Revealing mistake: When Bluto is watching the sorority girls have their pillow fight and he falls down with the ladder, you can see him land on a grass mat that is cut into the lawn. It's funny because you can see the grass push in. (00:40:00)
Continuity mistake: When the Fraternity house is being taken down, the Greek letters switch places. (01:06:05 - 01:06:55)
Trivia: Faber college, where the movie takes place, was actually the University of Oregon in Eugene.
Dean Wormer: Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.
Katy: Boon, I think I'm in love with a retard.
Boon: Is he bigger than me?
Hoover: They confiscated everything, even the stuff we didn't steal!
Question: Kent Dorfman is a member of Delta fraternity, so why, later in the movie, is he seen in a military uniform with the Omega fraternity?
Question: Near the end, when Dean Wormer and Mayor DePasto are in the grandstand, officially launching the parade, there is an elderly gentleman in the background (also in the grandstand, about 2 levels up, on the left side of the screen) who is making odd, excited gestures and comical facial expressions. His appearance and odd mannerisms are so striking that he draws my attention away from the dean and the mayor every time that I've seen this film, and that's a lot of times. Surely, director John Landis must have been aware of the gentleman and his antics in the background through multiple takes, so it would seem Landis intended the peculiar distraction. Who was that gentleman, and was there any significance to his appearing in the scene?
