The last episode to be produced in black and white, Episode Sixteen also marked the first time a scene was fully completed and then excised. The frame was to have taken place between the third to last and the penultimate frame, in which Elliot remarks, "We should have hired that guy from the van down by the river." Though considered humorous by all involved, the joke was sadly too far ahead of its time, being that the Snail Factory takes place in 1941 and Saturday Night Live would not air for another 30 some years. The episode was also the stage for a mishap in Lemmy the Lemon's stunt, in which the veteran character actor jumped one take too soon before the air cushion was set up. Efengi's unscripted remark made the cut however, and nobody missed Lemmy so it all turned out for the best.
