Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Will Forte mapped out the entire first season before production began except for the final shot of Jason Sudekis which wasn't planned until episode 5 or 6
In season two, Will Ferrell guest stars as Gordon. We later find out that Gail (Mary Steenburgen) dated him in the show. Steenburgen played Ferrell's step mom in the movie Elf (2003) as well as mother in the movie Step Brothers (2008).
There's been a recurring gag ever since the beginning of season 2, where a famous guest star is brought in and is killed off almost immediately with only one line of dialogue: -Will Ferrell as Gordon (season 2, episode 2) dies from a heart attack after being scared by Carol. -Jon Hamm as Daryl (season 3, episode 1) is shot and killed by Melissa. -Jack Black as Rear Admiral Roy Billups (season 3, episode 1) is shot and killed by Pat.
