Trivia (3)

  • The "Puffy Shirt" first worn by Jerry Seinfeld in the 1993 Seinfeld episode of the same name, and again by David Hyde Pierce in the Season One Frasier episode, "A Midwinter Night's Dream", can be seen in this episode worn by the guy that asks Roz if she's here alone.

  • When Daphne is speaking to Niles during the party, she reaches to her right eye with a tissue. However, when the camera changes, she is reaching for her left eye.

  • During the period where Frasier is responding to the allegation that he is the father of Roz's baby, you can see Peri Gilpin begin to enter and then step back and hide for a moment before making her real entrance. Some might argue that the character Roz hesitated when realizing that everyone was discussing her, but it is such a background event that it is unlikely. What's more, nothing was being said at that moment that referred to her, specifically. Timing her entrance was important since her line must correspond to Frasier saying that they didn't even know for certain if there was a baby, in response to which she appears and says "We do now".

Allusions (1)

  • When Roz comes to the party she is asked which literary figure she came dressed as; she responds by saying, "I'm O, from the 'Story of O'". 'Story of O' (Histoire d'O) is a French erotic novel written by Anne Desclos under a pen name, Pauline Réage. It tells the story of a woman who undergoes dominance and submission training to become a slave, which accounts for Roz' suggestive outfit.
