  • In the intro, Jory says they are going to microwave 16 CDs, but they only end up microwaving 15 CDs. This is because one of those CDs was used in episode #62 to see if Sandra was still working.
  • Somebody does donate a laser disc for season 4, which is microwaved in episode #85. Jory was right, though--it did end up being another bad idea.
  • Jon has a collection of 45+ AOL CDs.
  • The CDs were blank Staples' CDs, but one of them said "Back-up CD '02" on it.
  • One CD was a "good idea" but 15 CDs was a "bad idea", perhaps due to the smell. This isn't the first time a larger amount of a "good idea" item became a "bad idea", this also happened with soap.


  • Jory: Here at the Jory Caron Laboratory, safety is one of our concerns. See what I did there?

Jon: It's no longer number one!

  • Jory: I love everything about [Helga]. I especially love that the display works and there's a button for the door to open. That's right, baby! That's something Sandra could never give to me!

Jon: Satisfaction!

  • Jon: You asked for it, and this is what you get!
  • Jory: It's like Aurora Borealis is happening inside of our microwave!
