    Trivia (1)

    • A few things have changed with this episode. Nell's mother is now played by Rosetta LeNoire, her name is Maybelle instead of Emma. Her sister is now played by Lynne Thigpen, and named Loretta, rather than Marie. The house also looks different inside than on the first season episode "Nell Goes Home". Also, Nell's mother acts like she's never seen Joey before, but in the previous season, Nell's mother (played by Hilda Haynes) visited the Kanisky household on the episode "A Kanisky Christmas" and most likely would have seen Joey then.
