  • Jory was in an RTV skit about Duck Hunt, which Jon provided a link to in the video.
  • Riley wanted to use 19:85 as the microwave time, since that's the year the NES came out.
  • At 2:17 in the video, when the Zapper starts glowing again, Jon hilariously says something that sounds like "Oh, booga-booga-bob!"


  • Jory: Headshot! Headshot!
  • Jon: It's just "microwave." It's not "turntable", it's not "carousel." It's boring!

Jory: It has "turbo defrost."


  • Jory: Put in this Zapper over here.

Jon: With the entire cord?!

Jory: With the entire cord!

Jon: That could be a bad idea, Jory...

Jory: Or an amazing one!

  • Jon: There's no "add-30"? What kind of microwave is this, Whoopi?!
  • Jory: You may be wondering, is it a good idea to microwave a Nintendo Zapper?

Jon: Whenever I can taste through my nose, I don't wonder!

Jory: It's not a good idea. It doesn't smell very good in here, and there was also a mysterious liquid inside the microwave.

Jon: And that's NEVER good!

Jory: Liquid and electronics? Friends, no, they do NOT mix!

  • Jory: Let's microwave this before that f*cking dog shows up!
