Colin anchors "Weird Newscasters" with Greg as his dominatrix, Wayne as a secretary who finds a photocopy of someone's butt in her in tray, and Ryan as someone about to die whose life flashes before his eyes; "Hats"; a messed-up "Greatest Hits" edition of "Songs of College"; Greg, Ryan, and Colin celebrate in "Film Dub"; Ryan, Colin, and Wayne sing "Show-Stopping Numbers" in a toll booth.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • At the end during World's Worst, when Drew did his Jerry Lewis impression, it seemed that the other 3 were laughing so long that they had to cut something out. You see that because all are laughing until the camera fixes on Drew. In the next, wider shot Colin and Ryan are dead serious again.

    • If you noticed, Drew doesn't say, "Using the last line that they just said," as he usually does, he says, "Based on the last line they just said". Perhaps it was the first time they played?

    • Did you notice that none of the guys used the line they were buzzed on to start their Show Stopping Numbers?

  • QUOTES (11)

  • NOTES (3)

    • This is the episode with the "TAPIOOOOCA!" bit in Greatest Hits. It's one of the fans' favorite moments, due to Ryan's collapsing into uncontrollable laughter in reaction to Colin's unexpected response. Ryan is normally very good at remaining straight faced during scenes, so when something breaks the facade, people love it. Other rare moments when Ryan loses control are during the infamous "THE CAT!" Improbable Mission game and when Colin screeches "BACKSTREETBOYS??" during Songs of The Western.

    • Notice the odd time structure in Greatest Hits.
      First bit (Colin and Ryan) = 2:19
      Second bit (Wayne) = 0:32
      Third bit (Colin and Ryan) = 1:06
      Fourth bit (Wayne) = 0:47

    • Notice the balance in World's Worst. Colin stepped up once (well, twice, but only got to do something funny once), Greg went up twice, Drew went up three times, and Ryan went up four times.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Ryan: "Alma Matter, Alma Fatter"
      Here's something I found so interesting and nit-pick worthy. The second song, named by Ryan, is entitled "Alma Matter Alma Father." Though Wayne is taken aback by it and misunderstands it as something like "Alma Matter, From My Father," Ryan was making a reference to the Allan Sherman song "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah." But here's the funny part. The original song goes as so...
      Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah
      Here I am at, Camp Grenada
      That was so clever on Ryan's part. A very obscure reference to the previous "Grenada" gag, and he manages to incorporate the parody title into a college-related pun. I loooved that. That was "Erik Estrada and Abe Vigoda in Fish and Chips" clever. Did anyone else catch onto it?
