, with short
Keeping Clean and Neat Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Frank and potato cakes. Beauty Equals Goodness: Mockingly evoked in the riffing during Keeping Clean and Neat. Crow: Remember, people like you better if you're pretty. Brain Bleach: The scene in which porn director Johnny Ride gave mannish porn mogul Gloria Henderson a long kiss. Servo: Please, Mike, cover my eyes. Crow: That's it. I'm gonna be a monk. (Crow and Servo make gagging noises as they kiss.) Call-Back: Cardboard Prison: Apparently, Dr. Forrester's bonds don't prevent him from leaving Deep 13. Enemy Mine: Mike and the 'bots are perfectly fine with Frank blowing up Deep 13 til they realize no Deep 13, no ever coming back to Earth. Felony Misdemeanor: Crow: If they're arresting these guys, imagine the arrests they could make at the beach! Genius Bonus: Mike's riff, "Smut! I'll show ya smut!" is one of the most obscure MST3K riffs. (It was a line uttered by Hawkeye in an episode of that was partly drowned out by other bickering characters.) M*A*S*H The follow-up to Tom's " Bob Dylan saves the day!" riff when Dirk ( allegedly) skulks outside of the pizza shop scene: Hostage Situation: TV's Frank sets this up after being inspired by movies like , In the Line of Fire Blown Away and . Speed Incredibly Lame Pun: When Mike cracks "Oh, he's a beat cop!", Tom groans and Crow chuckles. Mike comments, "Well, he liked it." Leaning on the Fourth Wall/ Mythology Gag: Mike laughs at a car grill, commenting, "Jet Jaguar!" Crow laughs for a moment, "Hey, it is!", then quizzically asks, "How would you know?!" Joel, not Mike, was on the Satellite of Love for . Godzilla vs. Megalon Let's Kick It Into KLINE OVERDRIVE!: Invoked by Crow when Kline fights Dirk during a sting operation. Unfortunately, Johnny intervenes. Only it wasn't Kline. It was an unnamed undercover officer played by a different actor. Padding: It is an Ed Wood film, after all. Mike and the Bots are watching prolonged footage of the outside of a police station. Crow: Ah. Ed Wood agonized over this scene. Mike: And now we are. The scene continues for several more seconds Crow: This is why Ed Wood gets final cut! Parallel Porn Title: Inevitable considering the subject matter. Examples include and Forrest Hump . A Few Nude Men Poke the Poodle: "Big Ethel" is coerced into doing porn, but... Crow: So they put her in more clothes than she's ever had on in her life! Police Are Useless Servo: Sir, shouldn't we get back to the office and speculate? Role Association: Crow invokes the former trope name, gleefully exclaiming, "Oh, goodie! THIS guy!" when Harvey B. Dunn appears. Shout-Out: Take That!: Gloria: In church?! Don't tell me that they're peddling those pictures in church! Mike: (As Gloria) That market is saturated. Worth It: Mike and the 'bots state watching Gloria getting caught in an obvious lie and her reaction to seeing Dirk was worth the pain of watching the movie. Servo also does a sarcastic version with his boisterous laughter at Lt. Carson's prank on Randy in an earlier scene.
