  • Interestingly, neither Jon nor Jory ever refers to the nail polish remover by its chemical name, acetone.
  • In the intro, the bottle of nail polish remover is full. When microwaved, it's only about 1/4 full. This is another continuity error from the month-long break between Sandra's death and Helga's start.
  • Jory once again adds tin foil to an experiment, to make sure there would be fire.


  • Jory: Now, it says, "Warning: Extremely flammable." Good idea?
  • Jory: [Helga] has a minute-plus button, a "beverage", and a "popcorn." A "popcorn", folks, a "popcorn"!
  • Jon: Why'd you put tin foil in there?

Jory: Well, you need a spark. You need a spark to, you know, just do some sh*t!

  • Jory: So, there's some of your nail polish. I'm not even gonna put the cap in there, 'cause who needs that?

Jon: Jory, you are the master of disaster!

Jory: The master of many disguises!

  • Jory: If it DOESN'T do anything in 2 minutes, I don't care! So, that's how long I'm gonna put it in there for, 2 minutes.

Jon: You sure?

Jory: If it takes 6 minutes to do something, it's not worth seeing. That's MY viewpoint, I'm Jory Caron!

Jon: Asshole!

  • Jory: Everything's bigger in Texas!

Jon: This is Boston!

  • Jory: I was wrong, you know, it happens!

Jon: A lot of nothing going on right now!
