Audio Note
­We had a bunch of technical difficulties…
     —Dan @18:20


Dan: On this episode we discuss Monster Trucks.
Stuart: You're welcome. … guysss! ('Cause I made you watch this movie.)

Official Show NotesEdit

"We discuss the movie based on a not-really pun, Monster Trucks. Meanwhile Elliott talks about 'Love in an Elevator' for waaay too long, Stu asks some Saved by the Bell questions, Dan’s penis habits are described at length, and we're all sorry about the technical problems in this episode."

Movie SummaryEdit


­It's like your classic alien-being-befriends-a-kid, and-they-have-to-go-save-the-other-aliens-from-an-evil-company-or-government-or-whatever. Like, it's as template of that as it could possibly be.

Episode HighlightsEdit


Announcement: Fire — the untamed element, oldest of man's mysteries. Giver of warmth, destroyer of forests… right now, this building is on fire!
Woman: What?!
Announcement: Yes! The building is on fire! Leave the building! Enact the age old drama of self-preservation!

Movie PitchesEdit

Dystopian Saved by the Bell Feature Film
Based in the universe of "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" by Harlan Ellison, sort of like in The Matrix. @35:40
Casting Choices


Elliott: It struck me as like an adorable version of the squid from Prometheus.
Stuart: Oh, I was thinking that too! Not quite as sexy, though. The squid from Prometheus was very sexy.
Elliott: Oh, tell me about it! Just leave me alone with that squid for a couple minutes!

  • ­You were trapped in a vortex of vocal fry.
         —Stuart, to Dan @23:00
Dan: Yeah, the long periods of silence are not because you guys are fucking yappin', and yappin', and yappin'. Anyway —
Stuart: That describes ten years of my life, Dan!
— @59:10
Stuart: I mean, I guess this has been an episode where I've made fun of Dan masturbating a lot. [cf. @02:00, 06:20, 21:45, 27:35, 29:20, 1:00:20, 1:44:10]
Elliott: Me too. Dan: I'm sorry. You don't masturbate. You're sexless.
Dan: It's fine. I know everyone does it.
Stuart: I mean, it's cool —
Dan: Elliott has a look on his face like: ‘Not me!’
Elliott: Not me! Well… are we on the record here?
Stuart: Elliott says a little ghost comes and jacks him off.
Elliott: Look, Dan Aykroyd tipped me off to this ghost blowjob service.
Stuart: It's incredible.
Elliott: It's amazing. And the best part is, they unbutton your pants for you.
Stuart: That's crazy! Why does it even do that?
Elliott: Yeah, I don't know…
Stuart: Just do it inside the pants.

Stuart: How do I sound? Do I sound good?
