- Early-Installment Weirdness: The only episode in which the theater is actually called the "Mystery Science Theater."

- Gretzky Has the Ball: A riff involving Rod being dropped off at the club by an old guy in a ballcap.
Tom (as Rod): "Hey, thanks for the ride, Mr. Lasorda!"
Joel (as Lasorda): "Now remember! Just a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, then a sensible—"
Tom (as Rod): "Yeah, whatever. Good luck with the football team, or whatever it is you do."
- Running Gag (in future experiments): "That square bugs me... he really bugs meee!!!" and "You and your friends are the only creeps in this place!"
- Russian Reversal:
(Inviting Rod to crash at their shack) It's not very much, but it's, uh, what we call home. Joel:
call home, Rambo
