Well said, Tom Servo. I'd like to do that, too. I could not possibly sit through this movie without the riffing.

Jus finished this up my third try. This is a great episode, hoooooorrrible movie, but perfect example of those late 80s/early 90s b movies tht are were on cinemax or showtime at 3 or 4 in the morning. This episode though, funny as all hell. Note: the chick with the eyepatch i think was in Captain Powers and the Soldiers of the Future tv show back in the mid 80s..if anyone remembers that oldie...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eAA9rKZc-U

I'm 90% sure the whole "big-boned" thing is something left over from the screenplay or story that didn't make it over to filming, but was left in the movie because of incompetence.
I'm 99% sure it's not a statement that women should be small and skinny. You guys are giving this movie too much credit.

While Kathy Ireland may be slightly taller than the average woman, it's not enough that she strikes me as "big-boned". If they really wanted to sell us on that idea they should have hired smaller actors or had her stand on a box or shot the scenes with everyone else standing several feet behind her like they did in "Lord of the Rings".

I thought I saw every episode 3 times and then this gem pops up. The first 20 minutes have some of the best riffs in the series! And that annoying voice just begs to be lampooned. (looking at pictures of herself): hmm, Daddy had a daughter!" "Daddy?" "Can you prove that?" And Mike sure does know a lot about super models. I love how he starts to take his wedding ring off as he names them...

I think the big-boned is in reference to her height rather than her girth. She's taller than Bambino who's the first to refer to her this way and she's typically as tall as if not taller than the other men of and women of Atlantis

It's been a long time since I last watched this one. When I was stationed in Korea in 2000 my now-ex-wife threw out a bunch of my stuff, including all but one of my tapes. For years all I had was a single 9 hour SLP recording that I managed (through very, VERY carefully skipping commercials) to barely fit 5 episodes on. This one was the first on the tape, so I got pretty tired of it.

That scene at the end with her ex-boyfriend really bugs me. At the beginning she's everything that's unhealthy in a woman-she doesn't want to do anything or go anywhere. It's not just that she's afraid of flying. So she gets clingy when he tries to break up with her, telling him, "I'll change, tell me what to fix and I'll fix it," which is clingy and unhealthy. She needed to focus on herself a bit more and accept the person she was, and he was smart to recognize that he was not compatible with the person she was, and wouldn't try to make her change.

Then, of course, she does change. She grows more self-confident, she found an ability to travel and a sense of adventure, which might make her a good fit for this guy. But somehow he comes off as immature there, and she's somehow too good for him. It's like she's getting revenge for him for not deciding to control her life and tell her who to be. Weird.

Given the fact she is so young, I would imagine she would be a minus prescription for her glasses (generally short sighted). It was really bad form to have her squint at a menu and comically defer an opinion. Because she isn't forty five, her crystalline lens would be flexible and that menu should have been as clear as anything. Strange how to managed to spot her friend when she was arrested in a truck moving over bumpy ground in low lighting :P Not funny I know, but just saying...

One of my personal faves. I even kinda dig the movie: I've seen it un-MSTied a few times.

But most importantly, this is the episode where I officially decided that Mike was going to be a fitting successor to Joel--I was on the fence at first.
