When Megan Mullally is introduced in "Celebrity Poker" as Tammy Fae and all throughout it, you can clearly see she does not have fake finger nails. When they go to the "Lipstick cam" and you see her cards are smudged with make up, the hands holding them have fake fingernails painted red.
Don Pardo seems to be out of it during the opening credits. At first, he introduces Chris Parnell as Chris Kattan, then corrects himself. Then, for Maya Rudolph, he seems to mumble her name, making it sound like he said "Maria".
When this episode was repeated, the "Chris Kattan-Chris Parnell" and "Maria Rudolph" blunders were corrected.
During the introduction of the "Newlyweds" sketch, they mention other shows on MTV like "Real World: Uranus." They also say "Newlyweds" is the longest running MTV show ever, when in actuality "The Real World" premired eleven years before Nick and Jessica's program.
Nick's microphone didn't work in the opening monologue.
In the "Cash On Earth" sketch, Darrell Hammond almost breaks character when the winged CD boxed set "flew" in.
In the monologue, the young Al Sharpton (Tracy Morgan) tells the real Al Sharpton that he's on a racist show, entertaining people in Iowa. At the time this episode first came on, Iowa didn't air this episode because of fear of breaking equal-time laws.
In the monolouge Terrell refers to Kelly Ripa as a "he."
When the camera first pans towards the audience during the monologue, you can see Jim Downey wearing reading glasses and going over what appears to be a script.
Will Forte's mustache comes off in the Justin and Kermit sketch.
During the "Omeletville" sketch, Justin's character keeps pressing the PLAY button on his tape recorder to play different music, but he never actually presses the STOP button.
When introducing John Mayer, Jack Black mispronounces his name as John Meyer. The NBC rerun (and the 60-minute edit) have corrected this.
Patrick Fitzpatrick says he has 23 children, but he states 25 different names.
In the "Regis & Kelly" sketch, Kelly Ripa mentions that she will not be pregnant again for another six months. Regis then says "Wait 'til October." Six months from May would be November, not October.
The "Manservant" sketch seemed to be quite similar to a sketch from year 15 called "His Face," where host Corbin Bernsen alienates his date (Jan Hooks) with his fascination with his face.
When Goby asked if Jared wanted the blue or the red bong, and Jared said that he wanted the blue bong, he took the red one.
The dress rehearsal version of The Continental for this episode is slightly different than the live show version: 1) Walken (as The Continental) has a lab coat and goggles in the dress rehearsal version and doesn't change out of them until the unseen visitor finds the "Girls Gone Wild" video in one of The Continental's books. In the live version, he doesn't have the lab coat and goggles on at all. 2) In the dress rehearsal version, the unseen visitor is actually a new neighbor who visits The Continental. In the live version, the unseen visitor is a model who's being interviewed by The Continental for his new line of cosmetics. 3) Walken wears a black, slicked back wig in the dress rehearsal version; the live version, his real hair is used (this could also be because the first sketch was "Pranksters" where Walken's real hair was also used and there was no time between sketches to change).
In the "Crazy Life Raft Captain" sketch, you can tell that Chris Walken and the three featured players (Meyers, Armisen, and Forte) are on a raft attached to a mechanical device to simulate that they're in the water.
In "The Continental" sketch, The Continental (Walken) offers the unseen viewer Andre's Cold Duck. Typically, a cold duck is a drink served with sparkling burgundy and champagne (or champagna, as The Continental would say), and earlier on, he mentioned that he wasn't going to serve champagne again because of the whole anti-French kick that was in the news at the time of this episode.
The archive footage for the Chanukah Song sketch is much different than when it was featured in Brittany Murphy's show.
On the reruns "The Hanukkah Song 3," Rob Schnieder puts on a blonde wig and sings with the Drie-Dels. Schnieder wore a blonde wig in dress rehearsal, but he didn't during the live broadcast. They thought that it was better the first time it was performed, so that is the version that now appears in reruns.
