- Dr. Fromberg: What was that you were watching, Mr. Brower? Michael: "Death, Death, Death..." Dr. Fromberg: 'Death, Death, Death..." Michael: ...Part 2" Dr. Fromberg: Oh my god. Tell me Michael, why do you watch these films? Michael: Really? Dr. Fromberg: Yes, I want to understand. Michael: Well, it's kind of an escape. Dr. Fromberg: An escape. Like lighting up a marijuana cigarette and escaping the real world? Like watching a pornographic sex film, getting an erection and raping someone? Michael: I don't think erections rape people, people rape people.
Michael: It wasn't supposed to be real!
Michael: Kyle! Kyle: No, it's Axl Rose!
[Micheal hugs Kyle] Kyle: Watch out for my lucky charms! They're magically delicious! Hahaha!
Kyle: That outfit's totally bitchin'. Stacie: You think so? Kyle: I know so. You look just like that one girl in that one video by what's his face. Only better.
- Is originally based on the computer-game "Brainwaves" (released as "Brainscanners" in Europe after the film was released).
In both Kyle and Kimberly's room, you see an Aerosmith poster for Get a Grip, which has the track Living on the Edge. Edward Furlong starred in the video.
The track on the CD played by Trickster is called "Welcome to this World" and is performed by Primus.
