    • Fran: Thank God I got a system. Niles: No, you don't. I'm tapped. Fran: Not you. I have to pay my American Express because if I buy a piece of gum, the S.WA.T. team will storm the building. Meanwhile, I paid my MasterCard with my Discover Card, my Discover card with my Optima Card, My Optima Card with my city trust Visa. Niles: But doesn't that leave a very high dollars on your visa? Fran: Exactly! And that's why they gave me an Expresso Machine which I sell to pay my American Express. Thank you!

    Notes (2)

    • The scene where Fran has to shave Maxwell resulted in the longest ever laugh from the studio audience throughout the series.

    • At the hospital, while all the girls are reading teen magazines, Fran is reading Longevity. Coincidentally or not, Fran Drescher was on the cover of that same magazine the months this episode aired.

    Trivia (1)

    • In the scene where Fran is putting the shaving cream on Mr. Sheffield, you can see Charles trying very hard not to laugh. Even though his face is covered with shaving cream you can see him smiling (or trying not to laugh).
