In the opening scene, when Denise is talking to Stevie, there's a gold and white sofa in the lobby and a bulletin board on the wall near the stairs. In a later scene, when Denise is talking to Maggie in the lobby, there is now a green sofa and a picture on the wall near the stairs. The gold sofa and bulletin board return for the next episode, Porky de Bergerac.
Although Denise is given a job in the cafeteria with Jaleesa, we never see Denise working in any other episodes. Since everyone eats at the Pit instead of the cafeteria, Jaleesa eventually works in the library.
Dwayne: How is it that we always keep bumping into each other?
Denise: Because I'm always late and you're always in the way.
Dr. Harris: If I recall, this isn't the first time your checks have bounced since you started at Hillman.
Denise: Yeah, I've had two or three...
Dr. Harris: Try four or five.
Denise: Has it been that many?
Dr. Harris: Bounce city.
Cooper: Excuse me, Dr. Harris, but aren't five chapters and a paper a lot of homework?
Dr. Harris: That's a good question. The answer is "Yes."
Jaleesa: (referring to Maggie moving in) I feel sorry for her.
Jaleesa: Because she'll have to get used to living with you.
Todd Hollowell previously guest-starred in the pilot of The Cosby Show where he played Denise's date.
In this episode we learn that Jaleesa has eight sisters and brothers and she grew up in Camden, New Jersey.
Bill Cosby and Keshia Knight Pulliam cross over in their roles from The Cosby Show for the first time.
