The first of many season finales, and one of the few low-key season finales. Perhaps the most dangerous experiment of season 1 was the light bulb. In the season one clip show, Jory and Jon say that Unnamed was too dirty and worn down to be of much use (this was before they began microwaving items that caught fire) and was replaced with another Sharp carousel microwave that would later be named Diane.
- Americans may be notorious for loving Wet-Naps, but they're not one of America's pastimes.
- The moist towelette has stars and stripes on it, like the American flag. Its official name is "Fresh Nap." It says so on the back. That may be why the official title says "moist towelettes" but the guys referred to them as wetnaps.
- We learn in the season 1 clip show that Unnamed was quickly retired after this experiment. She was left on the curb for the trash, and Jon said that she was so dirty that she should be sealed up and never opened again (although in later seasons, a microwave like that would be called "almost new"). Jon and Jory said she was "kinda broken" and "pretty much done", with the clue being that her light looked a little dimmer at points during the filming. They would later find out that microwaves could still work in much worse condition. Had they kept her, she might have lasted all of season 2 until the dynamite episode.
- This is the only final experiment without Riley's involvement to be a Good Idea.
- In later seasons, more climactic final experiments were attempted such as dynamite, spray paint, and firework mortars.
- Jory actually cleans the microwave a bit with the wetnaps after the episode concludes.
- Jory: Enjoy the ride, Wet-Nap!
- Jory: Why does 2 minutes sound so familiar? I don't know. Let's do it!
- Jory: So, here's the moist towelette. And it's actually warm, too. This is amazing!
