Sir, we are approaching the planet.
Very good. We're beaming down. It could be dangerous - we may be killed - but that's why we're out here. The landing party will consist of myself, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy and Ensign Skippy.
During the credits is a series of additional scenes, including: Congressman, Newt Gingrich doing a press conference, and Larry walks up to him and lifts up the politicians wig and reveals a mini-bar. He helps himself to a drink and walks back to the podium and asks "Do you have anything besides schlitz?" A scene of Larry (continuing the joke of him never farting until he was 30) hiding behind a couch when he passes gas. Then he farts again, not knowing what it was he fires a machine gun wildly at nothing. A live-action scene with creator/host Seth MacFarlane notices his Chinese butler, Wang, is still in the house. So Seth says to him "Wang, go home for Christ's sake." See more
