    • During the pool table scene near the end of the episode, a boom mike comes down too far over the table and is clearly visible for several moments before being hoisted back up.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Diane: Carla, I don't think you should be engaging in strenuous activity when you're with child.
      Carla: If I didn't do things with child I'd never leave the house. The only thing I ever did without child resulted in one.

    • [after beating the Playboy girls in the softball game, Sam is in the pool room]
      Diane: Sam, you are an attractive man. You have many friends, you have a lot going for you; but, you have one miserable character flaw.
      Sam: Gee, I wonder if I could coax you into telling me what that is.

    • [the men in the bar are ogling the Playboy girls]
      Diane: Oh, this is disgusting. What kind of culture do I live in where they are the ideal woman?
      Coach: Well, gee, Diane. You've gotta admit: they are beautiful.
      Diane: Coach, take away all their make-up, all their expensive haircuts and those bodies... and what have you got?
      Carla: You.

    • [Norm enters the bar]
      Coach: What'll it be, Normy?
      Norm: Just the usual, Coach. I'll have a trough of beer and a snorkel.

    • Diane: Sam, you wanted to beat them more than you wanted to bed them.
      Sam: [realizing] Oh my God. I AM sick!

  • NOTES (1)

    • David Paymer, who plays the reporter, later reprises the character in the "Strange Bedfellows" episodes at the end of Season 4, only there he also has a name, Phil Schumacher.
