Bit: Servo Becomes an Observer
Episode: 806- The Undead
Crow: Ah, I wouldn't feel too bad about Tom being way
smarter than us, Mike. Just means that were dumb! (In a dumb
that's it! (In a dumb voice) We're dumb.
hurriedly): Mike, Crow.
Crow and Mike: Duhhhhhh? (Red light flashes)
Gypsy: And now
someone's calling from the planet of the smart guys.
Mike and Crow: Duhhh?
Gypsy: Well, rock
my soul in the bosom of Abraham, I think it's Servo! Tom, is
(Servo is dressed as an observer and
holding an olive as his brain)
Tom: Heh, heh, hi
guys. Turns out I did so darn well on that test, they've
invited me to join their little club down here. Anyway, I'm
no longer Servo. I'm now simply Observer, but you can call
Mike: Duhhh...(In a regular voice) Hey, is this
(Observer 3 is in the back, standing by
the brain enrichment chamber)
Tom: Mike, no
offense, but that's exactly the kind of question I'd expect
from a limited brain guy like yourself. Anyway, I'll just
play it by ear. It's a pretty soft gig. Stand around,
observe, eat, but the brainy guys got their heads up their
behinds if you know what I'm saying. (Observers 1 and 2
enter, surprising Servo) Oh, hi, how are you doing, guys.
Mike, guys, you remember Observer, Observer, and of course,
Observer back there. He's got his brain in the enrichment
chamber, the poor dope.
Observer 1: Has your day observing been fulfilling?
Tom: Oh, yeah,
man. I've observed the crap out of this one thing. I gotta
tell you, whoo.
Observer 2: You have not filed your Observer report.
report, I guess I didn't know about that.
Observer 1: You are possessed of all knowledge, are you
Tom: Yeah sure.
Just shoot me the form and I'll get you your report. Just
been too darn busy observing.
Observer 2: There is no form. (Pearl is in the back, looking
Tom: Oh, uh, of
course, just because of pure mental energy...oh, look,
there's Pearl Forrester.
Observer 2: Well, why don't you read her mind
Tom: Oh, oh, me,
yeah. Ok, she's thinking, "I couldn't read a mind if it was
written on a cereal box, I'm a complete fraud, and these
guys are on to me and" oh, guess I've been reading my own
mind. That can't be too hard, can it.
Pearl: There's no
Observer 1: That's odd, I created some spoons with my mind
just last week.
Tom: I gotta get
going (Spoons come out of his sleeve) What, look at that,
what do you know about that. Spoons. You see, I travel a lot
with a lot of spoons, just in case and I guess I brought too
many spoons this time. Didn't really need all those spoons.
That's the last of them now. No there's a couple more.
There's another. Lots and lots of spoons. You know, It's
amazing. It's the same pattern you use too. Diddle Head I
think it's called. Or maybe Pottery Barn? Oh, I know what
let's do. Why don't we use my spoons until we find your
Observer 2 (Suddenly):
Crow: Ah, geez.
Mike: So, what's
Crow: Oh, Servo
stole a some spoons and they're probably going to kill
Mike: Oh, right
Gypsy: Hey, Tom,
can you get some knives?
(Observers 1 and 2 pursue Servo)
Tom: Leave me
alone you big dumb alien. Get outta here. (After a while)
Mike, Crow, Gypsy, can't you help me?
Mike (In a dumb voice): Duhhh, I don't
know, I'm too dumb. (Everybody acts dumb)
Tom: Oh, wait, wait, you got the wrong guy. I was
framed, framed I tell you.
Pearl (taking the
olive out of his cup): This isn't his
brain, it's an olive!
Observer 1: You've fooled us! We will send you back to your
Tom: Yeah, well,
that's fine with me pal. Can you read my mind now? Huh? You
like that one? Huh? Observe this! How about that? Huh? That
Observer 1: Oh, no, we'll be right back, anything but that.
