Trivia

During the "World Forum" sketch, one of the questions was about when Coventry City last won the FA Cup final (a soccer competition based in the United Kingdom); at the time of the episode's airing, Coventry City hadn't won any FA Cup finals. They eventually won their first FA Cup final match in 1987. See more »

Goofs

In the "Spam" scene at the diner, the woman asks the waitress if the diner serves anything without spam in it (after the waitress lists everything on the menu), to which she replies "Well; spam, egg, sausage, and spam doesn't have much spam in it." However, the first two meals on her original list were "Egg and bacon" and "Egg, sausage and bacon;" with no mention of spam until "Egg and spam." See more »
