So I hope I'm not the only person who is constantly confused by at least some of the references in each riff. I figure they're mostly just comments on movies or TV shows I never saw as well as past current events I've forgotten about. Sometimes I'll Google it in hopes of finding out what it means.

But one that really mystifies me is in Independence Day at the start of the climax with the counterattack. General guy says don't fire until the package has been delivered and Kevin says "Wait, break off the engagement. We've just learned the old penny in the jar thing IS true."

I can't even begin to guess what this is in reference to.

Could be this:

You might want to take a second glance at all those pennies you have lying around. According to Little Things, a few World War II era pennies still in circulation are worth around $85,000.

Basically https://www.google.com/search?q=old+penny+in+the+jar

But, yes, I think being confused by the references is an integral part of MST3K/RiffTrax experience

Another Kickstarter thing, if you backed above $15 you get another gift card for $3.99. You have to go to the Backerkit survey again but it will then apply to your account.
