What riffs still get you every single time?
« on: February 26, 2008, 10:08:44 AM »
I looked all through and couldn't find a post like this which shocked me.  Unless there is one and I didn't see it.  In which case I am dumb.

ANYWAY, which riffs do you find yourself rolling on the floor at even after a hundred+ views? 

For me, any riff that keeps coming back.  The "Mr. Beardsley" stuff from Squirm kills me everytime.  And from "The Thing That Couldn't Die" the lines "I admire her ability to know where the hell he is" and "also starring Suzanne Pleshette" have left me with tears in my eyes every time I watch.  Obviously there are many others, but I wanted to get the ball rolling.

So what about you?  Do you like things?  I sure do.

I like things.

There are a few things that get me every time:
All the names in Space Mutiny, especially Tom's "Bob Johnson. Oh, wait..."
Crow's nosejob at the end of Parts. I'm giggling to myself now just thinking about it.
The champagne bottle opening in Werewolf and the follow-up honking from Mike & the bots.

I like quite a few from MST3K:The Movie.

Like: "More importantly is who we are and what we're doing here?" and why do I have a picture of a giant burger on the wall?
or, "Tonight I will ram my orthopositor down your throat and lay my eggs in your chest, but I'm not an alien!"
Heck, there are tonnes more.

Or some of the lines from the short: Snow Thrills. ""Fast becoming one of the most popular of winter sports is shi-ing, and shi-ing is the correct pronunciation they tell us." And your full of skit

or, "And this is Ski-Joring" or Shi-hoaring

You realize this thread's about MST3K, not Rifftrax, right?
Imrahil: Don't care about Riding with Death.

Bob: Turkey.

Action Batch:  Woah, let's all mellow out and rap about this.

Ooh and I almost forgot the slow pan up from "Future War."  "Ladies and gentlemen, Fred Burrows!"  I'm laughing at that just thinking about it.

It's a riff that's featured in MST3k and the Film Crew DVDs, but I still laugh when we see a close-up of someone where there's no background except for a gray surface and one of the guys comments on the person being in another universe.

It's not exactly a riff but the obvious cardboard camera in Future War makes me laugh out loud every time.

But here are some riffs that get me every time:

Cave Dwellers:  Paul Wellstone-type-guy:  "Ator has mastered the theory of flight."  Crow: "Theory of flight?  I"ll teach you the theory of fist!"

Space Mutiny: Captain Santa: "This is my daughter."  Mike: "We're basically the same age."

Merlin's Shop: "My reviews have destroyed entire cities!"

Plenty more but those are all that come to mind at the moment.
Imrahil: Don't care about Riding with Death.

Bob: Turkey.

oooh!  oooh!  I like things!

The one that gets me rolling on the floor every time is in Giant Spider Invasion.  When there's the two people talking on the porch, and the scene cuts back out to an establishing shot while they're talking, and you can't hear them at all.  Mike quips, "A movie that makes the bold choice NOT to include the audience."

That reminds me of a riff in Giant Spider Invasion that I always laugh at:

*Guy puts something in a helicopter*

Tom Servo: ""Audiences won't soon forget when the thing we-didn't-know-what-it-was was put into the helicopter by the guy we didn't know."
Imrahil: Don't care about Riding with Death.

Bob: Turkey.

Speaking of spiders...I liked the Sheriff in 313 - Earth Vs. Spider "Now I suppose you're gonna tell me this is a cave?!?!" as they are walking through a cave

Operation Double 007:
"There might be bees burning in there!  I've got to save them!"
"I'm going to go run through the sprinkler now!  Whoopee!"
*Actually, every instance of a person onscreen leaping through the air with an accompanying cry of "Whoopee!" gets my vote.*
"All right.  Here's the church here's the steeple, open the doors and go... to... sleeple."

"Manos":
"Doggie go walkies?  Hm?  That's a good doggie!"
"The goddamn car won't start!" "Gee, that's a real bitch, daddy."

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians:
"And nobody will ever know that Santa Claus has been kidnapped by martians." "Do you realize what you just said?"

Hard to pick out a single riff, but all of "Giant Spider Invasion" still makes me laugh, when it aired the first time my sides were literally sore after it was over, it still cracks me up after many viewings.

The part in "the wild world of batwoman" during the meeting when the 2 girls are playing tug-o-war with the horseshoe always cracks me up.  I can't even remember who makes the joke there, since I'm already starting to laugh from it being such a stupid thing on screen when the joke comes.

The skits that always crack me up are the ones from "agent from HARM", luckily I've had that on tape and could transfer it to DVD to watch over and over, movie was so-so but Mike's trial was hilarious.
