* 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 TimCurry [[{{Corpsing}} trying not to laugh]], while [[EnforcedMethodActing Martin Mull and Christopher Lloyd are looking around wondering who gave her those lines]].

** Director Jonathan Lynn was a fan of Creator/RowanAtkinson and wanted him to play Wadsworth, but [[ExecutiveMeddling the producers]] said that Atkinson wasn't a big enough name for American audiences. So instead he cast lifelong friend TimCurry.
