      • In the "Citizen Kane" sketch, Dave's character has a fake hand, which is later stabbed by Kevin's character. Knowing this, if you watch his hand right from the beginning, you notice it never moves from it's one spot. Dave says he tried covering it a little a couple of times, so people wouldn't notice.

    • NOTES (2)

      • This episode features the famous "Citizen Kane" sketch that has been a staple of the KITH tours and performances for years. Also, watch closely, Kevin uses 2 knives. He throws the steak knife off the table so he doesn't mix them up and accidentally stabs Dave.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Skit: Citizen Kane
        This skit is in obvious reference to what has been referred to as the greatest film of all time, Citizen Kane.

      • n/a: The Outsiders
        The punks from the "Hey Man" sketches are roughly based off a number of the people from The Outsiders.

        The line Kevin is about to say is in reference to the Sigourney Weaver film Gorillas In The Mist.
