Guest-star Anthony Michael Hall played cast-member Chevy Chase's son in National Lampoon's Vacation (1983).See more »
Factual errors: The tiger stripe M16 used by Chang in Modern Warfare, the paintball episode of the previous season, apparently (by the feeding hopper and bore of the barrel) fires 17mm paintball pellets. However, the guns used in this episode are not, in fact, paintball guns, but gas powered airsoft guns equipped with paintball pellets. These guns require a 6mm pellet and would not be compatible with the 17mm pellets in the cache.See more »

Yes, excellent!, 6 May 2011
Author: Arne Brathole from Norway

This has to be, by far, the best episode yet. I have been a little disappointed by this season as a whole, however this does more than enough to rectify that. I was so amazed, I started it over the second it ended. Its absolute madness and humor made with directing at Hollywood level makes this show arguably the best NBC has in its roster.

The episode had so many moments you want to watch over again and again. Especially Alison Brie comes to life in this special. Would love to see her more in that role!

Being a two-header, I can hardly wait till next week!
