Mo Rocca: If the indians didn't have it bad enough with the Trail of Tears, now they had hippies dressing up like them.

 

Michael Ian Black: (holding The Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers) I'm not really sure who they're suggesting this was. I mean, I guess the implication was Mick. I don't know. You'd have to ask David Bowie about that.

 

Brad Sherwood: [Jerry Garcia] looks like if your math teacher was on a deserted island for 20 years and then you rescued him.

 

Bil Dwyer: (on K-Tel 8-tracks) Not only did you suffer the ignominy of having an 8-track player, but you had to pay more for your choice of music.

 

Frank Vincent: (on Brian's Song) They were homosexuals, weren't they?

 

Michael Ian Black: (on The Hollywood Squares) Maybe they had writers, maybe they didn't. I choose to believe they didn't. I want to preserve the fantasy

Hal Sparks: How did [Maude] get pregnant? Wouldn't her penis get in the way?

 

Michael Ian Black: I can say "mother****er" ten times in a row, and it's, it's cute. I mean, it's adorable. But when [Richard Pryor] says it, it's just downright funny.

 

Gilbert Gottfried: (on Billy Dee Williams) Oh, girlfriend, he was fine—oh, wait, I think I was looking at the cue card for one of the black comediennes.

 

John Waters: [Paul Lynde] brought out the inner 'fag hag' gene that women have

 

Rachael Harris: [Superfly] really made me want to kill whitey.

 

Michael Ian Black: I don't know who 'the man' is. He looks an awful lot like Dick Cheney.

Bill Dwyer: Goodyear Blimp debuted in 1972 because America was clammoring for slower air travel

 

Rachael Harris: Sophia Loren—good God, what a body. She had some hot cans.

 

Hal Sparks: Nerf was the beginning of the soft, chubby, weak-minded child.

Simon Doonan: The unfortunate thing about Charlie is that women would say, "oh, can you smell my Charlie?" and it would sound like this horrible double entendre.

Mo Rocca: In 1973, being homosexual went from being deranged to being delightful.

 

Michael Colton: The central flaw of Westworld was there wouldn't be any problem if they didn't give the robots live ammunition. Who gave them bullets?

 

Michael Colton: (on Paper Moon) There's nothing cuter than a nine-year-old girl smoking cigarettes.

 

Michael Ian Black: (on celebrity bowling) When it comes to athletic endeavors, I'm not trusting a celebrity as far as I can throw them.

 

Brian Posehn: I'm not going to sleep with Steve McQueen, but, uh, I'd hug him.

 

John Aboud: Favorite ELO song? "Don't Bring Me Down"—'cause I wanted to know who Bruce was.

 

Willie Garson: There were two game shows when I was a kid that was, like, why I wanted to be famous, and one of them was definitely Password.

Hal Sparks: A lot of people had defected to the United States from Russia before Mikhail Baryshnikov, but, um, no one had done it with such pizzazz!

 

Greg Fitzsimmons: Chico and the Man—that was a TV show that did for Latinos what Sanford and Son did for black people, which is not a lot.

 

Michael Ian Black: (on the Harlem Globetrotters) Night after night the black guys are whooping the white guys' asses, and on a certain level that's satisfying.

 

Kristen Henderson: I actually thought, I was little, and I thought it was Gladys Knight and the Pimps

 

Mo Rocca: (on Earthquake) Ava Garner's father is played by Lorne Greene, which means that Lorne Greene was seven years old when he sired Ava Gardner.

 

Michael Ian Black: (on Burt Reynolds) If you could just somehow smell like him for two seconds, you'll have Cheryl Tiegs on your wiener.

 

Adam Ferrara: (on the Bedazzler) Because the seventies' fashion wasn't tacky enough—let's put rhinestones in it!

 

Michael Ian Black: (on the Pink Panther movies) I'd need to watch these movies again to make a real fair assessment of whether or not they needed to do 13 of them. I suspect not.

 

Mo Rocca: Rollerball envisions a society in the year 2018 where nations no longer exist. The world is divided into corporations that, naturally, fight each other in roller derbies.

 

Stephanie d'Abruzzo: The only words to "The Hustle" were, "Do the Hustle." Isn't that interesting?

Annabelle Gurwitch: (on "Lady Maramalade") All my girlfriends and I were like, "we speak French now!"

 

Michael Ian Black: Some people say [Jimmy Hoffa] ran afoul of the Mafia. Obviously that's not true; the Mafia doesn't exist. But he may have made some enemies in the labor movement somewhere. Or, others say—no, that's pretty much all people say: "The mob killed him."

 

Jake Fogelnest: Bruce Springsteen's "Thunder Road" is about what all Bruce Springsteen songs are about: bein' from New Jersey, you know, and livin' a tough life.

 

Loni Love: I thought, "you know, if [Joe Namath] can get his big ass in them panty hose, so can I."

 

Hal Sparks: (on Swiss Family Robinson) I did not remember that it was Helen Hunt that was the child, but she does look like someone who grew up in a tree.

 

Mo Rocca: Pamela Sue Martin put the sex back in Nancy Drew.

 

Michael Ian Black: (on pogoing) If Sid Vicious wants to take credit for inventing jumping up and down, I'm happy to give that to him.
