  • Quotes

    • Beakman: Phoebe, clear the air with a question, please.
      Phoebe: Deodorizing!

    • Beakman: So, pigs, hogs and swine are all called the same thing.
      Lester: (holding a piglet) Mostly good eating.
      Beakman: Lester, not in front of the children.

    • Beakman: And do you know why they roll in mud?
      Lester: Because they can?

    • Beakman: But as we know from experience, they can smell like a pig.
      Lester: Oh, Beakey, you flatter me!

    • Beakman: My brain is scanning for a question. Click on a letter, Phoebe.
      Phoebe: Spell-check this one, Geek-Man.

    • Lester (imitating a Blues Brother): Y'know, I remember back in '58, me and Sunny Boy was playin' a juke joint on the South Side. Woo! We was testifyin' that night!
      Beakman: Sounds like perjury to me!

    • Phoebe: Let's Get Physical! It's time.... to I.D. your ideas! Here he is... The orthodontist of the organ, the periodontist of the peripheral, the A. Whitney Brown of the Never-A-Frown... The one, the only, the Beakman!
      Beakman: You rake them, I'll bake them. Let's funky turkey!

  • Notes

    • This episode probably features a piglet puppet instead of the real thing because a live one would have made too much noise to be handled for taping.

    • Beakman only gets one question and fact out in Beakmania before the challenge.

  • Allusions

    • Lester's style during the sound frequency segment (and the closing song) is based on The Blues Brothers, the famous 1980 film. Senta Moses (Phoebe) was a dancing extra in that movie.

    • A. Whitney Brown (mentioned in Beak-mania intro) is a comedian probably best known for his recurring appearance on Saturday Night Live in the 1980s.
