    • Phil Collins clutching his Oscar. He kisses it when he succeeds in breaking up Skyler's band and shows it off at Lalapalalapaza.
  • Take That!:
    • To celebrity of the week, Phil Collins. This was done purely out of revenge for Collins beating Parker and Stone in the "Best original Song" category at the Academy Awards.
