Mallrats Easter Egg - Clerks...Eww

During the movie TS and Brodie go to the Flea Market which they refer to as the "Dirt Mall"
While Brodie is searching through comics, watch TS. He picks up a hat and looks at it in digust. Can you read that hat?? It says CLERKS.

For all of those who are not familiar with the New Jersey Trilogy "Clerks" was Kevin Smith's first major creation.

Anyone interested in the actual time-line of events should take a look at the booklet which comes with the "Chasing Amy" dvd. In it is a detailed map compiled by Kevin Smith and the View Askew crew, explaining the interconnections between the movies. On the map contains the names of all or most of the characters in Mallrats, Clerks and Chasing Amy,what high school in the Tri-Town area these characters went to and what year they graduated, where certain characters grew up(if not in the Tri-Town area), and of course the much argued time-line of events which is as follows.... Julie Dwyer dies in the YMCA pool sometime around midnight Thursday, "Mallrats" takes place on Friday, "Clerks" is on Saturday, and "Chasing Amy" is two years after the events in "Clerks." The map is pretty cool and explains it all so I suggest picking up a copy.

Actually, they did leave for Shermer, IL right after Chasing Amy, but you have to pay close attention to catch it. In the end of Chasing Amy they collect the money and head out to collect another envelope, but in Dogma, when Bethany takes J and Silent Bob for breakfast, J states that they "Collected some money they were owed and caught a bus."

In the New Jersey Trilogy Dogma was origionaly going to before Mallrats. One example of this is in mallrats the mention being too old for snoochie poochies and how its childish but in dogma the say it quite a few times

If you notice in Chasing Amy (the one before Dogma) in the scene with Jay, Silent Bob and Holden in the diner, Jay has the bus tickets for Sherman in his top pocket. Mallrats is then clearly before both Chasing Amy and Dogma. When Jay talks about how Snootchie Bootchies is childish that is actually in Chasing Amy. And when they first come into the diner Holden asks them if they are "still hanging out at the mall", an obvious reference to Mallrats.

If anyone is interested in the New Jersey Trilogy you should really visit viewaskew.com. You'll find that they aren't all on the "same plane" of existance. Also "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" characters from most (if not all) Kevin Smith's movies will be present. Even actors with dual roles, for example Jason Lee as both Banky and Brodie.

Alrighty, I've been through the View Askew/News Askew site a thousand times. The dish is Dogma (the script/idea) was created right after Clerks, and was supposed to come second, but the studio offered Kevin a bunch of cash to make Mallrats, so he did. The ~official~ order of the movies was as they were released: Clerks, 'Rats, Amy, Dogma. For more info on the ~exact~ time line, check out History Askew http://homepages.infoseek.com/~crewe1/indexaskew.htm.

If any of you have any questions, read the trade paperbacks "Chasing Dogma" and "Clerks: The Comic Books." CHASING DOGMA explains what happens between CHASING AMY and DOGMA. It's an interesting read, I suggest you try it.

Actually this is the time-line that the movies use not the order they came out in. Mallrats happens first, Clerks is a day after, Chasing Amy is 2 years later, and Dogma is after Chasing Amy. Think about it. In Mallrats the fat chick dies in the pool the day before and in Clerks they go to her funeral. Dogma being after Chasing Amy is too easy to figure out. This is from the View Askew website.

I haven't read all the comments but everyone who says Dogma isn't part of the New Jersey trilogy is mistaken. In fact there was a book called Chasing Dogma that links the film Chasing Amy to Dogma. Oh and there is no Clerks 2 but there was gonna be. The order of the films is: "Clerks" "Mallrats" "Chasing Amy" "Dogma" and soon "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back". And as I mentioned earlyer Chasing Dogma links Chasing Amy and Dogma. In fact how can Dogma not be part of the New Jersey trilogy, I mean how many times do they mention it? How long are they there or talking about being there? Tut tut...

Ok here is the definite series of events in the view askew universe in their timeline 1. Mallrats Occurs 2. Clerks Occurs 3. Chasing Amy Occurs 4. Dogma Occurs 5. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back Occur (note, the Clerks Cartoon is not a real part of the trilogy although there are live intros that Jay And Bob stay in character and talk about the money made from the cartoon, get the Clerks Uncensored DVD to see what I mean) And they are making another Askewniverse movie, but it's not live action, On Smith's message board and in the commentary of the Clerks Uncensored DVD he states they are working on an ANIMATED Clerks Movie. Right now the working title for this movie is called CLERKS: Sell Out. The plot revolves around Dante And Randal making a black and white movie about their lives at the Quick Stop, poking fun at the Clerks movie. All the voices will be by their live action counter parts.

At the end of Chasing Amy, Jay and Bob decide to go find Shermer, Il, the town featured in all of the John Hughes films. They have a series of adventures along the way, all detailed in the comics "Chasing Dogma", some of which actually ended up being used in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. They discover, of course, that the town doesn't exist, but right after that they meet Bethany. In Dogma, if I remember correctly, Jay and Bob have just decided to return home to Jersey, and Bethany goes along with them. Seriously though, there's a lot of deviation in character between the films, and each film sort of has its own 'spin'. Mallrats is kind of 'teen movie', Dogma has a lot more suspension of disbelief, Strike Back is crazy over-the-top, etc. So regardless of how the movies are linked story-wise, they're all very independent of each other.

In fact, it IS a trilogy, the New Jersey Trilogy. Since Dogma did not take place there, whereas the other three were fully based on the places, and people of New Jersey.

Sorry TGTick, but I believe you're wrong. Dogma took place right after Chasing Amy. Jay and Bob left at the end of Chasing Amy trying to find Shermer,Il and ended up with the people in Dogma.

Jay and Bob don't leave for Shermer, IL in Chasing Amy. When they leave the diner they go to pick up another envelope of cash.

I can't believe you. this is a disgrace for someone to tell me that Dogma isnt a new jersey movie. in the beginning of the movie it specifically states the town asbury park(in fact the exact words on the screen were ASBURY PARK, NEW JERSEY.) I have been to both the church and quick stop and i live two towns over from Red Bank NEW JERSEY if i'm not mistaken. Snootchie Bootchie TrishTheDish

tH3_JuDg3, Yes Dogma is part of the series, BUT NOT part of the trilogy because a trilogy is a series of three NOT four movies.

Has anyone else noticed that "Gill" Hicks of Mallrats and "Dante" Hicks of Clerks are actually the same person; kinda interesting in the timeline of things.

It's not a trio, Dogma was the fourth and soon Clerks 2 is gonna be the fifth.

now, if "Dogma" was the fourth, what's the third? "Clerks" was the first, "mallrats" the second, but have I missed a film? I think your mistaken
