* ActorAllusion:
** When Tommy's future step-mother first appears she is referred to as being a "ten". Bo Derek has been referred to as being a "ten" before in ''Film/{{Ten}}''.
** During the flight to Chicago, Creator/DavidSpade is a rude flight attendant. [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Why does that sound familiar?]]
* ActorSharedBackground: Like Tommy, Creator/ChrisFarley also graduated from Marquette University in Wisconsin.
* FakeAmerican: Dan Aykroyd (Ontarian by birth) takes a Superfans-esque Chicago accent in playing Zalinsky.
** ActorAllusion: [[Film/TheBluesBrothers Not the first time he's put on a (convincing) Chicago accent]].
* ThrowItIn: While there are probably other examples, "Does this make me look fat?" "No, your face does" is confirmed to have begun as an ad-lib.
