Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Jonah finds the movie to be as awful as anyone, but does admit he's impressed by the movie's use of stage magic for special effects, especially when it's used to detach an android's head. The bots are less impressed, [[FantasticallyIndifferent since they assume the filmmakers just removed an actual android's head, which wouldn't be very hard to do.]]

-->'''Jonah:''' You guys know how they did that trick, right?\\
'''Crow:''' Yeah, they demagnetized the android's head. Whoopie-ding.\\
'''Jonah:''' No! No, no, no, no, no, no! If you notice there's no cuts! The android walks in, lays down, and they take off his head. All in one shot! How'd they do it?!\\
'''Servo:''' Did they do it by just detaching an android's head?

* ConfirmationBias: Servo calls out Councilman Willard on this:
-->'''Willard:''' I want to confirm the ''impossibility'' of adding passengers to the expedition.\\
'''Servo:''' Nice job introducing confirmation bias there.



* SnubByOmission: At the beginning, when the guys have stepped through the time window and Carol is calling out for them to come back before it closes, Jonah and the bots can't help but notice she calls out for only the two scientists, not Danny. Multiple times.
-->'''Carol:''' Steve! Erik!\\
'''Servo:''' Again, NOT Danny!



* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Danny starts making out with his future love interest. Cut to a welding torch in action.
-->'''Servo:''' Welding! Serving as a powerful metaphor for human coupling! Or in a pinch, ''industry''!
* SpaceClothes: "Cowboy boots with grannie panties and a bra made out of toilet paper? Works for me!"

* SceneryCensor: When the female lead is in a sectioned off section of the spa room that appears to be some kind of standing tanning booth, the bots note how convenient it is that she's just the right height for the white lines painted on the glass wall to block view of her private bits.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Jonah tries to point out a [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome genuinely impressive special effect]] involving an android in the movie. Crow and Tom Servo aren't impressed because they think the android is ''actually'' a robot, not a human in a robot costume.
