* TakeThat: Joel and the Bots mercilessly rib the "Sara" song that plays as the band drives to the mountains, calling it "white {{Reggae}}", attributing it to Music/{{Morrissey}}, then deciding it's actually by Music/RingoStarr.
-->'''Servo''': Boy, you know, Ringo did some bad songs, but this is really embarrassing.
-->'''Crow''' ''(after the line "What should I do?")'': Retire!

->''"You have to wonder why this race of aliens ever came to Earth. They appear, they stand around looking at us, whimpering; then all of a sudden, at the least sign of any questioning or concern, they start killing us! I mean, excuse me - what do you want? Have you been helped?"''

Naturally, this trainwreck provided perfect fodder for a thorough riffing by the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' crew. In particular, much fun was had at the expense of the fictional pop band's performance of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0Z_OWPe6fU "Burning Rubber Tires"]], whose [[{{Mondegreen}} unintelligible lyrics]] prompted Joel and the bots to misinterpret the chorus, "Hear the engines roar now", as "idiot control now", among others. In addition, the lead singer's after-song gesture of making the OK sign, smiling, and saying, "It stinks" became a recurring in-joke on [=MST3K=]. ([[ItMakesSenseInContext The OK sign makes more sense in Spain, where the film was made, because the gesture is similar to "the finger" there.]]) This is also the first episode that showed Crow's legs.
