  • The big disco ball was donated by "Live Time" moderator CJ, who had his first radio interview with Jon and Jory before filming of the season 5 intros began.
  • This episode came out in time for Christmas, because the disco ball also looked like a Christmas ornament.
  • Jon mentioned in the annotations that the "hopefully" all three of them said simultaneously during Whoopi's intro was not planned.
  • Whoopi is the first microwave girl since Sandra to have a handle for her door instead of a button.
  • Whoopi was named for comedienne Whoopi Goldberg, since neither of them have eyebrows.
  • This episode's outtakes is the first time Jory sings Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl", the second being in the LED stuff outtakes.


  • Jory: And some say, "Disco is dead." And I say, "I actually killed it in my microwave!"
  • Jory: It's to protect our nuts, because nobody likes roasted...

Riley: (interrupts) Balls! Disco balls, in their microwave!

  • Jory: Ooh! Look at that! Nice, big, spacious interior!

Jon: Oh, yeah!

Riley: More junk in da trunk, if you know what I mean!

  • Jon: Dude, in honor of the 1970s and disco as a whole, put it in there for 7 minutes!

Riley: What?!

Jory: I thought you were gonna say 19:70!

Jon: Just do it, man!

  • Jon: Aw, dudes, you can see inside her. Whoopi! Am I right? Come on, disco! Whoopi!
  • Jory: So, now, they're all adhesively stuck to the tray, which is awesome, because I have to use this tray again!
  • Jon: Yeah, dude, fight the disco! (singing) Shake your booty, shake your booty!
  • Jory: We took something that was really cool and made it into something that's just a sticky ball. And no one likes sticky balls, right?

Jon: I hate sticky balls, almost as much as I hate disco!
