I loved the "I made for TV love you"" from San Fransisco International. 

Tom's hillbilly song from the Side Hackers training sequence.

And EVERY time crow says "Kitty", to some dangerous animal on the screen.

Still, one of my absolutely favorite lines from ANY MST3K episode is during the short called "Home Economics", as all the girls in the college gather for an assembly, and the dude behind the podium(Joel) says "Your period, and mine. A lecture..."

Which reminds me of one of my all time favorites, shortly after that when they show the woman at the podium and Crow says "I took several heavy blows to cheeks with lead pipe."

I think the bicycle song in Gamera vs. Guiron is one of my all time favorite MST3K moments.

"We're gonna ride our bicycles. We're gonna go and have some fun. We're gonna fill our hearts with love. When we ride our bicycles."

And so on...

And, of course,

"Normal view! Normal View! NORMAL VIEW! NORMAL VIEW!"

We sang that for YEARS.

Ah yes, the immortal NORMAL VIEW song. My friends and I would sing many a rendition of that during Dragon*Con last year. I expect we'll do it again this year. Just insert a word in place of "Normal" and sing away!!

Alas, not my best Dragon*Con this year; we got stuck in a TINY room at the Hyatt (AGAIN!), and we were so broke, we didn't even bother visiting the dealer's room once.

That sux. I've heard so many horror stories about the Hyatt... The endless wait for the four elevators, the constant issues with the Fire Marshal, etc.

I just wish I had the looks to pull off a Dr. Forrester or Observer costume... I'd love to represent the MST3K community!! The best Mistie costume was definitely the guy dressed as Torgo, with his abnormally large legs and theme song playing from an unseen speaker on his person...    ;D

I'm laughing just reading some of these!

The song medley at the end of Werewolf gets me pretty much every time.

The riffs in Catalina Caper about the villian Lakopolous, such as "He's the top-olous!".  It's very repetitive, but it cracks me up every time.

As for the funny names in Space Mutiny, you folks do realize they did the same schtick in 2 other episodes, right?  One might get the impression that no one here has seen any episodes from before the Sci-Fi years.

Everytime Rowsdower's name is mentioned in The Final Sacrifice and in Horrors of Party Beach  "My plastic hair is furious!"

Well, yeah, I know they did it before, but it's the sheer number of names in Space Mutiny.

These are the "things" that come to my mind, el pronto...

I enjoy watching people's mental illness. (Mike on the self-deprecating Jack Frost) "Jack Frost"

Just drink him in. (Crow on the greatness of Toblerone. Just thinking of him makes me giggle.) "Escape 2000"

Teddddddd Nelson. Ted Nelson. Ted Nelson. Nelson, Nelson. Nelson. Nelson, Nelson, Nelson, Nelson. (the Ted Nelson score from Mike & the Bots, and I've been known to blurt this out at work on occasion to create some faux tension) "The Incredible Melting Man"

Go to hell! Piss off!! (Mike and Crow ad-libbing for the cranky old storekeeper in one of my all-time favorite MST3K moments) "The Brute Man"

Goodbye, Joe! "Werewolf"

All of Werewolf is brilliant, but I particularly liked "This werewolf is an herbivore. Fortunatley, this guy's name is Herb." And "He's being attacked by a Berenstein Bear!"

And "Should I follow him? What do you folks think?"

And pretty much anything else in Werewolf, come to think of it.  ;D
