Episode Guide
Previous Episode: #256: Lava Lamp
Next Episode: #258: Christmas Tree



After that huge lava lamp explosion, Jory and the guys come to the conclusion that Penelope could really use these tampons!


  • This is the first time we officially learn that microwave girls apparently menstruate.
  • 3:00 is the official time of the month.
  • Penelope prefers Tampax super-plus tampons.
  • Lava lamp menstrual cycles are heavy flow.
  • This episode aired on a Wednesday instead of a Friday, because Jon wanted to review TRON: Legacy the Friday it came out.


  • Jory: (to Riley) Why are you in such a bad mood?

Riley: (deadpan) I'm not in a bad mood.

Jon: You SEEM like you're in a bad mood.

Jory: Is it that time of the season for you, Riley?

Riley: Yeah!

Jory: "TMS"- you know, that's pretty close to "PMS"!

  • Jory: It really is convenient how tampons were our next episode.

Jon: Yeah, I don't think that's "convenient."

Jory: So much as we planned it?

  • Jon: Release the tampons!
  • Jory: This looks like a burnt tampon! Do you want to look like you're smoking a burnt tampon?
