6 Funny Mormon References in TV Shows

roses LDS Magazine har listat 6 teve shower där man skämtar om mormoner. Naturligtvis finns det ännu fler. Några kommentarer efter artikeln var dessa:

There have been many other Mormon references in TV shows and movies. One of my favorites not mentioned here was in ”Friends.” After Rachel found out she was pregnant, she was preparing for a date and was trying to determine how to explain to her date why she could not drink alcohol. She was thinking out loud, and one of the excuses she had come up with was that ”I could tell him that I am Mormon.”

Who can forget Star Trek IV when Captain Kirk attempted to cover for Spock? Kirk explained away Spock’s obvious weirdness as the result of the free speech movement and ”a little too much LDS.” For anyone who didn’t experience this classic moment and the resulting wall-to-wall laughter in the theater, the clip is available on YouTube

Ja, själv tänkte jag på South Park och Saturday Nigth Live med Tim Tebow. Det finns säkert fler… Och, ja jag hittade Star Trek Lds repliken. Förmodligen skulle det vara Lsd istället! 😛 (Obs. Sketchen är nr 56 i spellistan)

Golden Girls: Transplant

When Blanche’s sister needs a kidney transplant, she doesn’t know whether to donate her kidney or not. Luckily, she’s saved by a donor match whose kidney is spic-n-span from a life of clean living. 

Blanche: Oh, well the most wonderful thing happened. They found a donor, an excellent match. She was a retired Mormon schoolteacher.

Rose: Virginia’s so lucky!

Blanche: Oh, I’ll say! That kidney was showroom new! Why, the wildest thing that ever passed through there was Ovaltine!

”Call Me, Irresponsible”

Admiring a bouquet of flowers sent to Carla, Rebecca wonders why more men can’t send flowers. Sam mishears her, and hilarity ensues. 

Rebecca: ”Oh, why can’t more men send flowers?”

Sam: ”I didn’t know Mormons couldn’t send flowers.”

Rebecca: ”I said more men, not Mormons.”

Sam: ”I know they can’t dance.”

Norm: ”No, Sammy, that’s the — that’s the Amish.”

Sam: ”Why can’t Mormons send flowers?”

Rebecca: ”They can.”

Sam: ”What are you talking about?”

Rebecca: ”I just wish someone would send me some … roses!”

Sam: ”Why does it have to be a Mormon?”

Rebecca exits in a huff

Sam: ”Some people you just can’t discuss religion with.”

Meredith: Sure.

Emily: All day.
