Good idea- baked like big cookie.


  • Riley claimed that the Play-Doh tasted salty.
  • Whoopi doesn't have an echo in her cavern.
  • The flavor of Gatorade Riley was drinking appears to have been lemon-lime.
  • Jon's favorite type of pizza is Hawaiian; Jory's favorite is pepperoni.
  • The blooper of the fan falling over when Jory claps his hands is the first time we ever see Jory's clapping method of synchronizing the cameras.
  • Whoopi doesn't looks like Deku Link from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Masks.
  • This playdough was similar to Squidgy's playdough from Mastermind Toys in Canada. The series is Justin Time and Justin Time GO! on Netflix. Available at Target USA.


  • Jory: (in New York/Italian accent) Hey! Welcome to "Is it a Good Idea to Microwave This?" I'm your host, Jory Caron. I'm just, you know, makin' a little pizza over here, out of Play-Doh... Oh, maybe some pink cheese on this, right? Wait- no, it's sauce, isn't it? That doesn't even make sense! I don't even know what I'm talkin' about here! Aw, man! Let's put some veggies on this. And I don't even have a brick oven, so I guess you're wondering how I'm gonna cook this, right? Microwave it! Have a slice!

Jon: That pizza looks awful!

  • Riley: (after bite of Play-Doh) What is in this pizza?!

Jory: You mean my Play-Doh-giorno pizza?

  • Jon: A regular brick oven pizza is probably in there for around five minutes, so put it in there for three.

Jory: Five minutes?! I'm gonna go ahead and put it in there for FOUR minutes!

Jon: That's even better!

Jory: I know!

  • Jon: Just because YOU can't see inside the microwave means WE can't, either!
  • Riley: (to Jon) You'd better watch your mouth there, son!

Jon: F*ck you!

  • Jory: I'm guessing this is going to be, like, the one experiment that doesn't catch fire.

Jon: No! It'll find a way. Whoopi's resourceful!

  • Jory: It's like a kiln, it's a kiln for lazy people!
