"This is like a stag film produced by the League of Women Voters."
"Ya'know, Peaches has a fresh, natural stupidness that isn't forced or contrived..."
—Crow T. Robot
Film watched: Racket Girls
with the educational short film Are You Ready For Marriage
The MST3K presentation contains the following tropes:
- Call Back: "No, Lupita!"
- Father, I Want to Marry My Brother: The short prompts Crow to ask Mike for Servo's hand in marriage.
- Fetish Fuel / Fetish Retardant: Mike and the 'Bots veer wildly between the two, simultaneously being turned on and turned off at the same time, even in consecutive riffs.
Crow: I'm being turned on by a woman long dead. (audible sigh/shudder)
- Flashback Stares: Spoofed during the short when, during a close-up shot of one of the characters blankly staring at the camera, Mike and the 'Bots make it appear as if she's having a Vietnam War flashback, complete with gunfire noises.
Mike: (after cut away from close-up) Sorry, back in Da Nang there...
- Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have: Mike and the 'bots reaction to Ruby.
Mike: I never saw my Grandma naked, but this'll do.
- Stock Footage: Lampshaded.
Servo: "Police cars, not dissimilar to these, were called to the scene. This is a narrative approximation of something that may or may not have happened."
- Up to Eleven
This director has out-Wooded Ed Wood
When Ed Wood saw this, it was like when Truffaut saw Citizen Kane
- Waxing Lyrical: Dr. Forrester in the last host segment, performing the wedding of Servo and Crow:
- Wild Mass Guessing: Mike begins to wonder if the film has some meaning "in some deep, hoary netherworld".
- Wrestler in All of Us: The wedding of Crow and Tom Servo in the second-to-last sketch is stopped by a sudden wrestling match. Mike and the 'Bots create wrestling personas after the film.
"It's gone!" "Where'd it go??"
