Corrected entry: The "Funeral Scene" was cut due to budget problems (Only $27,000 to work with). the scene is shown in full in the Clerks comic book, and isn't actually Randal "knocking the coffin over". Dante was once caught giving oral by the parents of the dead girl, Randal complains that he's bored by this party, so Dante gives him the car keys. Randal drops the keys into the coffin and they go down the girl's skirt. The parents catch Dante with his hands down there, trying to find the keys and scream bloody murder at him and chase him out. This scene also features "Fingercuffs" (actually called that by Randall).
Corrected entry: Not a mistake as such, but worth noticing. When Dante and Randal are discussing the pay rate for the "booth cleaners" at adult entertainment centres, a man comes up to them and says that he is very offended with their language and discussion topic, and he will never come back to the Quick Stop store again. If you look at what the man is purchasing, you can see that it is a bottle of window cleaner and a roll of paper towels. Perhaps he works at one of these establishments?
Corrected entry: When Veronica enters the store and starts spraying everyone with a fire extinguisher the Chewley's Gum Rep tries to make a run for it. As he heads to the door you can clearly see the fire extinguisher still hanging on the wall near the door Veronica just entered.
Corrected entry: Isn't it odd that anyone can walk into the store, ask for "a pack of cigarettes", and the clerk behind the counter will know which brand they mean? Surely the store sells more than one brand, and they didn't even come up with fictional cigarette names.
Corrected entry: The scene where the old man dies in the bathroom, while pleasuring himself to a dirty magazine, his erection is still in place when he is loaded into the ambulance. A scene later shows Jay sitting on the bumper of the ambulance eating something, and the erection is gone.
Corrected entry: They say it's Saturday - why does Veronica have class and a sorority meeting on a Saturday?
[Randal reads a newspaper while a customer studies two rental choices.]
Customer: They say so much, but they never tell you if it's any good.
[Randal continues reading, not even ackowledging her.]
Customer: Are either of these any good?
[Randal continues to read.]
Customer: Are either of these any good?
Randal: I don't watch movies.
Customer: Well, have you heard anything about either of them?
Customer: You've never heard anybody say anything about either movie?
Randal: I find it's best to stay out of other people's affairs.
[The customer turns around, then turns back with the same two movies.]
Customer: Well, how about these two movies?
[Randal still never looks up.]
Randal: They suck!
Customer: I just held up the same two movies. You're not even paying attention.
Randal: No, I wasn't.
Customer: I don't think your manager would appreciate...
Randal: I don't appreciate your ruse, ma'am.
Customer: I beg your pardon?
Randal: Your ruse. Your cunning attempt to trick me.
Customer: I only pointed out that you weren't paying any attention to what I was saying.
Randal: I hope it feels good.
Customer: You hope what feels good?
Randal: I hope it feels so good to be right. There is nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others, is there?
Customer: Well this is the last time I ever rent here...
Randal: You'll be missed.
Customer: Screw you!
[The customer storms out. Randal runs out into the street.]
Randal: Hey you're not allowed to rent here anymore!
Trivia: Kevin Smith wrote the part of Jay specifically for Jason Mewes, basing the character almost entirely on him. Despite the nearly exact replica of himself, Jason was terrified at having to "act" it out in front of the camera. Kevin gave a months worth of lessons to Jason in how to act like Jason Mewes. They even had to get him drunk before almost every take just so he wouldn't tense up. He was so camera shy that during the scene where Jay and Silent Bob dance there are no crew members around. The crew turned the camera on, then everyone went into the RST Video so he could dance by himself.
