    • Henry Winkler's contract was to expire at the conclusion of the fifth season. The producers offered him $80,000 per episode plus profits, so he stayed on.

    • The court case in this episode is very similar to the case in episode 4 of another Garry Marshall series, The Odd Couple, in which one person in the jury doesn't want to go along with everyone else just to get home early. Barney Martin even guest stars as a juror in both episodes.
