During Weekend Update, Seth Meyers refers to Dancing with the Stars champion Emmitt Smith as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Though it seems very likely that Smith will be elected someday, he won't be eligible for induction until 2009.
In the opening credits of the original broadcast, Don Pardo mispronounced Ludacris' name twice. The correct pronunciation is the same as the word "ludicrous", whereas Pardo pronounced the host's name as "loo-DAY-cris." In repeats, the credits were re-recorded with the correct pronunciation.
Darrell Hammond's moustache falls off during the "Old Friends" skit, prompting Ludacris to ad-lib and bring an awkward end to the sketch.
During the cold opening, the audience cheers prematurely, as the adjacent stage lights go up early and reveal the special guest star. As a result, TV viewers watched the audience clap enthusiastically as Lorne Michaels receives a turkey club sandwich from an unknown NBC employee.
During the "Queen's Visit" sketch, Hugh Laurie has difficulty getting his reading glasses on with one hand, and thus ad-libs to bypass the need for them.
At the beginning of the monologue, the canned applause track keeps going after Hugh Laurie starts talking.
At the end of the Ghost Hunters sketch, the FOX logo from the World Series sketch appears onscreen for about five seconds.
After the "2006 World Series" sketch, Don Pardo announces the next live broadcast as "Monday" November 11.
In the "House of Carters" sketch, Nick and Aaron are using a PSP that's not even turned on.
Apparently, the private school mentioned in the "Mrs. Hastings" sketch has two names; Bill Hader's character refers to it as both "Westchester Academy" and "St. Ambrose."
"The Out-of-Breath-Jogger from 1982" mentions that President Ronald Reagan has problems with Mikhail Gorbachev, but Gorbachev was not elected Premier of the Soviet Union until 1985. The leader at that time was former KGB chief Yuri Andropov.
For this episode only, the opening credits were tweaked a bit; the host and musical guest were displayed as just pictures, and the show title changed to the '81-'85 show logo.
Maya Rudolph's character in the TSA Airport Security Sketch looks and sounds like her short-lived recurring character, Jackie. This character appeared in two episodes during the 2000-01 season.
Don Pardo stumbles in the opening credits when the picture of The Killers is on, prompting him to rush through saying "...and your host Dane Cook" before the picture left the screen.
Amy Poehler states that this is Tina Fey's 180th show on SNL, when in fact she was a credited writer for 178 broadcasts and Weekend Update anchorperson for 117.
"Unsolved Mysteries" was canceled in 2002, so it doesn't make sense that they would have a sketch about filming a re-enactment. But, in a somewhat ironic twist, since the sketch aired in the later half of the show, it was shown on May 14th. Robert Stack, the host of UM, died on May 14th, 2003.
At the beginning of the "Please Don't Cut My Testicles" sketch, Chris Parnell has a boombox but at the end of the piece it's nowhere to be found.
In the film "Ariell & Ephraim," 21st century cars can be seen on the street, despite the fact that it's supposed to take place in 1991.
At the end of the "Universal Studios" sketch, Tom Hanks' character calls his mother via cell phone. If he had the phone all along, why didn't he use it beforehand?
Also in the Universal Studios sketch, the brothers waiting in line watch their mother ride the "Revenge of the Mummy" roller coaster. In real life, this is impossible, since the ride is fully enclosed in both the Florida and Hollywood incarnations.
