Trivia

The movie from this episode was selected without any of the writers having watched it all the way through. It was only while writing the episode that the entire film was watched, and it was revealed that the movie contained a graphic rape/murder scene halfway through. The shocked writers edited the entire scene out of the episode, and from that time on all movies were watched in their entirety before being selected for use on the show. See more »

Goofs

During the "Sidehackin'" song in one of the bridge skits, a blue-screen is used to show footage from the movie in the background. However, Joel is wearing a blue jumpsuit costume which bleeds into the movie footage, and the neck of Crow's blue guitar also causes the movie to show through. See more »

Quotes

Crow T. Robot: [as a somber looking Rommel sulks around, following a missing reel in which his girlfriend is brutally raped and murdered] For those of you wondering at home, Rita is dead.
