Film watched: ''Film/{{Morozko}}'' aka ''Jack Frost''

The last of the four Russo-Finnish films featured on the show. This is notable for being the TropeNamer for TheFreelanceShameSquad, coined by Crow when a group of villagers in the movie.

!!The Segments:
* Mike, as Lord of the Dance, performs alongside with Crow and Servo to an audience of Gypsy.

[[AC:Segment 1]]
* Bobo and Brain Guy contact the SOL, as [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S08E12TheIncrediblyStrangeCreatures Pearl's dropping off the Space Children]]. The two disagree on who is the leader and the list of tasks Pearl left, which leads Mike brought down as mediator. He tricks Brain Guy into taking his place in today's experiment, but sees through it by Movie Sign.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Crow brings in Yakov Smirnoff to help them on today's movie, but he's no expert.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Crow announces to Mike and Servo that he's a bear. Meanwhile, Bobo and Brian Guy bond with each other by complaining about Pearl. Crow keeps being a bear in the theater, but changes back.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* Crow hires a better expert for the film than Yakov Smirnoff, Earl Torgeson, after several [[InsaneTrollLogic associations]] between him and ''[[Franchise/{{Rocky}} Rocky IV]]'', but he's no help.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Servo is "adowable and pwecious", which confuses Mike and Crow. Over beer, Bobo and Brain Guy drunkenly argue about the best ape movie, forcing Mike to come down to the planet to pick. Pearl returns and ends the argument.

!!The ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' presentation contains examples of:
* AlanSmithee: Mike posits that every name in the credits is Russian for this.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: InUniverse, Servo dubs Nastenka as, "One of the greatest criminal masterminds of the 20th century," but doesn't really elaborate. He also referred to her having a "conniving face" and being "maliciously cute."
* BecomingTheMask: Crow puts on his bear costume and insists he's a bear. He then eats half of Servo and buries the other half for later. Servo's not pleased.
* CallBack
** "Am I Kirok?"
** "I thought I was Dale."
* CavemenVsAstronautsDebate: Bobo argues with Observer with which is the better ape movie: ''Film/EveryWhichWayButLoose'' or its sequel ''Any Which Way You Can''. Pearl settles matters with ''Film/DunstonChecksIn''.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
-->'''Crow:''' (as Ivan is loaded into Baba Yaga's oven) Uh-oh, roasted nuts.
** And this, from the same scene:
-->'''Ivan:''' Well, I've never been pushed into an oven, and that's the first time I've ever sat on a shovel!
-->'''Mike:''' The ''flat'' part, anyways.
* IncrediblyLamePun
-->'''Bear Ivan:''' Nastenka! What's the matter?
-->'''Crow:''' ''(as Ivan)'' Am I un-''bear''-able?
* LogicalFallacies: Crow's reasoning for getting a butcher named Earl Torgeson to talk about Russian folklore.
* {{Lolicon}}:
-->'''Ivan:''' Nastenka, darling, will you marry me?
-->'''Servo:''' ''(as Nastenka)'' Um, I'm ''nine''.
* MindScrew: Since they didn't have any knowledge of the original Russian stories blended together to form the plot, this was what Mike and the Bots' considered the film to be. Not that the scripters of the dub seemed to have any greater clue. (Calling Baba Yaga "The Hunchback Fairy"? Really?)
* NoPronunciationGuide
-->'''Crow:''' ''[during the credits]'' Oh, N-hykhnekh!
* RightBehindMe: Except Pearl is so evil she isn't even put off by it.
* RussianReversal: Well, naturally, since Yakov Smirnoff (okay, a Smirnoff look-alike, but whatever) makes an appearance in one of the host segments.
* ShoutOut
** One to ''Film/DuckSoup'' when the dog comes barking out of its kennel:
-->'''Crow:''' Now, back into Harpo's chest!
** A bunch of ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' jokes.
-->'''Mike:''' (''as Father Mushroom'') Hey-oh, day-oh, Tom Bombadil-o!\\\
'''Mike:''' (''as Father Mushroom keeps popping in and out of invisibility'') Frodo gets drunk and [[MindScrew screws]] with the neighbors.
** After WickedStepmother slaps Mafusha.
-->'''Mike:''' ''[[LeonardoDiCaprio This Fin's Life]]''!
** As Marfusha gobbles down food.
-->'''Crow:''' It's [[Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife Mrs. Creosote]]!
** A quick reference to TheChroniclesOfNarnia appears when Father Mushroom disappears in a puff of smoke:
--> '''Tom Servo:''' I didn't know there were that many land mines left in Narnia.
** At the start of one scene, a roasted pig is shown on the table. Tom immediately laments: "[[Film/{{Babe}} Babe!!]] (sobbing)"
*** Later when Marfushka is in [[ItMakesSenseInContext a sled pulled by pigs]]:
-->'''Tom Servo:''' [[TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas On]] [[CharlottesWeb Wilbur]], on {{Gordy}}, on {{Film/Babe}}!
** ''Theatre/{{Oklahoma}}'': "Oh what a beautiful (gibberish Russian), oh what a beautiful (gibberish Russian)..."
** Music/GratefulDead: "I thought Jerry Garcia was 'Father Mushroom'."
** "Music/PaulWilliams!"
** When Ivan is turned into a bear:
-->'''Ivan!Crow:''' Dammit [[Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream Puck]], this time you've gone too far!.
* ShirtlessScene: Mike as the Lord of the Dance.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck
-->'''Mike:''' ...So the first plot point involves knitting socks. I think we're in for quite a ride, guys!
* ViewersAreGeniuses: (When a rooster crows several times) Tom: "Boy, [[Literature/TheBible Peter]] must be going around denying ''everybody'' today!"
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: [[invoked]] The crew has quite a lot of fun with these jokes when Father Mushroom shows up.
* WickedStepmother: Servo joins in on the LampshadeHanging.
-->'''Ivan:''' You must have a very wicked stepmother.
-->'''Servo:''' ''(as Nastenka)'' Yep, standard issue.
