Saturday Night Live (1975) (TV Series)
In the scene in which Jinx asks the NASA computer about launch possibilities (the second scene involving Jinx and the computer), as the computer monitor rapidly flashes data on the screen, a couple of hidden messages are included, but only for one or two frames each. On the display of the shuttle's main engine, the caption reads "Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) burns liquid hydrogen & liquid oxygen fuel (as if anyone didn't know that, I must say...)" The next frame features a message saying "Don't get down on the DSK thrust factor, man". And the following frame displays a message saying "Three SSME's are on the orbiter's aft end, which is driving (@27,000 Knm) me quite mental". (The messages are references to Martin Short's character "Ed Grimley", who was popular on "Saturday Night Live" (1975) at the time the film was being produced.)
