As far as my information goes, Kevin and Scott asked the studio for an orang-outang when filming Mallrats because they wanted to see how much the studio would give them. Kevin wrote the ending of Mallrats to show Jay and Silent Bob walking into the distance with Suzanne (the orang-outang) and left it at that. I think one of the Weinsteins read the script and said something along the lines of "Is that all she does? Can't you develop the monkey in some way?", meaning he wanted Kevin to give Suzanne more personality or screentime or something like that.
Hence, "Developing The Monkey" and all monkey variations thereof.
"Oi - Pigsy!"
