(Moltar in the control room, with Mike Judge on the monitor)
Moltar (M): Okay, recording, and... now!
Mike Judge (MJ): (in Butthead voice) Space Ghost isn't home right now, (laughs). (changes to Beavis voice) (laughs) Is there something I can help you with? (laughs some more) (normal voice) Okay, there you go.

(Opening theme & titles)
Space Ghost (SG): (invisos in) Greetings, all. Space Ghost is my name, and animated comedy-style interview programs based in outer space are my game. Joining me tonight are craven fat kidneyed flirt gill Harland Williams, and unmuscled sheep biting mold warp Mike Judge.
Z: Have you seen my tail?
SG: Your what?
Z: My tail. Some joker cut it off!
SG: You don't have a tail!
Z: I know, because some joker cut it off!
SG: Calm down, Zorak.
Z: You calm down! Did you eat it?
SG: Why would I eat your stupid tail, I didn't even know ya had one!
Z: Moltar?
M: I didn't eat it. I don't even like tail.
Z: Oh, wait, here it is. (pause) It's not a tail after all...
SG: Play me to the desk.
Z: It's a wacky fun slippery slide!
(MoA music plays Space Ghost to the desk. Space Ghost invisos to his desk; Moltar and Zorak whoop it up in the background)
M: Whoa, whoa!
Z: Wooo hoo hoo!
M: Hey, check this out! (slides by)
SG: All right, put the wacky fun slippery slide away.
Z: Whee-eeeeee! (slides by)
M: (crash!) My knee!
SG: Please welcome my first guest, citizen Harland Williams
Harland Williams (HW): (monitor lowers from ceiling) (yodels)
SG: Greetings, Harland!
HW: Hello there... Billy.
SG: My name is not...
M: Wheeeeeeeee! (slides by)
SG: ... Billy.
HW: Oh. (winks)
SG: It's Space Ghost.
HW: 'kay, Billy. Gotcha. (winks again)
SG: Hey, hey, don't call me Billy.I do not care for the name Billy.
HW: Space Ghost, you... you're a little, uh, rambunctious today.
SG: How would you like it if I pulled down your pants and spanked your bare bottom right here in front of Zorak, Moltar and everybody!
HW: I'll say one word about y- that: naughty.
SG: Naughty?
HW: Naughty. (points) Naughty Space Ghost.
SG: What do you mean?
HW: There's naughty stuff goin' on in your head, you probably have, like, daydreams about pomegranates, and ...
SG: (hears "pomegranates" with echo effect)
HW: Sea fleece.
SG: (hears "sea fleece" with same echo effect)
HW: Timber.
SG: (hears "chocolate chip cookie dough" with same echo effect)
HW: You like wood, don't you?
SG: Well, sure I do. Who doesn't like wood? Cedar, mahogany, rustic pine. Yes, wood is good food. (smile sparkles)
HW: Naughty-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y (image & sound get stuck in a loop; continues in the background)
SG: (laughs) (pause) What's the matter?
Z: That's some wacky stuff.
SG: Moltar!
M: Alright. Uhhhh... hang on. (Harland keeps looping) Uh, is this on the same tape, or...
SG: Stop! (blasts Harland with his destructo ray)
HW: (stops looping) God bless you, O black capped whitey legs. D'you have varicose veins?
SG: No, I don't.
HW: Y'got big puffy veins, (makes pulsing sounds and motions with his hands) pulsing away like organ grinder monkeys on cheese twists.
Z: Yeah, he's got legs like his greasy grannie! (evil laugh)
SG: That extra grease tacked two years onto her life, thank you very much.
HW: You ever, uh, rubbed a bar of soap on your grandmother's forehead?
SG: I... don't think I'll have occasion to, being that she's no longer with us.
Z: Why, what would happen?
HW: Well, you'd have yourself one heck of a sparkling clean grand-mamá.
SG: Maybe you didn't hear me. My grandmother bought a farm!
Z: Really?
M: Cattle or crops?
SG: She's dead, all right?! I don't want to talk about it!
Z: Oops. Back to the veins.
HW: Tell me about your veins. See, I'm turnin' the questioning around, now tell us about your big, greasy space veins... white legs!
SG: Harland Williams, I will not hold court to your mischief!
M: Space Ghost! The completion backward principle!
SG: Uh, completion backwards principle?
HW: Tell us about the veins! (slurps)
M: Remember? Zorak creates a diversion, while you circumnavigate Ghost Planet at the speed of light...
HW: That's right, Space Ghost.
Z: Causing the planet to reverse its rotation.
M: Which in turn opens a multidimensional chasm. (monitor shows Space Ghost with three screens completely full of text flashing over him, reading, in part:)

SG: Thusly causing time to go backwards so that I can redo and/or cancel the interview before the secret of my hideous and spidery varicose veins becomes common knowledge to the general public!
HW: You see now, Space Ghost?
SG: Yes! Why didn't I think of it before?
M: You did! You called it the completion backwards principle!
HW: All hail Space Ghost! And his giant pulsing veiny legs!
SG: Zorak! Create a diversion!
Z: Hey, everybody! Look at me! Do doodley do do, do do da do do...
SG: (flies off)
HW: Wh-, where is he?
Z: (laughs) Ever see Superman 1?
HW: Yes.
Z: He'll be back in a sec.
HW: (laughs)
Z: (laughs)
M: (laughs)
SG: (flies back to desk)
Z: He's back!
SG: (out of breath) Greetings! (pants) I (pants) am (pants) Space Ghost.
HW: What, you wake up with a Winnie the Pooh video in your shorts?
M: Idiot! You went the wrong direction! (screen shows text:)

SG: Are you sure?
M: We've been on for three hours now!
Z: Yeah! I want time and a half!
SG: Ohhhhh... (falls down onto floor, everybody laughs) I think I pulled too many G's.
HW: That a boy, Jerry.
M: Jerry! (laughs)
HW: (waves)
INTERRUPT TRANSMISSION
RESUME TRANSMISSION
MJ: (on Moltar's monitor, in Hank Hill voice) Oh, I tell ya what, that Space Ghost has a nice little patootie on him, don't he? (monitor shows text:)
BED[obscured by M's hand]BROOMSTICKS
M: No!! (throws lever, sends Mike to studio monitor) You make me sick!
(Monitor screen flips through several test patterns, a picture of Adrienne Barbeau from "Jacksonville", and finally shows Mike Judge)
MJ: (in Butthead voice) That was cool! (laughs)
SG: Identify yourself to the universe.
MJ: I am Mike Judge. I am the creator of B-
SG: I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. I know what you do.
MJ: Oh. (laughs)
SG: Maybe I can help you with your little cartoon deal.
MJ: Uh, yeah, I, I would like to know what I can do to make what I do funnier.
SG: You should make your show like "Die Hard". Only put it on a bus! And then you should make the guys talk funny and hit each other in the head. And have explosions!
MJ: I, I'm gonna write that down.
SG: And you should give all the guys in the thing a destructo ray and a freeze ray. And you should make them talk funny and hit each other.
Z: (in background) In the head.
SG: Yeah! In the head!
MJ: Yeah, yeah, destructo ray, freeze ray, that could probably, like, that could put us over the top.
SG: Then I would come in and save the day! (hums superhero-type theme music)
MJ: Well, um, you know how to get a hold of me.
SG: Oh, wait, I just remembered! Draw everyone with large muscular lantern-like jaws. Like mine! (jaw sparkles)
MJ: Think if I'd drawn Butthead and Beavis with stronger jaws, and, uh...
SG: White booties!
MJ: Yeah, white boots, they, they might be funnier and they might score.
SG: Well, you know what they say, Mike, dames are like mustard. They taste great on a sandwich. But when you're not eating a sandwich, they just sit there in your refrigerator... on a shelf... in a jar... labeled... mustard.
MJ: Oh yeah.
SG: Okay then. Citizen Mike, give me an infectious laugh that millions will aspire to imitate.
MJ: Well, you know, I actually found a tape of myself trying out different laughs. There was like (does Butthead laugh) and there was like (does monkey-like laugh) and, uh, you know, then, of course (does Beavis laugh). And, uh, if you wanted to have the (does monkey-like laugh) you could probably have that one.
SG: (Does monkey-like laugh) Will this (does monkey-like laugh) give me the approval of the much sought after 18 to 34 year old demographic?
MJ: No, not really. (laughs) But it's free, though.
SG: Then I'll take it! Citizen Mike, what are your favorite programs?
MJ: I really like this, I like Space Ghost, man.
SG: Thank you!
MJ: I like, uh, Space Ghost... And, uh...
SG: Space Ghost?
MJ: Uh, Space Ghost.
SG: Thank you once again! How can I repay you for your undying devotion?
MJ: You could go into the cartoon "Rug Rats", and just sorta clean house.
SG: Yyyou want me to whack the Rug Rats?
MJ: I'll give you a list of some people in the industry that need to be, uh, that need to have this done to 'em.
(Blasts Zorak with his own destructo ray)
Z: Aaaaaa!!!
MJ: Sorry.
Z: Don't be.
SG: That was quite a display of superior firepower.
MJ: Can you put a sound effect into this... (blasts Zorak again)
Z: Noooo!!!
MJ: ... to make us equal?
SG: Sure thing...
Z: Wait a minute...
SG: Moltar?
M: (throws lever)
MJ: (in superhero/Hank Hill voice) What special powers do you have to help fight the insanity? (blasts Zorak again)
Z: No, wait... Aaaaaaa!
SG: No, listen: What special powers do you have to help stop the insanity? (blasts Zorak)
Z: Nooooooo!!
MJ: You're right, let me try that again.
Z: Hold it, gimme just a sec.
MJ: (Blasts Zorak again) What special powers do you have to help stop the insanity?
Z: All right, stop it!!! It hurts, okay?!
SG: Hmmm, I dunno.
MJ: Well, let's hear you do Butthead.
SG: (completely straight voice) Ha ha ha, ha, ha ha. My name is Butthead, my head is a giant human butt. Ha, ha ha.
MJ: And how about Beavis?
SG: (also in straight voice) Shut up, Butt land, my name is Beavis. How was that?
Z: (in background) Fab-oh!
MJ: Yyyeah, yeah, that was... well, that was great.
SG: Oh, I'm good, baby.
MJ: I'd like to hear Zorak do Beavis.
Z: I'd like to hear Mike Judge shut up!
MJ: (looks shocked)
SG: Ooooh, did you hear that, Mike.
MJ: Well, tell him I'd like to tie the long hair on his head to the short hair on his nose and kick him down the street, okay?
Z: Bring it on, you son of a carpenter.
SG: Knock it off, guys. Come on.
MJ: (In Skeletor, from He-Man, voice) The power scepter is mine now, Beast Man!
Z: That's my tail!
MJ: You betcha.
Z: Gimme back my tail!
M: Wheeeeee! (slides by)
MJ: (in Beavis' Cornholio voice) Are you threatening me?
Z: You've got my tail!
SG: All right, everybody. Just stop!
MJ: (stares back)
Z: (stares back)
M: (slides by) Wo wo wo wo...
SG: Thanks for stopping by, Mike.
MJ: (in Hank Hill voice) Boy, I tell ya what, it don't get any better'n this.
SG: Nope! It sure doesn't.
MJ: (in Beavis voice) (laughs) Boy! (laughs) It doesn't get any better than this! (laughs) Yeah!
SG: You hit the nose on the head, compadre! It just doesn't get any better than this!
MJ: (in Butthead voice) Uh, it doesn't get any better than this? (laughs)
SG: No, it doesn't. And there you have it, folks.
MJ: (in Buzzcut voice) Boy, it doesn't get any better than this!
SG: Mike...
MJ: (in Mr. Van Driesen voice) You know, it really doesn't get any better than this, mm-kay?
SG: Mmm-kay! Thanks for being on the...
MJ: (in Principal McVickers voice) (wheezes) It doesn't get any better than this. (wheezes)
SG: Mike... Mike!!
MJ: (in Butthead voice) Uh... (in normal voice) What's that?
SG: I have to go home now.
(Credits roll)
MJ: Here's Tom Anderson: "Boy, I tell ya what." Here's Hank Hill: "Boy, I tell ya what." It's a big difference.
