  • Trivia

    • In the "Celebrity" sketch, you can see the road blocks barring off the road they use for for the male hookers. It's only shadows and a partial reflection of the orange baracades, but you can see them.

    • In the "Celebrity" sketch, you can see the camera man in Scott's reflective glasses.

    • In the "Freak" sketch, you can see the orange tube in Kevin's hand that he used to squirt the fake blood on his face.

  • Quotes

    • Nosebleeder: (while taking his lunch break at the freak show, some kids try to pressure him into performing) Look kids, I don't have to impress anyone anymore. Oh sure, when I was young and I was desperate to make friends, I'd nosebleed at the drop of a hat. But now I accept myself for what I am: a 30-ish bachelor whose interests include model airplanes and pottery, and whose nosebleeding. And if you can't accept that, then I'm afraid your friendship isn't needed here.
      Kids: Friendship?!? (giggling) Who wants to be YOUR friend? You're a FREAK!
      Nosebleeder: Piss off! Just piss off!

    • Gordon: (blaming his wife for why he got fired) That lunch you packed me, it was so horrible, made me wig out. I went crazy! I went all wiggy, Fran!
      Fran: Jeez...(defensively) It was a perfectly good lunch.
      Gordon: Soup in a bag, Fran? SOUP IN A BAG?!? A man works all morning, and he's subjected to SOUP in a BAG?

    • Bruce: Hello. (Pause) Very nice duck.
      Mark: Thanks. (Pause)
      Bruce: Hold it! How's a guy afford a nice duck like that on a cop's salary? (Pause)
      Mark: Found it.

  • Notes

    • The "Celebrity" sketch was meant to be a quick outlook on how many celebrities had their death listed as cancer, when they really died of AIDS. Several throughout the 80's and 90's did just that.

    • It's rumored the "Tampa Bay" sketch is based off a real joke Bruce's dad played on his family.

    • The "Piano" sketch has been dubbed as one of the best in KITH history.

  • Allusions

    • Scott: gig on Saturday Night Live.
      A quick reference to Producer Lorne Michaels' other show, Saturday Night Live.
