Goofs

In the beginning of the Sledgeomatic set, Gallagher sets a head of lettuce on the table to be smashed. As he raises the hammer, the shot cuts to a shot from below the table and it is Gallagher's brother Ron shown smashing the lettuce into the crowd. A few minutes later, Gallagher brings out Ron dressed in the same clothes and a wig when Gallagher tells the crowd that he can "dish it out and take it as well". See more »

Quotes

Gallagher: When the beer companies say 'know when to say when'... you don't ask a drunk to know when to say when! Why don't *you* guys say when to say when? *You're* the experts on beer! You're too drunk to drive when you can't carry a drink with you to the car.
