Nancy Marchand who guests in this episode as Frasier's mother would later come to popularity and fame as Livia Soprano, Tony Sopranos mother on the smash hit HBO series, "The Sopranos."
Maybe Sam's just too good to need aphrodisiacs :-) Another thought is that he didn't need them at first but he has begun to, as part of his addiction to s*x (which is revealed in a later season.) Sort of like a person who keeps needing a bigger high.
At the beginning of the episode, Sam seems eager to know what the aphrodisiac is that's listed in Carla's magazine. Wouldn't Sammy(the master of love) know every aphrodisiac in the book?
Cliff mentions to Norm for the first time in the series that he still lives at home with his mother.
In this episode, several members of the gang pick on Cliff, mocking his lack of female companionship, and one even asking if anyone even seen Cliff with a woman (Norm and Sam defend Cliff). The gang seem to forget the previous season's episode Little Sister Don't Cha, when Cliff dated Carla's sister. Their relationship wasn't a secret.
Frasier said he wasn't DIANE'S doctor.
Tim Cunningham (Tim) also played Chuck in "Coach's Daughter", and Greg in "Fortune And Men's Weight" and "Where There's A Will".
Ted Danson is also cracking up at the second shout out of "Sinatra" by Al. He tries to hide it while drinking from his coffee cup.
Al Rosen is visibly cracking up at his own joke after the second "Sinatra!"
When Norm approaches Lewis a camera is clearly visible over his right sholder
Sam says that he's never had a woman as just a friend. That's not true, as Carla is a friend, and they've never been together romantically.
Sam tends to overlook Carla quite a bit. Besides, she started out as a co-worker, not a woman he met socially.
When Cliff hears that Norm has taken his date to see 'Gandhi', he praises it as "a fine piece of cinematic art".
John Ratzenberger, who plays Cliff, also has a small role in 'Gandhi' as an American Lieutenant.
Coach has blackouts - why wouldn't he make mistakes like forgetting peoples names?
During the scene where Diane, Sam, Coach, Norm and Cliff were talking about calling Carla to make sure everything was ok, Sam (Ted Danson) picks up the phone. You can clearly see a white bandage wrapped around his right forearm. If you look closely, you can also see another white bandage that is up near his elbow. (Same arm.) It was never explained in the episode what happened.
Wasn't Diane suppose to leave with Sam's brother in the previous episode? So why didn't he come back for her or why didn't she tell him that she wasn't going with him?
The teaser scene made such an impact that the writers of Frasier re-enacted it 20 years later in The Harrassed Frasier, Episode 10-12 (albeit with a different punch line). Sam interrupts a no-holds-barred argument with Diane to ask, "Are you as turned on as I am?" Diane replies "More."
Twenty years later, Frasier attempts that line in an argument with Julia, and she replies quizzically, "No."
This episode has never been aired, nor does it appear in the Season 1 DVD set.
goof: During the Sam and Carla discussion when Derek is in the other room with all the patrons, the positioning of the beer bottles on the tray on the bar changes between shots.
Diane says her father has been dead for 10 years, yet in "Coach's Daughter" she refers to him in the present tense.
