    Notes (3)

    • The writer's name is mispelled "Allan Jay Zipper" in the credits.

    • The country club scenes were filmed on the front lawn of the the Culver City Studio's main building, "Tara."

    • In this (and a few following) episode, the opening credits are "enlarged".

    Allusions (1)

    • During the montage of Fran at the country club, the song that is playing is "Ascot Gavotte" from the Broadway musical, My Fair Lady. Appropriate, considering Fran is now the wife of a Broadway producer. This is not the first time Fran has been compared to the musical's heroine, Eliza Doolittle, an unrefined flower girl who is introduced into London society as the result of a bet. For the first time the reference was made, see season 1's "My Fair Nanny."
