@ 16:28 Tom says: "Is that a girl my Lord in a flatbed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me?"

(*SPOILER ALERT*) In retrospect, I think part of what makes this movie so depressing is the preventability of the ending. You know what would make this movie better? A restraining order! Jesse basically threatens to brutalize Carrie when he says, "(Bix) isn't always going to be around (to protect you)." Yikes. Pretty depressing stuff. And you'd think there would be some punishment for his first attempt... at least a stern talking-to.... Oy.

So, I just had a flashback to a disturbing thing from my childhood. The bellybutton bit at the beginning reminded me of a very strange and kind of upsetting children's book about a kid who was born without a bellybutton and went to a factory to get one.

I can't be the only person who read that book or thought it was weird.

Watching this again, I'm beginning to wonder if maybe the *actors* had a thing and that's where all the Bix/Danny vibes come from.

I've never seen this one before, and the way Trace delivered that line during invention exchange 'What, are you going to give kids poop?' made me laugh so hard that I actually had to clamp my mouth shut so I didn't wake my housemates.

How many of you stopped the episode around 26:42 in response to Joel's riff about the man having 6 fingers? I don't think the guy actually has 6 fingers... Is there a joke I'm missing there?

Carrie's character could have been replaced by a pickle for all the point she added to this crappily-written story. Her Dad could have had this prize pickle, the drifter would sit and be condescending at it, tell it to wear certain clothes. Then the weird guy eats the pickle and the drifter guy gets blamed. Then Dad beats him up for eating the pickle- giant pickle mob fight. The End.

At 36:21, Servo says, "What about that guy I groined in the knee?" I wonder if Kevin goofed that line, or meant to mix up the words.

I know I wrote this a lot, but this is truly an underappreciated episode. In fact, this may be the most criminally underappreciated episode of them all. It has my favorite MST song ever, and so many pause-the-movie, laugh-out-loud quips that it takes me five hours to watch it through. This silly movie brought out the sneaky snark. Oh, just smiley it already!

One of my all-time favorites. And I gotta share: as a playwright I've thought for almost 20 years about how to fix the ending so this movie works, and really the only thing that does is going full-Brokeback. Big Stupid/Danny: my OTP.

Jack Elam was great in "Support Your Local Sheriff" and I think Carrie's Dad was the slovenly, captain in "the Caine Mutiny", replaced by Humphrey Bogart. "Yeah, the strawberries....."

As for the thugs in the pool hall Big Stupid and Danny run into; that was the least impressive gang ever. Taken down by a skinny under nourished drifter and his wimpy cohort who they outnumbered. And they had weapons.

Definitely one of their better singing riffs; but the opening credits had a good musical addition as well!
