    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (20)

      • Simon Doonan: The general public had this idea that disco was cheesy and inauthentic and not a valid form of creative musical expression. And of course they were right, but that's what was so great about disco.

      • Patrice Oneal: The White Shadow—an unathletic white man is in control of all these superhuman negroes, and there's a Puerto Rican or two slipped in there.

      • Rachael Harris: Drink Tab, and you'll be f*** able. Okay! (takes a sip)

      • Michael Colton: Original title of "Is She Really Going Out with Him?" was, uh, "She's Not Gonna F*** Him, Is She?"

      • Rich Eisen: It's basically, 'let's take the funny guy, put a beard on him, make him serious, and have, like, a real medical program,' so I was one-and-done for Trapper John, M.D. But it was still better than AfterMASH, that's for damn sure!

      • Mo Rocca: I think a Happy Meal would've made me happy had it included love and acceptance.

      • Brian Unger: (on "The Devil Went Down to Georgia") It just was a yarn in this song that kind of caught the public consciousness and, and I think it was fun for people to sort of memorize the lyrics and recite them back to one another when, um, when there was nothing to drink.

      • Michael Colton: (on "The Devil Went Down to Georgia") Devil plays the fiddle? Devil's kind of gay.

      • Rich Eisen: Stands for Entertainment Sports Programming Network. See if Stuart Scott knows that off the top of his head.
        Stuart Scott: I don't know.

      • Gilbert Gottfried: (on The Amityville Horror) Now when you watch this movie you keep thinking "well, why doesn't Margot Kidder just call Superman?"

      • James Brolin: (clip of him in The Amityville Horror) Oh, God, I'm coming apart!!
        Mo Rocca: And this was years before his marriage to Barbra Streisand.

      • Loni Love: What is a "Rock Lobster"?
        Fred Schneider: It is a pretty nutty song.

      • John Melendez: [Frank Zappa] was cool; he was definitely cool. I don't know about the names he chose for his kids, though.
        Michael Ian Black: Dweezil, Moon Unit, Ahmet, and Diva.
        Cassandra Peterson: That's what kind of name you get when you have hippie parents.

      • Willie Garson: (on Trapper John, M.D.'s Gonzo) When I'm at the hospital, I really don't want to see my doctor walking out of his mobile home.

      • Michael Ian Black: (on the White Sox's Disco Demolition Night) They were blowin' up music. You have the option of not listening to the music. That's fine, too, but they were so angry at the music, they thought 'lets just, let's literally destroy music.'

      • Annabelle Gurwitch: The Rose was a movie about Bette Midler's perm. How could that perm fit on one person?

      • John Melendez: I'll tell you why they called it a Happy Meal, though. It was because you just give the kid this box and you could forget about him for an hour.

      • Jeff Stilson: There would always be that one guy who was always either goin' to quit the team or get kicked off the team and then The White Shadow would, you know, have a talk with him and turn him around.

      • Michael Ian Black: (on "Is She Really Going Out with Him?") It's about the guy that I was in high school, for example, who, you know... "Is she really going out with him? That douche?"

      • Simon Doonan: '79—The movie Hair came out. I knew there were problems the moment I saw the horse ballet.

    • NOTES (1)

      • On-screen guides cite The China Syndrome, the Three Mile Island incident, and Soap as being topics of discussion, but none are featured in the episode.
