Dave Foley originally had a much larger role in the writing of the script and in the film, with more characters and scenes. But he quit the troupe in the middle of the writing, due to his dissatisfaction with the script and the internal feuds, was cast in NewsRadio (1995) and was featured in the movie due to contractual reasons. After years of denial from the five Kids, Dave Foley came clear about his involvement with "Brain Candy" in an interview with "The Onion A.V. Club" in 2004.
You go over there and Fuck 'em. We'll stay here and Masturbate. Go, go, go!
When the two workmen roll the carpet into a tube, it is obviously lopsided, accumulating on the left hand side of the screen. In the next shot, the carpet is perfectly even.

The Kids in the Hall originally filmed a different ending to the film where Dr. Chris Cooper (played by 'Kevin McDonald') fell into a coma and dreamed the ending. Apparently this included "an elaborate parade, complete with Coma Queens, candy-coloured floats, and a grinning mob", but unfortunately it scored poorly with test audiences. Paramount and the Kids re-evaluated the ending and agreed it lacked dramatic-weight and was "too scattered". They re-shot the ending in January.
