    • Warren: And, uh, you know, I wrote a bunch of jokes, but, uh, I'm not, uh... well, the thing is, I, uh, I wasn't there when Rochie died, and I hadn't seen that tape before. And, frankly, it, uh, moved me. I can think of nothing more beautiful than to depart this earth doing what it is that you love. And, in Rochester's case, performing, dancing under those bright lights, a hoofing cowboy dying with his boots on. So I salute you, Rochester, my rival, my friend, for going out in a grand, theatrical style. And I tip my hat to Greg. Son, you cared enough to give Rochester the greatest gift that a man can receive. A smile to shape his very last breath. So, to Rochester.

    • Gil: But, you know, uh, Rochie was a, uh, bit of a health nut. He always stuck to a balanced diet. A drink in each hand. (cricket chirping) Gil: 'Cause the diet was... balanced. Okay, I put together a little video tribute. 'Cause it's not the first time Rochester's died on stage. (cricket chirping) Cricket: Yo, back off. The guy's funny.

    • Alison: And as a network executive, Rochie was always accusing me of being stiff and cold. Right back at ya, Rochie! (rim shot)

    • Dottie: And as a beloved television star, Rochester touched millions of adoring fans. Fortunately, only six of them pressed charges. (rim shot)

    • Jack: You know, we were all, uh, shocked when, uh, Rochie had a heart attack. Smart money was on liver failure. (rim shot)

    Notes (8)

    • The closing credits note that the mural in Harry's Bar was done by Al Hirschfeld of The Margo Feiden Galleries Ltd.

    • The outtakes tag for this episode was not broadcast by FOX. It was replaced with a promo. In this show, four outtakes are shown during the closing credits: three different takes of the scene where Rochester gets soaked after a passing car drives over a puddle, and a deleted joke from Gil's memorial routine ("he's the kind of man who'd give you the sleeves off his vest").

    • The music to the song in Greg's nightmare was written by Bill Freiberger's wife.

    • This, "Sock Like Me," and "Dottie Heat" are the only episodes in which Greg does not offer opening and closing narration. Perhaps they were lopped off.

    • The same day this was broadcast, Dan Milano was a guest on Howard Stern's radio show, with Greg the Bunny on (in?) hand. After Howard's staff and assorted callers kicked Greg around, Howard convinced Milano to come out and finish up the interview as himself. Howard's staff and assorted callers then proceeded to kick Milano around. Meanwhile, Robin commented on how dead Greg looked when lying in Milano's lap. The segment was televised on E! on May 13, where the entire Greg illusion was shattered early on when the producers decided to focus the camera on Milano setting things up from behind a wall. As badly as Stern and company treated Dan and Greg that day, it was still probably better than FOX treated them.

    Allusions (4)

    • Visual: Jimmy's shirt. During several scenes Jimmy is wearing a shirt that says 'Ed, Edd, n' Eddy'. This is the name of a show that airs on Cartoon Network.

    • Greg: Like an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. Cats and The Phantom of the Opera are just a few musicals that the successful Andrew Lloyd Weber has composed.

    • Rochester: I'm like John Travolta in between Grease and Pulp Fiction. John Travolta's acting career hit a dry spell after he stared in the successful musical Grease (1978), not finding any success until the 1994 Quentin Tarantino masterpiece Pulp Fiction.

    • The title of this episode alludes to the 1971 novel from John Updike that goes by the same name. It was part two of a four part series that followed the life of Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom.
