** In his Film/MrMagoo review, he observes the scene where Magoo tries to rip off the MrBean cooking scene as he cooks a roast chicken to instructions on the TV.

How long until he switches to the porno channel?"

* The CutawayGag is often seen in long-form {{Improv}} comedy shows. Sometimes when two players are doing a scene, a third player will tag one of them out and do a short scene with the other player about something that had just been mentioned, after which the player who was tagged out tags back in and resumes the original scene.
