Jory asks the Magic 8 ball if it can microwave it, but it refuses, Jory then does it anyways. Ryan chants for it's demise, but Jory thinks he wouldn't. The Magic 8 ball releases steam while it is inside the microwave, then leave a massive pool of blue liquid all over the plate. The result is it is a good idea to microwave the ball, but leaves a big, blue mess all over the plate.


  • The inside of a Magic 8 Ball looks like Exxon Valdez mess.
  • Jon and Jory chose to put the Magic 8 Ball upside down in the microwave, so it would "shake itself to a conclusion."
  • Jory had to give Sandra a "love tap" in this episode to make her turn on.
  • This is Sandra's 4th "good idea" in a row, despite Jory saying that they haven't had too many "good ideas" so far this season.


  • Jory: So, Magic 8 Ball, is it a good idea to microwave you? (reads Magic 8 Ball's response) "My sources say 'no'." Well, MY sources say, "I don't care!"
  • Jory: And, as always, everything I've ever dreamed of, the Sharp carousel microwave.

Jon: That's what you said about Diane!

Jory: Shut up! This is SANDRA! And she's better than Diane!

  • Jon: (to Magic 8 Ball) Is it a good idea to microwave you? I don't give a sh*t!

Jory: Probably not!

  • Jon: (in response to Magic 8 Ball turning over and spilling) All over the floor!
  • Jory: I'll bet the soap will absorb some stuff! Just put some of that down on there...

Jon: That's not salt on snow, pal! It's just gonna make it worse!
