-->'''Green''': Well, I'll explain it to you. (''[=McGuillicutty=]'s head drops in shame'') On first base is Hu. Samuel Hu. You're probably not used to that name, 'cause his grandfather was Chinese. On second base is Hector Watt, W-A-T-T, Watt [''[=McGuillicutty=] does a {{Facepalm}}''], and that's not such an unusual name 'cause James Watt invented the steam engine. And on third base is Phil Iduno, I-D-U-N-O, Iduno, but if you say that fast, it does sound like the phrase "gee, Idunno". But it's actually Idunno, ''Phil'' Idunno.

* InsaneTrollLogic: In one sketch, a guy has an argument with his wife and she locks him out of the hose and refuses to let him back in. He wins the argument by declaring that from now on the inside of the house is the outside and the outside of the house is the inside, which makes ''her'' the one who's locked out. She protests, but he says that the house is in his name so he can do whatever he wants. So she actually [[CrowningMomentOfFunny goes along with this and starts demanding that he let her in.]]

Initiated and produced by ''SNL'' mastermind Lorne Michaels, ''The Kids In The Hall'' is often credited with kick-starting the AlternativeComedy boom of the 90s.
