    • The producers originally planned to bring back Joan Collins who appeared in the season 2 episode "My Best Friend's Tush", but when she refused the character of Beverly Leslie was created.

    • This episode was filmed on Tuesday, December 12, 2000 at CBS Studio Center.

    • A few catholic groups protested this episode, due to the fact that openly gay star Ellen DeGeneres was playing a nun. Producers declined to respond, saying "it would only add fuel to a pointless fire."

    Allusions (8)

    • Jack: I finally found my roots Karen. It's like my whole life I've been waiting to exhale. An allusion to the movie Waiting to Exhale, based on the lives of African American women.

    • Karen: Where the devil are my slippers? This is an allusion to the movie My Fair Lady based on the play Pygmalion, which is used a lot in this series. This line is the last line of the movie, when Eliza comes back to Professor Higgins, much like Rosario came back to Karen.

    • Jack: Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go find out what it means to be black - like me. Black Like Me is a novel by John Howard Griffin. Griffin, a priviledged white man, used medications and dye to darken his skin and traveled around the South disguised as an unemployed black man in the late 1950's. The book describes his experiences during the social experiment.

    • Episode Title: This is a reference to the short-lived television series My Mother the Car, which was named the second worst show of all time by TV Guide in 2002.

    • Karen: Aah! Get off me, Tattoo. Aah! Get off of me!
      A funny reference to the character Tattoo on the show Fantasy Island.
