OK; I'll say it: I'm impressed that Eegah drops the girl ('human shield'?) as soon as the cops draw. He's been nicked by rat-boy's shotgun already, in the mountains, and as soon as he sees the 'Desert sheriff Patrol' get ready to start blasting, he saves the girl from their hail of bullets. They clearly liked each other (see her pre-party talk with 'Dad'), and were eloping. She wanted out of her plastic BS country club existence (and wanted to start dating a grown-up!), but was raised too passive to do so herself. Whenever Eegah shows up, she simply 'swoons' out of any/all decision-making capability and 'lets it happen'. As far as I see it, between her loser BF and her shave-requiring 'Dad', she was aching to bust out, and Eegah was her romantic ticket out of there. It was a pure Hero Move to drop her out of the line of fire when the shooting started.
Eegah, of course, learned too late that Man is a feeling creature......

Whats with the shaving? Why did he even have his shaving kit with him? Seriously, WTF?
Also, one of my puppies is named "Snake" so the phrase "watch out for snakes" gets a lot of use around my house.

A cave with a giant whose entrance is blocked by a giant rock? Ok, what you do is you find a guy named Ulysses, get him to give the giant some wine, ram a giant stick through the giant's eyes while he sleeps and then escape under the giant's flock of sheep.

When Eegah picks up that pool ladder and Tom says "That's an unusual thing to wield" I missed the next 3 minutes of the episode I was laughing so hard. This is a great episode. Love al the constant dubbed mumbling done by Eegah, who apparently is the most talkative caveman ever.

I think this movie could have been a nice cult classic if they did sort of a beauty and the beast type thing where the beast was more noble than "hero." But I think that's way more thoughtful than the makers of this movie wanted to get.

Hey! No molecular motion conflicts with the complementary variable of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle that states the momentum and position of a sub-atomic particle cannot be simultaneously known. So even at 0 kelvin a particle must still have motion equal to its minimal potential well. Come on Joel this is easy stuff.

So the whole rigmarole is a set up for a make-over for YeekGad -- there was shaving cream and much cavorting -- and then when he's all into it, they leave him holding the bag. That could turn a guy cynical. If he's still out there in his corner of as yet to be discovered America, I'd like to ask him about his romantic plans going forward; can he rediscover those days of innocence before he bagged ( in the archaic sense ) his first female and approach life as a pretty cool caveman with a helluva club ready for action? Only geological time will tell.

There are two movie scenes that have made me genuinely sick to my stomach: one is that scene in "The Fly" where Jeff Goldblum pukes acid on that one guy's hand and melts it; the other is the shaving scene in "Eegah". I'm honestly not sure which is first and which is second.

I wondered how Arch Hall Jr. got the part as the 'dreamy' boyfriend and discovered that his dad, Arch Hall Sr. co-wrote the film with Bob Wehling, directed it (using the name Nicholas Merriweather) and provided backing for the movie. Daddy also co-starred as Mr. Miller under the name William Watters.

One of the stupidest things in a stupid movie: Eegah is what they assume his name is because "that's what he says most of the time." How many people repeat their own names over and over again? "Eegah" probably means something like "idiot". He just keeps saying, "Idiot, don't you know anything? Idiot! Idiot!"

"Vitamins are good, they say, and so's a gallery..."

This is seriously one of the most baffling lines I've ever heard in any song, which leads me to believe that they cut a verse about vitamins. And going by the rhyme scheme he's got going, it must have been something like this:

"If I had...
...to plan my diet...
...'round a deadly...
allergy...
I'd split...
...my vitamin supplements...
...and share...
...with Valerie."

What else rhymes with Valerie?

This is my absolute favorite episode of the entire series. The movie is just the right flavor of awful, the music is, in reality, very fun and appropriate for the tone of the film, and each main character has his/her own memorable scenes and qualities. It's my favorite MST3K line-up as well, and brought me my favorite riffs from the series as well. Let's enjoy, won't you? Thank me.
