    Trivia (3)

    • In George's dream, he is said to have passed away and is being remembered by his friends and family. In real life though, Sherman Hemsley (George) outlived every main cast member appearing in this episode except for Marla Gibbs (Florence).

    • George dreams the President of the United States in 1996 was Amy Carter, but in reality the President of the United States was actually Bill Clinton who ran for 2 terms.

    • In real life, cast member Roxie Roker (Helen Willis) did not live until 1996. Sadly, she passed away from breast cancer on December 2, 1995.

    Allusions (1)

    • In his dream flash forward to 1996, George discovers that the U.S. President that year is Amy Carter (the daughter of Jimmy Carter, who was president at the time of this episode's filming). However, Amy Carter would have only been 29 years old in 1996 and not yet constitutionally eligible to run for President. George must have dreamed a constitutional amendment also!!!!
