    • NOTES (6)

      • The episode won 3 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Choreography, Outstanding Costume Design for a Series and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy Series or a Special.

      • The song Harry sings in his dream sequence is "Life Has Been Good To Me" from Randy Newman's musical "Faust".

      • In Latin America, this episode's title was translated into "Pesadilla En La Calle Dick: Segunda Parte", which was an exact translation.

      • An alternate ending to this episode appears on the Season 2 DVD boxset.

      • Just like part one of this episode, when originally aired there were a few extended scenes and some extra lines.
        These scenes included August and Tommy talking in the library before the teacher walks in, (sedated) Dick and Sally talking to some Jehovas Witnesses, Don and Sally talking about the chance that Sally might be leaving soon, and Harry's dance number is longer, beginning with a Harry falling down some stairs before emerging from the cement mixer, and ending with Harry and the girl walking out from behind the piano and walking to the back of the set.

        These scenes are present on the VHS edition of A Nightmare on Dick Street (which included the 3D glasses) as well as the Region 2 second season DVD set.
