* Les Grossman's name seems to just be a pun on the phrase "Gross Man," but there's an extra meaning in his name. As a Hollywood exec, he doesn't care about anything other than how well a film does at the box office, or its gross.

* Four-Leaf Tayback's inability to correctly identify a rifle by the sound it makes when it discharges is a dead giveaway that he is a fraud. Any soldier who has been in combat should be able to tell you ''exactly'' what kind of rifle made what kind of sound, because their life would depend on them knowing.

* After Alpa [[spoiler:accidentally outs himself as a closet gay]] to the others, Kirk tells him "[[spoiler:Everyone's gay]] once in a while; this is Hollywood!" Considering Lazarus is known for his extreme method acting and one of his other roles brought up involve playing [[spoiler:a homosexual monk in an Irish monastery]], he'd be best fit out of anybody in the group to tell Alpa such.

* Les Grossman asking the Key Grip to hit Damien seems random. But when you look into filming, part of a Grip's job description is lifting heavy objects. So Grossman wanted the strongest guy to hit Cockburn.

* When Kirk gave the 'retard' speech, a lot of people complained about his blatant use of the word 'retard'. But that Kirk was Lincoln Osiris, who lived in 1969. A guy in 1969 would not think less than to say the word 'retard'. Kirk was simply talking like a guy who lives in 1969. He wasn't being insulting, he was being in character.

* When Kirk gave the 'retard' speech, a lot of people complained about his blatant use of the word 'retard'. But then, I remembered that Kirk was Lincoln Osiris who lived in 1969. A guy in 1969 would not think less than to say the word 'retard'. Kirk was simply talking like a guy who lives in 1969. He wasn't being insulting, he was being in character.
** Hmm, that is an interesting take. Though, I always thought it was a satire on how out of touch and insensitive actors, like Kirk, are. It wasn't making fun of the mentally handicapped, but making fun of the type of person who throws the word 'retard' around without care.
*** Also actors like Speedman, who take on roles like that solely for OscarBait and proceed to play an unrealistic (and occasionally offensive) stereotype, thinking that such a role automatically guarantees them an award.
