|Red vs. Blue Episode|
|"The #1 Movie in the Galaxy"|
|Airdate||August 3, 2013|
The #1 Movie in the Galaxy is a PSA made for YouTube's Geek Week.
Sarge shows the Blues a trailer he made for a Red vs. Blue movie that he plans to become a blockbuster. Although open to the idea at first, the Blues realize that the trailer's portrayal of the characters is changed to Sarge's benefits. Wash also asks how Sarge was able to get the Blue team in the trailer without their knowledge, before Simmons and Grif appear with different colored armor, revealing they acted like the Blues. Washington then states he's going to destroy the Reds camera equipment as Sarge tries to change his mind. Caboose then asks Freckles about his appearance in the ending of the trailer, at which the robot replies Sarge promised to make him a star.
Washington, Tucker, Caboose, and Freckles are standing in a small huddle, while Sarge walks up to them.
Sarge: Ahem, hey, Blues. I think it's time we all had ourselves a little talk.
Tucker: If this is the sex talk, I'd love to make a contribution to the discussion.
Sarge: This is not the sex talk.
Sarge: Me and the boys have been talking, and we think that now is the right time to make our big move!
Washington: What are you talking about?
Sarge: Gentlemen, it's high time we made ourselves a Red vs Blue movie!
Wash, Caboose, and Tucker look at each other for a moment, then turn back to Sarge.
Wash: But... we do that every year.
Sarge: No! Not some straight-to-DVD nonsense! I'm talking about a genuine summer blockbuster!
Tucker: Hey, I like the sound of that!
Wash: Okay... what did you have in mind? What's the story?
Sarge: Heh, heh, story? I said 'blockbuster', Spielberg. Story should be the last thing on our minds.
Wash: Then, what's it going to be about?
Sarge: Excellent question, unit production manager Washington! Which is why I've taken this moment to prepare an incredibly expensive, cinematic movie trailer! Lopez, get the lights.
Lopez turns off the lights.

- Simmons is briefly seen in (mostly) blue armor, a reference to his team change in Season 4.
- The phrase "Non mea culpa" is Latin for "Not my fault."
- Simmons is referred to in the end credits as "Dick Simmons 2.0" a reference to Sarge making him a cyborg in Season 2.
- The "Michael J. Caboose Pictures" opening logo for the trailer somewhat resembles a simplified Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer logo, with the notable exception of the art masks, Caboose taking the place of the lion, and the "MJC" being placed at the bottom of the ribbon, while the "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" is placed on top of the ribbon and not abbriveated.
- The scene in which Sarge and Washington are seen dueling with energy swords in the middle of molten metal is a reference to the duel between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi from the 2005 film Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
- Grif's speech to Wash regarding Sarge's "boner for murder," and "loves blood and violence" is a reference to K.I.T. B.F.F.
- Sarge makes a reference to the 2004 film National Treasure when he states, "we're gonna steal the Declaration of Independence".
- Grif's last sentence in the trailer "It's two bases in the middle of a box canyon." is a reference to a similar line Simmons says in Why Are We Here?
- The "Do you ever wonder why we're here?" gag returns in this PSA.
- "Cockbite" also makes a return in the rating message.
- This is the second PSA to have a sequel. The first being St. Patrick's Day and its sequel, Raise 'Em if Ya Got 'Em.
