The name of the mall that the gang was in this episode is also "Bayside" as that's the name of their high school.
(The girls see the two strange men enter the theater)
Lisa: It's them!
Kelly I hope they kill you two first!
This is the seventh episode where the entire gang excluding Dennis Haskins was not in school, the Max, or any places as they were in the school episodes, as they were in the mall.
In a rare break with tradition, the sounds of the movie heard in the theater are not the typical ones heard in all other episodes. The car chase, gun shots, and screams. They are altered in this episode because Zack and Slater's lines "interact" with the dialogue on the screen.
This is the second episode Elizabeth Berkeley (Jessie) missed due to an injury on the set. The other was "Rockumentary." Dennis Haskins also does not appear in this episode, even though they are both credited.
