Or maybe when she says "fish", she means "devil". It would explain so
much!

> Unless there's only one fish.

Well, there IS only one "Fish". I'd just like to see anyone besides
Abe Vigoda play that part!

There was that one scene where the guy was _killed_ by the *grammar*.
That could bug anybody!

Tom: (as old grocery store cashier) Anyway, I will shake the paint
from your walls, honey.

Mike: I've said "Zah" in better towns than this.

Mike: You're kind of an idiot, aren't you?

See, what bothers me, now that I know about it, is that it
turns out fish make noises, and a variety of noises at that. Enough
noises that many of them aren't categorized, and for some of them
nobody except the fish knows how they *make* noise. That can't be a
good thing.

And if you're going the direction I think you are, do they even *have*
rectums?

Mr. "Fish": "WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE OF... ah pardon me. What have you
been putting in that fish-food, woman?"
Woman: "Um, mainly walnuts, I guess"
Mr. "Fish": "Of course. Well, where was I? Oh yes, about to claim
your boyfriend's immortal soul...."

Touch of Satan is one of two MST3K's I have not yet seen in its
entirety. I've never seen Gorgo (with Leonard Maltin guest-starring).

I'm sorry to hear that! I don't remember much of Gorgo, but ToS is
one of my favorites. Funny stuff all the way through! It's on DVD
set #5, along with Time Chasers, Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders,
and Boggy Creek II: And the Legend Continues. It's hard to find a
better comedy bargain, IMHO!
