* HeyItsThatGuy: "And yes, that is the guy from ''TwoAndAHalfMen''." - [[GilmoreGirls Lorelai Gilmore]].
** Gina Gershon has a small part as Benny's best friend, Trombley.
** Let's not forget the original BuffyTheVampireSlayer, Kristy Swanson, in a very small role.
** And Steff is played by James Spader, better known for playing a BunnyEarsLawyer alongside WilliamShatner in ''BostonLegal''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen : Jodie Foster turned down the role of Andie. Anjelica Huston and Tracey Ullman were both considered for Iona.
* WordOfGay: Both Molly Ringwald and Jon Cryer have agreed that after high school, Duckie came out of the closet and is currently a HardGay, wearing no shirt and suspenders and attending Gay Pride events. Could be considered WordOfDante, of course.
** Keep in mind, though, that John Hughes originally wanted Andie and Duckie to end up together, so this is not really WordOfGod.
