In 2004, this episode's guest star Tina Fey and regular Amy Poehler would pair up on Saturday Night Live to become the first all women anchor team on SNL's Weekend Update.
This show was made in New York City, and this episode is from 1999. Since this was shot before the attacks on Sept. 11th, during the final scene, the Twin Towers are very prominent in the background.
The ending is a parody of the old Japanese, American-dubbed monster movies.
