If the new host Jonah was trying to get on my good side, he's being very canny about it.
From "Avalanche", the fourth episode of MST3K: The Return.
NB: If you love vintage ambulances or have ever been in the wreck of one, you might want to avoid the movie after the first hour or so. One of them careens off the side of a bridge and explodes.
Had to pause and take a screenshot when I heard this line in episode 10.
Mr. Gozer is listed on the imdb as Doug Gozer. In the episode he's the head of an NFL owner's meeting. He's played by Sam McMurray, whose career includes National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Raising Arizona, and a recurring role on Friends.
And just for good trivia measure, also in this same scene is Harris Yulin, who played the Judge in GB2. He's been in several episodes of UKS last season and this season.
Casting an actor is just coincidence, but this character name of Doug Gozer is not the first intentional GB reference they've had. Check out past posts for the bit about the Tavern on the Green and the school named Winston Zeddemore.
Been watching Cheers from start to finish for the first time... snorted at this little exchange from a 1990 episode.
Season 8, Episode 22, "Loverboyd".
Lovable but dumb Woody Boyd (Zombieland's Woody Harrelson) is trying to elope with his rich girlfriend Kelly, but isn't sure which window in the mansion is hers. He comes down the ladder which Sam Malone (Ted Danson) is helping to steady...
(Since the picture link will eventually cease to work...)
W: That's not her room either.
S: Well, what took you so long up there?
W: Ghostbusters is on TV. I love that movie.
S: Oh yeah.
W: It's criminal the way it got snubbed by the Oscars that year.
S: Still ticks me off.
Then they find Kelly's correct window. When things get romantic, Woody tells Sam to beat it... Sam's exit line about GIJoe toys is also very funny.
When Woody goes to leave at the very end of the episode, he discovers the ladder is no longer there. Wonder where Sam went?
Back to the chambermaid's room, where they're on the bed fully clothed, eating her popcorn, and watching Ghostbusters.
Those are some fun Ghostbusters references right there. They sure got that right about the Oscar snubs.
(Knowing my photo links will eventually die... it's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Michael has printed out photos and said the people in them are beautiful. One is the obese twins on motorcycles, one is older Elvis Presley, the next is Stay-Puft in Columbus Circle, then Martin Lawrence as Big Mama, then a CGI Jabba the Hutt.)

It's a familiar poster of Venkman, Spengler, and Stantz exiting the Sedgewick elevator, and in silver ink below each character there are Signatures.
Jump to the 22:50 mark and you'll see it.
Arielly said there had been an earlier GB reference in Season 4 but couldn't recall what it was.
Turns out S4 is only six episodes long, so I watched them all in short order.
In E2, there's a fake TV-movie that Kimmy watches called The Tatum Browncat story. When we see the description on her screen, the graphic has pictures of castmembers Treat Williams and Annie Potts (as Tatum). Kimmy calls Annie by name as she watches, but we never see the actual show.
And then in E4, when someone suggests they 'bust the paradigm', Kimmy says "They do say busting makes you feel good."
Anyone catch any I missed in Season 4?
As you may recall, there were previous UKS references to GB like a school named after Winston Zeddemore, a minor character referred to as Mr. Gozer, and a memorable homage to Louis Tully when they visited Tavern on the Green.
Enjoy the pics while they last.
And the tangential:
I didn't recall spotting any others in the rest of the six 'The Gauntlet' episodes, but I admit I nodded off to sleep in at least one of them, so I could've missed other GB references.
