Episode Guide

  • The "African-American light" was microwaved in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, but the episode ended up not airing on his birthday.
  • Since this was the last non-finale episode of the season, Riley purposely did not interrupt Jory, and the "roasted nuts" line was finally said in completion.
  • For some reason, the black light gave off more bluish-purple light on camera than it really did in the laboratory. This may have been because the camera picked up more UV rays.


  • Jory: It's an African-American light.

Jon: Jory, don't you mean "black light"?

Jory: No, they don't actually like to be called that. It's just an African-American light. And, you know, I have a dream that this will be in my microwave in the next 5 minutes.

  • Jon: We never give any of our microwaves a last name.

Jory: It's "Caron."

Jon: "Whoopi Caron"? Oh! Oh, I just got it!

Jory: I make them take my last name, and then, I kill 'em... They want pre-nups. I'm, like, "No!"

  • Jory: Yeah, it's an African-American light, and don't ever disrespect them like that again, or Whoopi will kick your ass!

Jon: Whoopi's black, too. She knows what this is about!

  • Jon: Stick your long, fluorescent tube inside Whoopi!
  • Jon: (referring to camera zoom) Let's start out close, and then, pull out.

Jory: Oh, yeah! That's what she said!

  • Jory: Am I feeling some excitement? Is it palpable? Can I taste it? I think I can! (to Riley) Can you taste it right now?

Riley: I can taste a LOT of things right now!

Jon: I think it's the battery acid!

Jory: I think it's the fillet of fish we had right there! That was the worst day!
