    Notes (4)

    • The Clone's Movies are: Joan's 'The Truth Wears Sideburns', is an independant film about Abe. Cleo's 'The Best Of x5' is a biography about the original Cleopatra. JFK's 'Big Movie' is possibly just a home-made sex tape, shot in the Editing room. Abe's 'It Takes A Hero' is about an alien giraffe who plays football. Gandhi & Carter 's 'Black and Tan' is about 2 cops from different races.

    • This is the first episode where Gandhi is called Mahatma.

    • This episode first aired in the U.S. on Feb 10, 2003.

    • The Recurring Dolphin appears in Joan's film

    Trivia (27)

    • Ang Lee is directing Cleo's movie (she identifies him by name: "I'm sorry, Ang…")

    • The music that is being played at the track meet is a high school band style arrangement of the "Clone High Theme"

    • Gandhi: ..and I'm Tandoori Jones! The "Tan" of Black & Tan is taken from an Indian dinner called Tandoori Chicken.

    • Goof: In the "Previously On Clone High" clip, it shows a scene with Joan and Abe from Episode 1, even though it's only supposed to show clips from the last episode, Episode 3.

    • The number or members of the Shadowy Board seems to fluctuate from episode to episode. In Episode 2, there were 6 other board members and the Head of the board. In this episode, there appear to only be 4 other board members, and the Head. By the time the board gets to Scudworth's house for dinner, there is the Head, and only 3 board members remain.
