Bit: Monster Body Parts
Episode: 424- Manos: The Hands of Fate
Joel: Real lame monster in this movie today, huh?
Crow: Yeah! Wow.
Typical. What monster?
know...Torgo! Real lame monster?
Crow: Torgo's a
monster? What do you think, Tom?
Tom: Well, um,
think that, uh, sure, yeah. Seems to me that, yeah. Uh,
exaggerated physical attribute, in this case the *knees*,
used to induce, um, terror. Yeah, I guess he's a monster,
Crow: Oh, now I
*really* hate this movie! How long did that decision take
the director, a tenth of a second?
(as director): "Big
knees? Good! Let's go with it!"
you're right, I mean there's got to be a ton of other
exaggerated "physical attributes" that would be a whole lot
scarier. Like, if I wanted to scare people, (holds out

Joel: I'd have
one, really big flared nostril, and inside would be lots of
red matted hair.
Crow: I'd have an
ear that would cover me like a shroud, and a thumb the size

Crow: ...but not
on my hand.
Many sizes, many shapes. Some on my back!
Crow: A tongue
the size of a sleeping bag, and my fingers would fold the

Joel: On my face,

Joel: Nope, not
even holes. Think how disturbing that would be, ahh!
intenstines on top of my head, where I'd have to keep them
Crow: I'd remove
my skin, restitch it, and wear it as a cardigan.
Tom: Ahem, I
would have a dewlap! (Shudders and shakes his head back and
forth, half-gobbling like a turkey. Everyone is really
Crow: Monster. I
just don't see how you can call Torgo a monster.
Joel: But he is!
He-e *is* a monster!
Crow: No he
Joel: He's a
monster. (Starts tapping Crow on the shoulder.) He is a
mon-ster, and that is why his...
haha, cut it out, hehe, cut it out, hehehe... (Movie
Joel: Ah, no, we
got movie sign!
(Crow laughs through the beginning of the door sequence and
into the theater.)
