Thanks to RedtigersharkThe baggage handlers were supposed to be the Mackenzie brothers (Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas). When they fell through Aykroyd or Murphy recommended Davis and Franken from their SNL days.
Thanks to Mick JohnsonThe scene involving Valentine and Winthorpe when they come face to face in the back of taxi/limo was filmed outside the hall in Philadelphia where the declaration of indepenence was signed, the road was blocked off in 2004 when I visited, its a great place.

Thanks to ANDREWhen Billy Ray Valentine arrives at Duke and Duke on his first day of work. Folsey greets him just as he did Winthorpe in the beginning and asks for his Coat, scarf, and gloves. All of the same people say good morning to Valentine that said good morning to Winthorpe.
