During "The Battle of Britain" the wobbly flashback effect causes the picture to jump when the effect is stopped.
The booth can be heard cueing Eric Idle to begin the show and during Laraine Newman's introduction to "The Battle of Britain."
The boom can be seen during the "Trans-Eastern Flight Attendant" sketch. It is much more noticable on the HD broadcast.
Amy Carter's "Nanny" (Garrett Morris) told a street-tough version of Goldilocks, claiming she drove north to the Everglades after sticking up a grocery in Tampa. No one can drive due north to the Everglades, which is on the southern tip of the Florida peninsula. (The closest anyone comes to driving north to it, is to come from the Florida Keys.)
In one sketch, Bill Murray plays a guy who can only say five words "That's true you're absolutley right" At one point, Murray says "That's true, you're absolutely right about that," thus blowing the joke.
The host of "Hollywood Bingo" (played by Steve Martin) says the object of the game is to get six squares in a row, but Bingo only requires five in a row.
Fran Tarkenton incorrectly introduces Donnie Harper's singing group as the "Voices of America."
At the beginning of one sketch featuring Ruth Gordon and Gilda Radner in a darkened living room, both can be seen watching a movie titled "Babies in Makeup".
The title of that movie would later be used for the name of a film short that aired in the Robert Conrad/Allman Brothers episode in season 7.
During Weekend Update, Ralph Nader plays a representative of a fictional oil company "Texxon". The "Texxon" reference first used here would be later used in future SNL episodes, especially during various episodes in season 7 and 8.
In the Televised Execution sketch (with Tom Schiller as Dean Slydell, the convict), Bill Murray accidentally calls Dean Slydell "Phil" in preparation for his talk with Phil Hymes, SNL's actual lighting director
Ralph Nader had worried all week about the sight gag in which his shirt was equipped with an air bag. Though the air bag inflated in dress rehearsal, it didn't work on-air. (Three years later, an episode of 3-2-1 Contact would successfully pull off the sight gag on Rita Moreno.)
In the "Right to Exterme Stupidity" sketch, Bergen (as Fern) accidentally calls Radner (as Lisa) "Fern." Both actresses break character but Radner quickly rebounds ("You know, we all can't be as bright as Fern here...!") while Bergen laughs through the rest of the sketch. The blooper leads to a much funnier interpretation of the sketch's original premise.
Don Pardo was born in 1918, not 1926.
Allegedly, George Harrison was so stoned during "Here Comes the Sun" he forgot the words to his own song.
In the Jeopardy 1999! sketch, the card about Chevy Chase has the word "who's" in place of the correct phrasing, "whose."
At the end of the "Beatniks" sketch, the caption says "Francesca Richardson," while Don Pardo says "Francesca Robertson."
Right before Chevy says "Live from New York..." you can hear an off-screen voice yell "Tell Billy, turn it on."
The song "Hula Hoop" sung by Rita Coolidge was written by a young T-Bone Burnett who was fresh off of touring with Bob Dylan in his 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue.
Burnett later recorded the song himself in his cult 1983 album "Proof Through The Night."
Repeat broadcasts of the show made an edit to the goodnights: the scene cuts abruptly between "that's our show for tonight" and "we just want today". Also, to eliminate a Pardo voiceover "Happy Trails" is looped from the beginning of the goodnights (the segment with Dan Aykroyd's spoken "until! we meet! again!" is used).
John Sebastian says "Can I start again?" in response to microphone feedback on the first verse of "Welcome Back." He eventually stops the song and starts again from the beginning.
