At the time of this episode, Wade Boggs was a real-life player for the Boston Red Sox and had led the American League in batting average the previous season.
Sam is making martinis for Frasier. As they're talking, the large martini glass is empty. And all of a suddon, it is full.
Diane is mentioned by Sam in this episode. He lends Woody some fake eyeballs so that he looks awake whilst he sleeps through the symphony, and Sam says that the eyeballs were useful during a lot of pillow-talk with Diane.
Carla took the bus. Heck, Loretta and Nick took the bus from New Jersey to Cheers for the dance contest.
In an earlier episode, Carla took a trip to Graceland. Either the thought of "seeing" Elvis was enough to overcome her fear of flying, or she took a rather long bus trip from Boston to Memphis.
Frasier talks about how he feels he isn't ready for marriage but he was married previously to Nanette Gooseman so wouldn't he be experienced in marriage already?
Sam tells Woody about the raucous nature of a city stag party and how they are different to Indiana parties, but Woody was present at Sam's stag night, so he would already know.
In this episode, Frasier states that he loves tassels but in the Frasier episode, "My Coffee With Niles," he claims that he hates them.
Rhea Perlman (Carla) only appears in the first scene of this episode, before the opening credits.
During the "It's a Wonderful Life" scene as Norm turns back to the bar talking about his days as an accountant, his beer switches hands between camera shots.
In the shot where Woody says,"I don't think her intentions are honorable", you can clearly see stage lights at the top of the screen.
Beer bottles in motion-
Watch the location of the three beer bottles on the TV tray next to Cliff in the last scene. They move magically from the tray to the floor and back again - TWICE!
Goof - When Rebecca gives Norm a "beer on the house," Same puts a beer in front of Norm. The scene cuts to Carla then back to Norm and Sam. The beer, as well as a bowl of nuts, are seen in front of Norm. The scene then cuts to a shot of just Norm and there is no beer and no bowl in front of him. The next scene is Sam giving Norm his beer.
When Rebecca and Sam are talking, Sam mentions his brother Derek and all about him being an international lawyer and owning his own plane. We were of course first introduced to Derek in Showdown Part 1, when he almost took Diane away from the bar but she turned him down for Sam.
Although Eddie's full name is pronounced Edward Raymond LeBec in this episode, in at least two episodes, especially the one where Eddie died, his name is Guy (pronounced Gee) Edward LeBec
Eddie LeBec's full birth name is revealed to be Edward Raymond LeBec.
Carla's full birth name is revealed to be Carla Maria Victoria Angelina Theresa Apollonia Luzupone.
It is revealed that Carla's having twins.
The news anchor's name was Joanne but, toward the end of the episode, in the final commentary before Sam is fired, when the puppet "Little Sam" tosses it back to the anchor, it sounds as if Sam says "Diane." If so, an obvious slip after 5 years of saying Diane.
