UHF

Easter egg: Go to the side of the DVD that doesn't have Special Features on it. There should be a button for it anyhow. If you click it, Weird Al will come out and say, "Hey, the special features are on the other side of the DVD." Do it again. And one more time. The last time he screams at you.

Easter egg: Go to Special Features and highlight Commentary and click to the left and enter.

Easter egg: Put the UHF DVD in your DVD player, when the Main Menu pops up, Go to scene selections, and then highlight chapters 13-16 and then go down, and the thing on the bottom between the knobs will be highlighted. Go there, and you will see a scene from the telethon with Fran.

Plot hole: Throughout the telethon we see volunteers taking pledges over the telephone. As with all telethons the vast majority of pledges will be paid by cheque. Instant bank transfers were unknown in the days the film was set and the telethon ends at midnight, at which time American banks are most certainly shut! How does George manage to have $75,000 in CASH for Big Louie on site that very night? Not every single pledge would (or could) go out to the remote site to pay in cash - not at that time of the night, anyway - and he couldn't raise more than the required sum as this was a share offer and an oversell would reduce the value of individual shareholder's equity.

Crazy Ernie: If nobody comes down here and buys a car in the next hour, I'm gonna club this baby seal. That's right! I'm gonna club this seal to make a better deal. You know I'll do it, too, cause I'm crazy.

Trivia: The "Spatula City" sign was placed on a real billboard in Tulsa, OK, for the film, and was left there for several months after shooting was over. According to the DVD commentary, many tourists would exit the freeway like the billboard said, and would drive for long periods of time looking for Spatula City, thinking that it was real.

Question: What is meant by "We don't need no stinking baggers" line in the movie?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: It's making fun of "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" which is an often referenced 'quote' from "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (Actually, the real line is "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.", but that's the way people say it.)
