This is the first mention in the series of Gerard the butler, who would become a recurring regular the following season. When Alexis refers to Joseph as the butler, he reminds her that he is the major domo and that Gerard and Maesfield are the butlers.
In this episode, Fallon tells Alexis that she was named after Blake's mother. However, later in the series, Blake's mother's name has been changed to "Ellen Carrington."
This is the first appearance of Sam Dexter, Dex's father, on the series. The character of Dex would later appear the following season.
When Sammy Jo reads the headline in the National Enquirer that Steven is alive, there is a large photo of the cast of Dallas below the headline. This may have been an in-joke, as Dallas was a rival prime time soap opera to Dynasty in the ratings and aired on an opposite network.
This is the first episode to mention Sam Dexter, Dex's father. The character of Dex would later appear the following season.
The exterior hotel shots in which Blake & Krystal are supposed to be staying at in Acapulco are actually that of the famous Sands hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
This is the episode in which the hotel 'La Mirada' changes its name into 'La Mirage', irritating native speakers of French everywhere. 'Mirage' is a masculine word in French, and so it should be 'Le Mirage'.
It is never mentioned that Cecil has another brother and sister (Jason and Connie), who will later appear on the spinoff "The Colbys".
