  • Blanche: I don't think you heard what I said. You are staying here tonight! Lucy: Aunt Blanche, I'm 20 years old. I'll go wherever I please. Come on, Ed. Blanche: You walk out that door, missy, and you can forget about coming back!

  • The background shot during the closing credits features Dorothy, Rose and Blanche standing one behind the other, with Dorothy's hand around Rose's neck after she thinks she's seen the mouse.

  • Hallie Todd, who plays Blanche's young niece, is the same actress who went on to portray the mother in Hilary Duff's breakout show Lizzie McGuire.

Trivia (4)

  • The earrings Lucy is wearing when she returns home from her interview belong to Blanch. We have seen her wear them in several episodes.

  • "Oh, Lord, it's terrible" is how Rose comes off when it comes to Lucy sleeping with a random guy on a first date, but Rose already did something similar in "Rose the Prude" when on a second or third date she did the same thing with Arnie on the boat. There's not much difference between a first and second date.

  • Blanche tells her niece that whenever she dates a guy, it's because she likes him, not because she wants him to like her. However, that's not true. In the Season 1 episode Blanche and the Younger Man, Blanche really went out of her way to impress a gentleman half her age, and she seemed most interested in making herself the type of woman he'd want to date.

  • It is revealed in this episode that Rose is a devoted Miami Vice fan.
