* Putting a wedge on the front of a dump truck and plowing through two lines of cars in 'Hollywood Crash Cliches'. The truck barely slows down, there's cars flying everywhere (several doing full rolls), and Adam and Jamie are left in adrenaline-fueled hysterics.

* Putting a cowcatcher wedge on the front of a dump truck and plowing through two lines of cars in 'Hollywood Crash Cliches'. The truck barely slows down, there's cars flying everywhere (several doing full rolls), and Adam and Jamie are left in adrenaline-fueled hysterics. As Adam describes it afterwards, the cars behaved almost exactly like the wake of a boat - but instead of water, it's a wake of 60,000 pounds of steel.



* Movie and TV-based myths are usually pretty unrealistic, but all of the ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' myths they tested got at ''least'' a "plasuable". Adam finally managing using a whip to swing over a chasm was especially epic.

* When the mythbusters are testing a car hood-mounted machine gun, Adam is skeptical. He doesn't think that the fixed machine gun seen in the movies will be able to hit anything (he has better hopes for a moveable one, though). And for the first part of the test, it performs exactly as he expects. And then he discovers that he can use the car's controls to 'steer', using the brakes to aim up or down. He starts ''nailing'' Jamie after that, and the moveable gun performs even better.

* In the show's final episode, the Mythbusters decide to give Buster the Mythbusters equivalent of a VikingFuneral: Dress him up as a super hero, put him on a rocket sled, and fire him into a wall at 800 miles per hour. The highspeed footage shows Buster disintegrating on impact. Or rather, ascending into Valhalla.

Before they reviewed the highspeed, it looked for a minute like we were headed into NeverFoundTheBody territory.

** And let's not forget the buildup to Adam's official plow down Mythbuster Memory Lane: Adam slowly building up to speed in the Ultra Wedge Truck as the opening to ''[[{{Music/Europe}} The Final Countdown]]'' plays proudly and dramatically. Longtime fans likely got chills up their spine as the truck got ready, and this Troper actually sang and played along as the song built up. Too bad it didn't play through the whole sequence...
