[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 1/Invention Exchange ]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 2 ]]

* The reporter in the film was incredibly insensitive to Glen's fiancée about his condition, so Joel asks the 'Bots for ways to fix that. They don't really cooperate. It leaks over to Joel's own condition.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 3 ]]

* Joel takes a turn as the Amazing Colossal Man while Crow and Tom study him. Once again, they don't really cooperate.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 4 ]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 5 ]]

* Joel and the 'Bots muse over what they would do if they were giants. They try to abide by a fan letter's request to extend the show, but it only adds about four seconds. Dr. Forrester sticks Frank with a giant needle when he likewise drifts into imagining life as a giant.


!!The ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation contain examples of:
* BadBadActing: Joel as the Fifty Foot Man. "Ah! ::weakly punches the ground:: No!"
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The first day after Glenn's nuked, when a nurse checks his bandages south of the equator and suddenly runs off in a panic:
-->'''Servo:''' Well, ''something's'' much bigger than she expected!
** Glenn's fiancee: "[[HotSkittyOnWailordAction I'm still looking forward to our wedding night]]!"
** The title's displayed, one word at a time -- ''The... Amazing... Colossal... Man'':
--->'''Crow:''' Oh, yeah, you ''wish''!
* OverlyLongGag: The guys bizarrely make the exact same joke three times in a row, regarding make-up being tested on rabbits. Though Crow's rabbit voice on the last one saves it a bit.
* RunningGag: Crow and Servo making insensitive food-related riffs in regard to the burned/disfigured Glenn, and equally insensitive size-related comments after he starts to grow.
** And the Yul Brynner jokes about Glenn's baldness.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot[[invoked]]: During the host segment, the crew state that Glenn could've had a far more fun rampage.
