    • Paul: How do you think that I felt? Having to watch the two of you perform the entire score of The Music Man? And I'll tell you something, babe. 'Seventy-Six Trombones' was not written for the cello! Jamie: Says who? Paul: The title.

    • Conductor: Have a Hap-py Ho-li-day! Paul: Easy for you to say. Conductor: It's my jo-b...

    • Paul: What was that? Jamie: Nothing. Just told her we needed some private time since we were going up for your mother's funeral. Always works. Paul: Why is it my mother? Jamie: I don't know, I wanted the leg-room, I had to kill somebody, she came to mind.

    Notes (3)

    • Jamie runs into Hap Evans, who she was engaged to for a couple of months while in high school; she had broken the engagement at the Thanksgiving Dance of 1979 when she caught Hap flirting with Marcia Dixon.

    • Jamie is seen reading "Surrender the Pink" by Carrie Fisher.

    • A Cello solo of 76 Trombones plays over the end credits rather than the usual music - a tribute to the fact that it is revealed in this episode that Jamie used to play the cello (and is considering playing again).

    Trivia (1)

    • The Devanow's destination of New Rochelle, New York is the same suburb where the Petries lived in The Dick van Dyke Show.
