    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In the repeated airing from on 9/24/05, the "Deep Thoughts" segment was edited out, yet had the segment's producer credited in the closing credits crawl.

      • In "The Continental" sketch, there are three mistakes: 1) Christopher Walken's mustache seems to peel off before the unseen visitor (the cameraman wearing an evening glove and a dress) throws champagne in his face. 2) Before Walken (as The Continental) says the line "Throw champagna in my face once, shame on you", he breaks character by mouthing something (what he mouthed was not obscene or anything, but he did mouth something before getting into character again). 3) Before Walken says the line "Throw champagna in my face twice, shame on me", he mouths "Wait a minute" and adjusts his fake mustache. I don't know if the fake mustache was supposed to be part of the sketch, but it looked wrong to me and someone had to said it.

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (6)

      • The theme song for "Stalk Talk" was The Police's "Every Breath You Take."

      • The version of "Ed Glosser: Trivial Psychic" shown on the DVD version of "The Best of Christopher Walken" has a generic musical sting that sounds deeper than what was heard in the NBC version. This particular sound effect occurs whenever Walken's character touches the hands of his co-workers.

      • Chris Farley and Tim Meadows do not appear in this episode.

      • In The Continental sketch, the woman who ran out of his apartment was Juila Sweeney.

      • The song "Boulevard of Broken Balls" was co-written by legendary SNL scribe Michael O'Donoghue and his wife, SNL Band pianist Cheryl Hardwick. This would be his last contribution to the show before his passing two years later.

      • Jan Hooks impersonates Sinéad O'Connor twice in the show to make light of the controversy from two episodes earlier.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The song that Christopher Walken sings and dances to with the female cast members is Irving Berlin's "Let's Face the Music and Dance".
