During the "man on the street" segment, the tough guy's one punch misses Alan by a solid foot, yet Kalter still reacts to it. At Dave's request, the gaffe is shown in slow-motion shortly afterward.
The seal that Dave slaps on the coffee cup for the president is actually upside down.
Footage from this episode was later used in the Casey Affleck film I'm Still Here, about a fake "Joaquin Phoenix" character who leaves acting to pursue a singing career.
During this episode, a planned sketch with the fat detective pursuing Dave (one of the "new characters" for the season introduced in the 1/25 episode) was badly botched. The original idea was that, almost at the end of the detective's rant, he was supposed to pull a cat out of nowhere (well, his coat) as an evidence against Dave. But, on air, the cat slipped out of the raincoat right at the beginning of the scene. Amazingly, the actor playing the detective managed to stay in character all the time: of course, the sketch had no big ending, as the cat's appearance was no more a surprise.
The "Underworld Evolution" disclaimer is completely wrong. It states "AB positive blood is the rarest of the ABO blood types, and a person with AB positive can only receive a transfusion from someone else with AB positive blood."
Well, not only is AB+ the THIRD rarest blood type (B- and AB- are slightly rarer), but it is also refered to as "the universal recipient type" because a person who has it can in fact receive blood of ANY type!
Apparently, the hot girl that Rupert makes out with lives in a supply closet.
Dave stated that he had "never seen anything like" the last large bat presented by Amanda Lollar. This, however, isn't entirely true. On November 27, 1984, on "Late Night," bat expert Dr. Merlin Tuttle brought out a similar giant bat. Dave's comment at the time: "What have you done to that chihuahua?!?!"
During his World Series report, Biff claims that he didn't know the Florida Marlins existed prior to last week. He must have short-term memory, since he reported from the Marlins' stadium for his report in 1997.
I know that Dave can be a hermit, but couldn't have he gone to the hospital to reattach the tip of his pinky?
This was the most bizarre musical guest display that I have ever seen in the history of Letterman. The Vines were highly anticipated since they have a killer record out but Craig Nicholls was simply out of his gourd! The guy falls down, knocks his guitar severely out of tune then decides to scream and beat his guitar strings unmercifully, and then hits the microphone when coming back "together". I have never seen Dave so knocked off guard than after this performance. A classic!
Dave says he can't speak French, even though he did an impression of John Wayne speaking French in Show #0926.
Due to news coverage of the Millennium, there was no "Rockin' New Year's Eve" that year. So why would Dick Clark be standing in Times Square?
"NYPD Blue" is filmed in New York, but they clip they show of Inky flaunting his derriere is shown in an episode of The Late Show taped in Los Angeles.
The Flashdancers cocktail waitress in the sailor skit is Jennifer Warfel, and no, they were not real sailors.
When Dave impales Paul with the pin on the 18th hole, the flag goes from right-side-up to upside-down.
With still a week to go before Conan O'Brien would be ready to take over NBC's Late Night , NBC aired the 1982 LNwDL pilot in the 12:35 EST timeslot, directly after this episode ended. They proceded to air his first ten episodes over the next two weeks.
