Welcome to ''You Don't Know Jack'', the game series where high culture and pop culture collide. I'm [[GameShowHost your host]] [[TheVoice Cookie Masterson]], and I'm very excited to have you onboard today... is what I would say if I were an activity director on a cruise liner. But I'm not. Now pay attention.

Added DiffLines:

** Schmitty has a tendency to refer to pretty much everyone as "my close, personal friend(s)". This generally extends to anyone that Schmitty has no actual chance of knowing, be it because they're from a place he's never been or because the person in question is long dead.


Added DiffLines:

** {{Lampshaded}} in The Bottom of ''The Ride'':
--> '''Nate:''' And how about all those fantastic hours sitting in a small, dark soundbooth reading the same damn thing over and over again? (Mockingly) "And the category is...", "And here's your category...", "And this category's about...", like it's all spontaneous or something.
--> '''Cookie:''' Pfft, yeah, what a crock.
--> '''Schmitty:''' No kiddin'.

Added DiffLines:

* MadLibsDialogue: Due to the "Interactive Conversation" nature of the games, dialogue is sometimes delivered like this:
** Rules spiels often combine pre-recorded "common" bits with question-specific bits. This is most evident in Dis or Dats, which have to have slightly different rules depending on what the answers are, as well as which platform the game is being played on.
--> '''Cookie:''' If it's [choice], press [button]. If it's [other choice], press [other button].
** This sort of dialogue is also used very liberally in ''The Ride'', in plenty of places. The elevator sign-in host is the most obvious, as her dialogue is very clearly pieced together from different takes. Within the game, floors may have slightly different introductions depending on your answer to the Moral Dilemma question. Certain random pieces of dialogue may be added depending on your performance during the game. Hosts may even read out specific dollar values during question intros.
** Categories are usually introduced like this, with each part randomly chosen from a set:
--> '''Host:''' The category is... [Category]. And it's worth $x,000.
** ''5th Dementia'' takes takes it a step further by having all dollar amounts be read aloud by Schmitty, being Mad Libs-ed in by necessity.

** ''2011'' manages to do this with a ''question number animation''. [[spoiler:The lead 4 the "everybody cuatro" 4s is suddenly gunned down. This leads to a mini-story arc in subsequent games, witch contains an "f" as TheOtherDarrin]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRfV_GH9pmc See it for yourself.]]

* [[HoYay Les Yay]]: [[Invoked]] Several installments include commercials for a barely fictional [=TV=] show called "[[XenaWarriorPrincess Xenora: Queen of Battle]]". In each commercial, Xenora and her sidekick get into a very suggestive situation.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: In the Facebook version, the audio ad for Warehouse Supply Warehouse states the place to be located off I-17, which runs in Arizona between Phoenix and Flagstaff. The video ad, however, gives a 312 area code, placing it in the [[TheWindyCity Chicago]] area.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: One of the commercials is for "Movie Ending Phone", a hotline that tells you the endings to various films. The endings to ''Film/TheUsualSuspects'', ''Film/{{Se7en}}'', ''Film/{{Fargo}}'', ''Film/PrimalFear'', ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'', ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'', ''Film/CitizenKane'' and ''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'' are casually spoiled. The ad does have the courtesy of not explicitly mentioning which movies they're for, though.

** Aided by the lack of audio, the ad for Chocky's Choco-Cherry Dingle Doodys comes off as [[SubvertedKidsShow a bit more X-rated]].
** Buster's Bait Shop: Master baiters since 1923. (Outtakes have Tom "Cookie" Gottlieb laughing after saying this.)

** The finale of ''The Ride'', which is itself presented in a creepy manner, features the elevator getting broke down, Nate getting stuck on the aforementioned [[ArcWords Bottom]], [[spoiler:meeting all the previous hosts of ''The Ride'' stacked up with snacks, TV set, shower and a merry-go-round, and choosing what kind of [[ToiletHumor assy joke]] or [[BitingTheHandHumor eff-you executives speech]] they have to do before the game quits to Windows.]]

* {{Squick}}: Commercials featuring [[OnlyOneName Tammy]], a NightmareFetishist parody of 976 phone-sex lines.
** 976-WART has Tammy teasing her warts and moles.
** 976-CORN then has her wanting callers to [[IKissYourFoot slobber over her feet]] that are rife with undesirable bunions and corns.
** Finally comes 1-900-TUNA, where Tammy is sitting on the toilet after eating eight tuna sandwiches [[WayPastTheExpirationDate with expired mayonnaise]].



* TalkingToHimself: Many of the voice-over artists do this during in the commercials.



* WhatTheHellPlayer: On a Gibberish or an Anagram Question the first player to buzz in and type [[ClusterFBomb "fuck you"]] will lose an ungodly amount of money (minimum of 50,000, maximum of whatever drains your score to zero, and if the game feels like screwing with you, it'll then take another 100,000 out, leaving you with at most -100,000), and may even get a pretty embarassing name. The second person to buzz in and type "fuck you" will have absolutely nothing happen to them, because, as the host claims, they are neither creative, nor original, nor funny, and thus don't deserve to have anything special happen to them, but will get the host very angry, [[TemptingFate If the third person buzzes in and types "fuck you"]], then the host will [[RageQuit walk away in anger]] and finally [[NonstandardGameOver the game quits to the desktop. Don't try to hit Escape either to pause the game, that will get even more out of your host in either more rage, or more indiffernece to the fact that the game is over]].
** Also works in single-player mode, however. Just finish enough rounds to get to three consecutive Gibberish Questons without ending the game and the result will be the same as if three seperate people shot off their [[ClusterFBomb F-Bombs]]
