  • Except for season 8, a light bulb of some kind has been microwaved each season. These flicker bulbs are the 5th type of light microwaved in season 7.
  • Season 7 had, by far, the most light bulbs microwaved. A total of 152 lights were microwaved throughout the season.
  • The flicker bulbs melted itself on to the glass of Melissa's plate.
  • Jory says that light bulbs are consistently a good idea on the show, but the first episode/light bulb was a bad idea. But even this was really a good idea, because Jory says in this episode that all light bulbs are good, even if he said they were bad in the past.


  • Jory: They're frickin' flicker bulbs. Of course they'll flicker in my frickin' microwave. It's a given!
  • Jory: And our GoldStar microwave, Melissa. She's not a big ol' lady. She's actually kind of, you know, just average, but what she makes up for? It's on the inside!
  • Jory: I thought it would flicker.

Jon: Well, apparently, the flicker bulbs- false advertising!

  • Jon: What I've noticed about light bulbs? They seem to have a lot of second life. They'll go out, but then, they'll come back for a little bit, and then, they'll go away. You know what? They're a lot like Brett Favre!
