1:11:26 more or less. They are doing a full exam of the patient. But.... but... they never ask him to turn his head and cough.
Of course, if they did... I think they are going to need someone with a really big hand.

Mannings sister is so annoying. Yeah, lets drain the Red Cross of it's resources and subject an entire group of military men to giving blood so I can keep a tortured soul alive for...what exactly? And then the Major (or whatever) STILL likes her and wants to take her to dinner. Men. Geeze. Anything for some tail.

Is the actress in this film the same one who played Peter Graves' wife in "It Conquered The World?" It sounds like her.

According to Wikipedia (which is not always reliable), Betty Luster's last known television appearance was on episode 7 of Michael Palin's 1989 series, Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days, on an Amtrak train heading east from Los Angeles, identifying herself as "Marna the Clown". She shows up at 8:37 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vFvFmxL2aA

Its been a while since I watched this episode, but the loathsome feeling came back when "Mr." B Natural popped in. I just don't understand why they would use someone so obviously a female to play a male role. And I think his self esteem would be better served if everyone would call him by name instead of "hey boy". As for the movie, well, I watched it to hear the guys great riffing. How stupid can a woman become when her brother is 60 feet tall? Oh well, I have to give her credit for skipping up a mountain in a dress and flats, although heels would look better with that style of dress.

The buck-passing at 0:57:40 seems to be a disinterested rip off of the bureaucracy sequence in 'Ikiru'.

A. If she really wants to "b" natural, she should be naked. B.Trying to remember any instrument that is actually a B natural, closest I can think of is a sax, which is a B flat, but hey....

I was hoping when they ended the little scene switching from Medical Research to Department of Health and Welfare with the first guy referring the person on the phone to the Pentagon that there was going to be a guy with a little sign on his desk that said "Pentagon".

This is completely unrelated to the movie, but don't you think it's odd that the highest rank is called "general", while a lower rank is called "major"? Think about it, won't you? Thank you.

They did an amazing job on the bald wig for Mike when he's playing Glen. They've done movies with bald wigs much worse than that three minute sketch.

The guy's holding a clarinet and when the girl says, "Make some music," he thumps on the case instead. (Granted, I know he'd have to put the thing together before he could play it, but it still seems silly.)

I sorta wish they would have riffed on the KTLA news broadcast in the movie since they started on KTMA. They probably noticed it but thought it would be too self-indulgent, but I really like their meta jokes ^_^

I thought both the short and the movie were insulting to human intelligence but where Mr. Be Natural was freaky bad to the point of entertaining, the movie was just BORING. Completely lost interest but watched it all for the riffs. I was with Servo at 1:08:10 (yawn, snore).

What caused Glen to develop the mentality of an animal? And I thought he was going to die soon because his heart wasn't growing at the same rate in the first movie?

Yessiree, that Mr. B is a real pip! Anyway, as I was saying, Mr. Swanson had a helluva of time with the insurance company over that dark green stake bed truck. Seems his policy only covered theft and destruction by giant mutants up to 50 feet tall and Glenn is 60 feet tall. Then his gun club went bust. The members found his ending every sentence with, “Get the picture?” quite off putting. Miguel did recover from his shock, but later got caught up in some ill conceived scheme to run barbiturate laced bread over the border with a Guavos police sergeant. On the bright side KTLA is still alive and well and broadcasting quality CW programming from its transmitter atop lovely Mount Wilson!

In "The Amazing Colossal Man", it's clear that the title character is Glenn. However, is he the "colossal beast" referred to in the title? Maybe... Or maybe it's the "colossal" war-hungry giant of defense spending! That's right! This unyielding "beast" takes over a central transportation hub, drains the Red Cross of its precious bank of 60-ft.-tall-man-blood, and blows electrical circuits in an effort to have a crazy spotlight rave down by the planetarium. And what is this "war" that the "colossal beast" of the military-industrial complex? VIETNAM! Eat it Spielberg! Just take a look at the setting: Guavos, Mexico... Or is "Guavos" really just Sovaug, Vietnam BACKWARDS! I see it, man! I see it all, man!
