    • Music: Devil With the Blue Dress On/Good Golly Miss Molly by Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels Tears on My Pillow by Little Anthony and the Imperials

    • Toward the end of the episode, Brandon comes into the Peach Pit to apologize for Nat regarding his behavior at Casino Night. The song in the background playing is Tears on my Pillow. If you listen, the scene runs longer than the song, apparently, because the producers have put it on a loop and the last verse repeats itself.

    • Lar Park Lincoln and Brian Austin Green were both cast members of the long running CBS soap Knots Landing. Lar Park Lincoln played Linda Fairgate (1987, 1989-1991) and Brian Austin Green played Brian Cunningham (1986-1989). Though they never had any scenes together.

    Trivia (1)

    • Brandon keeps talking about how he got in trouble betting on football games. That's not true. His trouble came in basketball. Steve constantly pointed out that it was a sucker's bet, but Brandon took it anyway.
