The people in this movie seem to have an awfully casual attitude about marriage.

Bots trying to get into Gypsy's diary earned the Laugh all by itself. What is it about Crow getting busted up that floors me every time!

This episode has such a depressing movie that I don't watch it very often (as in, not once in the last year), but being reminded of Giant Servo and Mike throwing Servo out of the theater...well, I'll watch it, and probably be depressed by Marv's absolutely depressing life.

So is the short about the Breadman an allegory for the book of Job?

I feel like this is the only episode where the Mads don't mention the short... or am I wrong?

28:16: Richard Dixon and John Nickolaus on the same credit screen, a long silent pause, and then all Mike could come up with was mumbling something like "(that should be) Jack Nickolaus"? I bet they regretted missing that one.

What always kills me about this movie is how insistent it is that Marv is a genius, even though he never really does anything particularly clever (or adequate, really).

As lame and cheesy as the short about the bread salesman was, they had a point about bread being important. Ancient Athens was brought to its knees when the grain shipments stopped coming in from the Black Sea. Man's gotta eat!

This is the single most depressing story and Marv is undoubtedly the most pathetic character in film history. That saddest part is that the producers expected the audience to connect with Marv obviously because he's the only character in the movie who comes close to being the protagonist.

Of course satin tap pants could ONLY come from Hell, so it makes sense that the devil in this short would be wearing them.

This is one of the episodes when the movie actually pissed me off. The fact that Marv is wimpy and friendless but inexplicably has a connection to career criminals to help with the heist. By help with the heist, I mean do the entire heist themselves with Marv's only involvement is going along with them. To top everything off, Marv acts like he's somehow in charge of the heist by giving orders like, "Hurry," and "Come on," and the two professionals actually listen to him and follow his retarded commands.

The climax of this stinkburger is a touching reminder of just how many filmmakers, to quote Our Heroes, "Have some issues with women." :/

... I'm afraid my husband might be headed for trouble. Keith is a good, kind, decent man, but I think the desert has started to melt his brain cells. Let me explain. He works in the chemical lab of a power plant. Recently the company hired an assistant by the name of Frank. Well, in the course of training Keith has told him to “Push the button, Frank.” He then laughs hysterically for no obvious reason.

The opening tune sounds like a jazzy version of the Friday the 13th theme.

Marv's heist plan doesn't seem to take into account the part where his boss ends up with his tongue pulled out through his slit throat for not having the money to pay the triad guys.

As a person with chronic migraines, I know what it is to want to run a power-drill through your own head.

Good stuff.

Frank's lackluster scolding of the dinosaur is probably one of my favorite Frank moments.

i think tom pittman, who played marv, is actually pretty good considering the material. i looked him up on line and was sad to find he actually died shortly after this film at 26. :(

Wow, Tarantino-like carnage ending (hmm…wonder if he ripped off anything from this one too?). In any case, as I have noted many times my friends, just one hot girl carrying heavy “daddy issues” can take out more men than an Armored Division.

The short is one of the best of the whole series. Probably my second favorite behind Progress Island USA.

Okay. Granted--Betty is a stone cold, manipulative, gold-digging trollop. But her teacher's treatment of her is unsettling inappropriate, and would cost him his job nowadays.
I mean he basically told her, to her face: "You're a sweet piece of tail, but dumber than a bag of hammers"....JESUS! The harassment lawsuit that would result from a teacher talking to a student like that these days would bankrupt the school district!

I still don't know how this ep stays so low on the totem pole with the quality riffs on this awful movie. The way they tear into the depressing guy and his even more depressing dad is almost magical.

Marv really has no head for crime. The whole idea about a heist is to keep it under wraps until after it is done.
