  • They only ended up microwaving a cup's worth of the detergent, not the whole bottle, because they felt it was silly to waste a whole bottle of perfectly good detergent.
  • Jory thinks the number 3 is a good number.
  • If you're looking for a type of detergent that is good to microwave, look for one with chips of tin foil inside.


  • Jory: (tips detergent bottle over) That's pretty much what I sound like after a bean burrito!
  • Jory: Her name is Helga, and she's basically died for this job!
  • Jory: I'm gonna have to clean off that screen of the microwave, because Helga's dirty!

Jon: You ALWAYS get your microwaves dirty!

Jory: What can I say? What can I say?

  • Jory: That's how GOOD this season is right now! Even something you thought was gonna be crap is not half-bad!
  • Jory: Helga would never hurt me like that, would you, Helga? No, you wouldn't! No, you wouldn't!
