    Like Pee Wee, Fred also gets excited in porn movie houses.

    I love that the byline is "Breaking News Desk."

    "pulled a 'Pee-Wee'" in the headline is no accident.

    One of my fave scenes in Spinal Tap:


    JEANINE: Lieutenant Hookstrat....
    HOOKSTRATTEN: Ahh...Hookstratten..and you are Spinal Tarp?
    JEANINE: I’m Jeanine Pettibone, and this is Spinal TAP.
    HOOKSTRATTEN: Spinal TAP, my mistake, I’m Lieutenant Bob Hookstratten. Welcome to the Lindberg Air Force base. This is
    your gentlemen’s first visit to a military facility?
    DEREK: Yeah...
    HOOKSTRATTEN: Fine, may I start by saying how thrilled we are to have you here, we are such fans of your music, and all of
    your records.
    DEREK: That’s great
    HOOKSTRATTEN: I am not speaking of yours personally, but the whole genre of the rock and roll...
    DAVID: I can understand that.
    DEREK: It’s a great genre.
    HOOKSTRATTEN: ...of the exciting things that are happening in the music today. Let me explain a bit of what’s going on. This is
    our monthly “at-ease weekend”, gives us the chance to kind of let down our hair, although I see you all have
    a head start. These haircuts wouldn’t pass military muster, believe me. Although I shouldn’t talk I, my hair’s
    getting a little shaggy too, better not get too close to you, they’ll think I’m part of the band, I am joking, of
    course. Shall we go in and I’ll show you around. Walk this way, please, right through here. Did you ever run
    into a musical group works out of Kansas City call themselves “Four Jacks and a Jill”? They’ve been at a
    Ramada Inn there for about 18 months. If you’re ever in Kansas City and want to hear some good music, you
    might want to drop by. I would like to get the playing on about 1900 hours, if that is satisfactory?
    DEREK: When will that be?
    HOOKSTRATTEN: I make it now it is about 1830 hours.
    DEREK: So that’s what? about 50 hours?
    DAVID: 120 hours?
    HOOKSTRATTEN: That’s actually about 30 minutes, about a half hour, give or take just a few minutes. I don’t want to rush you.
    The idea is that we get it on and we get it over with and I have just one request, would you play a couple of
    slow numbers so I can dance?

    Bitten H.'s Yelp review of the theater in question is awesome.

    I live a few blocks away from this place. My buddy and I used to drive past it every time we went out to our usual bar and the general seediness and mystery inspired a thousand jokes. One day, right before he was moving away, we got the idea to walk in and see what was behind the stained red curtain. I chickened out at the last minute, on account of "not wanting to get stabbed" but he went in. He walked in, turned on his heels and walked right back out.

    Fred Willard went on one of those obedience places once...it was going well until they spilled hot candle wax on his private parts.
