Elliot: Can we get started, please? Because I need to reshoot Noelle for that thong piece.
Elliot: Why not?
Maya: Hi, everyone.
Nina: Maya, darling, were you in the neighborhood, or is this "Take Your Daughter to Work Day"?

The German episode title is "Alles umsonst", meaning "All for Nothing".
George Segal is an accomplished banjo player, and he was well known for playing his banjo on the set during JSM's early days. That was incorporated into this episode and "In Your Dreams".
Veronica Webb becomes the first of several models to appear as themselves on the show.
With this episode, JSM assumed its regular Wednesday time slot. Official NBC photos were probably taken while this episode was being filmed, since Laura San Giacomo wears the same outfit she is wearing in her Season One photo.
The episode title is a play on Steven Vincent Benet's 1938 short story The Devil and Daniel Webster.
