Episode Summary

EDIT
Next Time, Phone Ahead: When a very dumb alien winds up in Dexter’s backyard, he decides to keep the alien because it won’t leave him alone. However, when this alien continues to cause Dexter havoc, he must attempt to find a way to get the alien back home before it causes him even more problems; but with an alien as dumb as he is, will his people even want to take him back?

Nerdator: When all the nerds and geeks in the world get kidnapped, Freakazoid investigates the issue in order to find out what is going on. He soon learns that the “Nerdator” is behind the kidnappings and that he wants to steal the knowledge of all the world’s nerds in order to become a super-genius, though Freakazoid believes he may just know of a way to scare him away from his evil scheme.moreless

      • Narrator: It happened again at a comic convention in Buffalo.
        Fat boy: Me first. Me first! (William Shatner's wig falls off.) Ooh! hey, look! a tribble!
        Shatner: That's My hair. (grabs back the wig)
        Fatboy: Oh. (The ray zaps the conventioners and they disappear.)

        Freakazoid(out loud): Off the top of my head, what do you want from me?

      • Freakazoid: Who man, you don't know what you're doing. What about the down sides of being a nerd?
        Nerdator: What down sides?
        Freakazoid: How about bad skin? An unusual attraction to pocket protectors? And worse, all the cute girls will just want to be friends.

        Steph: You're such a sweet guy, why ruin our special friendship?
        Nerdator: No!

      • (A whole bunch of Star Trek fans disappear)
        William Shatner: That's funny, they usually disappear after I sing Rocket Man.

      • (After the entire WB staff watch the alternate ending.)


        Steven Spielberg: (reading the script) Fade to black, the end. Hmm... Uh, what was that other option again?


        Paul Rugg: Oh yeah, we can end the show early and show some more Animaniacs reruns!


        Steven Spielberg: Right... Let's do it!


        (Now back to Animaniacs)


        Yakko, Wakko & Dot: We're animany, totally insany!


        Dot: Here's the show's namey!


        Yakko, Wakko & Dot: Animaniacs! Those are the facts!

      • (After the WB staff and Steven Spielberg watch the original ending where Dexter gets eaten by a monster.)


        Steven Spielberg: Uh, I don't get this. Uh, what is this; Dexter gets eaten and then fade out, the end? Where's Freakazoid?


        John P. McCann: Well, he's uh... He's not in the episode!


        Steven Spielberg: Not in it?! But, he's the star of the show! What are you thinking?


        Paul Rugg: Well... (laughs nervously) We were thinking of maybe ending the episode... early today!


        Jean Macurdy: And showing some more Animaniacs reruns.


        Steven Spielberg: Oh, I like that! (Animaniacs intro starts playing on screen)


        Yakko, Wakko & Dot: It's time for Animaniacs, and we're zany to the max! So just sit back and relax and you'll laugh to the max...


        Steven Spielberg: No, no, no, no! We can't do it!


        Entire WB Staff: Aww...


        Steven Spielberg: Look, we gotta get to Freakazoid.

      • Freakazoid (narrating): And in return, Bo-Ron taught me the secrets of the universe…
        Bo-Ron: Duh… It's big!
        Freakazoid: The mind boggles.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Find Emmitt Nervend: And send him home.

      • In the ep. "Next Time, Phone Ahead" Paul Rugg plays as himself. He is the blonde guy that tells Steven Spielberg why they ended the show early and what they want to do instead of airing Freakazoid! You can totally tell it's him cause he sounds exactly like Freakazoid!
