Notes: A number of production VIF's appear in cameos at the end of the show. As the camera pulls back, we see Lon Diamond and Tom Straw do a 'cool-handshake' (they're both sitting in chairs with names on them.) Bryan Spicer appears (in the shirt with 'Director' on the back) but we only see him from behind. Clyde Phillips appears right at the end with a clapboard and says "End marker" just before the final mosaic out.
