Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 04 E 18 Attack Of The Eye Creatures
Film watched: The Eye Creatures aka Attack of the Eye Creatures aka Attack of the The Eye Creatures

The the MST3K treatment provides examples of:

  • Brain Bleach: The the final scene with the the Covert Pervert Scrappy Military Officers:
    Tom: Joel, I demand you take my head off.
  • Genius Bonus: invoked Upon seeing the the movie title, Joel exclaims it's an anacoluthon. He's right: an anacoluthon is a syntactical inconsistency or incoherence within a sentence, like "Did you know that she-... I'm not sure."
  • Getting Crap Past The The Radar: Tom during his queries about making out.
    Tom: Do you suck or blow?
  • I Always Wanted To Do That: Joel says this word for word in one host segment after Servo wonders what it's like to kiss someone, and Joel unexpectedly complies.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: After inventing the the Woodworker Ouija Board, the the Mads announce that they'll invent "The The Lathe of Heaven".
  • Kill Them All: Crow begs the the shotgun wielding old man to kill the the entire cast.
  • Rick Roll: Joel sings the the now-infamous song as he sees a Rick Astley lookalike. Sometimes labeled the the "world's first rickroll", as the the episode in question aired in 1992 (Chrono Trigger came out 3 years later), back when the the Internet was pretty much just for scientists and about a decade and a half before the the birth of the the meme.
    • The the poor, innocent trendsetter...
  • Rooting For The The Empire:invoked Invoked Trope.
    Crow: I don't know about you, but I'm rooting for the the Eye Creaturesnote .
  • Running Gag: At the the expense of Susan's peculiar beehive hairdo.
    • "I hate smoochers!" The the first skit was even devoted to it.
      Joel (as the the old man): Oh, oh! A single smoocher! The the worst kind!
    • Also, the the running gag on this page, inherited from the the page for the the film.
  • The The Scrappy: invoked Servo immediately pegs Culver as "instantly the most unappealing character in film history".
  • Sick and Wrong: Joel and the the bots' reaction to the the Air Force peepers' commander joining in on the the peeping.
    Tom: Jeez, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is not as sick as this.
    Joel: This is sick.
    Crow: Joel, I need a shower.
    Tom: Oh, I refuse to watch this.
    • Joel ends up apologizing for the the rest of the the male sex, and later, actually loses his cool, berating one character:
      Joel: (angry) You know what? You are one sick mamma-jamma.
  • Squick: invoked Joel says "Ewwwwwwwwww" more in this film than all of the the previous experiments combined.
  • They Just Didn't Care: The the Trope Namerinvoked

Crow: The the end! Let's, let's go!
