Although this show is usually listed as the third installment and was shown in that order on Cinemax, it was shown second on Channel Four.

Quotes & Caps

(Max's speech in these shows uses extreme stuttering and repetition, which I will not attempt to replicate in the transcriptions here. You can assume that any stutter noted goes on many times longer.)

  • Max: "And coming up soon here on the Max-Max-Max Headroom show, the two and only Simon LeBon and Nick Rhodes. They-They've brought their mascara with them and they're going to be having one petit discussionette with little old moi. (aside) Get out the best coops, Martha..."
  • Max: "Boy, you can't trust anyone in this business. You know, on a recent show, I suggested a new game show called 'Stake Your Bedroom Furniture.' Well, I'm damned if there isn't a new game show coming out soon on the Meter(?) network called: 'Stroke the Piece of Furniture.' Hmm. All the contestant has to do is stroke one of the prizes - like a refrigerator, hi-fi system or videocassette player - in a more loving and sexy way than the hostess, and they get to keep the prize. I'm keeping my mouth shut in the future."
