    • Paul: You think that actually could have done some damage? Ira: (smirks) Well, Paulie, it couldn't have helped. Paul: Do me a favor, Don't mention this to Jamie. Ira: Why? Paul: Because she'll get mad. Ira: Why? That you took a hard one in the grapes? Paul: Believe me, if we can't have a kid because I was crowding the plate... Ira: Paulie, but you were protecting the strike zone! Paul: Uh, well, just don't tell her!

    Trivia (2)

    • "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Mad About You" are in a very long chain of cross-overs, so their universes are the same. However, Brad Garrett's characters in both shows are different.

    • When Paul goes to the refrigerator to get a soda, the line is, "Hospitals, as you know, are for sick people, and this is the act of a healthy, healthy man." But his lips don't match those words. Also, there is a problem with the plot--if Paul had already made a "sample" he couldn't do the test again at the hospital on the same day.
