Bad continuity with previous episode. Last time, Becker said he hated winter because everybody wanted flu shots, but now he loves this time of year and giving flu shots. Also, Chris says she just got over the flu, despite being given a flu shot in a joint Linda/Becker effort in the last episode.
In the scene where Becker was talking to Margaret in the restaurant, Becker's glass of water appears full in one camera angle and nearly empty from another angle.
On some reruns the remark "Boy, can that girl play
ping pong" by Nancy Travis is left out.
Linda tells Margaret that she is allergic to cats but in the episode about the alley cat (Saving Harvey Cohen) Linda was very fond of the cat. She even sat in Becker's office with the cat on her lap, without showing any signs of being allergic to cats.
When John asks Ruby to explain why she ran away scared after reading his palm, she said that she saw his watch and remember she had to be at some party. But in that scene where she was reading John's palm (from his right hand), John's watch (on his left wrist) was nowhere in sight.
Jake says that Amanda has been the love of his life "for 2.5 years", but they had only been together 1.5 years by this episode.
We learn Chris was once a travel agent.
Linda has a new shorter haircut in this episode.
We learn Bob's high school nickname is "Barbara."
We learn Bob's middle name is Benito.
In the beginning of the episode, when Becker first enters the diner, he goes to the register to get one of his cigarette's. You see his hands reach for the draw, you hear the bell that rings when the draw is opened. A split second later the camera goes back to a wide shot and the cigarette is already lit and in his hand. It was like the cigarette was already lit, in the draw waiting for him.
When Julie called John's apartment, the answering machine picked up straight with the recording beep. There was no greeting from John or a generic machine greeting before Julie got to record her message.
When this episode aired on Paramount in the UK, Linda's see-through top, revealing her breasts, was covered up with a black box.
While Reggie, Bob and Jake are playing scrabble, Jake puts down the word "quark" which is a group of six elementary particles with charges of a magnitude one-third or two-thirds that of the electron. It is also the name of a character played by Armin Shimerman in the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in which Terry Farrell played Jadzia Dax for 6 years.
When Mr. Pearson asks to use the restroom, the door he goes through has a sign that reads Restrooms. This is actually the women's restroom during most of the series, while the men's restroom is located in the hallway closer to the exam rooms and Becker's office. Only a few episodes in Season 4 have the Women sign replaced with the generic Restrooms sign.
When Becker takes a look through the ceiling panels and he sees the rat, you can see him saying something with no audio. Then the screen goes black and we hear just the audio: "Oh sweet Jesus!" It seems that the audio and video got out of sync.
In the scene where Reggie is telling Becker how she sent the two women to his office, watch what happens in the background as John says "You sent those two women to my office?". Alex Désert breaks character as Jake comes out of the newstand. As Jake walks towards Reggie and John, some guy passes by and Jake just stops and keeps going when the guy is gone, instead of bumping into the guy, which is what you'd expect a blind person to do - especially when walking without his cane.
When the attractive blonde woman tells John about her accident falling off her shoes, John tells her "That's not stupid; accidents happen." However, when Reggie plays the recording from the incident, it has John saying: "That's not stupid at all; accidents happen."
How old is Jake's Nanna?
In this episode Becker say she is 80, but in a couple of episodes of season one (Scriptus Interruptus and Drive They Said) Jake said she was 97. In the sixth season (Spontaneous Combustion) she was still 80!
If Reggie's ornament was one of a kind and hand-painted, how come the store's display tree had one of those?
