for transcribing our secret clone notes!
. . .
Mike [as Richard]: Black helicopter… RoswellArea 51Wacoformula for Coca-Cola

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies

[As the show opens, the Bots are doing walkathons.]
Mike: Uh, what about you, Servo?
Servo: Well, I'm walking for "Helping Children Through Research And Development".
Mike: Oh, HeCTRAD! Yeah, I think I've heard of that group. It's a good group.
Servo: No, actually "HELPING CHILDREN THROUGH RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT" is the acronym, Mike. It stands for "Hi, Everyone. Let's Pitch In 'N' Get Cracking Here In Louisiana Doing Right, Eh? Now Then. Hateful Rich Overbearing Ugly Guys Hurt Royally Everytime Someone Eats A Radish, Carrot, Hors d'oeuvre, And Never Does Dishes. Eventually, Victor Eats Lunch Over Peoria Mit Ein Neuesberger Tod".

[The opening credits show a man's face decaying into a zombie's face.]
Mike: The shroud of David Schwimmer.
. . .
Servo: Face is the result of slash and burn shaving.
Mike [as zombie]: You'd tell me if my face was disintegrating, right?
Servo: He's turning into a brisket.
Crow: It's a portrait of Bob Dole's inner child.
. . .
Crow: He's turning into a seed sculpture from the state fair.
. . .
Crow: Tom Petty in the morning.
. . .
Crow: You know, seaweed makes a perfectly acceptible toupee.
[Cut to a toy clown laughing.]
Mike: Ah, good old-fashioned nightmare fuel.

[On the music in the opening credits]
Crow: The organ has emphysema.
. . .
Mike: Come hear [credited as music] Libby Quinn play the organ with her feet.
Servo: [singing to the "Libby's, Libby's, Libby's on the Label, Label, Label" jingle] If it says Libby's, Libby's, Libby's, in the credits, credits, credits, you won't like it, like it, like it...
Mike: The music's gonna break into "Chest Fever" any minute.

[Lounging with friend Harold, Jerry rejects the idea of work.]
Jerry: The world's… here to be enjoyed, not to make you depressed. That's what work does, Harold—it makes you feel... depressed.
Mike: Goofus and Gallant, the movie.

Jerry: How's college?
Madison: Fine. You should try it some time.
Jerry: No thanks. The world's my college.
Crow: He's taking it pass-fail.

[Zebra-striped dancers move in formation to a oddly "Silent Night"-like tune.]
Mike: Hair-trigger precision. They're like the Blue Angels of dancing.
Servo: Yeah, one wrong move and they all crash.

[The singer and dancers are performing "Shook Out of Shape". Mike and the Bots sing their own words.]
Mike [as Singer]: First blade lifts, the second one cuts. You get your…
Mike, Crow [as Chorus]: Schick out of shape!
Servo: Now, everybody—shave!

[Confused, acid-scarred Jerry is being tossed around in the surf.]
Servo: [You know] how some movies inspire you to make your own movie? This one inspires me to make my own gravy.

[Jerry and Harold discuss Jerry's girlfriend's mother]
Jerry: Her mother doesn't like anything. Especially me.
Harold: Well, if you get a job or something, she might change her mind, you know?
Jerry: [shocked] Job?
Servo [as Jerry]: I'm a respected neurosurgeon!

[After seeing who played Madison]
Mike: Madison is, Madison.

Jack Frost

Servo:...could eat no...frost.

Crow: Ladies and... Gypsy! Michael Nelson IS... LORD OF THE DANCE!:

Crow: I dunno...

Gypsy: Oh... Um, yaaay!... Well, there's this sink I need to take a look at, so I'll just..

[Nastenka has to knit some socks before the sun rises.]
Mike: So, the first plot point involves knitting socks. I think we're in for quite a ride, guys!

[As two characters command a house to turn from one side to another]
Crow: Come to Knott's Berry Farm and ride the unstable house.

Pearl: Until next time, Nelson, fresh pain awaits!

[Russian names are on the screen.]
Mike: These names are all Russian for Alan Smithee.

Stepmother: [after telling Nastenka to knit socks outside] They better be done by the time the rooster crows, you hear me? Otherwise, I'll tear your braid off!
Crow: [as Nastenka, singing] M is for the many times you beat me... O is for the other times you beat me...

[The sun rises. Nastenka runs to address the horizon.]
Nastenka: Have mercy, rosy-fingered Dawn! Have mercy on me, o rising golden Sun!
Servo [as Sun]: And you are…?
Nastenka: Wait 'til I'm done knitting these stockings! Otherwise I'll be punished severely. Stepmother said she would tear off my braid.
Mike [as Sun]: [beeps] This is the Sun. Your call is very important to us, but due to unusually high call volume…
[The sun obligingly reverses itself and sinks below the horizon.]
Servo: Oh, the world's thrown into chaos — earthquakes, floods — but that's fine; you knit your sock.
. . .
Nastenka: Thank you, rosy-fingered Dawn!
Mike [as Mafia don]: Some day you'll return the favor...

[The camera pans to several different chickens calling.]
Crow: This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast Chicken.
Servo: Man, Peter must be walkin' around denyin' everybody this morning.

[Ivan plays hide-and-seek with the gnomish Father Mushroom.]
Mike: Frodo gets drunk and screws with his neighbors.
. . .
Crow: If Disappearing Elf Hide-and-seek were in the Olympics, Finland would be in great shape!

[To prevent Ivan from killing a mother bear, Nastenka turns a bucket over his head. Father Mushroom then casts a spell. When the bucket is removed, Ivan has been turned in to a bear.]
Ivan: Nastenka!
Servo: It was her bucket full of Rogaine.
Ivan: What's the matter?
Crow [as Ivan]: Am I un-bear-able?

[after Ivan realizes he was turned into a bear]
Crow: [as Ivan] Damn it, Puck! This time you've gone too far!
Ivan: What did you do to me? What have you done, you witch?!
Mike: [as Ivan, crying and running off] Mommy!!
Servo: [as Ivan/Yogi] I have to go find a pic-a-nic basket!
Nastenka: Ivanushka!
Crow: [as Nastenka] We have to register at Club Wed!
Nastenka: Ivan, I swear I didn't do anything to you!
Ivan: [angrily] I curse you! I curse you forever; you witch!
Servo: Tonight on a very special Grizzly Adams.

Ivan: [lamenting over the loon he shot which led him to Nastenka, after he has been turned into a bear] I killed you with an arrow, and you ruin me with a feather!
Crow [as Ivan]: It's funny when you think about it!

[The flowers Nastenka was watering quickly grow and resemble fiber-optic cables.]
Crow: The KGB has her under surveillance!

[Father Mushroom disappears in a cloud of smoke.]
Servo: Whoa! [I] didn't think they had many landmines left in Narnia!

[The evil stepmother makes up her own daughter Marfushka to look like a Matryoshka doll.]
Stepmother: Nope! Not a princess.
Servo: She's got that healthy clown glow.
Marfushka: Oh, no?
Stepmother: You are a queen!
Mike: In that you look like Freddie Mercury.

Crow: [as a crowd of people show up mocking Marfushka as she is stuck in a duck pond] And the Freelance Shame Squad is there!

. . .

[later the group returns and the camera focuses on a blond-haired boy in the crowd]
Servo: It's a young Mike Nelson!
Mike: [offended] Hey!

[The Hunchback Fairy has placed Ivan on a wooden server and is preparing to put him in her oven.]
Ivan: Look, Hunchback Fairy, I'm sorry!
Fairy: Are you afraid?
Ivan: Well, it's just that I've never been pushed into an oven, and it's the first time I've ever sat on a shovel!
Mike [as Ivan]: ...the flat part, anyway.

Crow: So, the premise of this movie is that everyone is just nuttier than all get-out?

[Nastenka accidentally touches Grandfather Frost's sceptre]
Frost's Voice: Whoever touches my sceptre...will never wake up again.
Crow: Yeah, well maybe it should be stored a little more safely!

[While Nastenka's stepparents are in their home, someone offscreen announces an arrival...]
Random Unknown Voice: Look who's here!
Servo: Thank you, Anonymous Voice!

[Ivan and Nastenka arrive and bow deeply to greet her family.]
Crow [as Nastenka]: We spit on your doorstep!
Servo: Ptui!
Crow: Ptui!
Mike [as her hectored father]: Please take me with you, please, please...
Nastenka: I'd like you to meet...
Servo [as Nastenka]: Uh, what's your name again?
Nastenka: Ivanushka, my fiance.
Crow [as Ivan through a forced smile]: I can't look at them, honey; they're horrible.

[Marfushka returns to her home in a sled being pulled by pigs.]
Crow: It's a three-pig open sleigh!
Servo: On Wilbur! On Gordy! On Babe!

[The scruffy bandits return to seize Ivan and Nastenka.]
Servo: It's…
Mike: It's…
Crow: It's… a convention of Michael Palin imitators!
. . .
Crow: It's the Seven Dwarves! Filthy, Rotting, Lousey, Skanky, Scabby, Septic and… Doc.

[Ivan snaps the Hunchback Fairy's broom over his knee]
Hunchback Fairy: My broom! I'm a witch and I can't move without it!
Crow: Well, maybe you should have diversified more!

Riding with Death

[In the middle of a WWI-style war, or some sort of battle, after Mrs. Forrester is hit.]
Mrs. Forrester: (panting) Oh, great! Just what I need!
Bobo: Medic! Medic!
Observer: [enters wearing nurse's outfit] Here I am!
Mrs. Forrester: Brain Guy? What the hell
Observer: My race is pacifist and does not believe in war. We only kill out of personal spite. We will, however, administer humanitarian aid. (begins attending to Forrester's wound)
Mrs. Forrester: ...what's that smell?!
Observer: Oh! Mustard gas!
Mrs. Forrester: Mustard gas! Get the masks!
Bobo: Oh, no, that's just me; I ate a whole jar of Plochman's with my knishes for lunch.
Observer: Good god, ape...
Mrs. Forrester: That's it, we're pulling out!
[Clanking sound is heard]
Observer: Hand grenade!
Bobo: Grenade! I'll save you! [throws Observer to the ground; the grenade goes off right near him]
Mrs. Forrester: Bobo, Brain Guy, quit farting around and get in the van! Okay, Nelson, we need air support an we need it fast!
Observer: [looks up] It's a good thing I don't have a body... [flops back down]
[Back on the SOL, Mike Nelson is pouring baking soda into a bomb casing while Crow and Servo watch]
Mike Nelson: Sure, no problem; I used to make these babies in junior high school, out of vinegar and baking soda...
Crow: I-is that too much baking soda, Mike, or—
Mike: [ignoring Crow] ...and high school, now that I think of it. And college, too. expelled for that...
Servo: D-definitely too much baking soda, Mike.
Crow: Just a little too much.
[Crow makes a small "Whoa..." as Mike pulls out a much larger box of baking soda and filling the bomb casing with it]
Mike: And for that temp job I worked on, too...until that one guy in receiving got me fired...
Crow: Heh, Mike, Mike, honey...the baking soda—
Mike: [again ignoring Crow]It was just a little prank, but he had to rat out on me, didn't he? Oh, well, I guess some people are just like that...
Servo: So! Bombs away, Mike!
Crow: Okay, Mike! Bombs away!
Mike: Oh! Right... [Mikes walks away with the bomb as Crow and Servo cheer]
Crow: Bombs away, Mike!
Servo: Bombs away! [to Crow] Hey, I heard you can make a bazooka out of PVC tubing and a used diaper.
Crow: Is that so?
[Mike reenters without the bomb]
Crow: Okay, okay! Hee-hee-hee...
Mike: There you go, Mrs. Forrester, a little distraction...
Crow: A little distraction!
[Mike and the Bots laugh, and then a huge explosion goes off, knocking the bots off Mike's workstation.]
Crow: [gets back up] Okay... Few things, Mike. First, uh, well, you blew up another planet, obviously; what's that, three for you now?
Servo: Think so...

[As the gang enters the theater, the Universal Pictures logo appears.]
Servo: [Imitates the theme to "The Jetsons", then a space car]
Mike: Universal, except for you, Ron.
Crow: You know, the Earth's thinks it's so great.
Servo: Oh yeah. It thinks the world revolves around itself.

[As the title appears]
Mike: Hey, the Matthew Broderick story.
Crow: And believe me, Death does not pony up for gas.

[During the opening credits]
Mike: Is there such a thing as starring Ben Murphy? Isn't it more honest to say that most of the time the camera is pointed at Ben Murphy?
. . .
Crow: Starring rejects from Harry-O.
. . .
Servo: If Clu Gulager isn't in this, it'll be very wrong.
Mike: Anthony Zerbe, come on! Please, please, please, please!
. . .
Servo: Ah, that's who's playing John Hiller this time.
. . .
Servo: Aw, Steven Bochco? Does this mean we have to see Dennis Franz's hairy butt cheeks?

Crow: Ah, that gooey LA sky.
Mike: Birds? Nope. All dead.

[Truckers Sam and "Buffalo Bill" attempt a dangerous tandem braking maneuver.]
Sam: Alrighty, I'm coming up on your mudflaps at 67.

. . .
[Adam turns to his pupil as he leaves on a motorcycle.]
Adam: Judo range!
Crow [as Adam]: Then go practice your skeet kendo and bring your aikido rifle, too.
Mike [as Student]: Gotta get into my judo bikini.

Adam: I'm not leaving until I get the answers, do I make myself clear?
Servo [as Dr. Stefanik]: Ah, let me review... you're going to leave right now, because you can't get the answers.
Dr. Stefanik: Yes. You've made yourself quite clear. [Walks away.]
Crow [as Dr. Stefanik]: I'll go get the cot.

Adam: You think you can't get hurt, Doctor, because this is America? Apple pie and all that jazz?

Servo [as Citizen]: Ohhhhh!
Crow [as Phantom]: Potatoes or stuffing?!

[The Phantom witnesses Prince of Space invading his headquarters.]
Phantom: What a fool!
Servo [as Phantom]: He has defeated us numerous times, what makes him think he can do it again?

[Phantom is hiding behind the door as Prince of Space bursts in; Phantom quietly exits.]

[Over the "Additional Dialogue by" credit]
Mike: What is "additional dialogue", anyway?

Crow: I did it for Debbie! Let me drive over there! I don't care!

[The camera cuts to Hugo in the back seat of a car as it drives along.]
Crow: [as Hugo] I'm driving with my mind!

Servo: Am I a mod or a rocker?

Mike: [to the other robots] You know, if it weren't for rock n' roll, ventriloquy would've been huge.
Crow: [as Vorelli, while the audience claps at the end of a show] Thank you halfway-houses and geriatric wards!
Servo: [as Vorelli] Thrill as he doesn't talk and I don't move my lips!
Mike: [audience continues applauding] Keep clapping, and he might never get to his act!
[Vorelli leaves the stage with Hugo and his assistant]
Crow: [as Hugo] That sucked! Even I didn't believe I was talking!

[On stage, ventriloquist dummy Hugo performs with The Great Vorelli]
The Great Vorelli: Well, Hugo, what are you going to do to entertain the audience tonight?
Hugo: Anything you say, my dear Vorelli; except that kind of thing.
The Great Vorelli: What do you mean?
Hugo: Simply that you are laughing while I am talking.
The Great Vorelli: And what's wrong with that?
Hugo: Oh, it's an old ventriloquist trick; they're all doing it now, it's corny.
The Great Vorelli: Perhaps we can show the audience a variation of it then.
Tom Servo: [as Vorelli] Mid-wax, Hugo?
Hugo: [noticing Vorelli drinking a glass of wine] Give me some wine. I want some wine.
The Great Vorelli: A dummy? Drinking wine?
Crow T. Robot: [as Vorelli] Spodie-odie?
The Great Vorelli: Don't be ridiculous!
Hugo: I want some! Give it to me! I know what wine is! I've had wine before. I want some wine! Why shouldn't I have some wine?
Mike: [as Hugo] All I want is my fair share! All I want is what's coming to me!
The Great Vorelli: You are a dummy, Hugo.
Crow: [as the audience claps] The Puppet-Haters' Club will be right back!

[During Vorelli's act, Hugo gets up and crosses to the refreshment table, where Vorelli is eating ham.]
Crow: [as Hugo] You think he likes ham? Wait 'til you see me like ham!

[German dancer and former Vorelli assistant Mercedes tells the two reporters about the original Hugo]

[Hugo sits in his cage while The Great Vorelli answers the door]
Hugo: Attica! Attica!

Tom Servo: [as Hugo in Vorelli's body] I'm sweaty because I was choking a puppet. Ah, no no, wait!
[Dr. Tibana examines a sample under a microscope]
Tibana: So, then—the Rogi-Pani Complex.
Mike: The "Roji-Panty Complex"?

Servo & Crow [as the Neptune Men]: HA. HA. HA. HA. Your costume is ridiculous.

[In an extremely poorly staged fight scene, Space Chief goes through an elaborate display of martial arts as the Neptune Men stagger around awkwardly and tumble to the ground.]
Servo: That guy just fell down, for cryin' out loud!
. . .
Crow: They're being defeated by a wispy bachelor.
. . .
[The Neptune Men retreat into their ship.]
Crow [as Space Chief]: Aw c'mon, I wanna jump around while you fall down more!

[The Neptune Men approach Earth]
Mike: Shoot at Earth all you want, just get Bill Maher.

[As the Neptune Men demolish Tokyo]
Servo [as the Japanese]: Oh, let's call our friends the Koreans! Oh, oh no—the Russians! Well, no. The Chinese! Oh, well, I guess not.

[The Neptune Men endlessly strafe Tokyo]
Mike: I never thought I'd say it, but suddenly Independence Day seems a richly-nuanced movie.

Crow: To be dead... to be nothing... to watch Neptune Men no more!

[After about 20 minutes of scenes depicting the kids running around a military base]
Crow: So whatever happened to Space Chef?
Mike: That's "Chief."
Crow: Chief Chef?

Crow: Y'know, Space Chief should try going into space sometime!
Servo: Yeah, he's more like Lower-Atmosphere Chief.
Mike: Barely-Off-The-Stupid-Ground Chief.

[The attack on the city includes stock footage of a building with a giant picture of Hitler being blown up]
Crow: [royally confused] What the...?

Mike: The great restaurant "The Bunker"! It's gone! You sons of...
Crow: They blew it up!
. . .
Crow: Say, Mike—was there a Hitler Building where you grew up?
Mike: Not, No.
Crow: Sure?
Mike: ...Yeah.
. . .
[Another spaceship begins to dive]
Crow: What next? The Mussolini Mall?
Servo: Yeah! Followed by the Pinochet Petting Zoo!

[Nearly a full 8 minutes after "Space Chief" joins the battle, the "spaceships" are still diving and firing at each other]
Crow: So, d-do either of you guys know any songs about stock footage that would get us through this?
Servo: Oh, I know a song about stock footage! It goes like this: Dih-dih dih dih dih dih... [thundering] EAT IT, MOVIE!

Servo [as probe]: Oh, no, you kids again? Is there anyone else on this planet?
[repeated line]
Servo (as various characters): Did you sign Sherry's card?

[Mike's encyclopedia is a bit behind the times.]
Crow: It lists Hitler as a "fairly stable veteran of the Great War."
Mike: Oh, come on, they're not that old. They're fine.
Servo: Oh yeah? It mentions the lightbulb as a "charming theory."
Crow: Yeah! And Congress is spelled with an "f." What is it, Congriff?
Mike: Well, I used them when I was a kid. [Blows dust off a volume] They seemed fine then.
Crow: The periodic table has three elements in it, Mike!
Servo: There's a volume for the letter epsilon.
Crow: There's a mailing address for Macchu Pichu.
Servo: It's got a picture of Stonehenge!
Mike: So?
Servo: Under construction?!
Mike: So, what you high-minded encyclopedia snobs are trying to tell me is, you want a new set. Fine, I'll get you another set.
Servo: Oh, anything that's not handwritten on papyrus will do.

MacPhearson: Gentlemen, it seems that we are not all in agreement.
Mike: I disagree!
MacPhearson: Engineer Parsons seems content to spend his remaining years upon the Southern Sun.
Chief Engineer: Then let him do so alone.
Engineer Parsons: This is mutiny! This is treason, which I warn you I must report.
Crow [as Parsons]: I just have to wet myself first.
MacPhearson: Will you allow him to spoil your ambitions for a greater future?
Chief Engineer: We'll not allow that! No!
Servo: The easily led wise council.
[the assembled engineers grab hold of Parsons, shove him onto the meeting table and beat him up]
Engineer Parsons: Let me go, traitors!
Mike [as Parsons]: What I meant was, I totally endorse what you're doing! G-owww!
Crow: Rip his band uniform, then he'll have to pay for it!
Servo: Next, they're going to give him books so they can dump them.
Crow: Death by snicker-snag!
[the engineers pin Parsons to the floor, and MacPhearson stabs him through the heart with his walking stick]
Mike: I'm going to inflate him to 35lbs!
Servo [as MacPhearson]: Okay, moving on to number three on our agenda, "Sherry's birthday party."
MacPhearson: Are there any other of you that wish to confuse freedom... with treason?
Mike: I'd like to confuse bok choi with cabbage, sir!
MacPhearson: Report to the enforcers' bridge.
Servo: Well, at least it's the rare meeting where something actually got done!

Servo: Oh?
Mike: Yeah, they usually say something like, "Ben-Hur was really good. This one totally sucked."

[Ryder dodges dozens of laser beams fired by Enforcers from about 20' away]
Crow: Here's some free advice for the mutineers: just stop and aim, you idiots!
Servo: Why is he so impossible to hit? Why do they keep missing the slow, giant, white thing?

[Director David Winters favors us with another scene set in a possibly-abandoned boiler room]
Servo: Ha ha, good, good, back to the rusting septic system of this FUTURISTIC SPACE SHIP!

Kalgan: I'm going to use this laser on your teeth. It's not unsimilar to ancient dentistry, not that you'd know anything about that.

Lea: You bastard!

Mike: Hack Blowfist!
Mike: Roll Fizzlebeef!

[During the long end credits, generic 80s music is playing]
Servo: Okay, okay Mike, be honest with us. This music kind of really gets your blood going?
Crow: Yeah Mike, this is your music done by your people, so I blame you for this entire movie.
Servo: Yeah, it's just like you to make a movie like this. Geez Mike!
Mike: Hey, I hated it too! What're you picking on me for?
Crow: Well, you were a young guy during the '80s, weren't you? This is your world, admit it.
Mike: Uhhh...
[The music slows down to a power ballad style]
Crow: Okay, now this. This here is the kind of music you get all weepy at at the end of a drunken Friday night, sitting there with your hair all feathered, scarfing down uh, cold potato skins.
Servo: Ahh, your attempt to get little Susie what's-her-name drunk on lime vodka ended in humiliating rejection. So you sit there all mushy and sentimental, reciting to yourself the words to some song by Night Ranger. You're pathetic.
Crow: Yeah, now maybe one homely girl feels sorry for you for a second, but then she sees how stinking drunk you are and gets disgusted.
Servo: And, and maybe the first chair trombone player from the high school band comes by you know, and he takes pity on you, tries to drive you home and all. Oh but no, Mike! You wanna swerve home in your cherried-out Dodge Charger!
Crow: Yeah, you wind up wrestling for your keys with the guy, and he drops you - with one punch - and he leaves. And you lie there knowing you got your butt kicked by the leader of the high school band!
Servo: You're pathetic.
Crow: You and your '80s!
Servo: Your precious '80s!
Crow: You know it would've continued to be the '70s if not for you!
Servo: Yeah!
Mike: All right, all right, that's it, that tears it!
[Mike attacks Crow and the three begin fighting on the floor]
Crow: You want a piece of me! It's go time, '80s man!
Servo: Come on cool-breeze! Ow owie ow don't!
[After a while Mike sits up]
Mike: Wait, wait you guys, wait, this isn't us man.
[Pause of a second]
Servo: Yes it is, you hair-feathering freak! Get him!
Crow: No, no, Servo, he's right, he's right. This movie has us turning on each other! It won't end! These credits just won't end! [sobbing]
Servo: [sobbing] It's just like the stupid '80s, they never ended either!
Mike: No no, actually they did end, Tom, there, there, it's okay. See, see there's the copyright, that means it's over.
Servo: [sobbing] I'm sorry, Mike!
Crow: [sobbing] Sorry, Mike!
Mike: It's all over, you guys. I'm sorry too.
[The Edgewood Studios logo appears, showing a dog sitting in a movie theater]
Servo [as dog]: [talking like Scooby-Doo] Rello, I'm Fido Hitchcock, the rirector of ris rilm.
Crow: He's got a bucket of crotch-flavored popcorn.
Mike: [groaning] Oh, Crow. So early, too.
[The logo fades out]
Servo: [still talking like Scooby-Doo] Redgewood Rentertainment, Rimited resents—
Mike: Okay, stop.
Crow: Cut it out.

[The opening title appears over a CGI computer chip]
Crow: This is like NFL graphics here.
Mike: [imitates the "NFL on Fox" theme song]

[As the movie opens, a man flies a propeller plane through some odd visual effects]
Nick: Ha-ha! Nick Miller, you are a genius!
Servo [as Nick]: A crop-dusting genius!

[We see Nick for the first time, as the nerdish hero gets off his plane]
Crow: This... is not our star, is it? I will not accept this as our star, sorry.

[We see Nick ride his bike through a small town]
Mike [as announcer]: Come on down to parallel parking days.

[Nick rides to Martin's Supermarket]
Mike: Come to Martin's. WHATUP?!?

[Nick boots up his computer]
Servo [as the old AOL voice]: You've got mail... pattern baldness!

[During the first scene in 2041]
Mike: [derisively] The, uh, future.
[In a 2041 city, a 10-year-old wearing lime-green pants jogs while talking on a cellphone]
Crow: So, in the future, kids become gay agents?
. . .
Servo: So... 50 years from now will be 3 years from now...
. . .
[As Nick, Lisa, and Matt go into a building, a burly-looking woman walks by]
Servo: Hey, look—a lesbian... of the future!
[Cut to inside, where the camera pans down to a fairly typical food court]
Mike: Food courts... of the future!

[Robertson arrives to meet Nick]
Mike [as Robertson]: Hi, I'm Bob Evil!
Robertson: Trust me.
Servo [as Robertson]: Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

[Nick and Lisa are trying to escape Robertson's building while also being chased by his guards. They come to a room with two routes; Nick quickly opens the door of one route and he and Lisa go down the other. The guards come in and see the open door of the false route.]
Guard: Come on, this way! [They run down the false route]
Mike [as Guard]: Even though I see them running the other way!

[Lisa arrives at the airstrip, wearing two kinds of plaid]
Servo: Two kinds of plaid? Boy, I'm a naked robot, Mike, and even I know that's a fashion no-no.

Servo [as J.K.]: I leave for 20 minutes, and EvilCo is in shambles!
Crow [as Matt]: I'm a team player!

[In the dystopian future, an eyepatch-wearing armed survivor leaps atop a smashed car for a better shooting angle]
Mike [as Gunman]: Arrgh! Sixteen men on a dead Dodge Dart!

[The alarm makes a beeping noise similar to a large vehicle in reverse]
Servo: Great, now the garbage truck's backing up!

[Nick and Lisa are shown together in the new, dystopian future]
Servo: I hope they end up together... at the bottom of a well torn apart by animals!!

Crow: The movie really heightens the lack of interest in the film.
Servo: Yeah, I think—huh?

[As Nick and Lisa's plane crashes towards the rocky shore of a lake, the camera pans to the plane's altimeter]
Servo: They're running out of Alt!
[Cut to a view of the speedometer.]
Eddie: And their Miffnots [MPH KNOTS] are goin' down!

Lisa: Nick!
Crow [as Lisa]: I was shaving this morning and got a nick!
[Eddie hits Crow in the head and knocks him on the floor.]
Eddie: [irritated] Get up! You're all right.

[After Robertson punches Nick out of the flying plane, Nick somehow manages to hang on with his palms flat against the smooth metal wing]
Crow [as Nick]: Ha-ha! Unlucky for you, I secrete pine tar from my hands!

[After Robertson's time transport crashes into a tree]
Crow: 27 Keebler elves were killed today when a light plane plunged into their tree!
Mike: E.L. Fudge remains in critical condition.
. . .
Mike: Oh, he's trying to get honey like Pooh!
Crow: Oh, he's like poo, all right.
. . .
[as Nick climbs down the tree]
Crow: He's climbing an Ent!
Servo: [in a deep, Entish voice] Hoom hom, get off me, hm.
. . .
[Later in that scene, Robertson shoots Nick and kills him.]
Crow: He died as he lived: mud-stained and splaying.
[Then, a conveniently placed tree branch falls of the tree and flattens Robertson.]
Servo: [Satisfied] Oh. Well that's nice. Thank you, movie!

[As a static shot of a tree goes on for quite a while]
Servo: Did the tree contribute money to the film? Why are they showing this?

[Nick types in commands to erase the floppy disks containing his time travel software]
Servo: So, eight 5¼" floppies hold the keys to time travel.
Mike: Delete copies of film? Yes. Delete memory of film from mankind's consciousness? Yes.
[As he throws out the last one, the camera pans to a heap of electronics, including one suspiciously long box with a cord coming out of it]
Mike: Hey... even declared war on his surge protector...

[The credits begin to roll; a slow, low-pitched tune comes up]
Mike: Who's playing the chamber pot?!
[The writer credit appears]
Crow: Written? This movie was written? I don't think so.

[Credits display: Mathew Bruch as Nick Miller]
Servo: We serve a delicious bruch every Suh-day.

[The credits display "The Producers Wish To Thank", followed by a VERY long list of people and organizations]
Servo: Wow, they are special thanking the HELL out of this movie!
. . .
Mike: All these people bear... some responsibility, you know.
[The penultimate "thanks" are to "The citizens and officials of Rutland, Vermont"]
Servo: Which means I really, really hate the citizens and officials of Rutland, Vermont. I'm not kidding, Mike. I never liked the citizens and officials of stupid Rutland, Vermont! This is just the nail in the coffin, as far as I'm concerned. Go to hell, citizens and officials of Rutland, Vermont!

Crow: Filmed in Vermont: the other, smaller Wisconsin!
[Pearl is holding a pledge drive. Servo is trying to call in, but Mike is holding Servo's arm, stretching out the spring.]
Servo: Gimme! Come on, there's still much more to tote!
Mike: Let go of it, man!
Servo: Oh sure, Mike. Go watch your Websters, and your Facts of Lifeses, and your Who's The Bossesesses!
[Movie Sign goes off]
Mike: We got movie sign! [Mike lets go of Servo's hand, sending him flying off screen]

[The opening credits and movie's theme begin over an image of Raul Julia's head inside a golden electronic cube]
Mike: This lovely Raul Julia pendant, available only on the Home Shopping Network.
Crow: It's a Raulbik's Cube!
Servo: Heh heh guys, see, I thought that he was Puerto Rican, I didn't know that he was...
Mike: Oh no, don't say it!
Servo: ...Cube-an!
Mike: Ahhh.
[The cube begins to fade away]
Crow: Raul, you come right back and be in this bad movie, young man!
Servo [as Raul Julia]: But I'm signed to play Archbishop Romero!

[The movie's theme plays]
Mike: And now, the news.

[New York City PBS affiliate WNET is credited]
Servo: That's the New York Public TV station! What, did Pearl accidentally send us "MacNeil-Lehrer Report"?

[Title card is shown]
Servo: [with monotone sarcasm] Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. That is funny.

Crow: Wanda Cannon? Now that's a porno name if I ever head one! Not that I've ever heard one... You know, I don't subscribe to lots of publications or anything.

[The gray-haired and fat head of NoviCorp is giving a speech during the opening credits.]
Mike: Wow. TV's Frank!
Servo: Wow. Frank's really come up in the world.

Crow: Still, this is easier than reading "Wired" magazine.

[Over a shot of Fingal's workplace]
Crow: SAT farms of the future!

[Explaining Fingal's problem, secretly watching movies doing work]
Appalonia: He was working in the data flow center of NoviCorp as a processor third class. He had a terrible job: monitoring routine data output on global climate control.
[The Warner Brothers logo appears on Fingal's screen.]
Mike: And its effect on Bugs Bunny.
. . .
Servo: Man, never show a good movie in the middle of your crappy movie.
. . .
Appalonia: And he'd been doing it for a few weeks before they caught him doing it.
Mike [as Appalonia]: Data entrying with no pants.
. . .
[Fingal gets caught.]
Crow: We now return to Billy Madison.

[Fingal has been sent to therapy.]
Mike: [on the therapist] It's Merv Griffin!
Computer: Ask about his mother.
Servo [as Computer]: Ask if she wears Army boots.
Servo: So aging lesbian nuns run the future?

Apollonia: But of course, almost everyone doppled voluntarily. Fingal was my first compulsory dopple.
Mike [as Apollonia]: I didn't want to bungle or bobble the Fingal dopple...

[A shuttle passenger dashes impoverished Fingal's hopes of "doppling" into a stallion.]
Fingal: I got 47 credits. What kind of a dopple do you think that buys?
Shuttle Passenger: An anteater... maybe.
Crow: Whoa, huge slam on anteaters out of nowhere!

[We see an overhead shot of the word "Nirvana" written on the ground at Nirvana Village.]
Crow: Come... to my mall... to my atrium, yeah yeah!

[At Nirvana Village, workers pass by Fingal with "doppling" people on a tray.]
Servo: Oh, look. Must be a Jack-In-The-Box in the food court.

[Apollonia informs Fingal of the brain augmentation required before doppling]
Fingal: W-- Wait a minute, I changed my mind. Some other time...
Apollonia: Sit down, Mr. Fingal.
Servo [as Apollonia]: You need to tinkle, Fingal?
Apollonia: Nothing to worry about.
Servo [as Apollonia]: How 'bout some Pringles, Fingal?
Apollonia: Trust me.
Mike [as Apollonia]: Just gonna band-saw the top of your head off.

[A boy looks at routing tags while the teacher is explaining what the colors mean.]
Boy: And blue, like this?
Teacher: Well, that's rather unusual. We can talk about it later.
Boy: Is it sexy?
Teacher: We'll talk about it later! Now come along, the class is waiting in the doppling room.
[The boy secretly switches a blue tag with a orange tag before leaving.]
Servo: [chuckling] The littlest sexual deviant.
. . .
[Later, the boy switches Fingal's green routing tag with the blue one.]
Servo: There's your precious Canadian healthcare system at work. [N]

[A medico and teacher stop restless little Desirée from playing with Fingal's exposed brain, while Marco looks for more mischief.]
Servo: Is it "Children of the Damned Day" at the brain institute here?

[Fingal's sleeping body is silhouetted against his identicube.]
Crow: Doctor Who... the hell cares!
Mike: You know, isn't it weird how life imitates art, and I'm, like, sleeping right now, too?

[Fingal has been "doppled" into a baboon.]
Fingal: At least I'm not an anteater.
Mike: This movie just hates anteaters!
. . .
Fingal: This cost me every credit I have?
Mike: He's gonna start flinging it any minute now!
. . .
Mike [as Fingal]: I'm as clumsy as a stupid, repulsive anteater!

[The "doppled" Fingal is looking at a giraffe.]
Fingal: What happened to him? He looks drunk to me!
Crow [as giraffe]: I'm on medication, okay?

[An overhead shot of workers running around Nirvana Village trying to intercept a unauthorized communication.]
Servo [as Worker]: Embassy Suites is having a free brunch! Woo!

[Fingal's identicube begins flahing red.]
Crow: Must be Christmas on the Borg ship.
Servo: [singing] See you on the dark side of Raul...

Mike: You know, I hope nobody ever scrolls up this cinema.

[Fingal is talking to Pierre, a Peter Lorre lookalike.]
Mike: It's Asian Pee-Wee.
. . .
Crow: Who's he trying to do? Jimmy Stewart? Uh, James Cagney. No, no, no, wait... John Kenneth Gaulbraith. No, no, no, Ram Dass. Uh, Terry "Hulk" Hogan, maybe...

Pierre: Everybody goes to The Place.
Servo [as Co-worker]: You know, when they have to go...

[On the name of "The Place"]
Mike: Formerly "That Other Place".
Servo: Yeah, they hired a huge consulting firm for millions of bucks, and this was the name they thought up.
. . .
Servo: Formerly "The Locale".
. . .
Mike: Formerly "The Site".
. . .
Crow: It's changed ownership. Now it's a gentleman's club.

[During another one of Pearl's pledge breaks, Pearl has shown a clip of her signing a duet with Brain Guy.]
Professor Bobo: Hey, I can sing, too! [singing off-key] And now you find yourself in '82— [Pearl kicks him in the groin.]

[The Fat Man enters "The Place" and sits down.]
Mike [as the Fat Man]: All I can eat? The joke's on them!

[While stuck inside the NoviCorp computer, Fingal is told to go about his normal data processing routines.]
Fingal: I can't take this anymore... I'm so bored!
[Mike and the Bots all look around]
Servo: OK, which one of us said that?
Crow: I felt it, I don't...
. . .
Fingal: Listen! We're nothing more than a byte in a giant computer!
Mike, Crow, Servo [as co-workers]: [dully] I'm okay with that.
. . .
[Fingal holds up a bunch of cards and they turn into flowers.]
Crow [as co-worker]: My coffee coupon!
Fingal: If I'm in charge of what happens to me in here. I'm not going to go on being a zombie like all those zombies at work.
Crow: I'll be a better zombie!

[During a rather adult scene]
Mike: Man, kids are tuning in to watch "Barney"...

[Inside Fingal's virtual world, sim-Apollonia argues with Fingal about his "romance" with a simulated co-worker.]
Apollonia: If this one-handed exercise is all you can think of to do with your life...
Crow: Whoa!
Apollonia:'re a very little man, and I'm very disappointed in you!
Servo: Is this still the Officially Sanctioned Boring Part?
. . .
Fingal: It's a good thing we don't have to like each other, isn't it? Because you're definitely not my kind of woman!
[Apollonia slaps him.]
Crow [as Fingal]: Well, now you are, actually.
. . .
Apollonia: Fingal... I want to do the right thing... I'm just not sure what that is...
Servo: Well, slapping him seemed like a good start!

[In the simulated bar "The Place", Fingal talks to bar-owner Rick.]
Rick: What're you gonna do?
Fingal: I don't know. But I've got to get the hell out of here. NoviCorp isn't helping! So I guess I'm going to have to push my own buttons for a change.
Mike: Ah, you've been doing enough of that, mister!

[Fingal is trying to write a computer program while in the computer.]
Computer: What is your access code?
Crow: Where do you want to go today? All over this movie, that's where I want to go.
Computer: Invalid access. Quit or retry?
Servo: I'll take "Quit" for 25, Alex.

[Fingal's mainframe tampering produces a snowfall inside the simulated NoviCorp building.]
Crow: The chairman's got really bad dandruff.
Mike: This is how much pure cocaine you would need to enjoy this movie.
. . .
Fingal: I'm not making this up!
Mike [as Fingal]: I'm not cleaning it up either!

Crow: So this is public television, huh? Suddenly I feel like beating the crap out of Fred Rogers.

[Apollonia is trying to convince Fingal that he shouldn't stay a dopple]
Apollonia: Dopples don't dance, they don't make love...
Crow: They're Lutherans!

[During another simulation, Fingal has been sent to the Garden of Eden.]
Mike, Crow, Servo: [singing to the background music] You can't always get what you want...
. . .
[Two tablets fall from the sky, and Fingal catches them.]
Servo [as God]: Here's some more commandments I forgot.

[Two sailors enter the club.]
Servo [as Maître D']: Ah yes, Mr. Geffen is expecting you.

Fingal: Shut up, Fat Man!
Mike [as Fingal]: You... you anteater!

[As the Fat Man leaves]
Crow [as Fat Man]: To Wendy's!

[Fingal has successfully been allowed to redistribute finance.]
Fingal: Genius. Pure Genius.
Crow: ...couldn't save this film.
. . .
[At the Fat Man's office, cards begin flying out of nowhere.]
Servo [as Fat Man]: I'm farting Monopoly cards!
Mike: Well, they're all getting credits where credits are due. [chuckles] Sorry.

[In the final confrontation scene, Fat Man pulls out a gun.]
Crow [as Fat Man]: Draw... me some butter!

Servo: People with pacemakers, do not watch Raul Julia here.

[Fingal's identicube has destructed. Both Fingal and Rick are flying through a portal.]
Mike: Vertigo to hell.
. . .
Servo: You kidding? We'll have an electron sex party right now!
. . .
[Sim-Fingal flies by, arms open.]
Mike: I love you this much!
[Sim-Rick flies by, his hands in his pockets.]
Servo: I don't care for you!

[Fingal (played by Raul Julia) finally awakes in his own body. Apollonia practically lies on him in a serious lip-lock.]
Crow: Eating Raul!

[Fingal (now Rick) is sending the chairman to rehab. Appalonia suggests "doppling" him into Daisy, the baboon Fingal was originally "doppled" as.]
Rick: Daisy's too good for the bastard. He's going on as an anteater!
Servo: Lay off the anteaters! Come on!
Crow: Man!

[Fingal and Apollonia go into yet another lip-lock in this PBS TV movie.]
Servo: Oh, and I guess "PBS" means "Public Boinking System", huh?

[At the end of the movie, all of Fingal's (now Rick's) co-workers are watching "Casablanca".]
Crow [as co-worker]: But I hate this movie. It's on AMC every week!

[The theme plays at the end.]
Mike: And now the news.
[Theme plays again.]
Mike: That was the news.

Season 9


The Projected Man

[Pearl complains to Brain Guy about the mysterious whispering in the castle.]
Observer: Well, it's not me, Pearl! I'm sensing the presence of several disembodied souls… [increasingly melodramatically] wandering these dark halls in search of surcease, an end to their endless night… a howl of quiet desperation… towards an indifferent universe. Nepenthe! Nepenthe!
Pearl: You are so gay.
Observer: I could be wrong.

[Steiner turns on the projecting machine, making numerous high-pitched sci-fi noises]
Man: What's he doing?
Crow: Oh, he's just doing his patented incredibly-annoying sound effect routine!

[Dr. Hill narrowly avoids colliding with a car outside a laboratory]
Dr. Hill: You better watch where you're going!
Dr. Mitchell: Pretty you may be!
[A security guard approaches the woman's car and murmurs something]
Crow [as Guard]: Uh, he said "Pretty you may be!", ma'am. I'm not sure what he meant!
. . .
[Dr. Hill drives away]
Servo: Uh... driving she may be!
[Dr. Hill is parking her car]
Crow: Ah parking! What a great way to establish character and create tension!
[The car's engine makes odd noises]
Mike: An exhaust system she may need!

[British scientists Steiner and Mitchell are about to project Dr. Hill's dematerialized watch. All three are dressed in white lab coats and wearing space-age protective goggles.]
Prof. Steiner: Laser Preheat!
Dr. Mitchell: Laser Pre-Heat… in!
Crow [as Prof. Steiner]: Grease and flour cake pans!
Prof. Steiner: Laser Emission Relay.
Dr. Mitchell: Laser Emission Relay… on!
Servo [as Prof. Steiner]: Bottom falling out of… plot! Movie… sucks!
Mike: Are we not blokes?
Prof. Steiner: Relay One.
Dr. Mitchell: Relay One… in!
Servo [as Prof. Steiner]: Really dumb scene… end!
[Virtually identical re-creation of projection scene.]
Crow: Yes! It's the same thing you've seen before! Only it's...happening again!

[A thief goes looking for his accomplice Gloria.]
Thief: Gloria?
Mike [as Thief]: G-L-O-R-I-A?
Thief: Gloria!
Servo [as Thief]: In excelsis Deo!
Thief: Gloria!
Crow [as Thief]: I hear they got your number.

[Police are investigating Latham's murder.]
Inspector Davis: Can I get on?
Servo: [as Dr. Mitchel] Well, he's dead, but knock yourself out.

[The movie ends with Paul destroying the laboratory, and eventually himself with the projection laser]
Crow: Well, this is kind of an ambiguous ending. Is this film horrible or did it merely suck?
Servo: Yeah! Now that I have seen it, do I want to kick a dog or a cat?
Crow: Do I want the director just killed or should he be tortured first?
Mike: Crow!
. . .
[The last shot of the movie shows the screen covered in flames.]
Crow: Ah, so the movie and all the actors in it roast in Hell!!
[Mike and the 'bots cheer loudly]

The Phantom Planet

[Over footage of an atomic bomb test]
Crow: Grandpa tried to use the microwave again.
Mike: Pat Buchanan's first day as President.

Makonnen: You know, Captain, every year of my life, I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful...
Crow [as Chapman]: Don't hit him...
Makonnen: ...if you just take the time to look at it.
Chapman: You're some guy, Makonnen.
. . .
Mike [as Makonnen]: You know, Captain...
Crow [as Chapman]: Shut up, Ray.
. . .
[Chapman has just landed his ship solo]
Mike [as Chapman] Wow, how did I manage to land without that mincing co-pilot jabbering on about the good and the beautiful?

[After losing much of his oxygen during a space walk, Frank Chapman stumbles back into the ship's cockpit in a daze.]
Servo [as Chapman, sickly]: Ohh, I'm gonna puke and it's gonna float around!

[Chapman starts having echoing auditory flashbacks to earlier parts of the movie. Mike and the Bots join the fun]
Servo: Congratulations, Ms. Astronaut, it's a boy!...boy...boy...
Mike: Wake up Frank! You wet the bed!...bed...bed...
Crow: Frank, you'll have to take third grade again!...ain...ain
Mike: Frank, this is Northwest Collection Agency. Do you value your credit rating?...rating...rating...
Crow: I'm afraid you're not 7-Eleven timber, Frank...Frank...Frank...
Servo: You're the worst party clown we ever had!...had...had...

[After shrinking out of his spacesuit and then fighting tiny people, Chapman is put on trial.]
Judge Eden: Man from Earth, you are accused of causing injury to one of our people.
Chapman: I thought I was being attacked, and I defended myself.
Servo [as Chapman]: …with courage and nudeness.

[Chapman is confused by Eden's explanation of how his ship was landed.]
Chapman: I don't understand.
Sessom: There are many things you will not understand here…
Crow [as Sessom]: …being an obvious doorknob.

[Chapman is being tried while two women stand off to the side]
Servo: Look! Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery!

[The judge speaks to the all-female jury, whose members stand single-file and are dressed in cheerleader-style skirts.]
Judge Eden: The jury will now vote and find you guilty or not guilty for inflicting injury on a Rheton man.
Servo [as Jury]: [cheering]
We find him GUILTY! GUILTY!
G-U-I-L … T-Y!
Guilty! Guilty!
G-U-I-L … T-Y!
Whoo! Yaaaay!

[Liara tells Chapman that Rheton's different atmosphere caused him to shrink.]
Liara: You see, oxygen in your atmosphere would restore you immediately to your regular size.
Crow: So people are just balloons?

Crow: You know, this is almost as good as 2001... nails driven into your eyes!

[During another flashback sequence...]
Crow: We didn't like these scenes the first time!
. . .
[The flashback includes a moment that only happened a few scenes earlier.]
Crow: No fair! You can't flash back to stuff we saw ten seconds ago!

[Lt. White, from the rescue ship, has found Chapman lying on the ground in his spacesuit.]
White: Chapman! Chapman!
Servo [as White]: You got any gum?
White: Where's Makonnen?
Chapman: He's dead. Gone.
Mike [as Chapman]: He kept yapping about beauty, so I shot him out the airlock.

[The rescue ship flies away from Rheton]
Chapman: Now they'll never believe me...
Mike [as Chapman]: [Unemotionally] I'll have to kill them all.
Kobras: Sometimes there is more truth in legend than in history.
Mike [as Kobras]: And there's more salt in ham than in turkey.

Jane: You can't hide this!
Kobras: Who is to prevent me?
Servo: A halfway smart guy with muscles and hair?

[A man is hurled out an office building window.]
Mike: We're downsizing, Steve!

[A newspaper headline is shown reading "Fourth American killed in a few days. Will there be other victims?"]
Crow: Call our 900 number and vote.

Jane: So, dinosaurs died out because they forgot how to love each other. Is that right?
Servo: In a wrong kind of way, yeah.

Vadinho: My name is Vadinho.
Crow [as Vadinho]: I'm an onion.

[Tony punches through an attic roof, which crumbles easily.]
Mike: Luckily they made their house out of peanut brittle.
Crow: So, basically, a mild rain could take out that roof.

[Tony, now Puma Man, flies through London for the first time as Vadinho watches.]
Servo: Yeah, first thing he does is poop on my car!
Crow [as Vadinho]: Look out for the-- oh, boy, right into the propellers!
Mike: They gave him the Captain Dork costume by mistake.
Crow: [Singing to the Puma Man theme music] Pu-ma Man! He flies like a moron!

[Aztec priest Vadinho advises "Puma Man" Tony on his flying powers.]
Vadinho: You do not fly, but your mind does.
Crow [as Tony]: Yeah, thanks, Castaneda.

Mike: Are criminals genetically drawn to construction sites?

Kobras: Get moving. Comb the area. Find him. Kill him.

Jane: I— I— I can't! He's commanding me from a distance.
Servo: Amelia Airhead.

[In his mansion, Kobras waxes eloquent about his world domination plans.]

Servo [as Kobras]: Stuffing or potatoes!

[After Kobras has been pronouncing "Puma" the British way the entire movie, the Satellite of Love crew finally gets tired of it.]
Kobras: You can not escape me, Pyu-ma Man!
Crow: PU-ma Man!
Mike: Oh, is that right? Dee-onald?
Kobras: You're just a small... insignificant... human being!
Servo: No, no, HOO-man being... oh, wait.

[The bad guys, having examined Tony's inert body, drive off. Tony comes out of his trance.]
Vadinho: You've succeeded! They think you're dead, and now they will leave you alone.
Mike: To be left alone— the goal of every great hero!

[As Tony is nowhere to be seen, Vadinho beats the snot out of Kobras' henchmen.]
Crow: So, basically, the hero is this guy. I think it's time we all face that fact.

[Vadinho has gone aboard the alien space craft and it goes off into the sun set.]
Mike: And we hear the dim cry of an anal probe.


[Mike drops a ladder into Castle Forrester, where Pearl, Bobo and the Observer are having their breakfast]
Mike: I am entering the actual structure now. It appears to be a barn of some sort, or it... no, it's an eatery. It is an eatery. I will approach one of the patrons and attempt to gather information on my... whereabouts...
Pearl: [Looking at the back of her cereal box] Brain Guy.
Observer: Yeah. [Summons a cannon which points at Mike]
Mike: Ahh! OK, I'll get back up and watch my movie, wh- ah... which is, uh, what again?

Crow: You can't say that! You're gonna get in trouble! That's a really stupid joke, and I'm gonna tell Mike!
Servo: Ha-ha, I don't care, what's Mike gonna do, anyway? [laughs]
[Mike enters.]
Mike: Hey, guys.
Servo: [screams] YAH!
Crow: Mike, the title came up and it said Werewolf, and then Servo said "I don't know, you had him last!" And...and I...I think that was a really stupid joke...
Mike: [chuckles] Ah, well, that's pretty funny, I like that!
Servo: Thank you!
Crow: [backpedaling] Heeeey, that's what I meant! I...I like it.
[Mike finishes chuckling]
Crow: [sighs, defeated] Good one, Servo.
Servo: [gloating] Well, thank you! [chuckles]

Natalie: Really? What's the subject matter?
Crow [as Paul]: You're right. The subject doesn't matter at all!
Mike: Heh, good one!

[In the lab, a grandmother-like Noel (Richard Lynch) stalls English-impaired Natalie.]
Natalie: What are you hiding from me, Noel? Tell me the truth!

Crow: Well, pick up your feet next time, you big- [notices Mike's new features] hey. Say Mike, theres something about you, I don't know, but suddenly you are very, very handsome man!
Mike: Really?
Crow: Yeah. I can't believe I never noticed how striking you are! I mean, you are a god!
[while Mike is flattered with Crow's complements, Tom enters and yells at Mike's new look]
Mike: Wha- what?!
Servo: Mike, look at your hands! Feel your head!
Mike: [Mike does so] So I have claws and a net. What's the bi.. [voice suddenly starts to sound like Crow] Hey! Wait a minute!
Crow: Ah, when you stupidly fell on me, some of my essence must've mingled with your essence.
Servo: Blech! Don't say essence!
Mike: Yeah, you know what? I am beginning to look and feel like you, and you know what I'm...
Crow: [choruses with Mike] Perfectly comfortable with that. Yes, that's exactly what I said!

Coroner: Is there anything you can tell this court which would help it to establish the exact cause of your wife's death?
