In the scene at Ed's place, where he and Monica look towards the skyline of the Strip, the position of the Montecito seems to be wrong, compared to shots from other episodes. It seems to replace Excalibur with the waterfront facing away from the Strip, while in other episodes the Montecito is placed right across the strip from Luxor with the waterfront facing towards the Strip.

Even though they obviously did it on purpose, Danny breaks one of the big rules of scripted television: He looks directly into the camera.
This marks the second time after "Big Ed De-cline", where Mike looks into the camera before driving off in Ed's Aston Martin.

Lance: Have you heard Monica Mancuso is now a magician? She made Ed Deline disappear.
Mike: Good one Lance.. don't quit your day job.
Mike: Well brother, I think you gotta ask yourself, WWED?
Danny: Yeah.. what is that?
Mike: What Would Ed Do?
Delinda: (Talking about how she once was assistant to a magician.) I actually learned a few tricks myself.
Mike: Really, like what?
Delinda: Once we were driving home from a show, I put my hand on his thigh and he turned me into a hotel.
Monica: (to the audience viewing the Sapphire) Not bad, for a waitress from Ohio.
Sam (in a low voice) Waitress, my butt.
Mary: (also in a low voice) I heard she was a stripper.
Sam: I'll bet that's not all she did.
Monica: (looking at Mary's & Sam's low cut dresses) Are we running a Hooters now?
Sam: (looking at Monica's equally low cut suit) If we are, you're in trouble.
