The Beast of Yucca Flats

Crow: Whatever you do, don't look in the camera!
Kubrick, Nolan, Tarantino, Wan, Iñárritu, Scorsese, Chaplin, Abrams, Wes Anderson, Gilliam, Kurosawa - the elite



I believe in the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

GUNSLINGER

Kane (flirtatiously): What do you do nights?
TOM: Oh, I rut like a crazed weasel, you?

Kane: The good die first.
TOM: But most people are morally ambiguous, which explains our random dying patterns.

[Wormy guy shoots Pony Express courier]
TOM: Hey, that's a change, someone shooting a postal worker!
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...

Rev. Powell

MITCHELL

[The 'exciting' car chase]

CROW: Hot merging action!
JOEL: Oh goodness, they merged successfully, my heart was in my throat.
TOM: Jeez, these guys couldn't shake a trolley.
JOEL: Next week on "Mitchell": the cloverleaf.

THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE

Jan in the Pan: Let me die...
CROW: After you've cleaned your room.

[At the beauty contest]
MIKE: Contestant #3 slipped and her head fell off.
TOM: I'll take her, I'll take her!

Jan in the Pan: Can your horror match mine?
TOM (in game show host voice):We'll find out on 'Match That Horror'!

Of course, the funniest scene in the movie needs no riffing.  It's when the assistant with the deformed hand gets his good arm ripped off, then decides to go upstairs to die, repeatedly slamming his bloody stump against the wall and dragging it painfully so the blood smears along the way.  I submit that this is actually the last thing a normal person would want to do after their arm had just been torn out of the socket.  That death scene cracks me up every time.

"Is It Love?" short

[The parents ask the girl to tell them what her new fiance is like]
MIKE: Well, he's good in the sack, and he likes to get high.

[During the closing credits the gang lists other educational hygiene films in the series]
MIKE: "Know Your Ointments"
TOM: "What's That Down There?"
CROW: "When He Wants It Rough"
MIKE: "Procreation, Not Recreation"
TOM:  "Oh No!  Pleasure!"

TEEN-AGE STRANGLER

Dad (angrily): That's your job as a cop!
Cop: And what's your job as a parent?
TOM: Are you as turned on as I am?

[Little Mikey rings the doorbell with a message for the girlfriend]
CROW: Pansygram!
TOM: Mistress Aiyeesha, I'm here for my beating.
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...

"Cheating" short:

CROW (reading credits): "Cheating - A Centron Production.  Though we stole the idea from another company."
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...

BEGINNING OF THE END

[Title comes on screen]
MIKE: Beginning of the end, already?  It just started!

[Deaf/mute raises his arms as a giant grasshopper's about to eat him]
MIKE: He's signing "aaah!"

[Soldier rips a message off the teletype and looks it over]
CROW: Dear Abby. I'm an elderly woman who doesn't enjoy se... whoa, this came to the wrong place!
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...

THE ATOMIC BRAIN

Bea: Miss, pardon me...
MIKE: Could you tell me where my accent's from?

[Victim is shown to her room]
CROW: Excuse me, there's a dog brain in my toilet!

[Suggesting a title for the strangely avant-garde theme music...]
MIKE: Prelude to the Afternoon of a Sexually Aroused Gas Mask.
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...

I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...
