What are your favorite alternative pronunciations, odd phrases, and true flubs from riffed films?

“THE MAP ISRAEL!” always comes to mind from Final Sacrifice. “Is that stud coming?” is another that makes me laugh every time, partly thanks to the awkward edit right after.

This is more of a misheard line. It occurred in the Star Baby host segment in Laserblast, where Mike stated that one of them had the ship. Let’s just say that the diaper changing aspect helped cement my misunderstanding.

“Pamalino” horses, from Here Comes the Circus comes to mind, and I’m still amused every time the cast pronounces karaoke “kuh-RO-kee.”

One I can’t believe they didn’t correct in post was a line where Joel was supposed to mention a UPS guy, but he misread it (maybe the script was all caps?) and he said “the ups guy” instead.

And let’s face it, the way they used to constantly mispronounce karaoke was kinda charming.

We call him the ups man too. I think that’s just a thing people do.

In the “To Earth” host segment from Diabolik, when Gypsy said that Crow had wedged himself under the desk, at first I thought she said that he had wet himself under the desk.
