* HeyItsThatGuy: ''The'' TedBaxter plays Judge Smails.
* RealLifeRelative: Creator/BillMurray and BrianDoyleMurray.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Harold Ramis has said that he was told that Rodney Dangerfield was interested in doing the second movie. Dangerfield actually was attached, but was displeased with the script (as many turned out to be). With no suitable rewrites, he backed out.
