Quotes (3)

  • Will (telling a scary story to a group of kids): This creature is known as the Bel-Air beast. And oh my goodness, there he is! (the kids turn to see Carlton and run away)

  • Ashley: I can't believe Carlton went to bed early. Will: Ashley, if you found out the only person in the world who would go out with was mentally deranged, you'd go to bed too.

  • Hilary: Daddy, this is a Halloween party and you don't have a costume on. Philip: I'm dressed as Comfortable Man. He has super-human bill paying powers, so he can dress however he wants.

Notes (3)

  • In syndication, part 2 uses the short opening.

  • This is one of the few episodes to feature the opening immediately into the episode with no prologue scene.

  • On the Season 1 DVD set, several scenes from this episode are in a different sequence on the DVD version than they are in the syndicated version, e.g., some scenes that are aired in part 1 appear in what is part 2 in the syndicated version.

Trivia (2)

  • One of the trick or treaters is played by Anastasia Ali who is Tatyana Ali's younger sister.

  • Goof: Geoffrey introduces the party to Cinderella. When the girl is talking to Will, Some Day My Prince Will Come is playing in the background. This is an error because that song is from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs not Cinderella.

Allusions (2)

  • In one of Carlton's fantasy flashbacks, Will and his date are being hassled by thugs, so he comes to the rescue in a pin-striped suit and moonwalks after the fight scene to music that is similar to Smooth Criminal. This is an allusion to Michael Jackson's 1988 Moonwalker video.

  • The waitress dressed up as Cinderella speaks of two ugly step-sisters and other characters, which are found in Charles Perrault's 1697 version of the fairy tale entitled Cinderella.
