Memorable line: "Hey the line was long yesterday too! Did you see that line? But not like two days ago. This line is so long. Did you see Wednesday's line?"
2) Who Didn't Flush?

used by these amateur sleuths.
Memorable lines: "poke it with a stick!"
3) Waxing The Stars?
Pitch: Sure you've seen them slide across the stage when they dance and strut, but how do they stay so smooth and hairless when those high kicks have to count? Ludmilla and Hanz are just two of the Brazilian waxing experts who discuss their defoliation techniques using wax, gaffers tape, tweezers and sometimescrazy glue on popsicle sticks.
Memorable lines: ...."sometimes the forest is thicker downstairs than upstairs, don't get me started...!"
4) Put More Stuff In Your Pants
Imagine biggest loser inside out and backwards! Normal people stuff as many of the things they collect in their lives directly into their pants and then have to proceed through their day as if nothing were wrong. Wait until you see the dance teacher and the swim instructor!
Memorable lines: "I think I sat on my cat!"

6) Fat vs. Still Fat
Network: Shopping Network.
Pitch: New fat people meet fat people from last year who are still just as fat.

Memorable lines: "Have you seen Daniel? Oh, I'm sitting on him."
7) Can You Suck It Through A Straw?

9) Ship That Box
Watch in delight as we follow a box that's shipped from Oklahoma to Oregon in real time. Shot in real conditions, where often there is no light and little sound; filmmakers spare no expense or hardship as they stay with the box at all times, at all altitudes and all temperatures, night and day, in trucks, planes and trains.
Memorable lines: There is no dialogue.
