Could be because $0 has a value and $1 is nil.

irb(main):001:0> $0
=> "irb"
irb(main):002:0> $1
=> nil
irb(main):003:0> :$0
=> :$0
irb(main):004:0> :$1
SyntaxError: compile error
(irb):4: syntax error
        from (irb):4
irb(main):005:0> :"#$0"
=> :irb
irb(main):006:0> :"#$1"
ArgumentError: interning empty string
        from (irb):6
