Martin Lloyd remarks "The real money's in syndication." while he and Jack are being rescued by Teal'c. It is generally known in the television industry that you need at least 100 episodes for a show to be considered seriously for syndication. This was the 100th episode of Stargate SG-1.

The comment by "Colonel Danning" in the Wormhole intro, "Yes, it does say Colonel on my uniform," is a reference to an earlier episode where Jack O'Neill, after being argued with by the rest of SG1, says, "Does it say Colonel ANYWHERE on my uniform?"

Wojciech Jakubowski (Polish underground actor) was actually on his vacation in US, and was invited by his friend to see the set of Stargate SG-1. When Peter DeLuise saw Jakubowski, he was struck by his 'soldierish' look and asked if he wouldn't play a soldier in "The Tomb" episode. Jakubowski agreed and both men liked the co-operation so much, that he played in two more episodes - "Wormhole X-Treme!" and "Proving Ground".

O'Neill claims to be doing a security check because "one of our generals is doing a guest spot on the show". Michael E. Ryan, then Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, did a guest spot in Stargate SG-1: Prodigy (2001).

While talking to the security guard colonel O'neill remarks that he likes her uniform. This appears to be a solid blue version of the uniform O'neill wears on a regular basis.

While getting into the limo, a studio exec comments "You know what this show needs? A sexy female alien." Somewhat prescient, as Claudia Black joins the show three seasons later as... a sexy female alien.

There are many Science-fiction tropes and practical issues based on making a show Modified food to look alien. Aliens speak English. Out of phase characters can pass through walls and can walk on the floors. How silly people look being shot without special effects. Explosions always need to be bigger. Impractical costumes (riding up uncomfortably for the actors). Writers creating a character based on themselves.

Only about half of each show-within-a-show scene was scripted and many of the parody elements were suggested by the cast and crew. The "behind the scenes" part was entirely improvised.

Martin Lloyd yells at the props guy to gets some kiwis and paint them red, which is exactly what was done in a previous episode "Beneath the Surface" where a character is shown eating kiwis painted red.

A shot that didn't make the final cut was Hammond and SG-1 watching the preview of Wormhole X-Treme where all sit watching in silent disbelief, except for Teal'c who bursts out laughing at the sight of Grell.

While discussing camouflaged uniforms, Colonel O'Neill states you Don't want to be a target but there while looking at his chest. With the costume having a cross section in the front and the back having a giant X on the back are both perfect targets for enemies to aim at.
