Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 06 E 18 High School Big Shot
Film watched: High School Big Shot with the short Out of This World

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:

  • Call Back: Servo references the short at the beginning when he ponders where the bread display in a general store is.
  • Curse Cut Short: During the "Out of This World" riffing:
    Salesman: That's why I keep these bullseye tablets. So that a small slip-up doesn't turn into a big trip-up.
    Mike: Make sure you stock your truck up, so that you don't...well, you know.
  • Ear Worm / With Lyrics: "He's a high school... big shot! He's a big shot... in high school..."
  • Gentleman Thief: T. Hewett Edward Crow. He still can't get past the lock on Gypsy's diary.
  • Hulk Speak: Tom develops this when Crow turns him huge.
    "Movie bad! Movie go away!"
  • Overly-Long Gag: Tom Servo repeatedly singing "Don't Pay the Ferryman", which he pays for dearly.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: The "Vince analyzes Othello" riff.
  • Spoof Aesop: As "The End" shows on screen:
    Crow: This is the P.T.A. reminding you to always do your homework!


"A million bucks!"
