  • Trivia

    • In the Ferey Muthar Talk Show sketch, Tarik Ozekial's(Darrell Hammond's) mustache peels off in the middle of the sketch. Despite Halash's (Ian McKellen's) best efforts to stick the mustache on Ozekial's face again, it doesn't work. Horatio Sanz (as Ferey Muthar) ad-libs by pointing out that Ozekial (Hammond's) mustache is fake and that he's not man enough to grow a real one.

    • The NBC rerun of this episode (as well as the 60-minute edit) inexplicably replaces the "Versace Oscar Party" title card with the title card from the "DisMissed" sketch from the Jonny Moseley/OutKast episode.

    • When announcing the host and musical guest for the next new episode, Don Pardo announces the musical guest as Jimmy Eats World.
