Crow T. Robot [8-10] & Observer aka Brain Guy [8-10]
Tom Servo [2-10], Professor Bobo [8-10] & Cambot
Magic Voice [4-7] & Pearl Forrester [7-10]
Mike Nelson [5-10]
Actually this has happened more times on MST3K. It also occurs with Mike and Servo, but you don't notice it as much since Crow's mouth is more visible (although you can see Servo say something to Mike at the start of Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders, but whatever he said is muted out). This is the work of editor Brad Keely, whom The Brains encourage to cut riffs out that seem unnecessary (usually in places where there's a ton of riffing, and not enough of the actual movie to be heard).
When the man gets into his car in the 'A Case of Spring Fever' segment, Crow's mouth is moving, but he dosn't say anything. Did he say something the creators decided to censor?
Tom: (as Mick sees a mannequin) See, Mike, I'd go out with that. That's how desperate I am!
Crow: (describing Alma) Kevin McHale, crossdresser.
Geri: I'm sorry.
Alma: It's all raht(right).
Mike: It is all raht(rot) in this movie.
(Geri looks at Mick's worm bite)
Geri: I never saw one bite like that.
Roger: I did.
Tom: Hoh, boy, here we go.
Crow: (describing Roger) If Steve Young and Alvin the Chipmunk had a baby.
Crow: (at the end of the short) Jam Handy reminds you to keep your preserves in a convenient place.
Tom: (over an interior shot of the house in messy state) Never ask Tom Arnold to housesit.
(over a closeup of Mick)
Crow: There's a lot of Elton John in that face.
Mike: Wow, most faces can't take much.
Mike: Why does it not surprise me that he has weak ankles?
Crow: (over a shot looking up at people) Cinematography by Seymore Butts.
Crow: (as the sheriff's girlfriend, as they lay in the bed in the jail cell) Are we just going to have afterglow or are we going to have sex?
Crow: (describing Mick) He looks like sentient artery plaque.
Mike: (over a shot of worms) Come on men, make everything loamy!
Alma: Mama, don't scare me.
Tom: I spent my life scaring you, child. It's my job.
Roger: (to Mick) You gon' be th' worm face!
Mike: No, you're gonna be the worm face!
(Mick and Geri talk about the skull)
Geri: That thing can bring $100 dollars at an auction! He was talking about going into the business...oh, Mick!
Tom: The business of selling human bones at auctions?
Mike: Wow, this is the South.
Tom: I guess.
Geri: Then who...
Crow: Is paler than me?
Mick: The worms.
Tom: 'A certain convocation of politic worms!'
Crow: (to Mick) Hey, Richie Cunningham, tuck your shirt in.
Crow: Mr. Beardsley?
Mike: Can you tell me where Mr. Beardsley is?
(Mick and Geri leave her house)
Mike: Mr. Beardsley!
Tom: (as Geri) Oh, shut up!
Crow: So, how is it possible that Jerry Reed isn't in this movie?

Mick: You see Roger around?
Crow: Let's ask Mr. Beardsley. Mr. Beardsley!!
Mike: (describing Geri's car) The Ford station wagon: unsmall at any speed.
Sherrif: (to Mick) What business you have in Fly Creek?
Crow: I wonder what be so fly about that creek?
Mike: (as Mick wanders through the swamp) He's actually lost in the wooly swamp.
Crow: Most bizarre freak of nature ever recorded... oh, broccoflower.
Naomi: The sink is acting up.
Mike: It's sassing me back.
Tom: Board to Fly Creek: Drop Dead!
On screen: This is the story...
Mike: Of a man named Jed.
Crow: Look, God has a spring!
Mike: (describing the golf course in the short) Welcome to Divot Hills.
(after the springs have been restored)
Crow : (as Jimmy Stewart) Merry Christmas, you wonderful old couch!
Mike: (after all the spings are gone) Well, I still won't have to fix the couch, so eat me.
(describing Gilbert, the man in the short)
Crow: Can't decide between short sleeves or long? Split the difference!
Mike: Well, it's not as bad as the time I said 'No muscle tone.' Never recovered from that.
Tom: (in the short, as the golfers have their backs to the camera) More grey asses!
Tom: (describing the car in the short) The 1941 Dull Grey Mobile.
Crow: Where does Coily fit into God's plan for us?
Tom: (as the title of the short appears) Me, I'd rather have a case of Bass Ale.
(during the SOL safety check)
(Geri and Mick arrive at Mr. Beardsley's)
Geri: Mr. Beardsley!
Mike: Your victims are here!
Geri: Mr. Beardsley!
(Tom imitates a rifle shot)
Geri: Well, where is he?
Crow: It's almost like he's not here or something.
Geri: Mr. Beardsley!!
Mike: I'm only going to call you like 50 more times!
Geri: The worms attacked Roger!
Tom: Well, he's got a layer of topsoil, honey, you can't blame them.
Tom: (as Mick finds Willie's body) Stop having worms in your body, you idiot!
Tom: (as Geri, to Roger) Ah'm charmed by yur' creepiness.
Roger: I'm ready to tell Dad I don't wanna take over no worm farm.
Tom: It's so sad how many small family worm farms are being taken over by corporate worm farms.
Mike: (as Geri) I'm used to the rats, silverfish, and cockroaches, but this!
Gilbert: Hey, Joe, wake up!
Crow: It's Coily's army of darkness! Look!
Crow: Well, Billie Joe McAllister jumped off the Talahachee Bridge again.
Crow: (as Alma carries a candle) These candles made from dad burn real good.
(as Roger throws the plywood on Mick)

(a bit later) A badly dressed swizzle stick! Oh, no, it's her.
Mike: (as Mick grimaces) Leave me, skin pigment!
Gypsy does not appear in this episode.
Running Gag: Mike and the 'bots yelling "Mr. Beardsley!" throughout the movie.
A Case of Spring Fever was actually parodied in episode 317, Viking Women and the Sea Serpent, with the Willie the Waffle skit.
A Case of Spring Fever is the final short to air on MST3K.
Der Wiesse Engel:
When Mick goes through the dentist's files, the crew mutters names of racist and alleged racist organizations, including 'Der Wiesse Engel.' This is actually an allusion to Josef Mengele, the infamous 'Angel of Death' in the Auschwitz concentration camp. He also acquired the nickname 'Der Wiesse Engel,' or 'Angel of White,' because he at times personally directed new arrivals and in his white coat with his arms outstretched, inmates would say he looked like a white angel.
Crow asked where is the kid with the banjo, which would be from the movie Deliverance.
Crow described Alma as "Kevin McHale, crossdresser." This is a reference to the former Boston Celtics great. His Minnesota connection? He is a native, and went to the University of Minnesota.
During the beginning of the movie, Tom says 'Board to Fly Creek: Drop Dead.' This is a reference to the New York Daily News headline "Ford To City: Drop Dead' in 1975 after President Ford refused to help New York City out of its financial troubles.
