    • (Rudy is bothering everyone with her knock knock jokes when Theo enters) Rudy: Theo! Knock knock! Theo: No! Rudy: No who? Theo: No way!!

    Notes (2)

    • The end credits of this episode are somewhat extended. Each musician is individually credited. Also, the ORIGINAL season 2 opening credit music (rarely seen in syndication) is used rather than the usual season 2 closing music.

    • Slide Hampton actually played the trombone part that is heard during the performance.

    Trivia (1)

    • While Cliff and Clair are getting ready to head to the club to hear Russell play, Clair sings a phrase from Phil Phillips' "Sea of Love".
