Whenever I try to encapsulate in my brain the genius of MST3k, I think of a moment in this episode. Best Brains were known for cramming multiple jokes into one line, but the kinds of jokes they put together were unique.

Tom Servo takes one look at the "monster" and quips, "It looks like Ric Ocasek in a Union Suit". If you had to draw a Venn diagram of people at the time that knew who Ric Ocasek was and knew what a Union suit was, the overlap would be on the small side. But they smashed those two references together to hit a wide number of people. And for those who lived in that overlap, it was a wonderfully sublime moment.
