Episode Guide

Next Episode: #266: Shotgun microphone



  • There is a bonus episode for this experiment that shows the guys' first reaction to inhaling the smelling salts. The popular reaction to the season 9 bonus episodes made Jon announce that there may be a bonus episode for every season 10 experiment. This eventually didn't happen though.
  • Jory mentions at the end of the episode that they should use the smelling salts to wake themselves up when they get tired during filming. This is a very good idea, as Jory and Riley seem much perkier and more alert in this episode and subsequent episodes than they did prior to the smelling salts.
  • 8 minutes was chosen for the microwaving time, because there were 8 seasons of 24, and the character Jack Bauer from that TV show often used smelling salts.
  • In the annotations, Jon said that Jory's Jack Bauer impersonation sounded more like Richard Nixon.\
  • In the bonus video, Riley repeatedly said that the smelling salts smelled like "really strong kitty litter," most likely because of the high amount of ammonia in cat urine.


  • Riley: Two Krakens!

Jory: (in monster voice) I'll crack 'em!

Riley: (in monster voice) Two crack-'ems!

Jory: (in monster voice) Release and crack 'em!

  • Jory: (referring to popped smelling salt cartridges) There's another one! Why do I miss it?! Goddamn!

Jon: (referring to how dark Penelope is) There's nothing to miss...

  • Jory: You can actually microwave them, and then throw 'em at friends!

Riley: Oh, yeah!

Jory: Don't do that!

Jon: Like Pop-Its? POP IT!

  • Riley: That was a good clap!

Jory: Well, I HAVE it. You know, when you have the clap, you can't lose it!

Riley: Oh, dear! The clap? Like chlamydia?!


From bonus video:

  • Jory: It's not that bad. It's just, it's a shocker! It's like the first time you flicked your testicles!
