MythBusters/2003 season

Ice Bullet, Exploding Toilet, Who Gets Wetter?[edit]

Exploding Toilet[edit]

Adam: [holding up a can of hairspray] MythBusters hairspray: it's what I use to keep my 'do in line. [smiles at the camera]

Cell Phone Destruction, Silicone Breasts, CD-ROM Shattering[edit]

Cell Phone Destruction[edit]


Adam: We made something blow up! (claps his hands and laughs like an idiot)

Jamie: (to Adam) You're a nice guy and all, but sometimes you can be a bull in a china shop.
Adam: I'm not gonna respond to that. (Incidentally, the expression "bull in a china shop" was busted in a later episode)

[One of the MythBusters' experiments has just burst into flames with Adam nearby.]
Adam: [feels his face] I'm fine, I'm fine. I'm fine. [starts to laugh] Am I missing... an eyebrow? I am missing an eyebrow, aren't I?
Jamie: Yeah, you lost a lot of hair out there:
Adam: [suddenly serious] You're f***ing kidding me!

Adam: So did you ever have customers come in and say "Could you sell me something different, this causes too much static shock when I wear it?"
Lingerie Store Owner: No, but they've said "This causes too much shock!".

Adam: You think we can build some panty friction in the bed here?
Jamie: Well, that's what it's for, isn't it?

Jamie: Jamie wants big boom.

Adam: Is gasoline flammable? You'll find out after this!

[The MythBusters, despite repeated attempts to ignite gas fumes inside their large test box, are unable to do so.]
Adam: [exasperated] Ah...how hard can it be to blow up a room full of gasoline??

CD-ROM Shattering[edit]

[After a lengthy session of shattering CDs, Adam and Jamie examine the shards embedded in a ballistic gelatin torso placed near the test rig.]
Jamie: Any day we create that much shrapnel is a good day.

Barrel of Bricks, Peeing on the Third Rail, Eel Skin Wallet[edit]

Barrel of Bricks[edit]

Adam: God-damn barrel! It didn't do squat! [Adam examines the barrel] What is this? [Pause] This barrel is too damn strong!

[After Buster is broken in the course of the test]
Adam: We broke a crash test dummy, man! I think that's a red letter day! [Holds up Buster's arm in triumph] Yeah!!!

Peeing on the Third Rail[edit]

[Adam works on a skeleton to use for a test dummy.]
Adam: I'll always miss my old skeleton. It's too bad. He got his head blown off…with a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle.

Adam: It just goes to show, do not grab the third rail with both hands and piss on it from 3 inches away! [kneels down on the rail, mimicking a drunk person] Oh man, wait a second, I gotta take a wee. Woo! That'll never make it on the show. [Which is ironic because it did make it on the show.]

[The test dummy's legs (which Adam was supposed to glue, but he used tape instead) start leaking gel.]
Adam: It's leaking from…everywhere.
Jamie: We didn't glue that at all, huh?
Adam: No, I didn't.

Adam: Total crapola. This is a complete and utter disaster.

[Adam starts fooling around with the cellophane tape.]
Jamie: Oh, stop playing and let's do this.
Adam: [about the cellophane] That's such a good sound!

Penny Drop, Deadly Microwaves, Radio Tooth Fillings[edit]

Deadly Microwaves[edit]

Adam: I wouldn't say Jamie's an evil genius…I'm not sure he's evil, and I'm not sure he's a genius.

Jamie: This is right up there with one of the weirder things that we've had to do; trying to put a dead chicken in a tanning booth? Umm, hello?!?

(Concerning the results of Jamie's "super-microwave", which has apparently done exactly the opposite of what it was intended to do)
Adam: You've made a refrigerator!

Penny Drop[edit]

Jamie: I've always enjoyed seeing Adam in pain.

[The MythBusters' modified nail gun fires prematurely, breaking a fluorescent light.]
Jamie: Uhh...whoops! [giggles] We should get outta here, that's mercury vapor there.

Adam: Go ahead, shoot me in the ass. C'mon, I can take it!

Hammer Bridge Drop, Buried Alive, Cola[edit]

Buried Alive[edit]

[Adam describes what will happen to Jamie, who will be buried alive inside a coffin.]
Adam: So, the next step is to load this up on our forklift, lower it down into our makeshift above-ground grave, fill it with earth, and monitor Jamie until he…begs for mercy.

[Jamie is about to be buried]
Jamie: Farewell, cruel world!
Adam: [laughs] Bye-bye, Heinieman.

Cola Myths[edit]

[Jamie is polishing a chrome car bumper with cola and aluminum foil]
Jamie: I'm not sure exactly what the aluminum foil does with this.
Adam: [in his "super geek" voice] Well, I think it, uh, ionizes the cola particles and, uh, brings the rust to the surface!

Jamie: That's aluminum foil.
Adam: What did I say?
Jamie: You said tinfoil.
Adam: Whatever; keep scrubbing, Cinderella!
Adam: Cola's goin' down!

Lightning Strikes, Tongue Piercing, Tree Cannon, Beat the Breath Test[edit]

Lightning Strikes Tongue Piercing[edit]

[After Adam goes through troubles making the first vacuform mold of a head.]
Adam: All right. Let's go do another nine.

[During the course of the experiment, Adam placed a particularly large "piercing" into a ballistics gel head. Back at the table, later:]
Adam: We did get a strike right to the doorknob, but, c'mon, who wears a doorknob?

Tree Cannon[edit]

Jamie: I'm making a cannonball out of granite…or a mess.

Adam: Remember, children, MythBusters has hired a licensed pyrotechnician to help us blow stuff up. You should never try anything like this unless you have your own television show.

Adam: (Adam is using a chainsaw) I'm not doing anything that the Pakish wouldn't have done if they had had a chainsaw.

Beat the Breath Test[edit]

(Both Jamie and Adam have blown under 0.08 (the California blood-alcohol limit))

Jamie: Adam, the police officer said you need to drink more.
Adam: You know, my doctor was also telling me that I'm not getting enough tar...so I need to start smoking again!

Adam: I'm lit. It's like one in the afternoon, and I'm lit.

Adam: So we've had 13 drinks over 3 hours. I know I'm drunk, but I can't even remotely tell that you're drunk. It's kind of annoying. I wanna see you put a lampshade on your head or something.
Jamie: [giggles] Sorry, bub!

Adam: Your best bet is to probably hold your nose, literally, and just take a big bite outta this onion.

Police Officer: [to Adam] He's doing fine. You just sit over there and be quiet. It's rough enough to have one of you here. But having two...
Adam: [laughing] Of course I'm causing trouble.

Stinky Car, Raccoon Rocket[edit]

Raccoon Rocket[edit]

Adam: But there's always two parts to a MythBusters story: there's replicating the myth, and then there's duplicating the result.

Escape From Alcatraz, Duck Quack, Stud Finder[edit]

Escape From Alcatraz[edit]

Adam: (about escaping from Alcatraz) THIS is SO COOL!!!!

Adam: (pounding Alcatraz escape raft loudly) Wait, was that a guard? (Pause) No! (continues to pound raft)

Duck Quack[edit]

[Adam and Jamie are checking out ducklings.]
Jamie: Adam, don't let their looks deceive you; these are actually quite deadly.

Roger Schwenke: We need to attach [a tie-clip microphone] to the duck.
Jamie: Duck tape.

[Jamie is trying to get a duck to quack.]
Jamie: Don't mess with me, duck.

Jamie: [to Bob the duck] Don't give me any beak.

[Jamie is trying to silently make a duck quack]:
Adam: It's like he's trying to collect a loan from the duck. Duck loan collection agency! [in stereotypical mobster voice] I wanna talk to you about some outstanding feed.

Jamie: Quack, damn you!

[Having busted the myth, Adam and Jamie are about to release the ducks into the bay. One of the ducks quacks loudly.]
Adam: Where were all those quacks when we needed them?
