'''Film watched''': Film/OverdrawnAtTheMemoryBank

This episode was hard to do, as the Brains explained that Raul Julia died three years prior. Nevertheless, they did the episode anyway due to the film's incoherent {{Technobabble}}.

!!The Segments:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Prologue ]]

* Crow has boxes of T-shirts with his classic catchphrase "You Know You Want Me, Baby!" around the bridge, which confuses Mike.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 1 ]]

* Mike tries his hand at catchphrases, but all his choices are lame. Pearl starts Public Pearl TV as a way to suck money from gullible liberal donors. Servo is convinced and calls for the free tote bag from Public Pearl. "The Nature of Bobo" is played, with Brain Guy running commentary while Bobo eats.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 2 ]]

* Crow and Servo get a monkey, which they named Henry Kissinger, from "instant monkeys online". Henry, loose on the SOL, throws stuff on Mike's "threatening" stances. He calls Henry down, but the two Bots ditch Mike by Commercial Sign, leading to more thrown stuff.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 3 ]]

* Mike still has stuff thrown from Henry. Meanwhile, Public Pearl previews Pearl's program, "Pearl! Pearl! Pearl! Pearl! Pearl!" She sings "When Loving Lovers Love" with Brain Guy.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 4 ]]

* Servo dopples himself into the Nanite world, but ends up in a bad part of town. Nano-Servo then gets beat up by two Nanite mooks.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 5 ]]

* Bobo is brought aboard to help with Henry throwing problems. Mike then uses a blowgun on the simians, much to Crow and Servo's objections. The Public Pearl TV scam is successful for Pearl, with her rolling in the dough.

!!The ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation has examples of:
* AffectionateParody: "Public Pearl" is either this or a TakeThat (or perhaps both) to Creator/{{PBS}}.
* CatchPhrase: Crow suddenly declares his is "You know you want me, baby!" to justify a huge T-shirt order. Mike tries to pick one out for himself, and fails.
** Mike: "We're all out of toner!" "Don't run on my wet floor!" "Secretary please read the minutes, uh..." "Let go of it slappy![[note]]Mike is bungling Crow's suggestion of "Kiss off, Slappy!"[[/note]]"
** ForcedMeme: The sketch was based on the official fan club having problems selling those shirts, because they used the line instead of one of Crow's ''actual'' catch phrases.
* CallBack:
** "Hey, it's TV's Frank!"
** One of Pearl's network's shows is "Mike Nelson: Lord Of The Dance" based on the opening host segment of the ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S08E13JackFrost Jack Frost]]'' episode, complete with footage.
** The song that plays before Pearl's show starts is the MST Hour theme.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment:
--> '''Pearl''': And now, a very special preview of a special pledge week special.
** And, of course, the name of the song that follows: "When Loving Lovers Love".
* {{Earworm}}:
** The ''instant monkeys online'' jingle. Mike is humming it while looking around to locate Daisy.
-->'''Servo:''' ''Get your monkeys - instantly - with instant monkeys online!''
** The music played in the early scenes with Final walking around his workplace also seems to be this; Mike hums along the first time it's played, and when it gets played the second time he and the 'bots start singing "So Happy Together" over the surprisingly fitting base track.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Inspired by Daisy the Baboon, the 'bots order a monkey they name Henry Kissinger ("because of his scowl/scalp"). Mike gets to spend the remaining host segments trying to placate the off-screen ape as it hurls objects at him.
** Things get worse when Bobo, who was originally brought up to talk her down, thinks hurling objects from the rafters is a ''good'' idea.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: During the movie, Fingal observes some monkeys cartwheeling down a hill and remarks that it looks like fun. Crow responds "Actually, that ''does'' look like fun, Mike. If I could do that, I'd basically never stop."
* FantasticRacism: Some of Mike and the bots' riffs suggest that this movie really seems to have something against anteaters.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
-->'''Fingal:''' I'm interfaced!
-->'''Servo:''' BFD!
* GiganticGulp: Bobo drinks from one during the WildlifeCommentarySpoof "The Nature of Bobo".
* HilariousInHindsight: ''[=MST3K=]'' is [[http://www.current.org/2015/01/programmers-apt-marketplace-choices-include-aussie-romantic-drama-and-mst3k/ heading]] to public television. [[invoked]]
** And, Mike, Kevin and Bill did later get to tackle ''{{Casablanca}}'' by itself.
* InherentlyFunnyWords: "Fingal."
** "You want to tinkle, Fingal? How 'bout some Pringles, Fingal?"
** "You make me tingle, Fingal. Fingal, are you single? Give me a jingle."
** "I've got spurs that Jingle Jangle Jingle."
** "Please, I can see your little Fingal."
** "I wouldn't want to bungle or bobble the Fingal dopple."
* LastSecondWordSwap: "What was he doing in this piece of ssssurely very quality, quality program"
* LateToThePunchline: "Oh I get it, 'cause they're wearing ''hats''!"
* LaughTrack: Servo tries to provide one for Crow's new CatchPhrase (see above). The tape player doesn't work very well.
* {{Mondegreen}}
--> '''Fingal''': Mom... 'm I nuts?
--> '''Servo''': "My nuts"?
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: According to the ''Amazing Colossal Episode Guide'', the crew consciously worked to avoid offending people by insulting the recently late Raul Julia, the only quality actor in the whole film. Even Pearl herself calls him "a very wonderful actor" before asking "what was he doing in this piece of [[LastSecondWordSwap ssssssurely]] very quality, quality program".
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: When Fingal enters "The Place"
-->'''Crow:''' Hey, a midget rabbi cowboy!
-->'''Servo:''' Libby I Oy vey!
* NotableOriginalMusic / SillyLoveSongs: Pearl and Brain Guy's wonderful duet, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwELovShqqs Loving Lovers' Love]]".
** [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment "And loving lovers love as loving lovers love..."]]
--->'''Pearl:''' I really do like... pie...
--->'''Observer:''' I know... a couple guys, I... ''(Observer looks frustrated and ready to give up the LyricalShoehorn)''
--->'''Pearl:''' They really do like pie.
*** ShownTheirWork: They basically nail those musical specials shown on PBS during the 80's.
* OffhandBackhand: Bobo delivers one to Observer during the "Nature of Bobo" documentary.
* {{Pun}}:
** Mike groans in anticipation of Servo's "Cube-an" joke.
** Mike's one to talk; his "Figleaf of my imagination" gag went over just slightly better.
** Servo lets out a stilted, fake "Ha ha ha that is funny" in response to the movie's very ''title''.
** Fingal to Apollonia,
-->'''Fingal:''' [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Here's looking at you kid.]]
-->'''Crow:''' Here's looking at [[UsefulNotes/UnitedNations U Thant]].
-->'''Servo:''' Here's looking at ubiquitous.
-->'''Mike:''' Here's looking at ''Literature/{{Ulysses}}''.
* ProductPLacement: The aforementioned "You Know You Want Me Baby!" shirts, made by the fan club.
* RunningGag: Fingal's hatred of anteaters.
** A lot of fat and food jokes are made about the obese villain.
* ScrewYourself: Fingal encounters Rick!Fingal,
-->'''Crow:''' I'm gonna score with me tonight!
* ShoutOut:
** When Fingal tells his blonde coworker he's bored of sex with her, Crow remarks, "So that's why you kept shouting out Creator/WilliamHurt's name!", a reference to ''Literature/KissOfTheSpiderWoman''.
** "''Series/DoctorWho''...the hell cares?" The line occurs during a shot of a spinning cube, referencing the season-long "Key of Time" story arc.
*** During a shot of a similar multicolored cube, Servo says that it must be Christmas on the [[Franchise/StarTrek Borg]] ship.
** A shot of the rehab facility with [[Music/{{Nirvana}} NIRVANA]] visibly written on the floor immediately draws a riff of "Come, as you are, to my mall, to my atrium, yeah yeah!"
** [[Music/PinkFloyd "I'll see you on]] [[Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon the dark side of Raul!"]]
** The bad part of the Nanite world has "[[http://wwwwwwwww.jodi.org/ Jodi]]" graffitied on the ground.
** When the villain enters a bar in the climax, they hum the theme to ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''... replacing the last three notes with belches and fart noises.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Crow - "Wanda Cannon? Now that's a porno name if I've ever heard one... not that I've ever heard one. I don't subscribe to lots of publications or anything."
* TakeThat:
** When Apollonia[=/=]Fingal's Mom avatar dies.
-->'''Crow:''' Someone beat up George Will!
-->'''Servo:''' Good!
-->'''Mike:''' Yes.
* WildlifeCommentarySpoof: Brain Guy attempts to study Bobo in this manner during a clip from the [[ShowWithinAShow Public Pearl TV program "The Nature of Bobo"]]. The joke is that Bobo is doing some very urbane things.
* WondrousLadiesRoom: Invoked when Fingal opens a door and sudden finds himself in a sumptuous villa's courtyard, to talk to the Chairman's digital avatar. The 'Bots conclude he's in the Ladies' Room.
