  • Trivia

    • In the "Flogging" sketch, Kevin doesn't write anything down ont he piece of paper. Yet when Dave and him come back from the gym, he's written a name on the paper, that he folded into his pocket. Remember, this is a flaw in the sketch. In reality, they walked out while a tape played of them at the gym for the audience, and they walked right back in when it was done.

  • Quotes

    • Bruce: If I can't keep Mr. Stevensen, I'm going to hold my breath... until I turn gay!

    • Scott: Oh, don't call for help.
      Dave: Oh, well you leave me precious little alternative.
      Scott: Oh...
      Dave: (Dave puts his head out the window) Help. Police. Bein' robbed.
      Kevin: Coming.
      Scott: Well, now you've driven me into a homicidal frenzy.
      Dave: Like I care. (Scott now slap-taps Dave's head.)
      Dave: Ow. Wouldja just stop it? (Kevin enters silently through the door, walks across the room,past Dave and Scott, sits down, and points his gun at them. Meanwhile Dave is now slap-tapping Scott.)
      Scott: Oh, why don't you?
      Dave: Oh, well I asked you.
      Kevin: `Scuse me.
      Scott: What? Are you going to debate, because you went to college?
      Dave: This has nothing to do with my education.
      Scott: Oh, exactly, just because I was educated on the street. . .
      Kevin: (Loud enough to be heard over Scott and Dave, but not a yell) Freeze! Police.

  • Notes

    • The gym area that Kevin and Dave get flogged at is the same used in the "Eradicator" sketch. Hence, this is why the only other Kid you see at the gym is Bruce, who played the Eradicator.

    • The Kids didn't have enough women to make 30 Helens, so Mark put on a wig and a pink dress, and is the 30th Helen walking in from the left.

    • This show was pushed up a week due to Thanksgiving, and the massive amount of movies HBO threw onto the schedule for that week.

  • Allusions

    • Mark: Once, I bought a truck...
      "The Trucker" sketch is a parody of how Federal Express got their start.
