      • Jennifer Aniston was the fifth cast member from Friends to host SNL.

      • The "Weekend Update Forum" segment with Tracy Morgan and Colin Quinn discussing race relations originally appeared in the McDonald/Dr. Dre dress rehearsal.

      • Sketches not shown in the 60 minute version: "Pretty Living," "Pokemon Parents," "Kim Plunkett," "Roberta's Thanksgiving," "Genital Herpes," and Sting and Cheb Mami's performance of "Desert Rose."

      • John Carpenter was paid standard scale ($946) for his appearance.

      • Although Jennifer Aniston says that Brad Pitt is overseas promoting Fight Club, Pitt was actually at the show and attended an SNL after-party with her.

      • During the closing credits, Will Ferrell held up a sign that read, "Thank You Tim Herlihy," while many of his fellow cast members shouted "Herlihy!" It was Tim Herlihy's last show. He had been with "SNL" since 1994, serving as writer, head writer, and eventually producer. Herlihy's voice made it on the air for his final show, as he played "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" winner John Carpenter's father in the evening's cold-opening.

      • Jimmy Fallon played John Carpenter during the dress rehearsal. The real Carpenter showed up thirty minutes before the live show began.

      • This is one of Jim Downey's favorite episodes/hosts.

      • Since Sting and Cheb Mami's performance of "Desert Rose" is cut from the syndicated version, Cheb Mami does not appear in the syndicated version at all, not even during the goodnights.

      • This is the first episode featuring Jimmy Fallon's character Nick Burns.

      • The John Carpenter who appeared in opening sketch was not the horror movie director but the first millionaire on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? He is the only Millionaire contestant to say "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
