Deliberate mistake: When MIB agents exit the lift to get into the main hall of the MIB Office, the lift opens halfway up the wall and they need to go down a little platform. But when K and J return during the lockdown and face the trashcan with guns, the lift opens at floor level, so it can be conveniently peppered with bullets. (01:02:05)

Visible crew/equipment: When Agent Kay is in the elevator with the little worm dudes he swings down and starts shooting at the robot. When he swings down you can see the safety harness between his legs. (01:02:50)

More quotes from Men in Black II

Question: I never really got the line "it came with a black dude, but he kept getting pulled over". What was so funny?

Piemanmoo

Chosen answer: It's referring to the innate racial prejudice some people have - an inflatable black guy driving a nice car got pulled over, whereas an inflatable white guy had no problems.

Question: I don't get the joke where K pokes his finger inside the alien globe and the little alien guys running away from it screaming, "All is lost." Can anyone tell me the meaning?

Answer: The tiny globe is an entire alien world. His small investigative action threatens to destroy them all.

Phoenix

Question: I never understood the two people on the bikes, you know the people with all the stars. What are they suppose to represent?

Answer: They don't represent anything. Barry Sonnenfeld says in the commentary that he simply likes to use that cycling couple as he thinks that it is a cool visual.

Answer: They are extraterrestrials, the fact they are weird gives it away to K now he has been deneuralized. He started to notice them again as his mind is rebooting.

lionhead

Answer: And apparently they are a couple who actually live in that area of New York. So they may be familiar to some who see them in the movie.
