Ortiz the Dog Boy: Twelve milkmen IS theoretically possible. Thirteen is silly. Looks like there's one milkman too many, Coogan!
Ricky Coogan: I wonder if I they're still casting "Gremlins 3"...
Elijah C. Skuggs: [the EES board has turned into a giant shoe; imitating Ed Sullivan] That's a really big shoe...
The Bearded Lady: When I arrived here, I was nothing like I am now. I was confused; a walking contradiction, and I was so full of questions. Elijah C. Skuggs: [flashback] You know, you'd be better off without a dick. The Bearded Lady: [grunts angrily] Elijah C. Skuggs: Hey, you can keep the beard. [they hug]
- Director 'Winter, Alex' claims that Mr. T got stressed out and left the set three days before filming was finished. A "scab T" was required for one shot. This stand-in can be seen in one of the cage shots during the battle between the huge Stuey and Ricky. Mr. T was unavailable for re-dubbing the scene with all the milkmen, so Lee Arenberg did the voice-over instead.
Winter claims that the original producer of the film was fired by the studio for making too many weird movies.
Winter claims that Alex Zuckerman's ears are not really that big.
Winter claims that the drool and spit coming from his mouth after Ricky gets transformed was real, caused by the make-up.
Cameo: [Keanu Reeves] the Dog Boy
