Weekend Update 
The device that Dennis Miller uses to demonstrate nuclear fusion in water is actually a modified Mouse Trap board game which has been spray-painted silver. The device fails to perform on the first try, and Dennis ad-libs "Now this is a two-part process." After two more failed attempts, he ad-libs "Here comes the particle accelerator!" and manually pushes the ball to complete the process.
