A cameo is made by Tootie from "Facts of Life" during the convention scene.
This episode contains 2 of the same messages, first, Dante is worrying about being canceled when Randal holds up a newspaper which states; "ABC loves Clerks," under the headline it states; "Also Sports Night." Then, in the unaired final episode, Dante worries that ABC will cancel their show while at Comic-Con. Randal insists that would never happen, then holds up a trade paper which declares, "ABC loves Clerks, Also Sports Night." Both series were canceled that year.
The sixth episode they had written was prophetically titled "the last episode ever". However they didn't even get to the sixth show.
Kevin and the rest of the writers intentionally set out to make an episode that takes place entirely in the Quik-Stop, with Dante and Randal only hearing about what's going on outside from Jay and Silent Bob.
Dante & Randal hold hands, then quickly stop with Jay and Silent Bob walk in. But after whipping their hands, they go back to holding hands again.
When Randal points to the roof, the camera goes up and we see daylight outside. The episode is supposed to be during the evening.
When Dante & Randal are crouching behind the counter with the FBI outside, a rice-bowl can be seen under the counter. This is an error put in by the animation director from overseas named Mr. Haun who was fired by the staff after the 2nd show, but wasn't really fired by the animation company until the 5th show.
The window that gets broken is mysteriously fixed in shots near the end of the episode.
If you watch closely, Creepy Guy's teeth vary between perfect and shabby conditions.
Despite being mentioned in the episode's title, Lando does not appear in this episode.
In retrospect, Kevin Smith said that they should have made this episode the first one to air on ABC because it was the strongest.
Originally when Dante was trying to get Jay to play on the little league team there was a montage of scenes of Dante doing complicated mathematical equations and scientific experiments, but in the end (and for time) the writers decided it would be funnier if Dante just simply asked Jay to play for the team.
In episode five, the yearbook features a picture of Randal holding a gun to another student's head. The caption underneath reads "best hall monitor".
When the evil scientist is removing his lab coat, the tribal uniform beneath is yellow for the first few seconds, until he puts on his hat and the uniform is red like the hat.
The name of the real-life New Jersey town featured in the episode (home of the 1998 Little League World Series championship team) is spelled "Toms River," not "Tom's River." (Note the extraneous apostrophe.)
Dante keeps trying to put a red hat on the head of the kid with the helmet. But when he goes to tape it on, it's now blue.
When Randal is in the control room, his clothes are fine. But when he goes down into the pit, his clothes are torn and ragged, despite not having done any work yet.
When Lando introduces the mayor, his mouth doesn't move.
Steve-Dave and Walt can be seen in the crowd again in this episode.
LOOK HARD: The burrito can be seen crawling to life.
