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. But Wait, There's More!: When Satan appears in the graveyard, and people line up to sell their souls to him: Servo: If you pledge your soul, you'll get a Satan tote bag. 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. Ah, yeah... 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 too... 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. The Imp: During the final segment, Crow dons an imp costume and pretends to be the imp from the film, which consists mainly of cackling and periodically exclaiming, "I'm an imp!". 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. (She does make Crow scream in terror when she briefly turns into Pearl.) Running G STAY!!!! ag Benjamin Franklin quotes whenever the bust of Franklin in the office is visible. jokes for PENDRA-gon. "Gotta help Strider move a couch." Lord of the Rings STAAAAAAAY!!! SLEEEEEEEEEEP! Portraying Professor Olinger as Mel Cooley. Shout-Out: When the knight who gets Mugged for Disguise first appears, Servo sings " Me in white satin..." Simpleton Voice: Mike and Crow affect these upon finding out that Tom proved himself intelligent enough to join the Observers. Strange-Syntax Speaker: One of the knights goes a little farther in his broken ye olde englishe. Mike takes full advantage when he gets jumped. Mike: Me help! Attacked I'm being! Hitting me stop you must! God dear bleeding am I! Break my leg think I did you! Stylistic Suck: Smolkin's standards album, where every song is disrupted by his corpse/rat/filth Verbal Tic. Take That!: Servo has Mike put on Leonard Maltin -esque glasses and a beard and then read a Humiliation Conga statement in Maltin's voice as retaliation for Maltin giving The Undead three stars in his video guide. 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. Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Mocked thoroughly: Servo (as knight pulling Smolkin over): Pullest thy vehicle to the curb and showest me thy driver's license and registration. Did thou knowest how fast thou was driving? What the Hell, Hero?: Mike was not impressed with Pendragon stabbing Livia
And our brave knight stabs an unarmed woman! Way to go, PENDRA-gon.
