Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Two of the "dittoheads" in the audience appear from behind to resemble Mrs. Dickey and Principal McVicker (although it is unlikely they are and are probably just generic characters, since they have always hated B&B and would be unlikely to applaud them under any circumstances.)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Gus: Now, people say that yours is a lost generation! Violent, lazy, uneducated, sexually active!
      Butt-head: Uh, not Beavis.
      Beavis: Yeah, Butt-head doesn't get any either.
      Gus: Well, you two certainly are fine, upstanding young men...a credit to the youth of America! ("dittoheads" applaud)

    • Gus: These rock videos are immoral! Indecent! Profane! Scurrillous! And blasphemous!
      Beavis: Yeah! They suck! THEY SUCK! Indecent! Profane! (audience stops applauding, begins hissing)
      Butt-head: Yeah, especially Meatloaf. He sucks!
      Gus: Hey...we're on the air! You can't use that language!
      Beavis: We use language?
      Gus: (whispers into Butt-head's ear)
      Butt-head: Hey, Beavis, he says we can't say "sucks."
      Beavis: Really? That sucks.
      Butt-head: Can we say "buttwipe?"
      Beavis: Yeah, how about "bunghole"? Bunghole!
      Butt-head: What about buttmunch?
      Beavis: Yeah heheh, buttmunch. Or dillhole?
      Butt-head: Dillweed?
      Gus: Hey!! Do you use that language at home?!?
      Butt-head: Uhh...yeah!
      Beavis: Hey Gus, check this out. PEEKABOO!!
      Gus: AHH! CUT TO THE COMMERCIAL! GO TO THE COMMERCIAL!
      Announcer: To make a positive change in America, pledge $10 to elect Gus Baker President!

    • (during Jawbox Video)
      Beavis: Whenever I'm invited to parties, I always want to go and rip open all the presents.
      Butt-head: Beavis, you've never been invited to a party in your life.
      Beavis: Yeah, I did. Remember Stuart's party?
      Butt-head: Oh, yeah.
      Beavis: Remember when we were like playing Hide-and-Seek, hee hee, and I crawled into the dryer and took a poop?
      Butt-head: Huh huh, yeah. I bet his Mom was surprised to find THAT present.

  • NOTES (3)

    • There probably wasn't anything "goofy" intended with the cut gesture...Beavis & Butthead were starting to use bad words and he wanted to get to the commercial.

    • Changing the "hoodlums" to "bastards" was probably done to make Butthead's sarcastic response ("Do you use that language at home?") more relevant.

    • Goofy edits made to original version:
      Gus making a "cut" gesture
      Gus originally calling the boys "hoodlums" instead of the current version where he calls them "bastards."

      Also, when B&B see a replay of Beavis mooning the audience and Beavis asks if the "fuzzy stuff on his butt is still there," in the DVD version Butt-head simply says "Get your butt out of my face now," but in the original episode he says "No, but it wouldn't hurt to wipe once in a while," after which Beavis says, "Oh yeah, sorry, I was in a hurry," and Butt-head replies "Get your butt out of my face and into that bathroom now." It may have been timing (the DVD cut was almost exactly 5 minutes,) or it may have been a rather half-assed (excuse the pun) attempt at censoring something as relatively mild as not wiping one's posterior.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The book featured on the set of the Gus Barker Show is named "See I Told You!" (Legible in close-ups of Bevis and Butthead on the couch), a parody of the real Rush Limbaugh's book "See, I Told You So!", which he displayed on his TV show's set in a similar manner.
