" Gasoline and clown white all over the road. They're still picking up clown noses." One of the best host segments ever.

[Slap to the mother of the hunchback and dwarf] "That's the price you pay for being a side-show pass-around."

That may just be the darkest freaking riff these guys ever made, and it came from Joel! Sheesh! I honestly did a double-take after that.

So if they don't have to be brides, then why not just kidnap people?

Do they ever explain why they have to be brides?

This movie's title is apt. That is what happens. I've seen it twice, and got so distracted I still don't know what happened. Watch this one intoxicated, people. It needs some spice...

When the police dispatcher alerts patrols that another corpse bride has been stolen, he gives her height, weight, and hair color. Wouldn't it be enough to say apprehend anyone driving around with a dead lady in their vehicle?

Man, what was up with that newspaper editor. The reporter comes in. I found a clue, a poisoned orchid that was found on every bride. Editor: But we only we could find a clue to the missing brides. Reporter: I found a pile of dead bride corpses. Editor: But if only we could find the dead brides. Your fired! what?! I thought she did a pretty good job of solving the crime.

I actually really like this movie. Then again, I have a weakness for a film with a Plucky Girl Reporter who actually is.

Tiger-bot magazine has a picture of a Cray supercomputer on the cover. yowza. It was round so all the wires were the same length, therefore there would be no delay in the parallel processing. Hubba hubba!

As I was watching the final scene, there sure seemed to be a lot of people crowded behind them as they got married. Were they supposed to be the brides that were taken? I only ask because this time, I noticed that they said the brides wouldn't be dead but "alive in a cataleptic state" which would imply that they could be brought back if they found them.

Or am I just reading too much into it?

So...they're all getting paranoid about brides dying at the ceremony, and they're worried. ...and yet, a present comes without a signature on it and they just make an assumption that it's from the groom? I would have asked first.

Maybe it's just the mood I'm in, but Servo's line: "a little leg of the dog that bit him" strikes me as the funniest line ever.
