    • Randal: You know, if this were a sitcom and we got locked in a freezer, we'd probably flash back to all our old episodes.

  • Notes

    • LOOK HARD: At the end, when Jay and Silent Bob are doing the "Rainy Day Fun" clip, when they begin to laugh at the end, Silent Bob's lower body has been left undrawn.

    • LOOK HARD: Gwyneth Paltrow's name is misspelled in the credits.

    • LOOK HARD: In a clever segue, the animators took the seagulls from the Real World throwaway gag and put them in the window of the Quick Stop in the very next scene.

    • LOOK HARD: Going back to the 70's, you can see John Travolta's character from Saturday Night Fever (1977). And in the 80's, President Reagan walks by the Quick Stop.

    • Full episode title: The Clipshow Wherein Dante And Randal Are Locked In The Freezer And Remember Some Of The Great Moments Of Their Lives.

    • When this episode aired on ABC, a scene was omitted (Probably for fear that Hanna-Barbera and/or Steven Spielberg would sue). While locked in the video store, the guys talk about the fictional film "Flintstones List." While a clip from the film is seen in the video/DVD version, on ABC the clip was cut out and the music was heard briefly as Dante and Randall looked at the TV screen.

    • This was the second and last episode to air on ABC.

  • Allusions

    • National Lampoon's Animal House
      Jay: . . . as for Silent Bob, well he became Senator Robert Blutarsky.
      This is an allusion to National Lampoon's Animal House (1978). At the end of the movie we find out that John Belushi's character Bluto Blutarsky becomes senator.

    • Deep Blue Sea
      Visual: Samuel L. Jackson is eaten by a shark.
      This scene is a parody of the same scene from the 1999 movie Deep Blue Sea.

    • The Flintstones/Shindler's List
      Randal: Wanna watch a movie? Flintstones List.
      This is an obvious parody of the famous cartoon series The Flintstones (1960) and the Oscar winning film Schindler's List (1993).

    • Happy Days
      Randal: Boy Happy Days sure had a lot of great moments.
      This line and several references after it of course refer to the classic sitcom Happy Days.

    • The Real World
      Dante: But you got us thrown out . . . from The Real World!
      The parody itself is a reference to the second season of The Real World.

    • Star Wars
      Randal: Uhhh, it's Hoth cold.
      This and several other references made in the freezer are made about the Star Wars series.

    • Batman
      Dante: (holding a rope that goes slack when they stop) Why are we walking like this?
      This is a reference to the way Fox used to shoot the scenes in Batman when they would climb the wall with the Batrope.

      Old Jay: Looking back, it was the best summer of my life.
      This final scenes was a parody of the film Stand By Me (1986).
