All of the crew stands up. At the far end of the room, a door slides upwards, revealing Dark Helmet. He has the appearance of a midget Darth Vader, with an oversized helmet and a tie hanging over his suit. He strides into the room, the other crew members reacting with terror as he passes them.

Finally, he pushes up the mask of his helmet, revealing the nerdy face beneath. He knows everything. You went over my helmet?! More to the side! Never ever! No, no, no, no, no, please, no, no, please, no, not that.
He drops to the floor in pain, and is eventually helped away by other Spaceballs. Where is it? But we have it on the radar screen. Shall I punch it up for you?

The video monitor turns on, revealing a silver man in a black suit. This is Vinnie. What do you want? Vinnie looks to his left, and the monitor pans over to reveal a massive blob of cheese covered with pepperoni. And his sidekick, Puke! By tomorrow?! You forgot late charges.
Which brings it up to, um One million space bucks! BARF: Or else what? The monitor pans back to Vinnie. Vinnie and Pizza start laughing, while Lone Starr and Barf mock laugh along with them. Vinnie takes a lick of Pizza. Vespa appears to have Princess Leia style buns now.
