Showgirl Deloris Van Cartier returns as Sister Mary Clarence to teach music to a group of Catholic students whose run-down school is slated for closure.
When Father Wolfgang (Thomas Gottschalk) offers Deloris (Sister Mary Clarence) (Whoopi Goldberg) the German sausage, she says, "Oh no, I couldn't, Jenny Craig". This is a reference to the home delivery diet plan company.
Sister Mary Clarence:
We are family / I got all my sisters with me / We are family / Get up everybody and sing!
When Rita is laying on her bed listening to her Walkman, learning the music (just before her Mom arrives home and tells her she can't be in the choir or competition), Rita is looking at a page full of text. Then, just after, it's a page of music instead.
The cast sings and dances to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough".
On some TV broadcasts, a small cut is made during the first musical number to obscure an obscenity, when a character proclaims, "I was a ho" during the number.
