Recap / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 08 E 06 The Undead
The Undead Brain Bleach Servo: You know, Smolkin's naked sometimes, Mike. Mike: ...Oh, damn you, Servo. Damned by Faint Praise: When the Observers are looking over the results of the IQ tests given to the cast
Observer: The one called "Gypsy" did rather well. 80th Percentile among robots of her kind, of which there is only one. Flashback Stares: The 'bots insist that Mike provides a COMPLETE recap of events up to and before his employment at Deep 13 - unfortunately, they send him back too far (complete with Kubrick Stare.) Mike: Never figured out why they fired me... hmm. I was late a lot, there was that... quite a bit, actually... showed up that one time from that kegger - I was all stinky, I hadn't showered... punched that guy from accounting that one time... Tom: [nervous] Th-this isn't helping, Mike... Mike: Someone really had it out for me, though... think I know who it was... oh, yeah... Crow: [nervous] M-mike, honey... you're... you're scaring us... Genius Bonus: Bobo stacking boxes to find a reward is a reference to Sultan. Bobo: HEY! Where's the banana? Ho Yay: Invoked by Mike when PENDRA-gon is describing his encounter with Quintis: Pendragon: Oddly he spoke. Oddly he looked upon me. Mike: Oddly did I feel down there. Insistent Terminology: Pen-DRAGON, as opposed to PENDRA-gon. Overly Long Gag: Bobo taking his sweet time making a sandwich with Observer's brain. Power Incontinence: Livia, a witch from the film, escapes into the SoL, but is unable to control her powers and winds up transformed into a bottle of bleach. Running G STAY!!!! ag Shout-Out: When the knight who gets Mugged for Disguise first appears, Servo sings " Me in white satin..." When Livia decapitates Scroup, the tavern-keeper: Crow: Oh yah. Stylistic Suck: Smolkin's standards album, where every song is disrupted by his corpse/rat/filth Verbal Tic. This Is Gonna Suck: Crow has this reaction upon seeing Roger Corman's name in the credits. Crow: Well, that's it, we're doomed.
