Crow: And so, Billy, the little boy who looks just like you, went through terrible, irredeemable grief!
Crow: Remember that kitten, Billy? That was nothing compared to this! At least the kitten went quick, Billy!
Tom (as sleeping kid): Ooooh Monkey! Oooooh... car coming! Oh, flaming cat. Dog dying, mean psychics! Oh, Grandpa! Help!
Mike and the Bots are doing 1920s college pranks. Mike swallowed a goldfish, Servo stuffs himself and his clones in a phone booth and Crow sitting on a flag pole. He soon falls down.
With orders from the Institute of Mad Science, Pearl conducts an experiment involving complete power over everyone else. Servo soon turns into a third world dictator. However, the addition of fire ants on underpants lead to Servo leaving office.
Crow and Servo begin to review each other. At first, the reviews are positive, but soon slips to overly negative.
Inspired by Merlin, Servo tries his hand on magic. After chanting a spell, he turns Mike into a baby. In the theater, he gets better.
Mike tries to read the Ernest Borgnine children's book line to Crow and Servo. The books with innocent names have graphic blood and guts, but Dr. Blood's Orgy of Gore is surprisingly pleasant.
Mike and the Bots get a cymbal monkey from Pearl, but it's actually Bobo in disguise. Disappointed with the scores, Pearl tells them that the movies are going to get worse from here.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment / Narm Charm: invoked Best Brains loved the kid playing with the monkey while wearing goofy glasses singing, "Rock 'n' roll Martian!" They stated it was a perfect example of self-invented games kids always do.
Chekhov's Gun: Averted. The psychic gives David a charm to protect himself from the toy monkey, but (at least in this cut of the film) he is never shown using/wearing it.
Servo: Man, Borgnine's grandson must really bored by now. Mike (as Grandpa Borgnine): "...Then he puttered around the kitchen for awhile, and got himself a cold drink!"
Plot Hole: After the kid explains how Merlin really was responsible for the first segment's twist ending, Mike comments "The kid's figuring out all the plot holes."
After burying the toy monkey outside of the town, David is shown about to be crushed by a tree and presumably killed. The next scene shows him with his arm in a cast and a few bruises.
Crow:(as the kid) But, Grandpa Borgnine, the tree fell right on him! Mike:(as Grandpa Borgnine) I know, but I wrote myself into a corner.
Released to Elsewhere: After the father in the second half finds the body of Sparkle the dog, and his son asks what happened, Mike quips "I very quickly sold him to a farm where he'll be happier."
Running Gag: The graphic events on-screen being casually described by Ernest Borgnine to his grandson.
And the devil cat grabbed his throat and pulled out bloody strips of sinew and flesh.
Small Name, Big Ego: Jonathan acts this way for a store critic, so Mike and the Bots run with it.
Servo: Look, my reviews have destroyed whole cities!
Straw Critic: Servo and Crow become niche reviewers and review each other in one of the segments. It starts off positively and civil, but following a few minor criticisms, it escalates into giving each other virulent and vehement thumbs down.
Take That: "Oh look, it's something else Satan created: Japanimation."
