With only the plan of moving in together after high school, two unusually devious friends seek direction in life. As a mere gag, they respond to a man's newspaper ad for a date, only to find it will greatly complicate their lives.
Enid Coleslaw, the main character's name, is an anagram of the film and comic book's author, Daniel Clowes.
Enid: Just stopping by to say "hi".
Enid: This is my friend, Seymour.
Enid: OK. Well, we'll see you later Josh.
Sidewinder Boss: Josh, what you goddamn doing? Clean up that fucking mess! Jesus!
When the girls are sitting in the '50s diner for the first time, a pizza on the table in front of Rebecca appears and disappears repeatedly between shots.
After all the credits roll, there's another take of the scene where Seymour (Steve Buscemi) gets attacked by Doug in the minimart. Only this time, Buscemi's characer easily wins the fight, choking Doug with his own weapon, and stomps out triumphantly. He finishes with a bunch of Mr. Pink type dialogue.
