Recap / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 04 E 23 Bride Of The Monster
(short) Part 1 and
Bride of the Monster The presentation of MST3K Bride of the Monster features: Bottomless Magazines: Lampshaded by Crow. How many shots does he have? Brain Bleach/ Ho Yay: Crow has sexual dreams fantasizing about Tom in a nurse's outfit. Both Crow and Tom (who happens to be dressed as a nurse) scream when Crow wakes up and sees Tom. Call Back: A couple to the short "Hired!", the first part of which was shown with this film in the MST3K presentation. No, I don't want to buy a Chevrolet! Call Forward: The third host segment involves Crow, dressed as Willy the Waffle, showing Servo what life would be like without advertising. This is a parody of , which wouldn't be featured on the show until the A Case of Spring Fever . tenth season Running Gag: Jokes about the police chief's pet bird. Hulk Speak regarding Lobo. In one scene, a secretary's pencil on her ear keeps disappearing and reappearing, due to bad continuity. Crow calls attention to it every time. In another scene, Janet is served food by Dr. Vornoff. Joel and the bots make quite a few jokes about Lobo being the waiter. Take That:
Crow: Lobo take classes as DeVry. Wholesome Crossdresser: Tom, of course. Servo:
Joel, this nurse's outfit makes me very self-conscious and embarrassed - and yet, I don't seem to mind.
Weird. The MST3K presentation of Hired Part 1 features: All Musicals Are Adaptations: Hired! The Musical Angry Mob Song: "Can't you see we're trying to tell you NO!" Artistic License – Economics: "Uncle Sam's gonna need cars! Why, selling Chevrolets is gonna help the war effort! Don't ya see, Dad? Come on everybody!" BSOD Song: "Zeroes... Zeroes... None of my salesmen / has ever sold a car..." Failure Is the Only Option: Servo: I'd like to make a sale, but what can I do? I'm gonna be a failure just like yoooou, dad! Crow: Like me? Servo: That's right! I'm gonna be a failure just like yoooooooooou! Gecko Ending: Joel and the 'Bots make up an ending of their own after Part 1, since they don't see Part 2 of Hired! until the next episode. They come up with something involving World War II breaking out. Also counts as No Ending because they get interrupted by the Commercial Sign before they could finish. They are understandably disappointed. Hello, Insert Name Here: Tom (as Jimmy): Um, "Hello sir or madam..." Ho Yay: Joel and the 'bots imply this about Mr. Warren and Jimmy. Mr. Warren: I remember the first thing Harry drilled into me— Crow: —was Harry! "I Am Becoming" Song: "I'd like to make a sale, but what can I do? I'm gonna be a failure just like you, Dad!" "I Am" Song: He's Hired, and nobody can deny that. Notable Original Music: Again, "Hired! The Musical"
I got a job today! (He's hired!)
I'm selling Chevrolets! (He's hired!) I'm taking home good pay... I just got hired! Previously On: As the short was broken up into two segments, this trope was given a minor spoof. Crow: Previously on Hired! Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: "HE BOUGHT THE CAR!" Running Gag: Joel and the Bots pointing out that Jimmy really should have an actual car to show. Left the Background Music On Servo: (as one of Jimmy's potential customers) Could ya turn down the music?! I can't hear a word you're saying! Special Edition: When Shout! Factory rereleased , not only was the original second half of "Manos" The Hands of Fate Hired! on here, they actually fused both parts together and released it as a bonus feature, just because they could. Suspiciously Similar Song: The middle portion of the Hired! song ("I got a job today!") is a riff on the song "I Hope I Get It". A Chorus Line
