Episode 46: Holy Guinea Pig!: June 26, 2022

Tut's Case Is Shut
September 29, 1966
"With his creation of a powerful mind control potion successful, King Tut schemes to bring Gotham City under his total control."
63 minutes

Don't Quiz RD on His Shirt! They went to sunny California to escape the humidity and Mrs. Deal's allergies. While at the Disneyland gift shop someone had the audacity to question him on his shirt/Batman knowledge/Victor Paul. He visited Universal Studios Hollywood for the first time and took 10 minutes instead of 4 hours to queue for the Studio Tour. This makes Vince nostalgic for his visits to Universal while they were filming nearby, including with an overexcited Shane Douglas and meeting Paul Stanley backstage. RD once had shrimp stuffed lobster with a friend. 

Vince: "Speaking of the Gobbeldy Gooker, Tut's Case Is Shut."
RD: "One doesn't have anything to do with the other." (:18)

The Narrator mentions things that didn't appear in the previous day.

Robin continues to be threatened by stock footage of crocodiles in a completely different outdoor place.
Tut: "
Farewell, my moldy sparrow. In the name of Anubis, great jackal-headed patron of the supercriminal, I commend you to your fate."
Vince does not know what moldy means.
Tut and Ms. Cleo Patrick decide to leave rather than see Robin's fate. "Besides, Gordon needs his pills!" 

This gives the opportunity for Batman to appear and fire a "laser" to cut bars to throw a Batrope at Robin...who misses the catch. So he swings in to get Paul as Robin personally and swing out. Robin apologizes for his blunder.
Batman: "Experience teaches slowly Robin, and at the cost of many mistakes."
RD wonders what fortune cookie he stole it off from.

Gordon in his office is on the phone: "You know how wives are!" He has to take her out for lunch hour, so O'Hara will fill in in his absence. (:26) RD wonders who would want to remain married to Gordon, who in the modern day is often depicted as divorced or in a troubled relationship. I wonder who would put up with this Gordon, unless of course he was secretly crime boss plotting with her. Thus when Ms. Patrick arrives with her pills she has to give them to O'Hara instead.
O'Hara: "I never take pills."
Patrick: "It's routine procedure."
O'Hara: "Oh okay."
Before he can take any Batman calls to warn him that there is "treachery in that office." O'Hara: "Begorrah!" Vince does not know Begorrah means.
Of course O'Hara takes the pills anyway. Tut appears demanding him on his knees, worrying RD. Cue Extreme Closeups that RD replicates with his camera. Tut speaks the secret trigger words and O'Hara walks like an Egyptian

The Duo appear at City Hall as O'Hara is suddenly dancing a jig on a ledge like Becky Lynch in NXT. Batman whispers from 20 storeys below expecting to be heard. 

Tut and Patrick are also there, and she requests the Chief to next do some gymnastics on a pole. No, really. They then see the Duo and Patrick swoons over the Dark Knight, much like her predecessor queen: "All that restitutory power in his body...or whatever he said." Tut has to pull her out by the hair for some reason. The Duo miss the two villains as they come up to O'Hara. Batman: "It's unwise to condemn what we can't understand."

Back at his lair, Tut laments that he may harm his menagerie in his plans to make 95,000 gallons of the chemical by "scarrabating" the water.
Royal Lapidary: "But remember: it's for an evil cause!"
Amenophis: "Or my name ain't Amenophis Tewfik!"
Tut: "If you say that one more time, I'm gonna slap ya. ... Batman! That big ninny!"
They plan to get at the Dark Knight through Gordon. 

In the Batcave Robin wants to get rid of Gordon and O'Hara from Tut's control. Don't we all. (:39) Alfred brings Batman glasses of buttermilk as they search for an antidote. And of course he doesn't give any to Robin. What a pal, I mean, chum.

Gordon is already controlled off-camera and calls Batman to inform him of a sphinx at Jefferson Square Park. Batman: "It's making predictions, just as I predicted." Tut is heard via rambling recording as is Gordon when the Duo appear at the park.
Gordon: "He makes a good point. This city really does need more drinking fountains. ... A quaint old-fashioned refreshments cart!"
Batman: "Thank you! That sounds refreshing!"
Of course this is an excuse for Gordon to drop a giant pill into Batman's lemonade before he takes a phone at a phone booth from actual Tut. Cue Batman eye rolling like an Egyptian: "Yes, your majesty. Of course, my good and friendly pharaoh. Your every wish is my command. I hear and obey."
He then wonders off like an Egyptian while Robin stands befuddled as the goons capture him.

They are delivered as the goons finish the vat of chemicals, and Batman hails and takes a knee to Tut: "On your knees, Bat-Brat!" When he rejects Patrick's request for the Duo after he controls the city, (he'll feed them to the crocodiles) she goes mad. RD guesses it was from all the pills. Cue Extreme Closeup.

Vince forgets Pauline's name as he gives actor Marianna Hill 8 Batpoles. RD gives her an 8 for attraction and a 15 for her performance. Vince was surprised she looked older than she was. Similar to Finella she appeared in The Godfather Part II among a few other roles. 

Batman manages to break out of the control through the power of buttermilk, although Vince was again distracted by stains on the suit. The fight has Robin delivering a full mule kick for some reason. Tut races to his truck that requires a crank to turn it on and causes a leak of the chemical all over, which is enough to break him out of his persona...this time.
Batman: "Poor deluded man. He's walking on a tightrope Robin. Ab Rabu Simbu Tu plays no favorites. Gotham City has narrowly a major catastrophe of major proportions. Too bad that such a distinguished professor in his twin trauma should become his own cavia porcellus."
Robin: "Cavia porcellus?"
Batman: "Guinea pig."

In the office Gordon apologizes for giving "polluted lemonade". Tut is also there thinking he will go to a faculty meeting: "The PTA shall hear of this!" O'Hara wants to send him to jail. Batman delegates the decision to Gordon.
Gordon: [To the camera] "So brave, so dependable, and so modest. Rare in men these days...very rare."

RD has no memory of next episode and Ma Parker. Vince made him confused by thinking actor Shelley Winters died from drowning in real life instead of just in The Poseidon Adventure. Neither saw the remake.

RD wrote about another terrible match

RD can't write about The Death of TNA while it's not yet dead. Vince was bemused they did not contact him for their 20th anniversary whatever it was.

Episode 45: Holy Sarcophagus!: June 19, 2022

The Spell of Tut
September 28, 1966
"King Tut returns with a new plan involving preserved specimens of extinct Egyptian scarabs."
55 minutes


Vince couldn't keep up with the episode like he did when he last watched it by mistake. 

Narrator: "A quiet, balmy midnight in Gotham City. Not a creature is stirring, except these creatures - though they're barely stirring. And this creature - an Egyptian King? And a tank full of crocodiles? In our beloved borough?" 

Cue bad footage and stock footage of crocodiles. 

Tut's henchmen crack open a safe but ignore the 68 karat diamond to instead get some beads "or my name ain't Amenophis Tewfik!" RD thought he was Amadeus Toothpick. The owner, credited as "Man of Distinction", appears with an eye-patch and a gold silk robe and a gun only to be overpowered. Vince thinks he borrowed the robe from Hugh Hefner. RD has him explain Hugh Hefner. 

The MOD explains the theft to Gordon in his office while wearing a bandage wrap around his head.
Gordon: "I don't understand why you'd be hurt so bad to get hit by a lead pencil."
MOD: "It wasn't a pencil. It was a pestle!"
Then Ms. Patrick, Gordon's assistant for the day, appears with a plateful of drugs for her superior as he and O'Hara pick up the Batphone.
Oddly enough the phone is just laying there for Bruce to pick up. Dick: "Holy hieroglyphics! This might mean a battle royale!" 

This leads to one of RD's favorite scenes of the whole series. (:09) Batman in Gordon's office asks to call Yale to see what Tut is up to.
Ms. Patrick appears again with Gordon's drugs: "Something for youuuuuu, Batmannnnnn?"
Gordon: "NO! NO PILLS!"
Batman: "No thank you, my dear, I seldom resort to medication of any kind. You see, one's body has remarkable restorative powers of its own."
RD: "This is the same man who is constantly taking Batpills."
He shows Ms. Patrick staring at Batman's bulge - I mean utility belt, while Gordon looks away in disgust, much to Vince's consternation.
Gordon agrees to ask Ms. Patrick to call the university.
Batman: "Dean Gerber? This is Batman. ... Batman. ... B. A. T. M. A. N. ... That's right, in Gotham City."
Tut suffered yet another injury when falling off a podium and has since gone missing. Batman explains to O'Hara they actually stole "scarabs imprisoned in amber". He gets Ms. Patrick back to check the classifieds to check the drugstores for further leads. Instead she brings more pills.
Batman: "She seems eager to please; that's a virtue in anyone."

Sure enough Tut and henchmen, in surgical clothes for some reason (including a hole in Tut's mask for his beard), are in the Apex Apothecary trying to revive the scarabs. (:19) Tewfik: "We're givin' them the hot foot!" Tut has to clarify they're going to shock them with 100,000 volts to reanimate them. One goon, the Royal Apothecary as played by a very young Sid "Captain Spaulding" Haig, is particularly creepy and giddy about their plans.

Tut: "Breathe, my children! Free yourselves from the arms of Osiris! Shake off the shackles of the sepulcher! Live... Live... Live!"
Tewfik: "They ain't livin'."
So they go to 200,000 volts. Still nothing.
Tut: "Failure! Abject failure!"
He then has a tantrum before they actually do come back to life.
Tewfik: "How 'bout that - that cockroach is really kickin'!"

Meanwhile as the Duo are climbing up the building they are interrupted by Green Hornet and Kato watching from the window. (:25)
Green Hornet: "What are you doing here?"
Batman: "I might ask you the same question."
Green Hornet: "Pursuing the enemies of law and order, wherever they happen to be."
Batman: "Aren't you in the wrong city?"
Green Hornet: "On special assignment for "The Daily Sentinel." You know my aide, Kato."
Batman: "Robin, the Boy Wonder."
[Robin lets go of his rope to wave.]
Green Hornet: "Well, I don't want to hold you up from your crimefighting."
Batman: "Thank you. And good luck to you, Mister Hornet."
Kato: "Nice to have met you."
[The window closes.]
Robin: "Gosh, Batman, what are they dressed like that for?"
Batman: [Shrugging] "Hmmm?"

They make it inside the building.
Apothecary: "What form of curative do you require?"
Batman: "We need nothing."
Apothecary: "I don't carry a drug called "nothing.""
He then opens up a box to launch some dust at them before trying to deter them from venturing further. Batman persists, leading into a quick fight. The goons distract them with sneezing powder to cover leaving through the fire escape.
Recovering they find one scarab left behind.
Robin: "Holy Frankenstein! It's alive!"
Batman chastises him for not knowing his Egyptology for not knowing what a scarab is, for some reason. (Shouldn't that just be biology?)

Back in the Batcave, Batman continues to chastise a yawning Robin for not knowing his self-taught hieroglyphics or periodic table. The Bros wonder if he was referencing scarab limbs or lips for Tut's chemical formula that could potentially mind control the whole city. Batman remembers their last encounter with him a year ago. Robin: "How could I have forgotten?"

In his lair Tut hears one of his sphinxes was bought by Bruce, by a goon reading the news in the slowest pace possible. "Sheer spite! Just because I kidnapped him last year!" Bruce is supposed to donate it to Scotland Yard, and for a moment Tut is glad to share space with infamous British criminals before he reconsiders and orders his goons to steal it back.

At nightfall at Stately Wayne Manor, the goons hide behind bushes in the stereotypical cartoon manner. They take the sphinx (with Robin inside it) as Bruce watches from his window. 

Robin then notifies Bruce on the lair's location as the Apothecary creates the chemical while randomly praising the old gods. Tut: "And praise to me too." The Apothecary asks to get back to his shop. Tut: "Don't be a boobie." They plan to give the chemical to Gordon through Ms. Cleo Patrick.

Of course then Robin has the timing to fall out of the sphinx, so Bruce has to track him through the radioactive pellets in his Batbelt. Robin attempts an escape while the Apothecary chases with a huge syringe, only to find himself over the crocodiles. Tut: "Get him! But watch out for the scarabs.[To the crocodiles] I told you, my lovelies, if all went well, you'd soon be dining on something better than frogs and fishes! Not much better, granted, but you're due for a snack. I hope you all have healthy appetites! Eat your din-din!"
Narrator: "Is Robin doomed? Those crocodiles look mighty hungry! Was Tut right? They'd soon be having a tasty dinner? Or was he merely shedding crocodile tears? Above all, will Batman arrive before the Boy Wonder's perch slides away? Tune in your Batsets tomorrow. Same time. Same channel." 

Buono's performance reminds Vince of one of his other friends and podcast hosts, Bin Hamin, who similarly commits to the role. (I wonder if Tut was one of his influences.) RD also has more respect for him and his acting, and liked his goons in turn. Vince wonders if the originally made characters came from the guest actors themselves in order to make an impact. 

RD loved the character of Ms. Cleo Patrick alongside Pauline's. However if he had her as his pill-pushing assistant he would at least be somewhat cautious. 

RD wrote about Stampede Wrestling for the first time. They will also write about AEW for the first time. Finding video material for inductions in the original days would be a major journey for him (and his wife.)

Episode 44: Holy Kilowatts!: June 12, 2022

Barbecued Batman? (the episode has a question mark instead of a rhyme)
September 22, 1966
"As the Dynamic Duo attempts to oppose the Minstrel, the villain escalates his plans' destructive potential in retaliation in a way Batman might not be able to thwart."
51 minutes

Vince finally saw the correct episode to the relief of "RD Likes a Good BBQ!" He also finally agrees with RD that the story is a sleep inducer. 

Narrator: "This gentle Minstrel is a threat???"

Vince: "I don't think I've ever been to a Kenny Rogers' Roasters. There's never been one in the neighborhood. And they went under right? I've never had it while it existed."
RD: "You know why? Because Kenny knew when to fold them."

Narrator: "Rare? Medium? Well Done?"

As the writers continue to be lazy, the Minstrel sings the same tune from last time. (:06) However he is interrupted by explosions from the breadcrumb magnets that are actually Batbombs, in Batman's anticipation that "the Minstrel will run a fowl" since he likes rotisserie chickens. RD thinks this is more of an Egghead thing. 

The Duo somehow manage to break free and pull out the poles from their slots but in such as a way to not directly land on the grill. Cue another easily won fight. Minstrel escapes in song.The goons also escape by slowly walking up stairs less unnoticed and more like they suddenly gained 50 years.

Batman: "I'm not one to admit defeat, but I do find this Minstrel somewhat frustrating."
RD: "I do as well, completely different reasons Bat."
Robin: "We're letting them go?"
Batman: "Why bother with riff-raff? It's the Minstrel we want. The Minstrel may have taken the wind out of my sails with that murderous barbecue, but not all."

Batman then sees henchwoman Octavia which summons his love theme. She asks to be arrested but instead Batman gives her her purse. "Just looking at you, I'm sure your presence here is innocent."
Octavia: "Appearances can be deceiving, Batman."
Batman: "Appearances, perhaps. Instinct, seldom."
Octavia: "I may like it better on your side."
Batman: "It's always a satisfactory feeling knowing you're on the side of right, Octavia."
Octavia: "I wasn't talking about that."
Batman: "...I know."
He then lets her leave.
Robin: "You're letting her go? Well, I admit she's gorgeous, Batman, but what does she have that all the other gorgeous creatures didn't?"
Batman: "Well, Robin, for one thing, she has a tracking device which I just placed in her handbag." 

Having subjected himself to Raw, Vince finds "Maurice" Maryse and her cleavage pale against Octavia. (:17) He gives her 6.5 Batpoles regardless. RD gives her 6, "as average on this show as they come." Also the credits list her as "Amanda" for some reason. Also there is next to no web or acting presence of actor Leslie Perkins. 

Return to Gordon's office.
Gordon: "THE Batman found the hydrodyning oscillator founded by the Minstrel."
O'Hara (drunken angry): "Well Batman hasn't contacted us!"
Gordon: "Have you the temerity to imply that Batman is perhaps working together with the Minstrel?"
O'Hara: "I don't want to imply it, but Mother Machree, Commissioner, what do we really know about Batman and Robin? Two... two masked figures, two voices on the telephone! Whence did they come, whither do they go?"
Gordon: "Whence and whither be dashed, Chief O'Hara! Isn't it enough to know they're the saviors of Gotham City?"
O'Hara: "And helped out from time to time by the department of which I am the Chief, I should add?"
Gordon: "You may not! As a matter of fact, I have a darn good mind to -"
Before he can really get going with a damn, Batman calls.
Batman: "This Minstrel is tricky and cunning. But Robin and I won't rest until we catch him!...Can you do me a favor, Commissioner Gordon? Can you pass that information along to your stalwart co-fighter in crime Chief O'Hara?"
An ashamed O'Hara asks for forgiveness.
Gordon: "How dare you question the guardian angels of this city?!"
RD is certain Batman has bugged the office, since Gordon is in fact the true crime boss of the city. Although you probably don't need to be one of the world's greatest detectives to figure that a police commissioner talking about how someone else is doing a better job than them may not be on the level.

Octavia returns to the Minstrel's lair wondering if they should make a deal with him. (:26) Minstrel: "Make a deal? With that paragon of probity? The righteous reformer? That enemy of enterprise? That thorn in my flesh?" He wonders where her loyalty lies.
The Duo are listening in the Batcave through Batman's tracking device.
Robin: "I see what you mean when you said she was special."
Minstrel finds the bug, sending Octavia into hysterics.
Minstrel: "You rat fink! You spy! Listen to me, Batman, we go to plan High C!"
RD is reminded of when he opened Hi-C aluminum cans with a knife instead of a can opener.
Minstrel tells Batman to take the police with him to the stock exchange for his plan that may threaten the entire world, never mind one city's economic structure.

Alfred then appears telling the Duo Aunt Harriet was worried when she checked their beds the other night and didn't find them there.
Batman: "We'll be home soon. We have a little stop we gotta go make, to prevent the end of the world!"

The Batmobile arrives at the stock exchange just as a localized earthquake hits only the building. Batman: "It's not an earthquake, it's the Minstrel!"
He determines he is using the ventilation shafts to sympathetic vibrate the building through its resonance frequency. RD is sad his earthquake machine "is not John Tenta under a mask" or as sophisticated as the one used by Malcolm Merlyn on the first season of Arrow. He wonders if he can grow the same beard as Oliver Queen.

Minstrel: "Do you like the sample?"
Gordon: "He's so suave!"
Minstrel (singing): "I am the Minstrel and a mastermind; I'm a modern genius crook / In electronics I cannot be surpassed, and that's why your building shook / To my terms you must agree or vibration, consternation, decimation throughout the nation / Accept my terms or there will be irreversible calamity / You have until nightfall to prevent a frightful downfall."
He asks for payment in certified check from Gordon by 6 pm. RD wonders why they don't just shut off the power in Minstrel's warehouse until they catch him.
Robin: "Holy kilowatts!"
He suggests just paying him.
Batman: "Even at the risk of seeing this entire neighborhood collapse under your feet, would you spend the rest of your lives in the shadow living in subservience to this rascally ruthless tyrant?"
That wins the group over.

So of course long after the deadline in the middle of the night, they come with the ransom check to the warehouse and kill off the power...for half a second, causing Batman to do another wacky run. Minstrel on screen gives the police "one last chance" to surrender, which of course they do. Batman of course knows who the Minstrel is - he's the building engineer in the glasses right next to them!
Man in background: "That nice looking young man is the Minstrel!"
And he would have got away with it too if it weren't for that meddling Duo!
RD wonders if the whole city has an eyesight problem. "That nice looking young man is Vince Russo?"
O'Hara: "He was just on TV! What black magic is this?"
RD Batman has to explain to O'Hara what a recording is.

Cue fight with henchmen...and O'Hara, who immediately gets punched and took a dive, as trained well by True Crime Boss Gordon. Minstrel pulls out the sparkler, but it's not effective against the Duo's "particle Bataccelerator units that create an anti-charge and deflect the static bolts", and he's finally apprehended. 

At Stately Wayne Manor Bruce and Dick play four-level chess as the news anchor announces that "the melodic master of crime who came within a tremble of subjugating all of Gotham City is now on his way to the city jail."
Aunt Harriet: "They've arrested that charming man."
Anchor: "Tell me Mr. Minstrel Man, due to the fact that you've been defeated by the Dynamic Duo despite your electronic genius, do you have any plans in your future for crime?"
Mr. Minstrel Man: "Why yes, as a matter of fact I do! Wait 'til the jailbreak, Batman / You've not seen the last of me / I'll clobber you and Robin / Wait and see / You'll vibrate both together / I'll shake off your heads / Oh just you wait 'til the jailbreak, Batman / You'll be dead."
Anchor: "Thank you Mr. Minstrel Man."
Aunt Harriet: "Someone with a voice that lovely can't be all bad."

RD liked the threat of an earthquake machine, even if it was boringly handled. (:47) However he finds it hard to judge how bad a villain he was against Zelda the Great so he has them both at the same level. (He's not a big fan of making lists despite writing a book about them and/or being associated with a website that sometimes does them.) At least the second part picked up compared to the first. 

He also thinks the episode titles should have been switched, as well as standardizing Octavia/Amanda's name, having a better minstrel as a villain, and naming him Mr. Minstrel Man.

Unsurprisingly due to audience response, this is the one and only appearance of Mr. Minstrel Man in the series or any part of the Bat-canon. Maybe he did go legit elsewhere...after escaping prison of course.

Episode 43: Holy Russo Swerve!: June 5, 2022

52 minutes

Blade got drunk the other night and missed the episode of Raw.

Hang on, I think I got my progrems mixed up.

Vince watched the wrong episode the other night, despite being so adamantly defensive of the earlier episode the last time. Besides the new hairstyle, this does not sit well with RD: Stalwart Co-Fighter of Crime, who tables the turns on him and his hubris. 

Taking a page from Vince's colleague Eric Bischoff in changing up the scripts as WCW was going live, RD has his Co-Bro read things from their social media peanut galleries. (:05)  

  • Vince has to guess who are on the villains on RD's Batman pinball machine. He gets them all right. (Mr. Freeze, Bookworm, Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, Egghead, King Tut, Mad Hatter, and Shame)
  • :09 John "Ultimate Kennedy" Nelson wonders why Jackie "Uncle Fester" Coogan didn't appear on the show with the rest of the Adams Family. 
  • Lyle Waggoner and Peter Deyell were initially considered before West and Ward for the Dynamic Duo.
  • To Vince: "What is RD? Clue me in." He finally understood what the RD stands for. RD explains the history of the name. Vince finds it brilliant. 
  • 'Adam B' asks Vince who their favorite Catwoman is. RD remembers King Tut's Nefertiti being turned on by Batman.
  • Vince likes the word 'grit'.
  • Someone asks Vince who their favorite TV show villain is. (:17) RD has Catwoman and Gorshin's Riddler. Someone bought Vince an autographed print of Egghead. 
  • RD's favorite piece of memorabilia is a signed Bobby Heenan book due to the memory of the encounter. In WCW Terry Taylor among others kept wanting Vince to replace Heenan on air due to his being completely nonchalant about all the 'action' in ring. He refused, and it was only when he was away from the company did they replace him with Mark Madden, of which Heenan blamed him.
  • Tyler Wandrak asks RD on which wrestlers they would cast for Batman and asks Vince when the last time he had Sbarro's. RD would have Becky Lynch as Poison Ivy and Randy Orton as a sleep-inducing Minstral.
  • Brad Mayfield reminds Vince he is a huge fan of Everybody Loves Raymond due to the similar family to his own. 
  • Vince met West, Ward, and Julie Newmar. 
  • Vince loves White Castle but it's not available nearby. He goes for the Sack.
  • "What was the main formula of anti-shark repellent?"
  • Jed Shaffer asks about their favorite horror movie. (:29) RD has The Birds and Vertigo. He and Blade first met Roddy Piper at a Days of the Dead convention, and he later crashed their recording of their radio progrem. RD in turn appeared on his radio progrem.
  • Uno Vsop to Vince: "What was that lady's name that stayed with them? Aunt Something?" Vince gives him boos.
  • Steve to Vince: "How did Batman and Robin change outfits when going down those poles?" 
  • Vince hasn't watched the Obi-Wan Kenobi series yet. RD recommends it. 
  • Vince is distracted by a Bray Wyatt tweet. RD: "That's my least favorite horror movie." Vince thinks he could have been an original Batman villain. I would go for Scarecrow personally.
  • Mike Mackler: "What's Vinny Ru's craziest story from working at PC Richard & Son?" Vince once waited on Natasha Kinski there. "I sold her a washer and a dryer bro, for crying out loud!"
  • RD asks what their favorite other Batman movie would be. (:36) Vince has The Dark Knight. RD really likes Batman Returns. Vince liked Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman.
  • Vince likes Twilight for some reason.
  • Vince once met Mike Tyson. RD always had a lovely time meeting Weird Al.
  • Vince regrets missing Tiny Tim while in wrestling.
  • RD does a random impression for some reason.

Vince: "What a trainwreck this has been."
RD: "You don't say."

Vince warns RD when he gets to the wrong episode he watched (with King Tut) to watch it methodically. RD had issues with the last AEW PPV at miniseries length. "It's probably what people think about this show tonight."

RD never reads movie reviews. He always goes in blind to watch them, regardless of length. 

RD acknowledges the help of Jeff in getting him into seeing more of Channel Attitude's progrems, despite his getting his name wrong and Vince always making fun of him.
