  • Notes

    • Nick At Nite made a weird edit to this episode after its first few airings. They remove the ending punchline of the story! Initial airings showed the ending "act," before the closing credits, with the hole in the wall of Toody's home, where Karpathia had been recreating "Lower Manhattan At Sunset From The New Jersey Side" after Sylvia had thrown it away. Later airings cut to the end credits after the act fade out where Karpathia is painting on the wall.

    • Severn Darden was one of the founding members of the Second City comedy group.
