James Merendino:  The director appears quickly as one of the punks in the "Explanation of Fight" slide show, and as the character "Freaky Deaky" at the party at Chris' house.

Goofs
When Stevo and the punks jump the neo-nazis at night, Heroin Bob's bat is obviously made of rubber as it bends on one the nazi's backs.

In the flashback at the end of the film (that can be deduced to take place no later than 1976), Steveo and Heroin Bob are ready to play a version of Dungeons & Dragons that didn't exist in 1976. The song playing in the background is "The Trees" by Rush on the 1978 Hemispheres album

Stevo's father claimed to have gone to Woodstock. Stevo would have been born in approx. 1963 to have graduated high school in 1981. So his father would have had a six year old son while being a student at Harvard University.

Quotes
Stevo: There's nothing going on. That's what I saw when I looked out over the city: nothing. How the Mormon settlers looked upon this valley and felt that it was the promised land is beyond me. I don't know, maybe it looked different back then.

Stevo: [about the "beat the shit" out of a guy who was having sex with his female friend] It wasn't that I loved Sandy, I knew that we had an understanding. But I discovered then that Chris was right, all things had systems, even me. I was about to beat the living shit out of this guy because he had invaded my territory. It was MY territory, no question about it, just like in the wild. I was following nature, and nature was order and order is the system.

Stevo: It really makes you think, doesn't it, Bob?
