Tom and Crow have built another fort, this time up in the ventilation ducts. Gypsy's far too big to fit inside, though.
Segment 1/Invention Exchange
Joel reverse-engineered the See & Say toy to create the Aunt Catherine Wheel, to help children learn about extended family. Frank sports the Drinking Jacket, which comes with liquor-hiding pockets and is covered in its own DTs.
Joel is suddenly dangling from the ceiling by one arm and pleads with the 'Bots to save him. Blackmail swiftly ensues.
Joel asks the 'Bots who are some singers they would like to see fall from a lighthouse, acting them out with little dolls. Kenny Rogers was bad enough to be recommended twice.
Tom and Crow use Vi's talking head routine on Joel, but he just takes their bodies and walks off in response.
Driven to despair by the film's bleak tone, Joel gets everyone singing a happy song to combat it. Frank joins in with a song about how he's gonna be best friends with the 'Bots, and Dr. Forrester retaliates with a live grenade.
The MST3K presentation provides examples of:
Long List: What famous singers would you like to see plunge from a lighthouse?
Monochrome Casting: Memorably mocked by Crow: "It's a jazz musician's party and there's not one black person here!"
Running Gag: "Sessions presents...!" during the numerous, interminable padding shots of lighthouses and beaches, with impressions of famous easy-listening artists to fill out the time left in each scene.
