** There were plans to do an ending with each of the six characters being guilty of the murders, however it was scrapped when the studio and Johnathan Lynn felt it would be too hard to come up with an ending for each character, plus the twist of Waddsworth without seeming contrived and confusing, so only three endings, originally four, were made.

* ThrowItIn: The famous "I hated her ''sooooooooooooooooo'' much... Flames! Flames on the side of my face! Breathing... breathe-... heaving breaths..." scene resulted from Madeleine Kahn taking the original line as written in the script ("[[spoiler: Yes. I did it. I killed Yvette. I hated her.]]") and adding onto it, with the knowledge of director Jonathan Lynn (and no one else). You can see Creator/TimCurry [[{{Corpsing}} trying not to laugh]], while [[EnforcedMethodActing Martin Mull and Christopher Lloyd are looking around wondering who gave her those lines]].
