  • 'Skud' is played by Troy Fromin, who also played "Ox" in several episodes. While Ox is large and well-meaning, if a bit dim, Skud is an aggressive biker type with a shaved head who smokes cigarettes in the school bathroom.


  • In the final scene, the gang is recording the end of the commercial. Zack's point at the camera is not in sync with the other two. A few moments later, when they look at the tape, all three points are in sync.
