    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Linda Taylor briefly appeared at the beginning of the show as the shot panned away from the musicians as Drew came to his desk. Greg and Brad appeared in the Ryan clips in Newsflash, therefore they are listed as 'guest stars.'

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (7)

      • This was the final original episode to air on ABC.

      • Themed Restaurant shows how arbitrary the ABC BSnP can be. In Episode 105, one labeled as Too Hot For Whose Line, Colin's hands groping at his, Wayne's, and Ryan's crotches was censored over. But, Ryan grabbing a healthy portion of himself, imitating an unfortunately common action of baseball players due to obvious reasons, at the end of this game is left intact; possibly because this episode aired at 10 PM, where these standards are not as strict as the 'family time' of 8 PM.

      • Magnet Man is also the name of one of the enemy Robot Masters from the Nintendo video game Mega Man 3. So, in this game, he's a hero, but in "real life," he's a villain.

      • Drew couldn't pronounce Busby Berkley at the beginning of Song Styles, which lead into a Dean Martin impression.

      • Highlights of some of the Ryan clips in News Flash:
        Episode 16 - Ryan as a clown hit in the face with a pie
        Episode 43 - Ryan as a man who dreams of starring in a Busby Berkeley musical during Weird Newscasters
        Episode 11 - Ryan as a masochist in Let's Make A Date
        Episode 1 - Ryan's classic moment as a foal being born during Party Quirks
        Episode 29 - Ryan as a Mafia don from Weird Newscasters
        Episode 14 - Ryan as the Wicked Witch Of The West from Weird Newscasters

      • Colin names Ryan's character 'Norman Desmond' in Weird Newscasters. Norma Desmond was a character from the movieSunset Boulevard played by Gloria Swanson. Carol Burnett later did a popular takeoff of the character on The Carol Burnett Show. The character was basically what Ryan's quirk was, a washed up silent movie star who was slightly insane. Colin has occasionally cited the show as an influence on his style of comedy, Tim Conway in particular. Fans of Whose Line? have compared Colin and Ryan to Tim Conway and Harvey Korman.

      • This episode was scheduled to air May 8, 2003, but was preempted for sweeps for All-American Girl. It was then scheduled to air July 15, 2004, but preempted for the two-hour miniseries finale of Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital. Then, after being moved to July 22, 2004, it was rescheduled one more time for a re-broadcast of the premiere episode of the new ABC dramedy The Days. You follow? The problem being that it wasn't rescheduled after July 22 -- until it became the de facto series finale. A fitting end to the atrocious handling of the show by ABC over the six year run.
