!!The Segments

[[folder: Prologue ]]

* Joel teaches the Bots proper posture, which leads to the crowning of the king and queen of posture. As the he and the Bots leave for commercial sign, a shadowed figure appears and attacks Cambot and Magic Voice.


[[folder: Segment 1 ]]

* Crow introduces the dark stranger, Timmy, to the Joel and Servo. The Mads present the Big Checkbook as their invention for this week. Joel shows off sneakers that squirt out cheese, perfect for post race snaking.


[[folder: Segment 2 ]]

* Joel helps Servo with the art of double entendres. Timmy suggest dirtier ones to Crow, much to great disapproval.


[[folder: Segment 3 ]]

* Inspired by today's film, Joel invents Twin Screw Universal Controller. Crow gets blamed for Timmy's actions, despite his objections. As Joel demonstrates the controller, Timmy screws around with it, ending up with Joel roasting Servo over a pit.


[[folder: Segment 4 ]]

* After Servo gets attacked by Timmy in the theater, Joel and Crow go out and help him. On the bridge Servo is cocooned on the wall begging for death while Crow fights Timmy. Joel arrives to attack Timmy with a broom and send him off the airlock. Relived from the specter, Joel apologizes to Crow for today's turn of events.


[[folder: Segment 5 ]]

* Joel helps through the Bots' trauma of the film's padding and Timmy through letter readings. Back in Deep 13, Frank adopts Timmy, but is greeted with a finger bite.

!!The [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] presentation provides examples of:
* BiggerIsBetter[=/=]GiantNoveltyCheck: Dr. Forrester's invention exchange, the Big Big Checkbook.
* [[CameraAbuse Cambot Abuse]]: Timmy attacks Cambot in the opening segment and shakes him around as the image cuts to static. Cambot's POV is askew in the next segment until Joel fixes him.
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: After Crow invokes this by its former name (during a blatantly {{fanservice}}y dance number), Tom pipes in with:
-->'''Tom:''' [singing] Watching Underoos is fun! I can see the dancers' buns!
* ContinuityNod:
** When Joel is introducing the new Twin Screw Universal Controller, he explains that it controls the ''ten''perature...which is a reference to one of the (poorly labeled) gauges on the ship in ''Film/FugitiveAlien''.
** In the opening segment, Joel checks the Bot's posture, announcing that they were going to crown a "King and Queen of Posture", a reference to the "Posture Pals" short that aired with ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S03E20TheUnearthly The Unearthly]]''.
--->'''Servo''': Couldn't I just be an earl, or a ''dauphin'' of posture?\\
'''Crow''': I'd rather marry into posture.
** In the closing segment, after Joel has lifted the Bots' spirits, he boasts to the Mads that they've survived ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S03E14MightyJack Mighty Jack]]'', ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S03E23TheCastleOfFuManchu The Castle of Fu Manchu]]'', ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S03E10FugitiveAlien Fugitive Alien]]'', and ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S02E09TheHellcats The Hellcats]]''.
* DarkIsEvil: Timmy. The Timmy puppet is actually Crow's body double for the movie theater scenes.
* DevilInPlainSight: Timmy the [[EvilTwin Dark Crow]]. Only Servo is wise to Timmy's antics, and Joel seems particularly oblivious. It's not until Servo is kidnapped by Timmy that Joel and Crow decide to take action.
* DoorstopBaby: After Timmy is jettisoned from the SOL he's adopted as one of these by Frank... and promptly bites one of his fingers off.
* DoubleEntendre: parodied:
-->Say, does this TV have a ''remote''?\\
As far as ''I'' know, Lincoln's not president any more!\\
She came home from the store, with a bag of apples... and a loaf of ''bread''!\\
And now a ''word'' from our ''sponsor''! POOM!
** Crow doesn't quite get the concept after he's suggested some particularly lewd ones by Timmy.
--->'''Crow:''' Grind her in der hi--\\
'''Joel & Tom:''' CROW!\\\
'''Crow:''' She's built like a brick sh--\\
'''Joel:''' Crow!\\
'''Crow:''' [[LastSecondWordSwap --showboat.]]
* EvilTwin[=/=]ShadowArchetype: Timmy.
* {{Frameup}}: Timmy pushes Crow into Joel and gets Crow gets blamed for it. And Joel ''still'' doesn't believe that this [[DevilinPlainSight dark spectre]] is being mean to the robot that ''he'' created. All is forgiven in the following host segment, though.
* GenreBlind: Joel, big time.
* GoToYourRoom: Joel sends Crow to his cubicle for a five-minute "time-out" after Timmy shoves Crow into him.
* ITasteDelicious: Timmy fools with Joel's new [[AppliedPhlebotinum Twin-Screw Universal Controller]], leading to (among other things) Joel roasting Servo on a rotisserie spit:
-->'''Servo:''' Joel, if you don't mind, I'm cooking here...I'm beginning to smell delicious...
* MercyKill: Cocooned Servo begs Joel to kill him. He continues the request after Timmy's been dealt with.
-->'''Joel:''' Oh, I'll ''kill'' you alright...
* MoodWhiplash: Oh, ''boy'', that part towards the penultimate host segment. At first it's all funny, with the guys watching the movie and making jokes on it. Then Timmy enters the theater... and sits there with them. Then he disappears and reappears in the seats several times. It changes to being quite darkly funny when he keeps biting and headbutting Servo, who gets more and more annoyed until he charges at him, and offscreen you can hear a scuffle and even Tom's 'I'm choking! I'm choking!' is still darkly funny, as is when Joel and Crow notice what's happening and Joel accidentally calls the EvilTwin 'Tommy'. Then you hear Tom's muffled sobs and screams for help, and the mood changes back to terrifying again as he's dragged from the theater. And ''then'' the mood goes straight back to humorous again as Timmy is defeated and even as Tom is encased in a pseudopod. ''Whew!''
* NightmareFuel: [[invoked]] The [=MST3K=] presentation had Timmy.
* [[NotNowKiddo Not Now, Servo]]
* {{Padding}}: "Pad, pad, pad the film! Pad, pad, pad the film!" [[invoked]]
* PropRecycling: [[invoked]] "Timmy" is actually the Crow that sits in the theater (which is painted black to prevent artifacts if the shiny gold finish reflects light.) Servo is also painted black, which is why viewers can't see through his dome while in the theater.
* RealityWarper: The Twin-Screw Universal Controller can do anything (with just two levers)!
* RunningGag: Every appearance of distant sparkling stars in the film is met with references to ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''.
* ScreamDiscretionShot: From Tom as he's being abducted by Timmy. Justified as the struggle takes place under the seats and the camera is still directly focused on the movie and the silhouettes that are superimposed in front of it, reacting to the events taking place in the theater.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Crow recognizes the StockFootage of the rocket, in particular the landing sequence with patently see-thru trees.
-->'''Crow''': What the -- ''Film/KingDinosaur''? That's from '''King Dinosaur'''! I'm leaving!
-->''[Joel [[DefiedTrope grabs him to prevent him from leaving]].]''
-->'''Crow''': Grrr... under protest.
* ShoutOut:
** Crow first describes Timmy in terms that Regan referred to [[Film/TheExorcist Captain Howdy]].
** The final battle with Timmy the Dark Crow references both ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' and ''Hercules And The Captive Women''.
--->'''Joel:''' Let go of him, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch you bitch]]!
** The inner mouth coming out of Timmy's beak at the end when he bites Frank is also a reference to ''Film/{{Aliens}}''.
** Joel quotes "Step Right Up" from ''Music/SmallChange'', by Music/TomWaits, in a sketch.
** During the [[DoAnythingRobot Do Anything Lever]] sketch, listen closely to Joel, and you'll realize he says "It controls the ''te'''n'''preture''", a call back to the [[BlindIdiotTranslation Engrish]] control panel labels in the ''Film/FugitiveAlien'' movies from the previous season.
** Tom trapped in an avocado-like pod begging (hilariously) to be killed is another CallBack to Season 1 and the 'Avocado Man' from ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S01E10RobotHolocaust Robot Holocaust]]''. Tom's death pleas could also double as a CallBack to ''Hercules and the Captive Women'', as there was a woman in a similar situation in that movie.
** A bit of FridgeBrilliance[[invoked]]: the inclusion of Timmy is a shout out to ''Fire Maidens'' itself! They wanted to have a dark creature lurking about, just like in the movie!
** During the sequence when the astronauts follow the female alien, Joel and the Bots begin singing a very slow version of Boots Randolph's "Yakety Sax", acknowledging that the scene is playing out like a chase scene from ''Series/TheBennyHillShow'', but in slow motion rather than under cranked.
** The "Not Me!" issues of ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus'' were parodied; Joel calls the 'bots out on it.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Joel and the Bots are joined by Timmy in one theater segment, with unfortunate results.
* SpaceIsNoisy: Especially during the "dodging meteoroids" scene: "You know, I definitely hear a bowling alley."
-->'''Crow''': There's traffic in space!
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: InUniverse, Joel and the bots lament at how one-dimensional the Creature is and openly wish he was really a good guy just to have some kind of {{Deconstruction}} within the film in hopes to make ''anything'' about it interesting.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Again, Joel, who refuses to believe that Timmy is evil, and whenever Crow and Servo try to warn him, he basically tells them to shut up. Then, after Timmy's nature is revealed and he's defeated, he berates Crow for letting him on the ship in the first place. He does forgive him, though.
* WhoAreYou: Screamed by Frank at the conclusion when Timmy bites off a finger.
* WithLyrics: [[{{Padding}} "Pad, pad, pad the film! Pad, pad, pad the film!"]]
