THEME:   last word of a phrase is "phone-y"   :-[
Where the ends of {theme words} can be found   MOBILE PHONE   
Test in a small room, maybe   TRY ON   
Collar target   FLEA [not a perp]   
Honda, even in reverse   CIVIC [palindrome]   
Ewe's guys   RAMS [y'gotta hear it]   
Fridge juice: Abbr.   ELEC [actually we don't need "Abbr." since we have "Fridge," but we could use a question mark]   
Girl o' my heart   PEG [the song is "Peg o'My Heart" --- a Forties song sung by Buddy Clark (among others) and an interesting contrast to "Kool Moe Dee genre"]   
"Oh, I give up!"   FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE [another Forties term, this time contrasted with the modern OMG and TMI]    
There seemed to be more than the usual "switching the parts of speech" ploy.  For example:  Guard = SENTRY, not the verb which comes to mind first; Platoon reporter = EMBED, not often used as a noun.  Even "Test in a small room" for TRY ON is tricky that way.   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
