I know Derek has his moments, such as the cucumber scene, the malfunctioning pod, and “Hello, Cleveland!”, but I still think he’s underappreciated. He delivers the title line so guilelessly, then his eyes widen in wonder. He’s genuinely impressed by the album cover. What’s also funny is that the only reason it’s reflective is because of the shrink wrap. So really, they’re just impressed by plastic. The actual album cover is likely matte, setting he and Nigel up for disappointment.
He shines again on the DVD menu as well:
“If you’ve seen it, why would you want to select it?”
David: “…your choices aren’t unlimited.”
Nigel: “You can’t get another film’s scene selection from this.”
Derek: “Not unless you, uh, turn on the t.v….”
(WHAT???? Ha ha, a wonderful mix of the boneheaded and the absurd.)
