  • Trivia

    • Dan Frischman says he doesn't think any other movies besides Predator can claim to star two future governors (Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jessse Ventura), forgetting that they also appeared together that same year in The Running Man. They also were both in 1997's Batman & Robin.

    • Hal Sparks: (on Predator) He looks like a toothed vagina.

    • Tom Papa: (on Throw Momma from the Train) It's like if your angry gym teacher had sex with a Shar-Pei. That was momma.

    • Chris Jericho: (on Billy Idol's "Mony, Mony") To this day, when you hear it, there are 45-year-old uncles at weddings yelling, "get laid, get ____ed!"

  • Allusions

    • During the segment on the microwave oven, Joel Stein describes how putting a marshmallow in one would yield something like the Stay Puft man, an enemy during the climax to Ivan Reitman's 1984 film Ghostbusters.

    • While talking about Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wesley Crusher, the guys from Modern Humorist call him, "the Doogie Howser of space navigation," comparing Wesley's advanced skills during adolescence to the similar combination in the title character from Doogie Howser, MD.
