In "The Wedding (2)" it is Debra who introduces Father Hubley to Ray. However in this episode, it appears Father Hubley is the family priest of the Barone family (and has been for a long time), and this time, it is Debra who is introduced to Father Hubley by Marie.
Marie says that she would never deny her kids water and Frank replies by saying that that would explain Robert's bedwetting problem. However, Robert's bedwetting problem has already been exposed as a prank perpetrated on Robert by Ray much earlier.
At the end of the episode, Ray and Debra watch from the doorway as their kids play. At one point, the twins tackle Ally to the ground, to which she says "Get off of me!" and dissolves into a fit of laughter. Then the camera points to Ray and Debra for about 15 seconds as their children continue with their roughhousing. After a while, Ray puts his arm around Debra, and just at that moment, we hear Ally yelling "Get off of me!" and laughing hysterically, the dialogue duplicated.
Ray and Robert claim that Frank never gave them the sex talk. In "The Ball", however, Ray is rather annoyed that his parents told him the truth about Santa Claus only when he was 14, because Frank wanted to cover sex and Santa at the same time.
Frank claims "Marie knows she's in the pain in the ass." In many other episodes however, Marie seems completely clueless as to what she did wrong. Of course, there is the possibility that Frank and Marie were just lying, just like Ray and Debra.
This was one of two episode submissions that won Brad Garrett his first Emmy for Everybody Loves Raymond. The other was "Raybert."
This was one of two episode submissions that won Doris Roberts her 2nd consecutive Emmy for Everybody Loves Raymond. The other was "Marie's Sculpture."
Alexandra Romano, who plays Ray's daughter Ally's best friend, is Ray Romano's daughter.
Marie mentions in this episode that Robert never attended college, but how is that possible if he is a New York cop?
The adults all dance to "Jungle Love" at the end of the episode. This is the very same music used in the opening credits for the following year, which was Season 7.
In the syndicated version, the episode starts out with an outside shot of Ray's house. But then it goes straight to a scene in Marie's kitchen.
Debra says she used to read Ray's column a lot when they were dating, even though in "The Wedding (1)", Ray used his very first column to ask Debra to marry him.
Robert says that he used to have a slight bed-wetting problem, but in an earlier episode we find out that Ray would actually dump water in Robert's bed while he was sleeping to make it look like he wet his bed.
In this episode Ray addresses his mother-in-law Lois as 'mom', and when he does this Marie is within listening distance in the next room and acknowledges this. However in "Call Me Mom", Marie is shocked to hear Ray call Lois 'mom'.
Goof: After Geoffrey is fouled, he takes his free throws on the wrong end of the court.
Ray Romano's kids can be seen during the basketball scenes. Alexandra "Ally" Romano, who plays Ally's friend Molly in many episodes, is in the bleachers, and there's a point at the end of the episode where Ray even sits between his real-life twins, Gregory and Matthew (which, if you remember, were the names that Ray's on-screen twins had in the pilot episode, before they were quickly changed to Geoffrey and Michael).
In "Good Girls", we find out that Marie and Frank got married because she was pregnant with Robert. However in this episode, both Frank and Marie say that she tricked him in to proposing to her.
Look closely in the scene where Ally and the twins come into the house yelling and screaming. They run toward the kitchen, and all of a sudden the noise completely and abruptly stops.
When Ray and Debra go in for the conference with the twins' teacher, you can totally tell that it's the same room used two years ago, in Season 4's "Left Back." For that matter, it seems that the same sets were used for all the kids' classroom scenes throughout the series. For instance, it was Ally's fifth grade classroom in Season 7's "Homework," and her seventh grade room in Season 9's "Ally's F."
After the family returns home after the open house, the kids are seen running into the house first through the kitchen before the adults enter. If you watch closely, you will see one of the twins trip and fall as he is running into the living room.
