The Episode

Host Segments

Prologue: Joel introduces the movie and plays a message from a happy caller.

Segment One: Joel & the Bots listen to messages from two more viewers. The first caller is angry about the "constant interruptions" (i.e, the riffing), but the second caller wants "More! More! More!" This segment appears on the MST3K Scrapbook tape.

Segment Two: Gypsy gets upset when a caller asks for "less movie, more chapstick". The crew promises to use more chapstick in the future, and Joel offers Gypsy a choice between regular and wintergreen.

Segment Three: Crow explains the best ways to keep various body orifices clean and healthy. "Never put anything in your ear larger than a pirate!"

Segment Four: Servo and Crow make prank phone calls to Domino's Pizza and Dan Quayle. Crow explains several uses for doggie-doo, and Joel invites viewers to call in with their comments.[1]
